More Fiction from the IPCC October 4, 2013 11:59 AM | Tagged as peer review

WSJ October 1, 2013 PageA14 “Climate of Uncertainty” (editorial)

WSJ September 25, 2013, Page A17   “Warming UP for Another Climate Change Report” By Donna Laframboise


This week the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued another of its series of reports, out every six years, that concludes once again that we are all headed for disaster from global warming unless we give up our way of life, our economic well-being, and our freedoms. The leftist Big Enviros have taken over the UN. Socialism is their ideology. They will get us to bend, then break from our capitalist greatness, not matter how much they must lie to get their way.

The IPCC report is a Summary for Policy Makers that is “edited” by a Big Enviro by the name of Rejendra Pachauri who claims the Summary is peer reviewed. The fact is they meet in a big room and edit the words to make it fit their ideology. Isn’t it interesting that the Summary is out before the data is compiled and made available for peer review? Isn’t it interesting the Mr. Pachauri writes for Greenpeace and won the Green Crusader award this year from an advertising organization.

Laframboise recounts her analysis of the 2007 Summary. Her work shows the writers were heavily biased as paid professionals in the Big Enviro movement. Peer reviewed, my fat capitalist foot! The only thing close to peer review is from the Inter Academy Council, a network of national science academies. The IAC has noted that the IPCC tome is written by too many ”politically correct appointments” which have “insufficient scientific competence to do anything useful.”

In 2007, the IPCC frightened everyone in the media about the Himalayan glaciers which will disappear by 2035.  Seems the peer reviewed work for that astounding piece of global warming hysteria was a biased publication with NO DATA by World Wildlife Fund…another Big Enviro.

The 2013 report buries on Page 10 the inconvenient fact that the earth’s warming trend stopped fifteen years ago. They quietly mention that maybe their models are overestimating the problem. No wonder a recent analysis shows 114 of 117 models have over-predicted the global warming phenomenon. 

So when you hear about increase certainty coming from “science” that global warming is a big deal to fear, track the money. It is part of the annual funding drive for several Big Enviro organizations.

P.S.: Ron Binz, Obama's radical Big Enviro nominee for FERC -- who vowed to follow Obama's lead in legislating by regulatory fiat without Congress -- has withdrawn his nomination!! The Senate Energy Comittee was poised to dump him. He saw the handwriting on the wall. See WSJ 10/2/13 Page A12.
