A high-level inquiry into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found there was “little evidence” for its claims about global warming.
It also said the panel had emphasised the negative impacts of climate change and made “substantive findings” based on little proof.
The review by the InterAcademy Council (IAC) was launched after the IPCC’s hugely embarrassing 2007 benchmark climate change report, which contained exaggerated and false claims that Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035.
The panel was forced to admit its key claim in support of global warming was lifted from a 1999 magazine article. The report was based on an interview with a little-known Indian scientist who has since said his views were “speculation” and not backed by research.
In essence what they are saying here is that the IPCC made up stuff out of whole cloth and passed it off as critical science that required policy changes amounting into the trillions of dollars and beggaring entire nations.
It is hard to conceive of a more egregious scientific fraud in the entire history of the world. That’s no exaggeration. The scope of the impact of this chicanery is incalculable, and could well have led to economic ruin for the entire world.
