The New IPCC Report Is More Doom and Gloom

August 18, 2021

The United Nations’ IPCC recently released its Sixth Assessment Report on climate change. The report wrongly blames humanity for a nonexistent “crisis.”

The United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) on climate change earlier this week. The "Summary for Policymakers" section of the report continues to blame humanity for many observed climate trends.

Mainstream media sources have jumped on AR6 as reason to blame humanity for climate change. A CBS NEWS headline reads "Island nations react to devastating U.N. climate change report: 'We are on the edge of extinction.'"

H. Sterling Burnett is the host of the "Environment & Climate News" podcast for The Heartland Institute. He is also a Heartland senior fellow on environmental policy and the managing editor of Environment & Climate News.

Burnett brings on two more experts for the discussion. They are:

James Taylor - Taylor is the president of The Heartland Institute. He has presented energy and environment analysis on CNN, CNN Headline News, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Channel, MSNBC, PBS News Hour, PBS Frontline, CBS Evening News, ABC World News, and other TV and radio outlets across the country. He has been published in virtually every major newspaper in the country.

Anthony Watts - Watts is a senior fellow for environment and climate at The Heartland Institute. He has been in the weather business both in front of, and behind the camera as an on-air television meteorologist since 1978, and currently does daily radio forecasts. He has created weather graphics presentation systems for television, specialized weather instrumentation, as well as co-authored peer-reviewed papers on climate issues. He operates the most viewed website in the world on climate, the award-winning website wattsupwiththat.com. His work on climate issues, specifically the problems with temperature measurements via his surfacestations.org website, has been cited worldwide in books, studies and government reports.
