This book is a collection of essays published between February 2010 and August 2013 centered around Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the IPCC climate report. After the IPC shared the Nobel Prize, he told everyone who helped write the report that they were a Nobel Prize winner, which of course they were not. When the IPCC got the Nobel, it mean just what it said, the IPCC got the Nobel prize, and not the individual authors and editors. Thus they were many people who for about 5 years were going around claiming that they had won a Nobel Prize. It took the five years to get the IPCC to correct the error. Mr. Rajendra Pachauri as the head of the IPCC would be expected to be non partisan and as neutral as he cold be regarding what is called global warming. However, he has taken sides and signed up as a supporter of green causes.
All in all, this collection of essays and posts expose Mr. Rajendra Pachauri as very much of a partisan in the debates about global warming. This certainly calls into question his objectivity, and thus the objectivity of the IPCC report is for no other reason, that he is an avowed environmentalist who has publicly chosen sides on this issue.
The reader can only wonder how and why this man ever got the top job as IPCC chairman. He is not a scientist let alone a climate scientist.
Perhaps what Donna outlines in this book about Pachauri explains why the IPCC is nothing but an incompetent activist body determined to peddle dangerous man-made global warming propaganda in pursuit of an international agreement on fossil fuel energy use.
If you look at any organisation, you only have to look at who is at the head of the organisation to tell you need what you need to know about that body. By telling us about Pachauri, Donna gives the reader a good idea about what sort of an organisation the IPCC is ... and it's not a pretty picture.
An enjoyable book.
Donna Laframboise has done it again with another expose of this organisation & its leaders.
Statements & reports published by them, (backed up by references & footnotes if any proof is required) about falsely named Nobel Prize winners, & exaggerated Peer Reviews ect..
If anybody has any doubts about Climate Change reports & how they are written & verified, especially regarding Rajendra Pachauri, then this book is a "Must Read".
If you read Donna Laframbroise's blog there is little point in purchasing this book..
