UN climate change chief impressed by China

China is taking all the necessary steps to tackle the adverse impacts of climate change, chairman of the UN Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Rajendra Pachauri has said.

At a media workshop organized by the UN Development Programme in Delhi last week, Pacahuri said he was impressed by what Chinese scientists and meteorologists had done to fight climate change.

Pachauri-led IPCC shared this year's Nobel Peace Prize with green campaigner and US former vice-president Al Gore.

"The facilities, capabilities and infrastructure developed by China Meteorological Administration (CMA) have served the people very well," Pachauri said.

For example, China has 2,400 observation stations to monitor weather and climate change, he said. China has a TV channel on the weather , too, and it reaches everyone.

China has been doing a great job as a developing country, Pachauri said, with its scientists showing a very positive attitude toward working with international researchers to fight climate change.

"On the Fourth Assessment Report, China has been extremely active," he said. "A number of Chinese scientists have contributed to the report. The Chinese government has been very deeply engaged in every stage of the process of the report."

The IPCC Fourth Assessment Report, "Climate Change 2007", will be released in Spain next week. It will be the latest in a series of IPCC assessments providing the most comprehensive scientific evidence on climate change. China is seeking a way to develop a low-carbon economy, Pachauri said, and he will help it achieve it if he can.

It's not about CO2 it's about ozone depletion, the evidence for CO2 fell away yet the evidence for climate change grew? We have been accusing greenhouse gasses for so long we didn't know what else there could be, so we kept accusing greenhouse gases like CO2. In the late 1940's the temperature fell for 5 years while both CO2 and solar variance were rising thus ruling them out plain and simple. Yet what did happen was the largest shift in man made radio frequency propagation through the atmosphere. The IPCC has overlooked the fact that our global temperature has been following the rise in broadcast technology for 100 years. It was discovered 30 years ago that radiowaves from a scientific broadcast transmitter could stimulate a known ozone depletion mechanism called electron precipitation. The US knows this and that's why they won't join CO2 restrictions. Don't buy into CO2 until we run tests on electron precipitation. CFC levels have dropped since 2000, but largest ozone hole on record was October 2006! There are two things we put into the atmosphere air and radio pollution, you have to recognize broadcast and it's effects on the environment. Not to do so is blind!!
