Leaked emails won't harm UN climate body, says chairman

Rajendra Pachauri says there is 'virtually no possibility' of a few scientists biasing IPCC's advice, after UAE hacking breach.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Just because we predicted warm, and we are getting record cold is no reason to suspect us!!!!!!!!"

(Ahem)

It is NOT a "few scientists" biasing the IPCC. It is the other way around.

IPCC is not a scientific organization. It is a political one. It was formed by the UN in the late 1980s to allow the burgeoning global bureaucracy to deal with the emerging global problem. BUt the bureaucrats were in charge from day one.

Both the 1990 and 1995 assessments by the IPCC scientists stated that it would be almost impossible to determine exactly what role human contributions contributed to climate, although most agreed that in theory there had to be one.

But in 1995, after the scientists were done, the IPCC bureaucrats changed the assessment wording. They removed the comments that stated that the scientists still could not detect the human contribution to climate and replaced it with a claim that thew human contribution was now discernible and a cause for IPCC action. In short, while the IPCC scientists were saying they could not find evidence that humans were changing the climate in 1995, the IPPC officially said exactly the opposite!

There followed an intense period of funding for scientists willing to study human caused global warming, which meant the money flowed to those scientists willing to accept that major premise as fact. As the leaked emails from CRU document, scientists with opposing views were defunded and blocked from publication. That is not science at work; that is politics.

Climategate is a political scandal, not a scientific one.
