Book Description

"Blooming brilliant. Devastating" - Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist

"...shines a hard light on the rotten heart of the IPCC" - Richard Tol, Professor of the Economics of Climate Change and convening lead author of the IPCC

" need to read this book. Its implications are far-reaching and the need to begin acting on them is urgent." - Ross McKitrick, Professor of Economics, University of Guelph


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) performs one of the most important jobs in the world. It surveys climate science research and writes a report about what it all means. This report is informally known as the Climate Bible.

Cited by governments around the world, the Climate Bible is the reason carbon taxes are being introduced, heating bills are rising, and costly new regulations are being enacted. It is why everyone thinks carbon dioxide emissions are dangerous. Put simply: the entire planet is in a tizzy because of a United Nations report.

What most of us don't know is that, rather than being written by a meticulous, upstanding professional in business attire, the Climate Bible is produced by a slapdash, slovenly teenager who has trouble distinguishing right from wrong.

This expose, by an investigative journalist, is the product of two years of research. Its conclusion: almost nothing we've been told about the IPCC is true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking Revelations! Read this! 15 Oct. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We were told that the IPCC was the embodiment of true climate science. However Donna Laframboise has found out it is a monolith of corruption. Not only has the science been seriously compromised, but the influence of advocacy groups like Greenpeace in my view, border on sinister. The book is well written and although easy to read, has significant detail resulting from a lot of good research. It is comprised of short sections which make it great for busy people with only a limited time to read.

Whether you believe in Anthropogenic Global Warming or not, the validity of the science is extremely important to the current policies being pursued by many governments. These policies will affect all of us in a very profound way, therefore the corruption of the IPCC should be of interest to everyone. My advice is to read this book and make your own mind up, before these policies seriously affect your lives. Let's make sure we do not follow the Australian example and fatally destroy our economy without checking the facts properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book should be read by every UK voter 17 Oct. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is one of the most important books by a journalist in our own or any other age. But it should never have needed to be written. As Donna Laframboise makes clear, the failure of the big names of world media to subject the United Nations IPCC, widely touted as the intellectual foundation of the global warming scare and vastly expensive emission reduction policies enacted in its wake, to any kind of critical investigation is a major scandal. In their stead, a lone Canadian feminist, who once wrote a weekly opinion column for the Toronto Star, has, with the help of volunteer researchers recruited from across the globe via the Internet, achieved a tour de force.

I fully agree with David Holland that every MP should read this book. But so should every UK voter. Ms Laframboise writes with admirable clarity, humour and, where appropriate, passion - about the grave injustices and threats to our democratic freedoms she has uncovered. Something of world importance that many of us have found fiendishly complicated to explain to our friends and colleagues has been rendered not only intelligible but highly readable. If enough of our fellow-citizens take in the findings of this book then it's certain our elected representatives will do so, leading to the most radical re-think of climate policy imaginable.

I cannot thank the author enough, for applying not just her writing skills but the wisdom and compassion accumulated over many years to this complex, multi-faceted challenge. It will surely be judged the project for which she was born.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Taken to Task 19 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
It's an all too familiar story - something that when viewed from a distance appears perfectly fine but on closer inspection turns out to be a mess. The flawless makeup concealing a face covered in blemishes, the smooth paint job disguising a lethally decrepit car, the beautiful mansion later found to be riddled with dry rot, the brilliant and charismatic politician with - alas - feet of clay.

This can equally apply to institutions. Take the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Ever since it was established in 1988, the IPCC has been held up as an exemplary organisation, representing a "gold standard" for the synthesis of climate science. Operating with utter transparency and relying only on solid, peer-reviewed material, an army of 2,500 expert reviewers and over a thousand contributing and lead authors from all over the globe have been working tirelessly to build a superlative up-to-date and reliable picture of the science of climate change, which in turn can be used, with absolute confidence, to inform and underpin the policies of governments the world over.

Except - it turns out that this is not exactly the case. Enter Donna Laframboise, Canadian writer and blogger, who, aided by a team of citizen auditors, has painstakingly examined the workings of the IPCC, placed them under the microscope, so to speak, and reports her findings in this very timely book. And what she has uncovered is a picture radically different to the one the IPCC would like the world to see. One by one, she refutes and demolishes a number of key assertions made by the IPCC and its supporters over the years.

The IPCC's material is prepared by the finest scientific minds?

5.0 out of 5 stars How the trick is done..... 12 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
A brilliantly written and well referenced explanation of a great illusion which is still fooling some of the people all of the time. Were the consequences of what Donna Laframboise describes not so serious this would have been an enjoyable read. It was certainly thought provoking.

Format:Kindle Edition
Donna Laframboise carefully traces the origins, structure and working practices of the world's leading climate bureaucracy with devastating results. We find that, far from being a disciplined and impartial judge of climate science - it is a partisan organisation which has been hijacked by green activists and political extremists from its very beginnings.

Many of its "leading scientists" turn out to be activist grad students with Greenpeace of WWF affiliations and no previously published scientific work. Its rules, procedures and time limits are regularly flouted to include more alarmist material and a high proportion of the included "science" comes not, as claimed, from peer-reviewed scientific papers - but from environmental activist's PR material.

A clearly written and revealing book - which might turn out to be a turning point in climate politics - read it!
