'Sort of like hush money--pay off the IPCC chairs and they'll leave you alone?' -- 'Field's snout in the trough seems identical to any number of 'climate scientists' (Field's scientific background is Biological Sciences. His PhD research was on Leaf Aging in a California Shrub) sucking off the National Academy of Sciences, NASA, NOAA, and other government teats.'
UN IPCC's Christopher Field Defends funding for IPCC as 'providing the world's governments with the best available information on climate science' -- The IPCC 'is a very good deal for the governments and for the world'
Field stands by 'Hockey Stick': 'Climate change caused by humans is already affecting our lives and livelihoods — with extreme storms, unusual floods and droughts, intense heat waves, rising seas and many changes in biological systems' -- 'Global climate warming, as evident these last few decades, is unprecedented for the past 1000 years — and this change is due to human activities'
Dr. Jacquelyn Gill: "The root causes of climate change are capitalism, white supremacy, and colonialism, all of which put profits over people and treat people and the environment as disposable commodities. Blaming folks like service workers, retail workers, and others is not a good look."
Dr. Happer and Dr. Lindzen summarize: “Misrepresentation, exaggeration, cherry picking or outright lying pretty much covers all the so-called evidence marshalled in support of the theory of imminent catastrophic global warming caused by fossil fuels and CO2.”
