Industry lobbyists behind scientific claims in IPCC press release
The entire world will soon depend on renewable energy so governments ought to start subsidizing these industries immediately. So said the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in a report released Tuesday. The studys conclusion was such a blockbuster that the panel issued a press release last month previewing the finding. Close to 80 percent of the worlds energy supply could be met by renewables by mid-century if backed by the right enabling public policies a new report shows, it proclaimed.
Since this statement was supposedly based on actual scientific research, Steve McIntyre, editor of the Climate Audit blog, did what the IPCC must have assumed nobody would bother doing. He checked the sources cited in the report. He discovered the IPCCs banner claim was not the work of prestigious and disinterested scientists toiling away in a laboratory, but of hacks with a political agenda and direct financial stake in the issue.
The 80 percent claim was lifted directly from a paper entitled, Energy evolution 2010 - a Sustainable World Energy Outlook, whose primary authors included Sven Teske from Greenpeace and Christine Lins from the European Renewable Energy Council (EREC). According to the latter groups website, it is the united voice of the European renewable energy industry. EREC speaks on behalf of the companies that make windmills, solar panels and other uneconomic forms of energy that rely upon heavy government subsidies to turn a profit. Not surprisingly, the IPCCs primary goal has been to browbeat governments around the world into pouring taxpayer cash into this rent-seeking industry.

It was a balanced team work with different views and expertises represented
And if 90% of the world's population is eliminated.
Yep, I guess you could call it balanced. Greenpeace will counteract the companies that make windmills and solar panels, windmills kill birds and solar panels endanger turtles and lizards. :-)
Well I guess that huddling around a small stove burning animal dung is considered a renewable energy source.
Good article. Thanks for the ping.
Only if you don’t eat the fuel source.
