Fritz Vahrenholt 30% Of The IPCC Are Greenpeace & WWF Activists
Posted by Tory Aardvark
The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has come in for repeated criticism of its scientific methods, peer review process and cherry picking of data to reinforce the scam that is Anthropogenic Global Warming.
To date there have been 2 books that have exposed the underhand dealings going on at the IPCC Andrew Montfort’s “The Hockey Stick Illusion” and Donna Laframboise’s recent work “The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World’s Top Climate Expert“.
Both are excellent books backed by an enormous amount of research, but neither Montford or Lamframboise have actually worked within the IPCC, unlike Fritz Vahrenholt:
In his new book “The Cold Sun. Why the climate catastrophe will not happen,” Professor Fritz Vahrenholt, former environment senator and CEO of RWE Innogy, outlines his thesis that global warming will be significantly less substantial than previously thought. By the end of the century, he believes, there will be just an increase of one degree Celsius. The influence of the sun on the Earth’s climate, however, has been significantly underestimated until now.
Professor Vahrenholt was interviewed by Die Welt on line:
Welt Online: You have supported the IPCC’s paradigm for many years. Now you are publishing a book in which you questioned the doctrine of global climate change. How did this change of heart happen?
Vahrenholt: Yes, I was an active supporter of the CO2 theory. But then I had two pivotal moments that have inspired me to reassess my position.
First, I was invited in February 2010 as a scientific reviewer for the IPCC report on renewable energy in Washington. There, I realized that the drafting of the report was done in anything but a scientific manner. The report is littered with errors. At the end, representatives of Greenpeace edited the final version. The result was the nonsensical claim that 80 percent of total world energy needs can be met with renewable energy.
These developments shocked me. I thought, if such things can happen in this report, then they might happen in other IPCC reports too. Of the 34 members of the IPCC Secretariat, the bulk are from the global South – such as Cuba, Sudan, Madagascar, Iran or China. These countries all have an interest in transfer payments. Until then, I had thought researchers would meet and discuss. No, in fact these are delegates representing nation states – and not always democratic ones. They represent interests and exert influence.
Welt Online: And the second key experience?
Vahrenholt: At RWE Innogy, we were confronted with the fact that the wind and the corresponding power generation were dipping by an appreciable extent. I investigated this phenomenon scientifically and found that it has nothing to do with CO2 and global warming, but that natural climate processes are responsible for it. The activity of the sun plays a major role. I have been working on the subject matter and then worked a year on this book.
Welt Online: You talked about delegates who meet at UN meetings. But scientists in Germany and elsewhere are still mostly convinced that mankind is largely responsible for climate change trough the emission of CO2.
Vahrenholt: But these scientists are not asked what the final report text looks like. They are merely quoted. And there is tremendous pressure on scientists to conform to the mainstream. If you fail to do so, then you will no longer receive any funding or you will be excluded from conferences and talks. This happened to myself. The University of Osnabrück has excluded me from an invited lecture because I have written this book. Dissenting opinions are no longer allowed.
Welt Online: On what scientific basis does your criticism of the majority opinion rest?
Vahrenholt: I am not a climatologist, of course, but I work in the same way as the IPCC. I look at thousands of scientific publications on the topic. In my book I also provide a forum to those whose publications that have been removed by the shortening of the IPCC’s final report. The so-called Core Writing Team of the IPCC, which selects the material according to policy objectives, is made up to 30 percent of people who are affiliated with Greenpeace and the WWF. I had not known that fact previously.
So much for peer reviewed science that the warming alarmists harp on about endlessly, the Glaciergate debacle was caused by an inexperienced and obscure Indian Scientist talking to an activist from a Green NGO.
The IPCC like its parent organisation the UN is corrupt and self serving, there is no real science it’s all a tissue of lies from the 97% of scientists agree porky to all the failed predictions of this or that Apocalyptic event that was going to happen by 2010, then its was 2012, now it’s whatever date they make up next.
