Update 9/27/2012: To SkepticalScience.com readers - please note that an extreme Hollywood leftist and global warming believer thinks that U.S. moon landings were faked.
Read here. The IPCC is a leftist-oriented, UN political agency. It has been assigned the known objective of convincing the public that global warming has been caused by human CO2. In order to accomplish this, it must dismiss or minimize any non-CO2 science evidence that undermines that objective, even if a major science organization's research, such as NASA, reports otherwise.
This is a common result of left-liberal organizations that proceed in an "ends justify means" fashion - thus, empirical science becomes the enemy.
The IPCC's refusal to utilize a corrected temperature database to compensate for the large UHI effect in its analysis and climate models is scientifically unacceptable. The public would have every right to consider the current IPCC findings a form of scientific fraud that are unreliable. From page 107 of the 2009 Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change:

Do you have contempt for Hollywood celebrities who demand others to live without fossil fuels but they live and flaunt huge carbon footprint lifestyles? Welcome to the club, and BTW, you're a racist!

Read here. As the AGW CO2 hypothesis continues to collapse under mounting weight of opposing empirical evidence, the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and a multitude of world's best research facilities, are conducting new research and making new discoveries that point to the Sun as a principal driver of climate change.

While the scientific evidence (not simulated model results) continues to pile up that that the globe faces a global cooling period for next 10 to 30 years, here's the star "science" reporter of Washington Post repeating non-scientific speculation ("estimates") of the world's leading scaremongers. Just two weeks ago, a top IPCC climate modeler dropped a bombshell and told the world that global warming is kaput. Is she unaware of this, or is she allowing herself to be used by über-alarmists, or is she really just this dumb? Your pick.
Read here. Our global civilization is conducting an unprecedented, unplanned experiment (major global recession) in reducing human CO2 emissions, and it's not having much impact on CO2 levels in the atmosphere. During 2008, growth of CO2 emissions was slashed by half. For 2009, emissions will be reduced by a considerable 2.5%. Yet, as the above graph shows,......

Source here. For 12-month periods ending in August, the U.S. Northeast Region, as defined by NCDC, including New York has experienced a cooling trend over the last 13 years that amounts to a -4.40 F degree decline per century. Global warming? (click image to enlarge)
Source here. In order for increased human CO2 emissions to cause accelerated global warming, the climate models need to assume that CO2 remains in the atmosphere for a very long time, up to 100 to 200+ years. (click on image to enlarge)
Since the IPCC's task is to prove any global warming is due to human CO2 emissions, they decided to proclaim that CO2 was long-lived in the atmosphere - a fabricated assumption.
They did this despite the overwhelming majority of peer-reviewed studies (see chart) finding that CO2 in the atmosphere remained there a short time.
Literally, a fabricated assumption, driven by political agenda, became a cornerstone of fraudulent climate model science. As a result, billions spent on climate models that are unable to predict climate with any accuracy.
Read here. It's also a T.G.I.F. moment, but Pielke Jr. is always a valuable read no matter which day it is. It's refreshing to hear from an objective scientist who believes in GW but sees the lunacy that the climate models have been used for and what they have become. One hint for dealing with the lunacy: ignore the idiot (especially any politician) who suggests "today's weather incident is consistent with climate model predictions." Talk about cherry-picking.
Read here. More scientific evidence that undercuts AGW hypothesis and alarmist catastrophic scare-claims.
Read here and here. The articles provides some insight into the failures and why they will continue. How bad have the models failed? The 20+ IPCC climate models used predicted global warming for the past 10 year period. As one can see, those predictions are not even close. The climate modelers' argument that natural cooling has overwhelmed CO2 global warming is inconsistent unless they also claim that the majority of previous warming was also natural, not CO2 caused.

Read here. Across the globe, the land, the atmosphere and the seas have been cooling over the last several years. For the global warming research community this is not good, especially with future funding depending on the success of Copenhagen talks in December. Copenhagen needed WARMING, and it looks like NOAA delivered.
Read here. From the caves of New Zealand, continuing research by expert scientists confirm that Medieval Warming Period was a global phenomenon (using isotope proxy temperature records more accurate than tree rings). The fabricated "hockey stick" temperature hypothesis continues to fail validation by empirical temperature research and measurements. (click image to enlarge)
Read here. The religion of environmentalism is simply the means to gain control and power over people, usually via different forms of punishment. Most forget that Hitler was the world's first political environmentalist; fortunately, we have today's self-important Germans reminding us of the dangers of persons on fanatical crusades, who literally will sacrifice the individual for the "good" of the community. We've been there and done that - death trains for all non-believers doesn't work so well.
Whether the more accurate term is eco-Nazis or eco-fascists, Germans are not the only ones espousing fanatical environmentalism and world governance concepts. Read additional articles here, here, here, here, here, and here about the environmental fascism/governance that has been on recent display.
So, the next time you see a Greenpeace or "Save the Whales" or "Meat is Gross" or other self-righteous environmental bumper sticker, think eco-Nazis, because ultimately, that's what it means.

Read here. Back in 2005, science thought they were rid of this vampire that was draining the credibility from the climate scientific body. So far this year though, the discredited 'hockey stick' methodologies have been revived in a string of studies including, Antarctica, hurricanes and most recently, Arctic temperature reconstructions. Until the peer-reviewed journals make a decision to turn from tabloid advocate science, the studies based on fraudulent techniques will still live.
Read here. The below are satellite temperature maps of lower atmosphere. The left map is August 2009 and the right, August 2004. The blue areas of the maps signify non-warming areas. Note that the blue areas, non-warming regions, dominate across both maps. We've been told warming is global, which obviously is not true despite politician and MSM claims. (click to enlarge images)
