I didn’t even have to examine this one for 10 seconds. This is pure scam.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, alongside the now-completely-discredited chair of the IPCC, Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, today announced the launch of an “independent” review of the IPCC’s processes and procedures at a press conference in New York. The review is to be conducted by representatives chosen by the InterAcademy Council, an international consortium representing the national academies of sciences from 15 separate nations. Here is their press release.
The announcement was carried by water-carriers from the Associated Press to the unthinking masses bearing this grotesquely misleading lede (with my emphasis added):
World’s top scientists to review climate panel
UNITED NATIONS (AP) – At a tumultuous time in U.N.-led climate negotiations, one of the world’s most credible scientific groups agreed Wednesday to plug the recent cracks in the authoritative reports of the United Nations’ Nobel Prize-winning global warming panel.
“We enter this process with no preconceived conclusions,” said Robbert Dijkgraaf, a Dutch mathematical physicist who co-chairs the group, the InterAcademy Council of 15 nations’ national academies of science.
Just look at the puffery in that lede. It’s “one of the world’s most credible scientific groups.” They’re reviewing an “authoritative” report, from a “Nobel Prize-winning” panel. They claim they have “no preconceived conclusions.”
There is a well-known, well-established process for correcting errors in scientific research, and This. Is. Not. It. Peer review has served the scientific community for centuries, and will serve here if it is carried out using a fair process with appropriate transparency and without governmental interference.
The AP report is pure propaganda. The IAC is not one of the most credible organizations in the world; it is a politically-oriented entity devoted to international governance. The heads of 15 National Academies of Sciences are 15 political operatives representing 15 governmental liaison bodies. Yes, I imagine they’re all professional scientists of some sort; that does not make these organizations any less political. The men calling for this report are thoroughly discredited already. The United Nations is devoted to internationalization, as is its sister organization, the IAC. They have a dog in the hunt: they both gain immense power from a finding of significant anthropogenic global climate effect. They both should stand a billion miles from the credibility recovery process and let others do the work. We have no reason to expect anything but a sham review that will go through the requisite motions and summarily declare the IPCC report golden.
I am completely disgusted. These frakking criminals are still attempting to co-opt the entire world’s governments by manufacturing “science” in a dishonest manner. They should be in prison for life, and that’s the merciful take. Let’s hope the honest process of peer review continues unmolested, so we can get a clearer take on what effect human activity has on the climate. The UN is not going to provide that, not in a million years.

No matter what the issue, Man Made Climate Change, the economy, Health Care, or whatever; this is a full court press. These people intend to win or die trying. The thing is, I think we are almost in a direct fight with Satan. I believe it’s Satan that’s leading the charge, and he cares not one whit for those who follow him. Unlike our God, Satan has no compunctions about leading his followers over the cliff and into the abyss.
What makes this fight so dangerous is that these people are not acting on what is in their own self interest. Whether they know it or not they are following Satan and Satan intends to take them over the cliff with as many of us as he can trick into going with them.
The bottom line is this; they are not going to bake off, not now, and not from anything.

i am kind of behind the game and i just recently read “state of fear” by michael chrichton, written in 2004 and he died in 2008. in it, he appears to foretell the implosion of the “science” of global warming and even names hadley cru and james hansen by name. because I read the book after the fact, it was really weird. it was like seeing the beginning of a movie after you saw the end.
