When Pachauri claims to have a Nobel prize and encourages his fellow workers in the IPCC to do same for themselves, she checked and discovered that he didn't and he shouldn't.
When he tells that his is not to prescribe, that his organisation, the IPCC is not there to push policy, she notes that he does prescribe, indeed preaches, and notes that his organisation is ultimately dominated by policy-makers and their agents who edit and approve the final 'Summaries for Policy Makers' that are probably the only widely read outcomes of the IPCC's efforts.
She notes he tells us to eat less meat, and that he once jetted halfway round the world to take part in a casual cricket match. His earlier nonsense about the IPCC's only using peer-reviewed literature in its deliberations led to the title of this book. Here are his words "IPCC studies only peer-review science. Let someone publish the data in a decent credible publication.Read more ›
Laframboise's book is a collection of her blog posts about the IPCC and it's chairman over the past few year's. If you want to catch up with the story this collection of blogs will fill you in.
I have to add that the format of collecting blog posts together to tell a story is not ideal. It results in a series of rather repetitive short chapters which can be irritating and made me regularly skip ahead, however I already had a reasonable knowledge of the story the book was trying to tell.
I am an academic myself and would recommend this book to any student, journalist or academic interested in the politics of climate science.
It is both easy and exciting reading, almost like reading a detective novel except that this is real. i recommend beaurocrats and politicians to read it. It will help them to know what is true or not concerning global warming and CO2 emissions.
I have analyzed climate reports and research for the last 10 years and can confirm that everything I have read is correct.
