Page 14 of the new New Zealand teachers’ resource for the indoctrination of impressionable minds has this quote:
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations
Environment Program’s climate body, has said for over a decade that there is “unequivocal” evidence that the planet is warming, and that the temperature increase is “very likely” due to human-made greenhouse gas emissions.
It is unequivocal that it is very likely.
Everything the IPCC says must be true as there is an appeal to authority further down the page:
The Panel is made up of 2500+ scientific expert reviewers, 800+ contributing authors,
and 450+ lead authors from 130+ countries.
Can’t argue with those numbers!
So let’s check on the principles governing the IPCC shall we?
The role of the IPCC is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant to understanding the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.
If one only looks for human-induced, aka man-made, aka anthropogenic, climate change, take a wild guess at what you are going to find.
Stacked deck, anyone?
