Leaked IPCC Report Used by Critics to Claim Global Warming Is Caused by Solar Forcing

There are 10 comments on the Inhabitat story from Dec 17, 2012, titled Leaked IPCC Report Used by Critics to Claim Global Warming Is Caused by Solar Forcing. In it, Inhabitat reports that:

On Thursday, a writer named Alec Rawls posted a leaked draft version of a portion of the upcoming Fifth Assessment Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and claimed that the report acknowledges "strong evidence for enhanced solar forcing." He claimed that the IPCC's admission "changes everything" and that "climate alarmists can't ... (more)

Admission????

Enhances solar forcing is exactly what the CO2 is doing. It increases the solar energy retained by the Greenhouse Effect, so the suns energy is captured and Earths temperature must rise to compensate by increasing the heat radiated.

Clearly it is not useful to question fools about the subject. Including Alec Rawls who clearly doesn't UNDERSTAND the subject.

"Rawls obtained the draft AR5 report by registering as an “expert reviewer.” IPCC releases drafts to large numbers of such reviewers in order to obtain broader commentary in advance of the release of its final reports."

It does NOT check credentials of those asking for the report draft. Clearly Rawls was not such a reviewer except in his own delusions.

"Environmental journalist Graham Readfearn explains that the term “expert reviewer” does not imply scientific credentials; in fact,“practically anyone can register for these positions using an online form.”

"On receiving a copy of the draft, a reviewer agrees not to cite, quote, or distribute the report. Rawls justifies his leaking the report by claiming that the “public’s right to know” trumps any confidentiality agreement he made and that the AR5 drafts “ought to fall within the reach of the Freedom of Information Act.”

The Public does NOT have a right to proprietary information whose individual contributors still own copywright. The only public right to know comes AFTER the final draft is published and it becomes 'public domain'. I hope that there are penalties under the law that can be applied here. Even where classified information or private emails of interest to the public is released, the party doing the releasing is NOT immune to penalties. Just ask Bradley Manning.

How do you turn this:
It is extremely likely [">95% probability"] that human activities have caused more than half of the observed increase in global average surface temperature since the 1950s. There is high confidence ["About 8 out of 10 chance"] that this has caused large-scale changes in the ocean, in the cryosphere, and in sea level in the second half of the 20th century. Some extreme events have changed as a result of anthropogenic influence.

Toxic ego-bound AGW deniers have been trying to get astronomers to say global warming is occurring from anything other than man-made GHGs. Of course, astronomers have a lot more intelligence, training & education than toxic ego-bound AGW deniers can ever get(because toxic ego-bound AGW deniers can't get science & mathematics degrees).

No global warming is caused by global cooling. Depends on which end of the spectrum your on.

Since phdudd's intellect is stone cold dead, he gives off no readings in any spectrum.

Your meaningless drivel has no effect on the remaining readers of topix global warming. Haven't you noticed that all the SANE deniers have left. That just leaves you.

So that would make us one and the same. Do you have a ghost writer here or is it our imagination that your post just isn’t here. To make it simple for you to understand your reply makes you one of the INSANE that post on topix global warming. So to correct your math misstatement that would leave two. You and I bud.

Of course it's the sun. Always has been. And it is doing just exactly what was predicted.
