Climate scientist rebukes IPCC

Quote:It looks as if the cone of silence with-in the Climate Scientist community is breaking down. On February 2, Climate scientist William Sprigg delivered a rebuke to his fellow climate scientists in am address to the Energy & Environment Conference & Expo (EUEC).

Among the you can see in the video below Sprigg says the concerns about climate research arising from the Climategate scandal are justified, that there is a a growing perception that "the IPCC is biased, conflicted, [and] pushing political agendas," and the UN's IPCC needs to be reformed. Read the press release below from the Heartland Institute and the video below:

Quote:A LEADING British government scientist has warned the United Nations’ climate panel to tackle its blunders or lose all credibility.

Robert Watson, chief scientist at Defra, the environment ministry, who chaired the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) from 1997 to 2002, was speaking after more potential inaccuracies emerged in the IPCC’s 2007 benchmark report on global warming.

The most important is a claim that global warming could cut rain-fed north African crop production by up to 50% by 2020, a remarkably short time for such a dramatic change. The claim has been quoted in speeches by Rajendra Pachauri, the IPCC chairman, and by Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general.

This weekend Professor Chris Field, the new lead author of the IPCC’s climate impacts team, told The Sunday Times that he could find nothing in the report to support the claim. The revelation follows the IPCC’s retraction of a claim that the Himalayan glaciers might all melt by 2035, dubbed 'Glaciergate' by commentators.
It is interesting that Robert Watson is speaking out,since he was a rotten chairman of the IPCC back in the late 1990's.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

Well, seems like the current chairman of the IPCC makes lots of money by closing down British jobs.

Quote:Would you credit it?

I'm told the real reason why Tata, the owners of Corus, are closing the plant is because it will be beneficial financially.
I don't believe it has much to do with lack of orders or steel price. Tata will benefit to the tune of £600 million over three years from the carbon credit scheme being pushed by the International Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The head of the IPCC is Rajendra Pachauri, the same Mr pachauri who heads the Tata Energy Research Institute.

Environmentalism is based on lies and the lies reflect an agenda that regards humanity as the enemy of the Earth. - Alan Caruba
