Inconvenient truths the climate change panel ignores


The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is yet again warning that nations must act to reduce their CO2 emissions and save the planet.

So it’s a pity that China, India and other countries are not listening.

No word from the IPCC of Germany razing a 12,000-year-old forest to expand a dirty opencast lignite mine.

No word that the world has oil resources for 53 years, with more discoveries being made (according to BP in 2014), natural gas 230 years and coal 150 years, that the world population will be 11.2billion by 2100 or that the 1.28billion vehicles in the world will increase to 2billion by 2035.

The anti-meat lobby say that cutting out meat will reduce CO2 emissions but do not mention the 1billion cattle and 1billion sheep in the world.

Strangely no mention of the UN-backed scientific report which says that stopping climate change will cost the world £1.8trillion – that is £1,800 billion or £1,800,000 million or £1,800,000,000,000 – every year for the next 20 years, so where is it coming from?

Could the IPCC please mention these ‘Inconvenient Truths’?
