April 9, 2014: "Comprehensive Report Documents Beneficial Impacts of Global Warming", by James Taylor, JD, Senior Fellow, The Heartland Institute; Managing Editor, Environment and Climate News, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.
"The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change released a 1,063-page report documenting global warming’s beneficial impact on the biosphere. The report, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts, provides a comprehensive analysis of the impact of global warming on plants, terrestrial animals, aquatic life, and human well-being.
"The new volume is the fifth produced by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change. A sixth volume, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Human Welfare, Energy, and Policies, is scheduled for release in May.
"More than 30 scientists served as authors and reviewers for the new volume. The volume cites more than 1,000 peer-reviewed studies supporting the conclusion that global warming is not causing substantial harm to the biosphere. This directly counters alarmist assertions by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
“Biological Impacts broadly tracks and critiques the work of IPCC’s Working Group II…. It appears IPCC is continuing its pattern of selectively reporting data to present an alarmist view of the impacts of climate change,” the report explains."

Read "The Coming Paradigm Shift on Climate", March 27, 2014, by Professor S. Fred Singer, one of the lead organizers of the NIPCC project.
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
“By ignoring observational evidence that does not support their politically-motivated conclusions, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) promotes unjustified fear about climate change. The latest report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts, presents crucially important evidence that the IPCC ignored, information that will help the public, media and politicians to understand more, and so fear less, about the consequences of climate change.”
