Study: UN Global Warming Forecast Violates Accepted Principles


Not much ice there now is there?
Can you see the poor polar bears?

According to The National Center for Policy Analysis' own website they are a pretty benign group out to solve your problems. Well, they're a think tank and "nonprofit", "nonpartisan" are always the claim of think tanks.
The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research organization, established in 1983.

Ah, also from their website we find this. You can check out the board of directors but it ain't pretty
The NCPA's goal is to develop and promote private alternatives to government regulation and control, solving problems by relying on the strength of the competitive, entrepreneurial private sector.

This is the story.
Predictions of melting ice caps, catastrophic sea level rise and severe floods and droughts are the result of a United Nation's report that violates nearly half of accepted forecasting principles, according to a new study published by the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA). Consequently, the UN report is an unreliable tool for determining future public policy.

Hmmm. So let's see what we have. On the one hand we have the UN which really is trying to help you and everyone else around the world.

On the other hand we have a bunch of fucking wealthy guys who run various funds and companies (including oil, of course) who have a vested interest in keeping climate change legislation from ever becoming law.

Sounds sort of Republican doesn't it?

Which group do you trust more? Just asking.
