The Assumed Authority
The IPCC Examined
by Jonathan DuHamel
The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and its "2500 scientists" are oft cited as The Authority on climate change science. Yet, this group is a political organization rather than a scientific one. This was signaled by Sir John Houghton, first co-chair of the IPCC and lead editor of the first three Reports, "Unless we announce disasters no one will listen."
