Doomed Planet

IPCC correction

On October 31, 2011, I published a Quadrant Online review of Donna Laframboise’s new book Delinquent Teenager about faulty processes within the IPCC.

In the review I referred to an Australian scientist Lisa Alexander who was officially listed by the IPCC as a 2007 lead author although at the time she had no PhD. 

The University of NSW protested and said Lisa had been only an IPCC “contributing author”, not lead author. 

I referred the complaint to Donna, who herself complained to the IPCC that it had mis-stated the status of a number of its own scientific authors. 

The result: the IPCC has now corrected the on-line version of its 2007 Fourth Assessment Report

Well done, Donna!
