SitatThis 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.
Sitat fra: seoto på september 10, 2013, 16:04:28 PMNå 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.
SitatThis 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!
SitatDarwall 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
