Science is not about doing 'double blind laboratory experiments. This is possibly a good definition of what science is about…
‘the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.’
BTW, they do do double blind testing in political science. It is test procedure, designed to eliminate biased results, in which the identity of those receiving a treatment is concealed from both administrators and subjects until after the study is completed. It is a testing technique often used data collection such as surveys and other analytical technical to remove human inherent biases.
Most of the scientific community which provides commentary on climate change and is used by the IPCC does not have climate science qualifications. If we dismiss the thoughts and analysis done by individuals who are not climate science qualifications, we should likewise dismiss the IPCC research…something which would be a ludicrous suggestion.
The IPCC also has political scientists on its panel of scientists, which shows that they value the expertise and experience of political scientists in morning forward.
You may be surprised how wrong this statement is and is incorrect information reported in the media and communicated by activists.
On a high level, China is rated by the Climate Action Tracker as Highly insufficient while Australia is slightly better as Insufficient.
China’s CO2 emissions are projected to be around 118% higher than 2000 levels in 2025 (even greater in 2030), while Australia’s will have a overall reduction of CO2 emissions. There is conjecture within the politics/some media to whether theses reductions will achieve 26% reduction levels (Paris agreement).
If one looks at raw CO2e emissions, China is on track to increase its CO2 emissions in 2025 to about 16,000 million tonnes (- an increase from about 7,000 billion tonnes in 2000 levels), while Australia’s contribution is forecast to be about 560 million tonnes (a considerable reduction on 2005 levels, but currently may nor achieve the 26% target level).
China may achieve its Paris goals, just like Australia…however China’s Paris pledge is quite different to Australia and results in enormous CO2e growth to allow for further future economic development. Any reductions achieved by Australia and other parts of the world will be potentially swamped by the increase in emissions by China.
