Myth of 'thousands' of UNIPCC climate scientists

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). He found in the critical Chapter 9, there were only five reviewers, none of whom had impeccable credibility, who explicitly endorsed the claim that humans have a significant influence on climate.

"John's comprehensive analysis is available on the coalition's website:

"It should be read by everyone who has been misguided into fears for the future of our planet, and those who will have to meet the costs of the unnecessary carbon charges that are about to inflate the costs of so many of the necessities of modern life.

"Especially, it should be read by politicians, news media editors and zealots like Jim Footner of Greenpeace," said Mr McShane.
