Kurzbeschreibung

"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

"...you 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.

Teenager leben oft unter einer Glasglocke des finanziellen und autoritären Schutzes ihrer Eltern. Ihr Selbstbewusstsein ist häufig nicht das Ergebnis von Leistung, sondern das Resultat der schützenden Hand von Mama und Papa. Großmäuligkeit, Intoleranz und aggressives Verhalten werden von den vor Liebe blinden Eltern als Durchsetzungsstärke interpretiert, Fehler übersehen oder aus Angst vor Gesichtsverlust unter den Tisch gekehrt. Tadel oder gar Bestrafung sind keine Optionen des elterlichen Erziehungsarsenals.

Was hier wie eine maßlose Übertreibung klingt, ist nach Ansicht der Journalistin Donna Laframboise eine reale Umschreibung der Beziehung zwischen der Weltstaatengemeinschaft und ihrem klimawissenschaftlichen Wunschkind, dem Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Ihr neues Buch 'The Delinquent Teenager who was mistaken for the world's top climate expert' führt seine Leser durch die weithin unbekannten Details der Organisation, Arbeitsweise und Politik des IPCC. Kritikfähigkeit? Fehlanzeige. Expertise? So mancher verantwortlicher Autor hat erst die Gelegenheit ergriffen ganze Gutachtenkapitel beim IPCC abzuliefert bevor er die Muße hatte sein Universitätsstudium mit dem Master abzuschließen oder erste Forschungserfahrungen beim Verfassen einer Doktorarbeit zu sammeln. Politische Korrektheit, Herkunft und Geschlecht sind mindestens ebenso wichtige Auswahlkriterien wie der 'richtige' Standpunkt zu Klima- und Umweltfragen. Weltbekannten Fachleuten mit langjähriger Forschungsreputation wird dagegen die Tür gewiesen, wenn nur der Verdacht besteht sie könnten wissenschaftlich unabhängig sein oder konträre Positionen zur herrschenden Meinung der Klimaforschung einnehmen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ungereimtheiten 24. Juni 2013
Format:Taschenbuch
In diesem Buch geht es um die Arbeitsweise des Weltklimarates (IPCC).

Der IPCC gilt als Versammlung der weltbesten Wissenschaftler, die sicher stellen, dass nur die besten verfügbaren Studien in ihren Bericht einfließen. Wenn man die Mitwirkenden anonym befragt und den Bericht von 2007 einer unabhängigen Prüfung unterzieht ("Citizen Audit"), ergibt sich folgendes Bild:

- viele Autoren haben ihr Studium noch gar nicht abgeschlossen
- weltweit anerkannte Experten werden nicht berücksichtigt
- die Auswahl der Autoren erfolgt nach politischen Kriterien
- viele Autoren sind Aktivisten (also grüne Lobbyisten), sodass ihre Aussagen einseitig sind
- die Verfahren sind intransparent und ohne Qualitätssicherung
- etwa ein Drittel der zitierten Quellen des IPCC-Berichts von 2007 genügt wissenschaftlichen Anforderungen nicht
- wenn es zu einem bestimmten Thema keinen geeigneten Aufsatz gibt, wird dieser geschrieben und dann zitiert
- die wichtigen Autoren geben die zitierten Zeitschriften gern selbst heraus und beeinflussen somit deren Inhalt

Als Fazit ergibt sich: Zweck des IPCC ist nicht Wissenschaft, sondern Politik
.

***

Mir hat das Buch gut gefallen. Was man schon seit längerer Zeit vermutet hatte, wird hier nachgewiesen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A necessary investigation 19. April 2014
Von RAS
Format:Taschenbuch
Vorbemerkung, das Buch gibt es jetzt auf Deutsch: Von einem Jugendstraftäter, der mit dem besten Klimaexperten der Welt verwechselt wurde: Ein IPCC-Exposé.

Much discussion of climate change is based on appeals to authority. For many, there can be no greater authority than the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). After all, its work is performed by thousands of the world's top scientists, reviewing the peer reviewed literature and producing a synthesis of what we know about climate change. Donna Laframboise is a Canadian journalist and she has done some investigation to verify if all this is true. And what she discovered was a surprise to her, and I must say, also to me when I read her book.
- The IPCC does not rely only on peer reviewed literature as it claims. Laframboise looked at the many references in the more than 3000 pages of the IPCC reports. There were thousands of references to non-peer reviewed literature - even to newspaper and magazine articles, reports from bodies such as the WWF and so on. In some places, over 40% of the references were to so-called "grey literature" (non-peer reviewed reports).
- Deadlines were repeatedly stretched so that references that supported IPCC positions could be included. In some cases these additional references were added months after the chapters of the report were supposed to have finished.
- In many cases relevant literature was ignored, and IPCC chapter authors were able to high-light their own work at the expense of other work.
- The IPCC does not involve thousands of the world's top scientists as it claims. Many of them were young, inexperienced and in some cases not even qualified.

Von Urs Neu
Format:Taschenbuch
In the new book titled 'the delinquent teenager' Donna Laframboise (DL), a Canadian journalist, tries to depict the IPCC as a 'spoiled child' that should be rightened and better educated, e.g. by scientific academies. The author denotes herself as a climate sceptic ('climate sceptic' or 'denier': people who do not believe that there is a noticeable human influence on climate), and unfortunately the book exhibits very quickly the common deficiencies of sceptic's arguments: there are some correct basic points, which are surrounded by a lot of one-sided argumentation and errors. It has to be noted that the basic (and correct) points have already been highlighted and discussed in an evaluation report by the Interacademic Council (IAC) in August 2010. 'The Delinquent Teenager' does not exhibit any new relevant points. Unfortunately, it only adds erroneous criticism which originates from selecting some single cases or from missing knowledge about actual processes.

The main problem of the book: It only deals with the messenger, but does not really care about the message. It starts with the scientific academies: DL several times challenges the scientific academies to look at the IPCC process and to look after that 'spoiled child'. She considers the academies as scientific authorities, which should set the standards and speak out on that topic. She welcomes the report of the IAC (see above) and blames the IPCC of not having implemented its recommendations. However, while it is undisputed that there are deficiencies in the IPCC process and that there is room for improvement (as in every human organization in the world, by the way) one has to keep in mind two things:
1) There is no such thing as a scientific assessment of the state of knowledge in any other scientific field.

4.0 von 5 Sternen the emperor has no clothes 17. Oktober 2011
Von tertius - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It never ceases to amaze me to regularly come across so-called "reviews" of books on amazon by people who have not read the book in question. Pick any book on a controversial topic and you will find a stream of such outpourings masquerading as reviews by ideologically driven non-readers.

Are such people so insecure in their own positions or worldviews, or so dogmatic that they cannot even bother to read a book that takes a stance different from the one they hold? Instead they need to immediately login and launch into abusive tirades, putdowns and ad hominem attacks? Real reviews may be positive or negative, laudatory or critical, but reviews by non-readers are dishonest, hypocritical and pathetic. That some of these non-readers are recognisably well known names and partisans in the very issues or debates covered in a particular book compounds the hypocrisy.

Let me repeat, one cannot honestly review a book one has not read. Nor can one attack an author without giving chapter and verse examples from that book of where he or she has committed the heinous and fallacious errors of which he/she is accused.

I have read Donna Laframboise's "The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World's Top Climate Expert". It has a cleverly provocative title that some true believers in catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) could consider sacrilegious. The book is however not an argument against CAGW as such. It is neither an academic treatise nor a polemic, but an investigative report into the operations of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)... an investigation that uncovers a sleazy underbelly to a powerful and prestigious organisation before which much of the world's media, opinion makers and political leaders genuflect.

Laframboise brings a reporter's eyes and nose to the IPCC. The book is an easy and fast read but Laframboise's breezy writing belies the extensive research and explosive details contained therein. It's revelations and allegations are disturbing - and are supported by extensive footnotes and links that build a persuasive case that the IPCC is, in fact, a law unto itself - a hotbed of cronyism, shoddy science in the service of political activism, and politically-correct hand wringing. If she is even half correct, the IPCC has a serious case to answer. Read it for yourself, follow her links, examine her footnotes and then give your critique or rebuttal. Until then hold your tongue... and your typing fingers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Its not about the science. Its the politics, stupid. 17. Oktober 2011
Von Les Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As of this writing, there are 3 negative reviews, 21 ea 5 star, and 1 ea 4 star reviews.

Its painfully obvious that none of the 1 star reviewers even read the book. Which when one thinks of it, is a good metaphor for the IPCC. Why review the actual thing, when you can just present your pre-concieved viewpoint?

Peter Gleick: If you need it, I will give you the 4.95, so you can actually read the book. I bought the pdf version, so I can lend you that.

A short summary, Peter. The book is about how the IPCC is structured, and how it works, albeit dysfunctionally. Its about how the IPCC is composed of climate activists from NGOs like Greenpeace, the WWF and EDF. Its about how the IPCC ignores its own rules, especially on grey literature. Its about how, when an independent review made recommenadtions to reform the IPCC, the IPCC simply ignored most of them.

Most telling is the recommendation to institute a Conflict of Interest (COI) rule. I find it amazing that a large governmental organization DOES NOT HAVE A COI code.

When asked why the COI has not been put in place for the AR5, Pachuari replied that it would be unfair to the members who had already been chosen. (!?!)

So, Peter, you are supposedly a scientist. Try researching the topic next time, please.

My review? Well written, and concise. Everything is documented, with links to the source information. Much of that information is from the IPCC.

I recommend reading it twice. Once, to get the full impact without breaking the flow. But watch your blood pressure.

The next time you read it, follow the links. As a good scientist should do; trust, but verify.

If this book does not shatter your opinion of the IPCC, then you must already be a member of the IPCC.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Investigative Journalism!! 16. Oktober 2011
Von Timothy K. Hulsey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
In The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World's Top Climate Expert, Donna Laframboise blows the lid off the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Instead of being a neutral body evaluating whether there has, in fact, been unprecedented global warming, the IPCC started with the premise that global warming was increasing at an alarming rate. Instead of investigating whether this warming was due to natural temperature cycles related to natural phenomena, human induced production of a trace atmospheric gas, carbon dioxide, was the cause celebre from the beginning. Instead of convening the world's experts, Laframboise exposes many of the IPCC "scientists" as being young, un-degreed, sometimes unpublished fledglings! She shows abundant examples of true world experts, purposely avoided by the UN IPCC, because they disagreed with the anthropogenic global warming party line.
Surprisingly, instead of gathering scientists with no preconceived notions of climate change, Donna Laframbroise lays bare the high percentage of IPCC scientist who had been closely associated with and many times employed by the powerful and monied environmental activist groups, such as the World Wildlife Fund, The Environmental Defense Fund, and others. Thus, these IPCC staff were following an agenda. They were "more activist than scientist!" She exposes The IPCC as a shoddy organization who didn't even follow what few rules it had, but portrayed itself as the indisputable oracle of impending climate disaster backed by the consensus of "thousands" of the world's most best scientists!
The Delinquent Teenager... is a fascinating unraveling of the world's most powerful voice for redistributing trillions of dollars in the name of the unproven theory of anthropogenic global warming, a theory rapidly losing many of its early proponents.
If Donna Laframbroise hasn't put the final nail in the coffin of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, I'll be surprised!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stop The Madness Before We Bankrupt The World 16. Oktober 2011
Von Carsten Stroud - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I've followed Donna Laframboise in print and on the 'net for years, because she thinks clearly, works harder than ten other investigative journalists combined, and has a refreshingly iconoclastic view of the world - she sees it for the folly it often is, and yet retains her affection for - and trust in - the basic common sense of the global citizenry. But in this book, Donna has truly hit her stride - the issues that surround the science of Man-Made Global Warming are grave matters and they require serious grown-up attention. The problem is that serious grown-up attention is thin on the ground in the modern news whirlwind, where opinions that ought to be nuanced and well-considered - and above all FACT-CHECKED - are instead thrown into the wind without a backward glance. Donna has taken two years at least - at I can only imagine what personal toll - to bring her serious professional skills to one of the most contentious and important issues facing humans on this planet. And the result is a devastating critique of the United Nations panel on Climate Change. No matter what your position on Global Warming - and there are many reasonable if differing views - this relentless and yet extremely amusing assessment of the vanities, idiocies, and outright delinquent irresponsibility of the IPCC ought to make you carefully reconsider everything you thought you knew about Global Warming.

Outstanding book by one of North Americas premier investigative journalists.

Carsten Stroud - author of various thrillers none of which were half as compelling as this short sharp and steely work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Important Exposure of IPCC Conspiracy 16. Oktober 2011
Von Karin A. Tesdorf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a brilliant expose of how the IPCC doesn't follow its own guidelines while mandating that everyone else must. It shows how the IPCC is virtually a Science-Free Zone. It reveals the intimate relationship of the WWF and the IPCC almost none of this relationship being based on Science, settled or not. The book investigates IPCC scare-campaigns like the CO2 'tipping-point fiasco' and the Hockey Stick Fraud. It details the IPCC role in the libeling of Spencer and Christy by Trenberth.
This book reveals the IPCC for what it is. A politically motivated and publicly funded tool to facilitate World government and World financial control
