Great article Mish.
Few other points:
IPCC was started to analyze and collect in their reports studies about human caused climate change so if they made a report that stated that climate change is not caused by humans they would make themselves redundant and nobody ever made a report about themselves that would cause their job to be useless and lead to their firing.
IPCC is a self-selecting clique and the more alarmist study one makes the more likely they will be invited to be part of IPCC. For example Michael Mann was invited to IPCC to collect studies and write the reports after his famous and debunked hockeystick so every climate change "scientist" has an incentive to make alarmist studies to get into IPCC.
Once people are in IPCC they can pick their own studies to be included in the IPCC and getting your reports in IPCC reports of course increases scientists prestige and makes them famous and enables them to get more funding.
EU gives grants to study human caused climate change so if you study that you get grant money for your studies but if once getting such grant you would find that there is no human caused climate change then that would be the last grant you got.
Does USA still have scientific grants like this or has Trump stopped them?
There are hundreds of billions at stake in the EU cap-and-trade scheme that EU gave into private hands. Goldman Sachs runs the EU cap-and-trade scheme and those companies that have water power get carbon credits to sell to other companies like coal plants and factories. Many banks and investment companies also invest in the carbon credits and EU recently removed large amount of credits from the market to increase the fight against climate change and those that had invested in carbon credits that were not removed by EU made 400% times their investment after the price of carbon credits rose.
After this 400% increase many companies started closing their factories so the coming EU depression is partly caused by EU through their removal of carbon credits from the markets to intentionally boost the prices of carbon credits to fight climate change.
If EU had a clue they would have handled their cap-and-trade scheme themselves so that EU would have sold the credits themselves and funded all investments into fighting climate change by selling the credits and kept the prices stable or slightly increasing instead of 400% jumps.
Somebody from Goldman Sachs and energy companie with water power got into EU bureaucrats ears and convinced them that it is better to just give a gift of hundreds of billions in value to them and let bankers and investors speculate in carbon credits.
So EU created a never ending siphoning mechanism of money from coal plants and factories into the pockets of bankers and investors and companies with water power and gave hundreds of billions of money to them instead of using it for EU budget and climate change investments.
The scarier the predictions and the more dire the studies the more the scientists get publicity which leads to young eager female scientists and students wanting to work with them to save the world and the more publicity one gets the easier it is to get grant funding.
Many scientists hide their raw data and methods of their studies so nobody can replicate them using basic scientific process and confirm they get the same results with the data using the same methods so climate change science is a black box pseudo science.
Many parts of the world have complately invented temperatures since there is no measuring stations but they still have temperatures put into these areas in the studies and "surprisingly" these invented temperatures are always very high.
The temperatures are now in many studies not just measured temperatures and invented temperatures but also include corals and tree growth etc. from which the temperatures are supposedly calculated from and fail to take into account that in many places tree growth is mainly dependent on rains and not temperatures and similar biases.
Urban heat island effect creates increasing temperatures when the measuring station surroundings get more asphalt roads and parking lots and more buldings which trap suns rays and get heated as a result and then release this heat.
Also increase in car traffic has an effect as does increase in air traffic for those measuring stations that are in airports due to the exhaust heat from cars and planes.
The Eastern Europe closed many mesuring stations so there is less measuring stations and more invented temperatures since the 1990's.
The measuring stations have their places switched sometimes to a new place nearby and in Pokka measuring station in Kittila Finland locals are complaining that they stopped measuring temperatures from the old site and built a new site higher up and the new measuring station has 5 degrees celsius warmer measurements than the old one when it is winter so this change of measuring station caused a 5 degree celsius raise in temperatures aka 5 degree celsius global warming just by changing he place of the measuring station.
The locals are upset because Pokka, Kittila is famously the coldest place in finland with measurement of -51,5 celsius and they think that nobody they will never break that record and get the massive publicity which would follow.
All the climate change models have been wrong so far when time passes and actual temperatures are measured and instead of admitting they were wrong they just adjust the models to cause their charts to copy reality so far and make just as outlandish predictions for the future.
The media is in total hysteria and IPCC reports are treated as sacred truth despite IPCC being regularly wrong so far.
The original report by UNEP before they started IPCC predicted up to +7 degrees celsius global warming by now and island nations should have diasappeared into the sea in the 2000's already when in actuality island nations are increasing in size except those where erosion has a bit larger effect after the islanders have lifted huge amounts of rough sand from the seabanks surrounding their island to make cement.
