Nå har Donna Laframboise kommet med en ny bok. Den handler om Rajendra Pachauri og IPCC. Nå venter jeg bare på at hun tar en nærmere titt på de folkene som ga Pachauri denne jobben, og hvorfor de valgte nettopp ham.


Into the Dustbin



Sitat
This book is a collection of essays about Pachauri originally published as blog posts between February 2010 and August 2013. Essay number one, The IPCC and the Peace Prize, appears here for the first time. It documents how Pachauri improperly advised IPCC personnel that they were Nobel laureates after that organization was awarded half of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize (Al Gore received the other half).

Scientists aren’t supposed to embellish. They’re supposed to be clear-eyed about what is true and what is false. The idea that hundreds of scientists have been padding their resumés, that they’ve been walking around in broad daylight improperly claiming to be Nobel laureates, isn’t something any normal person would expect.

But that is exactly what happened. It took the IPCC five years to correct the record. During that time, media outlets, science academies, and government officials went along for the ride. The moral of this story is that, when faced with a choice between the unadorned truth and exaggeration, IPCC personnel made the wrong call. Their judgment can’t be trusted.
Noen ganger er løgnen for stor til at man kan få øye på den.
Og når man ikke kan se at det er en løgn, velger man naturlig å tro på den.

Flott at hun kommer med ei ny bok, og jeg håper den vil gjøre nytte. Angående spørsmålet du stiller, vil det aldri skje. En pornoforfatter og jernbaneingeniør kan kritiseres. Der føler Donna at hun slår noenlunde til siden. Det er jo ikke dårlig det, sammenlignet med nordmenn. De slår stort sett nedover. Men oppover, der tør hun i likhet med nordmenn ikke en gang titte.
Ja heldigvis flere der ser galskapen; men stadig alt for få.
Dertil kommer desværre de der ikke vil se, hva de ser.

Age of Global Warming



Rachel Carson's epoch-creating Silent Spring marked the beginnings of the environmental movement in the 1960s, its 'First Wave' peaking at the 1972 Stockholm Conference. The invention of sustainable development by Barbara Ward, along with Rachel Carson the founder of the environmental movement, created an alliance of convenience between First World environmentalism and a Third World set on rapid industrialisation. The First Wave crashed in 1973 with the Yom Kippur War and decade-long energy crisis. Revived by a warming economy of the 1980s, environmentalism found a new, political champion in 1988: Margaret Thatcher. Four years later at the Rio Earth Summit, politics settled the science. One hundred and ninety-two nations agreed that mankind was causing global warming and carbon dioxide emissions should be cut. Rio launched rounds of climate change meetings and summits, with developing nations refusing to countenance any agreement restraining their greenhouse gas emissions - their blanket exemption from the 1997 Kyoto Protocol leading to its rejection by the United States that year, and again twelve years later in Copenhagen. This therefore marked not just the collapse of the climate change negotiations, but something larger - an unprecedented humiliation for the West at the hands of the rising powers of the East.

This is the best book I ever read on this subject. No endless climate data tables, no avalanche of graphs, just clear logic, excellent historical developments and easy to read writing style. Darwall does a phenomenal job in displaying the history of the many conferences and reunions leading to a quasi universal adoption of a theory that is un-scientific in its core. How come that learned societies, media, politicians, churchs battle for an un-proven problem that demands so great sacrifices to be solved. As Darwall writes "the Global Warming Policy Paradox is that the therapy causes the malady it was designed to avert"
An outstanding book!
Sitat
Darwall does an excellent job demonstrating how science became widely politicized and actually hijacked by extremists pushing a Malthusian agenda. Truly, perhaps the best book written on this topic
