Debunking the myth of 'thousands' of UNIPCC climate scientists
"The time is well overdue to destroy the myth that there are 'thousands' of scientists supporting claims of catastrophic global warming," says Owen McShane, chair of the policy panel of the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition.
"One of our people, John McLean, of Melbourne, has just completed an extensive analysis of the recent report of Working Group 1 of the Fourth Assessment Report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
