The IPCC consensus on climate change was phoney, says IPCC insider

By Lawrence Solomon
National Post, June 13, 2010

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, a prominent climate scientist and IPCC insider. The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen experts,” he states in a paper for Progress in Physical Geography, co-authored with student Martin Mahony.

“Claims such as ‘2,500 of the world’s leading scientists have reached a consensus that human activities are having a significant influence on the climate’ are disingenuous,” the paper states unambiguously, adding that they rendered “the IPCC vulnerable to outside criticism.”

Hulme, Professor of Climate Change in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia – the university of Climategate fame — is the founding Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and one of the UK’s most prominent climate scientists. Among his many roles in the climate change establishment, Hulme was the IPCC’s co-ordinating Lead Author for its chapter on ‘Climate scenario development’ for its Third Assessment Report and a contributing author of several other chapters.

“I did not say the ‘IPCC misleads’ anyone – it is claims that are made by other commentators, such as the caricatured claim I offer in the paper, that have the potential to mislead.”

I am grateful to the Climategate scandal for revealing the previously invisible alliance that destroyed the integrity of science since 1961 and prevents an honest debate over climate or any other important scientific issues today.

The UN, Al Gore, the news media, world leaders and their national science academies and research agencies (NASA, ESA, DOE, EPA, etc) now use “science” as a propaganda tool for their own purposes.

Former President Eisenhower tried to warn the public of this danger in his farewell address to the nation on 17 January 1961:

“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.”


Thus Dr. Ralph Cicerone, the President of the US National Academy of Sciences (US NAS), ignored a recent invitation on Physics World to an honest debate over climate and six other experimental facts that have been misrepresented by this group:

1. The Sun controls Earth’s climate.
2. The Sun is a plasma diffuser that sorts atoms by mass.
3. The Sun is mostly Fe, O, Ni, Si, S, Mg and Ca beneath a veneer of lightweight H and He.
4. [These same elements are the main constituents of the Earth and ordinary meteorites.]
5. The Sun is the remains of the supernova that exploded 5 Gyr ago to make the solar system.
6. The Sun is heated by neutron repulsion (60%), neutron decay (5%), and fusion of the decay product (35%). H that escapes the fusion process is called SW Hydrogen
7. Solar neutrinos do not oscillate away to protect the image of our corrupt federal research program.


With kind regards,

While comments are still being accepted, I urge you and other thoughtful critics of the IPCC consensus on the causes of climate change to go to the Physics Today news site and post a comment on NAS President Ralph Cicerone’s warning to the US Congress:

“Top US scientists warn Congress on the dangers of climate change”


In addition to doing this as a public service, your comments are likely to be studied by members of the US Congress and their staff.

With kind regards,
Oliver K. Manuel
