Pachauri’s Green Torch Bearers

Pachauri Interviewed by Pretend Journalist

The UK’s Guardian newspaper has published a fawning article about IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri. But the article is pure propaganda. It was written by the Natural Resources Defense Council – a green lobby group that fancies itself “the Earth’s best defense.”

How to Spot a Delinquent Teenager

Delinquent teenagers never take responsibility for their own actions. After they’ve set fire to the the neighbour’s sofa they insist the real issue is that the cops got the time slightly wrong.

When the IPCC Makes an Error, Is it the Journalist’s Fault?

I trusted the IPCC’s website when it listed the lead authors of one of its chapters. If that list is wrong am I the party who hasn’t been careful?

WWF-Affiliated Personnel in Working Group 1

Most chapters in Working Group 1 of the 2007 Climate Bible contained at least one scientist who is affiliated with professional climate lobbyists. In one instance, four of the lead authors were tainted in this manner.

WWF Issues Press Release About My Book

The World Wildlife Fund says the charge that scientists affiliated with its organization have infiltrated the IPCC is “ludicrous.” Surely it can do better than that.

WWF Influence at the Highest Levels of the IPCC

40 people belonged to the IPCC’s 2007 ‘core writing team.’ 11 of them have documented links to either the World Wildlife Fund or Greenpeace.

78 Names

The scientists on this list either played some role in the 2007 Climate Bible or are helping to write the next one expected to be completed in 2013. In many cases, they’re doing dual duty.

All of them have a documented, public relationship with professional lobbyists.

Glaciergate’s Other WWF Connection

How the WWF Infiltrated the IPCC – Part 2

How the WWF Infiltrated the IPCC – Part 1

Between 2004 and 2008 the World Wildlife Fund recruited 130 “leading climate scientists mostly, but not exclusively, from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change” to help it heighten the public’s sense of urgency.

The Journal of Climate & the IPCC

We’re supposed to trust the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s conclusions because it relies on peer-reviewed scientific literature. But many of the people who run scientific journals also write IPCC reports. This is a circular, incestuous process.

Greenpeace’s Fear Machine

Canadian Scientists and the World Wildlife Fund

When hundreds of Canadian scientists – and 12 science bodies – joined a World Wildlife Fund ad campaign they undermined their own authority. They became politically-motivated actors in a political discussion.

Prof Condemned for Not Teaching IPCC Reports

Calling Skeptics Stupid Doesn’t Convince Anyone

IPCC Bigwigs Spout Political, Childish Nonsense

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is supposed to stick to the science. But not only do its leaders make political pronouncements – these pronouncements are startlingly unsophisticated.

Chris Landsea and the Moral Midgets

The scientific community expects us to trust its judgment on the question of whether global warming is the fault of human beings. But its response to the Chris Landsea affair demonstrates that that judgment is impaired.

Landsea, the IPCC & the Union of Concerned Scientists

My Fave Chairman Pachauri Quote

The credibility of the IPCC has long been in tatters. There have been multiple calls for the resignation of its chairman. Rather than addressing this state of affairs, the head of the IPCC thinks corporate entities should change their ways – because we live in a world in which “reputation and public opinion are extremely important.”

Pachauri’s Cause

IPCC: These People Haven’t Learned a Thing

Science is Not a Tyrant

Activists, politicians, and journalists love to play the ‘science says’ game when talking about global warming. But scientific facts are one thing. How best to respond to those facts is a completely different discussion – in which we all deserve a voice.

How Much Harm to Humans is OK?

An IPCC official thinks that quadrupling gasoline prices could help save the planet. What effect such a policy would have on human beings appears to be irrelevant.

The IPCC as UN Funding Mechanism

You gotta love the UN. The 31-member IPCC bureau includes representatives from undemocratic and unsavoury countries such as Sudan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Malaysia, Madagascar and the Maldives. Soon, these countries may be deciding the fate of billions of UN-administered climate change funds.

Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Critiqued

An opinion piece in Scientific America alleges that, over the long term, a great deal of scientific research turns out not to be true. Independent replication of research findings is apparently far less common than we think.

IPCC: Screw the Rules

Last year a committee investigating the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change told it to pull up its socks and follow its own rules. This week, the IPCC decided to jettison an important rule instead.

The IPCC, the UK, and Climate Censorship

When British delegates attempt to censor speakers at a Russian Academy of Science climate change event that’s a clue that science has left the building.

Blindspots at the IPCC

A new 1,000-page Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report appears to ignore both nuclear power and shale gas – even though both these energy sources emit far less CO2 than does coal. This suggests the IPCC’s top priority isn’t emissions reduction after all.

The IPCC on Renewable Energy

The IPCC has released a 26-page summary of a new report 3 weeks ahead of the 1,000-page full document. This is an example of how the IPCC manipulates media coverage. Journalists can’t compare the summary to the real thing.

The Climate Caper

Written by a senior Australian scientist, The Climate Caper explores some of the reasons why official IPCC science has become so pervasive. For one thing, it’s affiliated with huge government agencies employing large numbers of civil servant scientists.

Slivers of the Nobel Pie

When a cycling group told its members they were going to hear from a Nobel laureate, it didn’t explain that climate modeler Philip Duffy’s contribution to a decade-old IPCC report was limited – and tainted by conflict-of-interest.
