UN Climate Body in Deep Denial

Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC

Seriously, would you trust this man? I wouldn’t buy a used car from him. He’s Rajendra Pachauri, the chairman of the UN’s powerful Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)!

Pachauri is in deep denial, insisting that the integrity of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is not affected in the least by the thousands of hacked e-mails from a major climate research institute, U. of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU), which have exposed AGW research as questionable and unscientific.

At this point, I don’t know what it’ll take for these AGW frauds to back off. The only route is the legal one of lawsuits. A leading AGW skeptic named David Holland is doing just that. He’s seeking prosecutions against some of Britain’s most eminent academics for allegedly holding back information in breach of disclosure laws. Alas, the crazies are meeting in Copenhagen next week, before Holland has even begun suing these frauds.

LEAKED EMAILS WON’T HARM UN CLIMATE BODY, SAYS CHAIRMAN

By James Randerson – Nov 29, 2009 – http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2009/nov/29/ipcc-climate-change-leaked-emails

There is “virtually no possibility” of a few scientists biasing the advice given to governments by the UN’s top global warming body, its chair said today.

Rajendra Pachauri defended the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in the wake of apparent suggestions in emails between climate scientists at the University of East Anglia that they had prevented work they did not agree with from being included in the panel’s fourth assessment report, which was published in 2007.

The emails were made public this month after a hacker illegally obtained them from servers at the university.

Pachauri said the large number of contributors and rigorous peer review mechanism adopted by the IPCC meant that any bias would be rapidly uncovered.

“The processes in the IPCC are so robust, so inclusive, that even if an author or two has a particular bias it is completely unlikely that bias will find its way into the IPCC report,” he said.

“Every single comment that an expert reviewer provides has to be answered either by acceptance of the comment, or if it is not accepted, the reasons have to be clearly specified. So I think it is a very transparent, a very comprehensive process which insures that even if someone wants to leave out a piece of peer reviewed literature there is virtually no possibility of that happening.”

The IPCC, which was set up by the UN in 1988, is the world’s leading authority on climate change. It advises governments on the science behind the problem and was awarded the Nobel peace prize along with Al Gore in 2007.

Pachauri was responding to one email from 2004 in which Professor Phil Jones, the head of the climatic research unit at UEA, said of two papers he regarded as flawed: “I can’t see either … being in the next Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. Kevin [Trenberth] and I will keep them out somehow – even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!”

Pachauri said it was not clear whether the wording of the emails reflected the scientists’ intended actions, but said: “I really think people should be discreet … in this day and age anything you write, even privately, could become public and to put anything down in writing is, to say the least, indiscreet … It is another matter to talk about this to your friends on the telephone or person to person but to put it down in writing was indiscreet. If someone was to say something like this in an IPCC authors’ meeting then there are others who would chew him up.”

Jones has denied any suggestion that he tried to suppress scientific evidence he disagreed with or that he manipulated data.

Some commentators, including the former chancellor Nigel Lawson and the environmental campaigner and Guardian writer George Monbiot, have called on Jones to resign but Pachauri said he did not agree. He said an independent inquiry into the emails would achieve little, but there should be a criminal investigation into how the emails came to light.

Pachauri said he doubted that trust in the IPCC would be damaged by the affair. “People who are aware of how the IPCC functions and are appreciative of the credibility that the IPCC has attained will probably not be swayed by an incident of this kind,” he said.

He pointed out that five days after the emails were made public, Barack Obama announced a major commitment to cutting greenhouse gas emissions ahead of the UN climate summit in Copenhagen.

I just heard on a radio show i get here in Tampa..( the schnitt show) that apparently the last 20 yrs of data have been destroyed………the whole basis of their claim…up in smoke…………no way to check anything. no way for anyone to check the modeling……………..there should be obstruction charges and destruction of evidence charges filed immediately. But they are gonna ram it thru any way………..time to make a non-violent yet let them know we mean biz stand.

I have come up with a plan that is sure to scare the living shit out of the polls. For all those with a CCW permit…do you realize that that is technically a 30 state concealed weapon permit. See link for map of carry states that offer reciprocity: http://www.ccwusa.com/site/

Now overlay that with map of USA:
http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&source=hp&q=map+of+usa&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=United+States&gl=us&ei=AWcUS_XrNs-ztgfNj9jkBA&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=image&resnum=1&ved=0CA0Q8gEwAA…………………zoom in
Now as far as I can tell we can get as far as West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Like Glenn always says we surround them. So how about we get 1-2-5 hundred thousand law abiding citizens to take up residence in those states. We can’t enter Maryland or D.C , but I bet it’ll scare the living crap out of them…….what do you think……………Steve

Steve,

I blogged about CRU’s dumping of its raw data in my post this weekend, “More Climategate Skullduggery”: https://giovanniworld.wordpress.com/2009/11/29/climategate-shuffle/

About your idea, not sure I understand you. Are you asking Americans with concealed weapons permit to move to certain states so that we can “surround” liberals? How would that lead to Climategate changing politicians’ decision-making???

Eowyn, sorry about the confusion.I did not mean move there. I kinda just meant like a 2 day rally of law abiding citizens just using their 2nd amendment rights. I don’t know if it’s possible, just thinking off top of head, but I figure last time we went to D.C. it meant nothing. Maybe this time if we surround D.C. for a day or 2 with our CCW which are honored in the states mentioned the may finally get the quote by
Thomas Jefferson. “From time to time the tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants alike.”
Bet the head wee wee get’s all WEE WEE’D up…….LOL…. 😉

no violence……just scare the crap out of them………me

It advises governments on the science behind the problem and was awarded the Nobel peace prize along with Al Gore in 2007. Yeah, and we all know how special that prize is…as useless as the UN in my opinion…
