IPCC’s New Chairman Rebukes Climate Hysteria And Misleading Claims


The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) has welcomed the rebuke of exaggerated climate hype and alarm by the IPCC’s new chairman, Professor Jim Skea.

In interviews with German news media over the weekend the new head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said it was wrong and misleading for climate activists to imply that temperature increases of 1.5 degrees Celsius posed an existential threat to humanity. [emphasis, links added]

“The world won’t end if it warms by more than 1.5 degrees,” Skea told Deutsche Welle.

“If you constantly communicate the message that we are all doomed to extinction, then that paralyzes people and prevents them from taking the necessary steps to get a grip on climate change,” he said.

Skea’s criticism of exaggerated climate alarm comes as he predicted the world would exceed the global warming target of 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels, adding that governments around the world had failed to adopt sufficiently ambitious policies.

Dr. Benny Peiser, the GWPF’s director, welcomed the timely IPCC message:

“Jim Skea’s warnings about the detrimental impact of unjustified climate alarmism is a breath of fresh air and a welcome intervention. The new IPCC chairman seems to recognize that the political climate is changing fast.

“As European governments have begun to pause, water down, and roll back Net Zero pledges and plans, developing nations have no intention to abandon their relentless use of coal, oil, and gas. The new IPCC chairman seems to have accepted that the 1.5C climate threshold and its Net Zero policy implications are no longer politically viable.”

“The Global Warming Policy Foundation has warned for more than a decade that climate mitigation policies are highly likely to fail and that governments would be well advised to prioritize effective and relatively low-cost adaptation measures.

In the eyes of many climate activists and journalists, limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius has become the decisive benchmark for ‘saving the planet.’

Climate activists and green politicians are reluctant to admit that the 1.5-degree limit has become non-viable as governments around the world are pushing back on Net Zero policies.

In 2018, the IPCC warned that humanity had only twelve years left to prevent a global climate catastrophe if global warming could not be limited to 1.5C degrees Celsius.

Its special report concluded that global CO2 emissions would have to be reduced by about 45 percent by 2030 and net zero by 2050 to prevent climate catastrophe.

No surprise, then, that green activists set up new organizations (such as ‘Extinction Rebellion’ and ‘Last Generation’), which attempt to prevent the rise of global temperatures beyond the 1.5C threshold.

In a dramatic speech to MPs in the British House of Commons in 2019, a sixteen-year-old Swedish schoolgirl prophesized the collapse of global civilization – to the hour:

“Around the year 2030, 10 years 252 days and 10 hours away from now, we will be in a position where we set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control, that will most likely lead to the end of our civilization as we know it. That is unless, in that time, permanent and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society have taken place, including a reduction of CO2 emissions by at least 50%.”

Greta Thunberg emphasized that her prediction was not based on her personal assumption, but was based on a global, scientific consensus“These projections are backed up by scientific facts, concluded by all nations through the IPCC.”

“We’re the last generation who can stop the collapse of our society,” claim the “Last Generation” climate movement.

However, such doomsday predictions are not limited to apocalyptic climate activists.

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has warned repeatedly that humanity is facing “collective suicide” due to climate change, while former prime minister Boris Johnson warned global leaders at the UN climate summit in Glasgow (COP26) that it was ‘one minute to midnight’ to prevent climate catastrophe.

  1. ‘Greta Thunberg emphasized that her prediction WAS NOT BASED ON HER PERSONAL ASSUMPTION (My emphasis) but was based on a global, scientific consensus: “These projections are backed up by scientific facts, concluded by all nations through the IPCC.”’

    Curiously, that WASN’T what she was saying at the UN a couple of years ago; How DARE she be proven wrong (Again)..

    Hopefully all her sychophants will be fired and her avaricious parents will now be loosing LOTS of money.



  2. Dont forget these freaks are lighting fires to panic the plebs and make them think Climate Change is coming, Extinction Rebellion is a bunch of fools fiddling with kids while Hawaii burns as for CO2 its a beneficial trace gas that grows plants and feeds the planet, which you wouldn’t want if your plan was staving the plebs to death after they didn’t die as planned by the Jabberwocky ill go further, Green Politian’s equals Nazi ideology.
    Look up the nazi party posters from the 30s rinse, repeat 100 years later, typical socialist’s never had an original idea, even their tactics are repeats of failures of the past.



  3. The 1.5C figure was plucked out the air by the head scientist of the Podstam Institute in Germany a long time ago because a senior politician said they really need a ‘sound bite” to be able to sell the story to the public. The scientist has said a few times since there is no science behind the figure.
