More Climategate Faux Pas

by Jason Stotts

It seems the IPCC science is looking shoddier and shoddier. ¬†Apparently the claims about the loss of 40% of the Amazon rain forest is from a green activist’s paper dealing with forest fires (i.e. unrelated to global warming) and the paper was written to try to influence policy.

In the Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), issued in 2007 by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), scientists wrote that 40 percent of the Amazon rainforest in South America was endangered by global warming.

But that assertion was discredited this week when it emerged that the findings were based on numbers from a study by the World Wildlife Federation that had nothing to do with the issue of global warming — and that was written by a freelance journalist and green activist. (Fox News)

So it looks like every claim of the IPCC that is being investigated heavily is turning out to be false. ¬†I think it’s about time all of their less than exemplary science is called into question and the green movement shown to be the sham it is.
