How many times can you be wrong about a matter of great importance and still be taken seriously and not be fired?
The answer is: you can never be fired for being wrong in the right direction.
The Experts making statements about how dire the climate is have been wrong for decades, and they are still wrong in their sparkling new IPCC Climate Assessment Report 6 released Monday.
The difference between “AR6”, and ARs 1–5, is not so much in the kind of errors made, for these haven’t changed at all, but in the certainty expressed in them. It’s only a slight exaggeration to say that somebody did a “Find & Replace” of every instance of “very likely” in AR5 and changed them to “virtually certain”.
The rhetoric has been amplified, but the mistakes remain. The Experts who write these reports have never lost any authority for their repeated blunders, nor will they be taken any less than seriously for making them again now.
Because they are always wrong in the direction our rulers want them to be.
