A new Friends of Science study by research director Ken Gregory shows that the Canadian climate model CanESM2, used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to predict global warming, fails to replicate temperature observations by hundreds of percent – predicting extreme heat when the reality observed is only nominal warming. Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) October 31, 2013 Friends of Science have released a new in-depth study of the predictive climate models of the Canadian...

The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report demonstrates that the organization lacks credibility as the report backtracks on previous climate change claims while making other statements not supported by evidence say Friends of Science. With no global surface warming for 16 years, the IPCC are at a loss to explain this ‘hiatus’; Friends of Science say simply the IPCC’s original premise was wrong - the sun drives climate change, not carbon dioxide (C02). Calgary,...
