Ever Expanding: In discussing the
Sixth Assessment Report of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC, AR6, 2021 to 2023), researcher Andy May produces an interesting
statistic – the ever-growing length of the reports. The first assessment report
was 168 pages, the second 572 pages, AR5 was 1535 pages and AR6 2391 pages.
May also shows a graph of the “5-Year Running Mean of Tropical Temperature
CMIP5 Anomalies of 300-200 hPa [units of pressure related to altitude] Layer
(1979-2019) by Ross McKitrick and John Christy (2020). The difference between
the temperature trends projected by the models and observed atmospheric
temperature trends is increasing. So, the reports get longer as the physical
evidence supporting them gets weaker. True bureaucracy in action.
