New international report on climate change is especially dire, but some question if the conclusions are "fixed"


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued a new report today, discussed on CNN, warning of a near 9 degree raise in global temperature since pre-industrial levels.  CNN discussed the report here is a story by Steve Almasy, link. Here is the Longer Policy Report original from IPC, link.   .
  
John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel, has distanced himself from the claims, saying that the climate change proponents hire researchers to reach pre-judged conclusions.  But Weather Channel content tends to ratify climate change, and is often alarmist with its headlines.
    
But back in 2007, even Doug Hill of WJLA-7 had said at a high school forum that the climate change debate was largely “political”.
