The newly released 2022 IPCC climate change report is terrifying. But, unfortunately, the IPCC is still not disclosing that our climate future is about twice as bad as they are willing to admit!
Here is the crucial corrective information you need to reach a higher climate fact accuracy level than that found in the IPCC's newest climate report.
a.) The report shows that extreme weather events linked to climate change like floods and heatwaves are hitting humans and other species much harder than previous assessments indicated.
b.) This is due to the IPCC's past assessments being underestimated by as much as 20-40+ percent due to a myriad of IPPC politicization and calculation error issues as discussed in the documentation links on this page.
a.) The IPCC reports spell out how the world must take ambitious climate action within this decade to keep warming to within 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial temperatures. That requires decreasing carbon pollution by 45 percent from 2010 levels by 2030 and reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
b.) The truth is we must reduce total global fossil fuel use by 75% by 2025 to prevent the extinction of half of humanity by mid-century. If we are lucky enough to do that, we might keep the average global temperature under a 1.9C to 2.5C increase.
Example 3: (Every coastal city worldwide should take notice and start preparing!)
a.) The IPPC predicts about a 1-foot global sea-level rise by 2050.
b.) By 2050, global sea levels will rise by 2-3 feet and by as much as 7-9+feet by 2100.
a.) The IPCC says that humans and nature are being pushed beyond their abilities to adapt. Still, there remains a brief window of opportunity to avoid the very worst of climate change.
b.) That is true, but the critical information they omit is that loss of our ability to adapt will happen within the next 3-9 years because our last window of opportunity to control our climate futures will also close within the next 3-9 years!
a.) The IPCC also says that many of the impacts of global warming are now simply "irreversible."
b.) That is true. But, once again, the IPCC fails to tell us that because we have squandered four decades when we should have been steadily cutting global fossil fuel use, the die-off of half of humanity by mid-century is now unavoidable --- no matter what we do!
a.) Over 40% of the world's population is "highly vulnerable" to climate change.
b.) Within the next 3-9 years, over 70% of the world's population will be experiencing an exponential explosion of climate consequences, for which there is grossly insufficient preparation or resilience.
Here are documentation links to the IPCC's underestimation and other errors and issues
The immediate survival of humanity is at stake. We can no longer rely upon the IPPC's climate calculations to survive. (Please note: In the links below, we are not attacking or criticizing any of the thousands of hard-working and honest volunteer scientists worldwide who submit their climate research to the IPCC. Instead, we call attention to the IPCC's administrative processes and politicized leadership. They are the ones who alter and contort the real climate science received by these scientists into 5-7 year climate summary reports. Before they are released, these 5-7 year summary reports must get the line-by-line sign-off of the IPCC's major funders, the fossil fuel producing nations, and the fossil fuel-dependent nations.)

Click here to see precisely how the IPCC literally "cooked the books" and grossly skewed the current IPCC global fossil fuel reduction calculations far lower than they should be by including unproven and non-existent "carbon sucking unicorn" technology into their projections. This corruption and falsification of the global carbon reduction calculations allowed the major fossil fuel producing nations and fossil-fuel industries to continue to do "business as usual."

Click here to see the IPCC's huge atmospheric methane calculation problem. This again produces a huge drop in the reliability and usefulness of the IPCC climate prediction and remedy work.
Click here to see the latest 2022 IPCC climate change summary report on the critical climate sensitivity error. Because of only this ongoing climate sensitivity error, the IPCC's newest climate consequence predictions, timeframes, and remedial action information will be underestimated by as much as 25% or more. (This 25% does not include the effect of the other IPCC errors described in the links just above.)
Click here to see a new study showing that the IPCC does not include many critical climate system factors in its computer climate modeling. Those missing factors equal wrong and distorted results. This Feb 2022 paper strongly refutes the absurd IPCC claim that the Arctic sea ice melt-decline is reversible. It is not reversible, and that is a monster problem for humanity's weather, seasonal climate, and future!
All of the above linked decades of IPCC error, calculation, and polarization problems mean that the IPCC is an unreliable partner for truthful and accurate climate change information. Their climate consequence predictions, timeframes, and remedial action information are grossly underestimated by 25 - 50 %+ and possibly more!
