UN IPCC lead author rips IPCC’s claims as ‘outright false’: ‘Specific conclusions’ from papers countering IPCC were ‘filtered out in support of a false claim of consensus’
Richard Tol: 'The models have not been validated. So, the hypothesis so confidently expressed by the IPCC has no empirical content...Writing the 1st-order draft, the authors of Chapter 11 were aware that there is no consensus (their words) on the effect of induced technological change on the costs of emission reduction. Writing the 2nd-order draft, the authors claimed that there is a consensus. In the published chapter, there is not a sliver of doubt on the sign.'
