The Devil is truly "The Imperfection of the Human Mind".
The UN is, of course, an utterly corrupt organization and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is a child of the UN, so the analysis of this book reinforces what would be suspected. The IPCC has in it's founding charter a statement that it will "assess the risk of human-induced climate change, it's potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation" , so it does not even claim to be assessing the underlying assumptions of the validity of man made, deleterious global warming.
The book appears even handed, specific, documented and even a bit understated in it's conclusion. Basically, the IPCC uses scraps of dubious information, and figments coupled with inflated and misrepresented credentials to cabal together reports to bolster their charter mission. Utter propaganda swallowed whole by herd mentality group think.
- People with strong ties to environmental activist organizations leading and writing chapters for the assessments.
- Lead authors using literature they themselves co-authored, and rejecting all relevant scientific literature and opinions of real experts.
- Adding material into the report after the expert review process is over, including literature published after its over.
- No conflict-of-interest policy until until May 2011, and even then, that policy was not enforced with the authors writing the new report, because it was introduced after the authors were selected.
And much, much more.
Certainly my illusions around this organization are gone. A very informative read. It is truly scary to think about how much influence this organization and these assessments have had on governments and politicians around the world.
