The shameful failure of environmental journalists in general is revealed, incidentally, by the series of blogposts compiled in this important book. What were they thinking when they took the IPCC in general and its nominal leader Pachauri in particular at face value? Was that just part of their mission to save the world by encouraging we the public to take them seriously, and sit, thanks to their reportings, at the feet of dedicated wise ones? Well, feet of clay don't weather well, nor do they have integrity. While those eco-journos slept (at best) or connived (at worst), Donna Laframboise was up and about doing some checking of her own. As a thinker, as a writer, as an investigative journalist. It doesn't seem to have been so hard, as it turns out - or at least she makes it look easy.

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.

Those of us who have been involved in the climate debate, for that's what it is, over the past few year's will be aware of the political shenanigan's and blatant activism of it's chairman, Rajendra Pachauri. His "voodoo science" comments concerning Himalayan glacier retreat were a disgraceful episode which could never have happened if the IPCC actually stuck to its own alleged policy of only relying on peer reviewed papers for its assessment reports.
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.

What this book does is to throw into question the legitimacy of the IPCC. If this lady is right the IPCC is a completely corrupt and fraudulent organisation. This in turn means that Catastophic Golbal Warming is an enormous foolish scare similar to the great fear over the bug which was going to destroy all our computer records at the turn of the century. I must say that she writes with authority and she knows what she is talking about. It's an important book.

A very comprehensive analysis of the chairman of IPCC Rajendra Pachauri, his statements and what Donna found to be the truth. She has done a marvelous job disecting IPCC statements and to show what is really going on behind the scenes.
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.
