During the course of the Fielding/Wong/Sackett interviews, Senator Fielding handed Ms Sackett a copy of the NIPCC report.
Near the end of the meeting Senator Fielding presented Senator Wong and the Chief Scientist with the hefty hard copy of the NIPCC, which is a compendium of the relevant climate science that “demonstrates overwhelming scientific support for the position that the warming of the twentieth century was moderate and not unprecedented, that its impact on human health and wildlife was positive, and that carbon dioxide probably is not the driving factor behind climate change.”
It is similar in length and complexity to the IPCC Assessment Report 4, but unlike the IPCC report it is easy to read—presumably because it is intended to be understood rather than to intimidate. Presumably Senator Wong and the Chief Scientist cannot now say they weren’t informed of the scientific evidence that carbon dioxide emissions are not the cause of global warming.
Due diligence would demand that she read this report. Did she?
After Senator Fielding presented the NIPCC report, David said "Presumably Senator Wong and the Chief Scientist cannot now say they weren’t informed of the scientific evidence that carbon dioxide emissions are not the cause of global warming."
This report has peer-reviewed anti alarmist papers. Did Ms Sackett look at the NIPCC report; if she did, did she miss the peer-reviewed links? Did she miss the mention of the Petition Project?
In case she did, it has been signed by more than 30,000 scientists.
Part of the Petition says:
"There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth."
31,478 American scientists have signed this petition, including 9,029 with PhDs.
