Steve McIntyre has revealed how an IPCC report on renewable energy had been written and reviewed by a Greenpeace activist. The report claimed that “80 percent of the world‘s energy supply could be met by renewables by mid-century”. For one, this was the most optimistic of 164 scenarios and it assumed decreased energy demand. The lead author of the chapter in question is Sven Teske who is a campainer for Greenpeace. A more damning conflict of interest could not be considered. Once again, the world iss indebted to Steve McIntyre for his tireless and unpaid work in keeping the alarmists and the IPCC honest. And the IPCC gets a Nobel Peace Prize? It ain’t right.
These revalations by McIntyre just add to a growing rap sheet for the IPCC. There is Africagate where we were told that Africa could have it’s agriculture industry cut in half in ten years. Glaciergate, the inflated suggestion that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035. This particular issue implicated the head of the IPCC, Rajendra Pachauri. We have good old climategate, which revealed the corruption and deceit at hand by certain alarmists. And of course there is the deletion from the conclusion of the 1995 report; “None of the studies cited above has shown clear evidence that we can attribute the observed [climate] changes to the specific cause of increases in greenhouse gases…No study to date has positively attributed all or part [of the climate change observed to date] to anthropogenic [man-made] causes…Any claims of positive detection of significant climate change are likely to remain controversial until uncertainties in the total natural variability of the climate system are reduced.”
This organisation has decended into a joke and governments around the world need to stop basing policies on their preachings.
