Well, the UN IPPC’s report card is out for its Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), and a citizen audit has given it 21 grades of F:

21 of 44 chapters in the United Nations’ Nobel-winning climate bible earned an F on a report card we are releasing today. Forty citizen auditors from 12 countries examined 18,531 sources cited in the report – finding 5,587 to be not peer-reviewed.

Contrary to statements by the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the celebrated 2007 report does not rely solely on research published in reputable scientific journals. It also cites press releases, newspaper and magazine clippings, working papers, student theses, discussion papers, and literature published by green advocacy groups. Such material is often called “grey literature.”

We’ve been told this report is the gold standard. We’ve been told it’s 100 percent peer-reviewed science. But thousands of sources cited by this report have not come within a mile of a scientific journal.

Meantime, more than two months after this blog reported it, Real Climate is still laughably touting the IPCC reports on their page of global warming resources:

“You can’t do better than the IPCC reports themselves”

Via Nobelprize.org’s FAQ:

Is it possible to revoke a Nobel Prize?

No, it is not possible according to the statutes of the Nobel Foundation, § 10.

With the report today of a UN scientist’s frank admission that false data regarding Himalayan glaciers was used in the UN IPCC’s AR4, if there ever was a case for a Nobel Peace Prize to be revoked, this is it!

It’s time for the Nobel Committe to swallow their pride and set a new precedent by revoking the UN IPCC”s and Al Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize, and save some shred of what little credibility they have left.

No mention of turning down the earth’s thermostat a fraction of a degree here:

Haiti has justifiably been taking up alot of energy and focus of the United Nations over the last two days. But it is worth noting that there has been a long scheduled meeting of entrepreneurs and investors concerned about climate change at the UN today. The United Nations Investors Summit on Climate Risk today will feature Al Gore, George Soros, AFL-CIO President Richard Trupka, and Ted Turner among others.  The UN Foundation has played a lead role in organizing the meeting.*   The idea here is to get stakeholders talking about ways to “to bring together leading institutional investors, state treasurers, and financial services firms worldwide to consider the scale and urgency of climate change risks and to analyze emerging investment strategies and opportunities.” You can watch the proceedings live via UN Webcast.

Climate Depot is reporting:

Former Vice President Al Gore declared that the Congressional climate bill will help bring about “global governance.”

“I bring you good news from the U.S., “Gore said on July 7, 2009 in Oxford at the Smith School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment, sponsored by UK Times.

“Just two weeks ago, the House of Representatives passed the Waxman-Markey climate bill,” Gore said, noting it was “very much a step in the right direction.” President Obama has pushed for the passage of the bill in the Senate.

Gore touted the climate bill, claiming it “will dramatically increase the prospects for success” in combating what he sees as the “crisis” of man-made global warming.

“But it is the awareness itself that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements.” (Editor’s Note: Gore makes the “global governance” comment at the 1min. 10 sec. mark in this UK Times video.)

Gore’s call for “global governance” echoes former French President Jacques Chirac’s call in 2000.

On November 20, 2000, then French President Chirac said during a speech at The Hague that the UN’s Kyoto Protocol represented “the first component of an authentic global governance.”

I guess one could say that this is one of rare moments when Al Gore is actually telling the truth about his supposed “solutions” to global warming climate change climate crisis our deteriorating atmosphere.

Anytime Gore et al speak of their favored “solutions” in terms such as “global governance” it just confirms all of we skeptics worst fears about the true intentions of Gore , the rest of the alarmists, and the UN’s (through its IPCC) role in fanning the flames of this made-up issue. The UN receives 22% of it’s regular budget from the United States, and 26% of its peace-keeping operations from the US. And what do we get for our investment. A UN that is hell-bent on undermining US interests through just the sort of “global governance” that Al Gore is touting.

I feel bad for all of the regular folks, and the children that were legitimately scared by Al Gore’s science fiction movie, An Incovenient Truth, and didn’t realize that they were being manipulated so that ulterior Progressive political goals could be achieved.  And if you are one of those people, I invite you to the skeptical side. Welcome.
