03, November 2011

A Canadian investigative journalist, Donna Laframboise has published a book exposing multiple flaws and systemic errors in the last Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC].

Ms. Laframboise spent two years researching the content and references of the report and was astonished to find 431 references to non peer-reviewed material in the all important Working Group 1 chapters of the 2007 report.

The book, The Delinquent Teenager demolishes the oft-repeated claim that the IPCC only uses peer-reviewed literature on which to base its conclusions.

Some of the other startling facts to emerge from Ms. Laframboise’s research are:
• Numerous graduate students serving as lead authors to the report
• Key contributor Dr Phil Jones of East Anglia CRU fame admitting that peer-reviewers never contacted him to examine raw data for papers he submitted for publication
• Sources used to support IPCC assertions were newspaper and magazine articles, unpublished Masters and Doctoral theses, Greenpeace and WWF documents and press releases
• Five out of 10 personnel contributing to one chapter have a formal, documented link to the WWF – an organisation with a climate alarmist agenda
• 28 out of 44 chapters of the report included at least one individual affiliated with the WWF
Professor Bob Carter, science advisor to the Australian Environment Foundation said today “Ms Laframboise has done what no Academy of Science in the world has been prepared to do and that is to examine the material on which the IPCC has based its conclusions.

“She has diligently exposed the misinformation, omissions and flaws in this report that governments around the world are relying on to determine policy responses to climate change.

“The IPCC reports are so compromised the only way the Australian government can dispel public doubt is to initiate a royal commission into the scientific foundation on which its decision making rests”.
