SEARCH BLOG: GLOBAL WARMING
The Climate Science blog has an interesting discussion about the process the UN's IPCC used to select information that was used to develop it's global warming report.
There are a lot of comments about the validity and redundancy of papers either used or not used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)... a United Nations creation.
While the discussion is focused on the scientific merits of the IPCC process in choosing or refusing source documents, my comment was:
The question at hand is why the UN, a political organization of Byzantine nature, should be trusted to have a political process that should be trusted regarding scientific investigation?
Dr. Pielke asks a rational, scientist’s question as to why peer-reviewed studies that contradict the UN’s IPCC positions are ignored.
Is that kind of like asking the Pope why he ignores positions that contradict church orthodoxy?
Perhaps because they highlight an inconvenient truth? (sorry)
