Standing of IPCC Authors Declining In Every Report

Donna Laframboise has a must-read article which details how the standing (research papers published, academic titles, etc) is declining with every IPCC report.

It seems the smarter ones are realising that it’s a sinking ship and are getting off it as soon as they can.

Donna has posted a link to a massive pdf report which contains comments from IPCC insiders on the declining capabilities and qualities of those writing the reports. Here’s a sample of what they’re saying:

…two [lead authors] on our chapter (one from a developing country and one European) never wrote a word or contributed much to discussions– nevertheless they remained credited. I felt this was unfair on those that actually wrote the text. (p. 35)

The article is available here: IPCC Laureates Lack Scientific Credibility

UPDATE: New Post Added at Nofrakkingconsensus

Donna has added a new post at Nofrakkingconsensus which gives further details into how IPCC insiders are fully aware that there is a lot of non-peer reviewed literature being used by the IPCC.

New Article available here

If you haven’t read it yet, you really should do. Nofrakkingconsensus is the sceptical blog that sceptical bloggers read and contains a wealth of original research on the IPCC and related issues.

  1. We’ve long been told that the IPCC is a panel of the world’s top experts and best scientists – and that we should therefore trust its findings.

    I’ve been amazed at how willing prestigious scientific organizations have been to endorse the IPCC’s conclusions despite the fact that not one of them appears to have performed the slightest bit of auditing or fact-checking.

    The amazing thing about these questionnaire answers is how candid people were. You make the smallest space for those involved to discuss their experiences and oh my, the things that are revealed.

  2. Irrelevant People
    Carefully Chosen

    Not with a Bang.
    Or even a whimper!

    I believe that many have done a level of auditing and fact-checking. It’s where they stop doing this that matters.
    The funding checks (UK cheques) keep the curiosity of the majority in check and it’s only a brave minority that dares to point out that the rest of their colleagues are deluded, spineless or just agreeing with what the boss says.
    The catastrophists are odds on to win this war. Truth will prove to have been a brave and honourable opponent but the silence of ” good-men ” have condemned it to crushing defeat.
