"It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!"
Upton Sinclair's quote seems apt when comparing IPCC models with observed reality.
Here is a besotted ABC featuring the executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christiana Figueres. She is paid to say scary things for organisations like the ABC to broadcast.
UN climate chief Christiana Figueres calls for global action amid NSW bushfires
The United Nations says the New South Wales bushfires are an example of "the doom and gloom" the world may be facing without vigorous action on climate change.
The executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christiana Figueres, says the fires prove the world is "already paying the price of carbon".
"The World Meteorological Organisation has not established the direct link between this wildfire and climate change yet, but what is absolutely clear is that the science is telling us there are increasing heatwaves in Asia, Europe and Australia," she told CNN.
"These [heatwaves] will continue. They will continue in their intensity and in their frequency."
The ABC seems very keen on the UN, UN people and UN causes like Syria. The UN must be very pleased with Australian taxpayers funding that care and uncritical attention.
