Nobel Laureate Summer Reading – Part 3
There’s nothing wrong with writing a sex-saturated novel. But IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri says this book is “all about spirituality.”
Nobel Laureate Summer Reading – Part 2
Between the ages of four and six, our hero is judged to be the smartest, gets “revenge against the whole world,” and is preferred by the girls.
Nobel Laureate Summer Reading – Part 1
Tidbit #1 from Rajendra Pachauri’s 2010 novel. HSBC, the huge multinational bank, has linked its brand to this strange, stilted prose.
Mark Jaccard Re-Writes History
A Simon Fraser University economist declared, on his blog in May, “I have never spoken or written of myself as a Nobel laureate.” After I unearthed written testimony to the contrary, he quietly rewrote the post, removing that denial.

What lessons will the rest of the world learn from Germany’s renewable energy disaster?
The IPCC: Politicizing Science Since 1988
If the IPCC was a scientific body, the science section of its upcoming report would be summarized by scientists and that would be the end of the matter. Instead, the science summary will be the battleground at a 4-day political gathering.
Putting the ‘Activist’ in Scientist
29 people have submitted a statement regarding the Keystone Pipeline. Purely political opinions are being camouflaged as ‘scientific judgment.’
Two Quotes from Mark Jaccard: 2013 vs 2011
An economist who insists he’s never described himself as a Nobel laureate did, indeed, do so. In written testimony.
Speakers’ Bureau Still Says Jaccard is a Nobel Laureate
Press releases, event posters, news stories & speakers’ bureaus have all falsely described economist Mark Jaccard as a Nobel winner. He says it isn’t his fault.

How Climate Scientists Think
Nobel-winning work about self-delusion and flawed judgment applies to all of us – even climatologists.
A Few Crumbs of Pastry: More Nobel Nonsense
What happens when you slice half a pie into 9,000 pieces? You get a few crumbs of pastry.
Mark Jaccard, Counterfeit Nobel Laureate
Canadian economist Mark Jaccard is falsely described as a Nobel laureate in the headline of a press release – and then on the front page of a newspaper.
Rajendra Pachauri’s Conspiracy Theory
It takes chutzpah to accuse other people of something you yourself are peddling.
For the Sake of the Children
Climate crusaders urge us to Think of the children! But that can be used by anyone to advance any argument under the sun.
Australia Misleads the World About the IPCC
IPCC personnel are not the world’s “leading climate scientists.” They were chosen partly due to gender, age, and geographic considerations.
IPCC Invites In the Activists
When Greenpeace personnel are participating, a political process is underway – not a scientific one.
The Rajendra Pachauri Puzzle
The IPCC chairman’s response to The Great Global Warming Swindle sheds light on his pathetic leadership.

According to a new UN report, your meat consumption is killing the planet.
The Workshop Presentation that Never Was
The BBC African temperature exaggeration is worse that we thought. It also has an IPCC connection.
Why Taking WWF Money Matters
If the IPCC had done the sensible thing and banned activist publications, would the institute run by its chairman still be receiving activist cash?
Pachauri Takes WWF Money
Last week, a sustainability summit organized by the chairman of the IPCC was held in India. The World Wildlife Fund provided funding.
Is Climate Change Like Gravity?
If climate change is as straightforward a scientific concept as gravity, why does the IPCC continue to produce multi-thousand-page reports?

Authors of ‘Extreme Misrepresentation’
A majority of the 13 senior scientists responsible for a US government report are also associated with activist groups. (Eight of them have an IPCC connection.)
Rajendra Pachauri, Pessimist-in-Chief
The head of the IPCC thinks “a large part of the human species” is endangered by climate change. Apparently that makes him an optimist.
The Secret Santa Leak: Translations & IPCC Reaction
The IPCC’s response to the leak of three data sticks is typical of that organization. It expects us to accept its version of reality at face value. Its statement provides no opportunity for the public to draw its own conclusions.
Searchable Secret Santa
Simon Barnett has created a wonderful analysis tool for the new IPCC data.
Cogs in the Climate Machine
The scientists who write IPCC reports have so little authority that changing the word “systems” to “ecosystems” involves multiple layers of bureaucracy.
Are a Third of IPCC Review Editors MIA?
IPCC review editors were supposed to file a report last September. A third of them apparently didn’t bother.
IPCC Legal Notice
The Legal and Liaison Officer of the IPCC has sent me a boilerplate notice, requesting the removal of Secret Santa documents from my website.
The Secret Santa Leak
Thanks to a whistleblower, draft versions of most chapters of the IPCC’s upcoming report are now in the public domain. Among the new revelations: the IPCC has learned nothing from the Himalayan glacier debacle.
This Is Called Cheating (Part 2)
Months before authors were even selected to write an upcoming IPCC report, its chairman was telling a live audience what conclusion that report would reach.
Who is Hans Joachim Schellnhuber?
The German government’s chief climate advisor is the furthest thing from an objective, dispassionate scientist. He thinks using fossil fuels amounts to “a lifestyle of mass destruction” – and that the UN should be put in charge of trillions of dollars.
This Is Called Cheating (Part 1)
IPCC officials are telling Working Group 2 authors about scientific papers that haven’t been written yet. These papers will appear in a special edition of a journal guest-edited by an activist scientist.
IPCC Declares Its Intent to Circumvent Expert Reviewers
Hundreds of souls have volunteered to serve as IPCC expert reviewers. But the review process lacks integrity – and the system is being gamed.
The IPCC Leak: This is What Transparency Looks Like
The IPCC describes itself as a completely transparent organization. If that is the case, the draft chapters of its upcoming report that were leaked on the Internet yesterday should be a non-issue.
Tuvalu’s Gruesome Animal Friends
Does the IPCC think Tuvalu will be the first island nation to disappear due to climate change – or has a gruesome art exhibit manufactured that claim?
UN Bureaucrats Wield Science for Undemocratic Purposes
UN officials say we should listen to science. Don’t be fooled. It’s a rhetorical ploy, a cover for their own agenda.
2 IPCC Announcements
In an official statement, the IPCC says it’s improper for any of its personnel to describe themselves as Nobel laureates. But the statement is all but invisible on the IPCC’s website.
I’ll be participating in the WattsUpWithThat answer to Al Gore’s 24-hour web project this week. Additionally, I’ll be talking to a university class tomorrow and addressing a climate skeptics’ conference in Munich on December 1st.
IPCC Author Becomes Green Party Apparatchik
A lead author of the IPCC’s ‘hard science’ section is a Green Party candidate and deputy leader.
Deja Vu All Over again…1991’s ‘World on Fire’
Before there was Al Gore, there was George Mitchell. Politicians have been casting themselves as environmental crusaders, saving the planet, for two decades.
How Science (Really) Works
A new report argues that alternative perspectives are vital to the scientific process. Expecting dispassion from individual researchers is probably a lost cause.
IPCC Admits it Isn’t a ‘Gold Standard’ Body
Forget every media claim you’ve ever read about the IPCC being a “gold standard” organization. It now admits it’s just an ordinary UN organization following ordinary UN rules.
IPCC Embraces Geographic Quotas
The IPCC has abandoned science in favour of affirmative action.
More on IPCC Chapter Head Neil Adger – & Stephen Schneider
Ideas being promoted by ‘climate scientists’ look increasingly scary.
The IPCC: Going Where No Scientist Should Go
The next IPCC report will include a chapter that discusses gender inequality, marginalized populations, and traditional knowledge. So much for providing “rigorous…scientific information.”
The Activist Economist & the IPCC (Part 2)
The author of a 2007 book on climate change failed to mention his own IPCC involvement while pointing to that body as an authority. This is called an undisclosed conflict-of-interest.
The Activist Economist & the IPCC (Part 1)
How can claims that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is objective be taken seriously when one of its authors has been arrested at an anti-coal protest?
Australian Speaking Tour
UPDATE: Perth info now available. I’ll be speaking in four Australian cities between July 6th and 15th.

Fairy Tales on the Road to Rio
Nine papers are being distributed by an upcoming save-the-world conference. They’re explicitly intended to influence the behaviour of world leaders at the Rio summit in June. But the claim that they represent the latest scientific thinking is a gross distortion.
UN Climate Chief’s ‘Green Crusader’ Award
The head of what is supposed to be a neutral scientific body saw no impropriety recently in accepting an award that applauds his environmental activism.
Explosive Pachauri Profile in Australian Magazine
Five years before Rajendra Pachauri became chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a judge ruled that he had “sworn to false affidavits” – and that a non-profit organization was “not safe” in his hands.
Closed Minds at the IPCC
A Dutch professor has examined a draft of the upcoming IPCC report. He says it has been written by people who assume things that haven’t yet been proven, are selective about what material they consider, and reach decisions by a show of hands.
Scientific Consensus, Leadership & Stephen Schneider
Is it any wonder that young climate scientists behave badly? Their elders set the example – by hurling insults at dissenters.
Bob Carter: A Geological Perspective
A climate debate that includes Al Gore’s climate ideas – but not Bob Carter’s – is no debate at all.
Pachauri Pushes Emissions Reduction – Again
The IPCC is supposed to be “policy-neutral, never policy-prescriptive.” How can it be OK for its chairman to lobby for one policy in particular?
What Pachauri Means by ‘Sustainable’
For the head of the IPCC, sustainable is just another word for a global anti-poverty campaign. Which means that organizations such as his own TERI institute, in poor countries such as India, receive lots of funding.
IPCC Scientists – Guests of the Environmental Defense Fund
A powerful lobby group supplied their meeting space, helped with their travel documents & subsidized their meals. Top IPCC scientists went along for the ride.
The Canadian (Climate) Paradox
How many more reports highlighting the IPCC’s flaws will it take before politicians draw the obvious conclusions? How many additional scandals must surface before political leaders realize that this body doesn’t deserve their trust?
What Financial Meltdowns Teach Us About the IPCC
When I describe the surreal world of climate science to people who are strangers to that world I know it sounds fantastical. But there are strong parallels with the recently destroyed economies of Iceland, Greece, and Ireland.
Links to two recent interviews with yours truly. One was conducted via e-mail and the other is a 40-minute audio interview.
Rajendra Pachauri: Ever the Activist
According to the head of what is supposed to be a neutral scientific body, young people need to be mobilized to become major agents of change. Does it really need to be said that science is no longer science if those with activist agendas are in charge?
Which Other Minorities Should Be Blasted into Space?
How funny would it have been had IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri said that gays should be given a one-way ticket to outer space?
‘Delinquent Teen’ Press Clippings
Reviews of my book continue to appear in Switzerland, South Africa, the UK, and the US.
When Your Paycheque Depends on a Climate Crisis
There is now a small army of experts, activists, and bureaucrats whose economic lives depend on there being a climate crisis. Without such a crisis their jobs, their travel to exotic places, and their moments in the media spotlight would all disappear.
Pachauri’s Green Torch Bearers
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is supposed to be a neutral and impartial body. But its chairman is encouraging business students to be green activists.

Newly released e-mails shed light on internal IPCC politics.
Pachauri’s Rhetoric vs Reality
The chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has systematically misled us regarding the quality and kind of material his organization consults.
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.”
Rajendra Pachauri – The Little Man Who Told Big Whoppers
Many IPCC authors were chosen for reasons other than impressive scholarly track records.
News & Reviews
At the end of 2011 Treehugger.com continues to portray IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri as a saint.
The IPCC’s Fake Review Editor
A person who “played no role whatsoever” in an IPCC chapter nevertheless signed a statement that claimed otherwise.
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.

I’m Interviewed About Peter Gleick & Other Matters
I’ve not commented on Peter Gleick’s one-star review of my book on Amazon.com prior to this interview.
WWF Issues Press Release About My Book
The World Wildlife Fund says the charge that scientists linked to its organization have infiltrated the IPCC is ‘ludicrous.’ I suppose it’s a total coincidence that more than 2/3rds of the IPCC report’s chapters included at least one WWF-affiliated individual.
Please Review My Book on Amazon
Please consider leaving a review of my book on the Amazon store websites. These reviews really do matter.
A Book is Born
Digital editions of my book can now be purchased from Amazon.com, as well as Amazon outlets in the UK, Germany, and France. An instantly-downloadable PDF edition is also available.
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.
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
The erroneous Himalayan glacier prediction was based on a WWF report. The IPCC chapter in which that mistake occurred was led by two WWF-affiliated scientists.
Here an Activist, There an Activist
In a single IPCC chapter we find an author affiliated the WWF, another with Greenpeace, and a third with the Environmental Defense Fund. Sure, this is a scientific document.
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.
Of Footnotes & Factchecking (book update)
My book-length exposé of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will be available soon.
The IAC Report One Year Later
A year after a damning assessment was released, the IPCC continues to thumb its nose at key recommendations.
Comic Book Analysis from the Leader of the IPCC
According to the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, history is about environmental villains and bizarre motives.
Pachauri’s Squishy Timeline
In 2007 the head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said the world was at a defining moment, that the next 2 to 3 years would determine our future. Without a new emissions treaty by 2012, he said, it would be too late.
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
17 years ago a Greenpeace report titled The Climate Time Bomb tried to frighten us with lurid images and dire predictions that have since failed.
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.
How the IPCC Defines ‘Distinguished Scientist’
Where, on the CV of a person employed by Greenpeace for the past 17 years, does it say distinguished scientist?
Prof Condemned for Not Teaching IPCC Reports
Skeptical climate scientist Chris de Freitas has been savaged by a journalist who complains that 3,000-page IPCC reports aren’t on his Geography 101 reading list.
Calling Skeptics Stupid Doesn’t Convince Anyone
How does calling me stupid and equating me with a Holocaust denier advance the debate? Is the fate of the planet really at stake – or are we just playacting in a sandbox?
Greenpeace Disses ‘Covert Calculations’
Greenpeace has seen the light. Years after it became the norm in climate science to hoard & hide data, Greenpeace is now complaining about such behaviour.
About My Book
My book has a new title – and will be available in September.
Looking for Examples of the Hockey Stick Graph
Can you point me to science textbooks, government documents, or websites of reputable organizations where the Michael Mann hockey stick graph appears?
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
There’s a link between hurricane expert Chris Landsea, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. That link is James J. McCarthy.
The Activists, the Media, and the Public
When activists hoodwink the media – and questionable environmental scare stories are the result – why don’t we care?
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.”
The chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says responding to climate change is part of a larger goal: transforming the world economy.
Oodles of Cash
Who knew that green groups – and those with business interests in renewable energy – have access to such obscene amounts of money?
IPCC: These People Haven’t Learned a Thing
A recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report once again relies on research conducted by Greenpeace. Once again, Greenpeace personnel are serving as IPCC lead authors.
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.
Climate Change & Violent Fantasies
When did it become acceptable to pen violent fantasies about people with whom you disagree? When did it become OK to talk – luridly and out loud – about their death?
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.
That Wobbly Foundation: Peer-Reviewed Research
Climate activists have long argued that scientific research that has been peer-reviewed is reliable, trustworthy & true.
Lord Turnbull Trashes the IPCC
A prominent UK civil servant has issued a plea for climate sanity that is less-than-kind to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
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.
Fixed: the IPCC’s Climate Model Evaluation Game
Each IPCC report includes a chapter that evaluates climate models. Is this written by disinterested parties who take a cold, hard look at the strengths & weaknesses of these analytical tools? Nope. It’s authored by people whose livelihoods depend on climate models.
The Case of Michael Oppenheimer
Perhaps the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change doesn’t regard activist scientists as damaged goods because neither the National Academy of Sciences nor the American Association for the Advancement of Science does, either.
WWF’s Chief Spokesperson Joins IPCC
Jennifer Morgan was recently recruited to help prepare the upcoming edition of the climate bible. Rather than being one of the world’s finest scientific minds she is a professional activist – as in chief climate change spokesperson for the World Wildlife Fund.
Ka-Ching! More Greenpeace Money
One of the most senior authors for the upcoming climate bible has spent the past 17 years cashing cheques from Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund.
Clueless New IPCC Policy Ignores Advocacy Literature
New Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change guidelines declare that blogs “are not acceptable sources of information for IPCC Reports.” Yet these same guidelines say nothing about advocacy literature published by groups such as Greenpeace.
Speeding Tickets and the IPCC
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has taken the time to write down some rules of the road. But it has never hired any traffic cops.
Citizen Audit Anniversary
A year ago a group of volunteers from 12 countries struck a blow for truth-in-advertising. Our audit revealed that 1 in 3 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report references are to non-peer-reviewed literature. For years we’ve been told the climate bible relies exclusively on peer-reviewed research.
The Missing Map
In 2008, the United Nations Environment Programme published a map suggesting there’d be 50 million climate refugees by 2010. When a writer called attention to this failed prediction recently, the map disappeared.
The State of the IPCC’s Leadership
Rajendra Pachauri, as chairman of what is supposed to be a respectable science body, has – with deliberation and forethought – publicly linked that body to left-wing political analysis and activism.
Pachauri’s Pal – the Worldwatch Institute
Before the IPCC was even founded, the Worldwatch Institute had already declared that global warming was caused by fossil fuels. Surely that makes the IPCC chairman’s decision to fraternize with this activist organization a bit awkward.
The IPCC’s Activist Chairman
Rajendra Pachauri does not display the aloof, dispassionate demeanour traditionally evoked by the term “scientist.” Instead, he repeatedly lends the good name of the scientific body he chairs to activist endeavours.
The IPCC’s Pretend Neutrality
Actions speak louder the words. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change claims to be impartial and evenhanded – but that’s not how it behaves.
The IPCC Insiders Club
A small group of IPCC insiders filled as many as seven different roles each during the writing of the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.
Our Man at the IPCC
A Q&A with Francis Zwiers, Canada’s most senior IPCC official, regarding his recent testimony in Washington, DC.
The Missing Questionnaires
We’ve been told more than 400 people answered a questionnaire about the IPCC last year. So far, only 232 records have been made public. No one will explain why.
The IPCC Mythology (direct quotes)
I’ve compiled a database of more than 160 quotes about the IPCC. Here are examples of journalists, government officials, and activists repeating the highly-questionable IPCC marketing message.
The Strange Case of Sari Kovats
How does someone who hasn’t yet earned their doctorate get nominated by their own government for IPCC duty multiple times? How does the IPCC, which claims to be comprised of the world’s top scientists, repeatedly select this person to fill senior roles?
Peer into the Heart of the IPCC, Find Greenpeace
The mere presence of environmental activists undermines the integrity of scientific endeavours. Yet the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has long embraced Greenpeace personnel.
