73-year-old scientist asks, “Why does the IPCC ignore the
oceans? The top 2½ metres of all sea-water contain as much heat as the
total amount of heat in the atmosphere. Why has the topmost kilometre of
the oceans turned colder during the last five years? We don’t know.
Until we understand what is happening with the heat in the oceans, the
models which aim to predict the climate are totally useless…

“No, I’m not surprised about the fuss surrounding current climate
research… IPCC is run by an intimate clique of only a few dozen
people… a small clique that tolerates no contradiction, and equates
dissenters to Holocaust deniers.”

“I’m much more anxious about the cooling of the earth,” says Tennekes.

Earlier in Feb, IPCC was asked by the Dutch government to explain the figure which indicates that only 26 percent of the country is below sea level.
In a note sent to a news agency, the IPCC admitted that the figure of 55 percent includes the area of Netherland which was actually at the ‘risks of being flooded’.
Admitting the mistake, IPCC said in the note that the 938-page Fourth Assessment Report should actually mean “either the area below the highest sea-level reached during storms, or the total area of the country that is prone to flooding from the sea and rivers.”
