IPCC weather report a major setback for warmists looking for the smoking cigarette butts of global warming

Only a week to go before the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) begins in Durban, South Africa, where world governments will again attempt to draft a global plan to control carbon emissions so as to stave off catastrophic man-made global warming. At the moment, however, the world’s governments seem more intent on warding off catastrophic government-made fiscal disasters. If for no other reason, Durban is heading for the dustbin of UN climate meetings.

But distraction with economic and fiscal crises isn’t the only reason Durban seems doomed. Another issue would be what looks like a growing realism in climate science, including within the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the science arm of the UN climate machinery. In a summary report last Friday, the ­IPCC rang climate alarm bells on extreme weather events that weren’t all that alarming.

The report summarized the “key findings” of a Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters, to be released next February. For warmists looking for the smoking cigarette butts of climate change, the report was a major setback. Despite a few headlines that mostly exaggerated its findings, the report actually concluded there was little or no evidence of man-made global warming to date as measured in extreme-weather events. As for the future, nothing much can be expected for another 20 or 30 years. The big impacts were projected way off at the end of the 21st century.

The report was so lame as a climate-warning device that Media Matters, the U.S. watchdog group, observed Monday that it was “almost totally ignored” by the TV networks. Not a word on CNN, Fox, MSNBC, ABC or CBS. Media Matters’ concern was that the key headline message — warning of more extreme heat waves, floods, droughts and storms — had failed to reach the people.
