Harvard Professor Accuses IPCC of Academic Fraud to Fit Their Agenda.

A top US academic has dramatically revealed how government officials forced him to change a hugely influential scientific report on climate change to suit their own interests. 

Harvard professor Robert Stavins electrified the worldwide debate on climate change on Friday by sensationally publishing a letter online in which he spelled out the astonishing interference.

He said the officials, representing ‘all the main countries and regions of the world’ insisted on the changes in a late-night meeting at a Berlin conference centre two weeks ago.

Three quarters of the original version of the document ended up being deleted.

Prof Stavins claimed the intervention amounted to a serious ‘conflict of interest’ between scientists and governments. His revelation is significant because it is rare for climate change experts to publicly question the process behind the compilation of reports on the subject.

Prof Stavins, Harvard’s Professor of Business and Government, was one of two ‘co-ordinating lead authors’ of a key report published by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) earlier this month.

The fundamental issue when it comes to understanding the nature of climate science is the fact that we cannot tell the difference between climate and weather in any local sense so that we have to rely on the very few 'climate research institutes' to tell us what is going on overall - since they process world wide temperature data. The problem is that these institutes have been caught 'cooking the books.'

The Climategate scandal and fundamental analysis of world wide temperature monitoring stations show that the raw data is being shaped to indicate a warming world.  Consider that we've been told the poles are sensitive to climate change. If that is the case, while the Arctic Sea Ice is relatively low (although it has grown back significantly) the Antarctica Sea Ice is at an all time high. Has one pole cancelled out the other so that there is no overall Sea Ice loss?

While it does appear that the Earth has been in a warm period over recent decades, this does not appear to be correlated to CO2 output - no statistical warming has appeared in the last 17 years despite the increase in CO2 emissions.

Nevertheless, because of general pollution with smog, plastics and chemical poisoning, we MUST move towards more sustainable technology - or at least clean up some of our present systems. We also need to ditch the current nuclear technology which poses a huge threat to the planet. We cannot afford anymore (cataclysmic) Fukushima style meltdowns.
