I’m afraid that lack of expertise is showing today:
Fiona Johnson claims:
The devastating earthquake followed by typhoon Haiyan that battered the Philippines late last year really hit home for me… [If] poverty and lack of resources aren’t big enough problems to overcome, it is becoming increasingly clear that the poorest communities and nations will face large challenges in trying to deal with the impacts of climate change. The release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Working Group II report on Monday provides yet another wake-up call that the impacts of climate change are not evenly distributed around the world.
Several more claims of the nonsense at the top link.
For your information, Fiona, that typhoon was the third that totally destroyed the city in the last 150 years, which means that history keeps being repeated, especially when the failures of academics around the world believe in their own propaganda instead of learning from the past.
Dr Richard Tol withdrew from the IPCC working group’s claims, not because he was a skeptic, but because the IPCC entered the realms of religion and fantasy.
I note Dr. Richard Tol’s name is not on it, as he said it was too alarmist.
The quality of academics in recent years from Australian Universities seems only matched by the failures of schools to teach history, higher maths and pure science, but go with propaganda and finger pointing instead.
It’s time the Education Department looked at their curriculum and throw out the advocacy of groups such as WWF and Greenpeace, who are just there to line their pockets at the expense of the poor:
Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, the marine biologist who led the IPCC’s Ocean chapter, is a full-blown environmental activist. He recently wrote a politicized foreword to a WWF brochure, and has a long history of employment with both the WWF and Greenpeace.
