Half of the people reporting on climate science doesn't know what they are writing about and I daily see mistakes.
Take this article as an example. http://www.telegraph...scientists.html
Here they are basically saying: "Scientist you were wrong, see the sea ice is increasing!" Yes it increased from last year but what does it say if we use the data of the last 10 years. Then it would show a decline. And if you asked any scientist last year; What do you expect next years data to show a decline or an increase? The majority of scientist would say we would see an increase of next years data.
And regarding the climate scientists in the media which say extreme weather is on the increase. That cannot be backed by data. We need at least 30 years of data to be able to conclude if extreme weather is increasing due to global warming. So far data doesn't support these statements.
As I said in an earlier post to Little Fish. In theory we should see an increase in hurricanes, However observational data is showing no increasing trend. However what does the media say. They report what should be happening in Theory and when I hurricane does form they jump straight on the wagon and call out climate change as the reason. However most of them is just down to weather.
Don't believe what the Media, IPCC or any scientist is saying. Study/research it yourself and you will discover the truth.
I think you will find that the IPCC disagrees with you on that statement, your going to have to wait to read it and see in what specific way they do.
