Unseasonable cold greeted delegates to the UN conference on climate change in Durban, South Africa Nov. 28. They were chilled more by the impending collapse of the biggest, most brazen scam in the history of the world.
The warnings of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that the world faced imminent doom from anthropogenic (man-made) global warming were based on peer-reviewed scientific literature, the IPCC chairman claimed. But when Canadian journalist Donna Laframboise checked the 18,531 references in the 2007 report, she found 5,587 were newspaper and magazine articles written by non-experts, unpublished doctoral theses, and pamphlets produced by environmental groups.
IPCC reports were written by leading scientists, the UN claimed. Ms. Lafromboise found many of the authors were graduate students selected more for political connections and “diversity” than for expertise. This explains, in part, why these reports contain so many factual errors.
Fraud is a better explanation. Dr. Nils-Axel Morner asked a British member of the IPCC why the IPCC altered data to indicate sea levels were rising when they were not....
....The scam is threatened most by the global financial crisis. Cash strapped European governments are cancelling costly subsidies for solar and wind.
So attendance is down in Durban, and faces are long. A chill wind is blowing. It will power no windmills.
