UN IPCC Summary For Policymakers ‘Corruption of Science’

W*shington – Sen. James Inhofe, (R-Okla.),
Ranking Member of the Environment & Public Works
Committee, today commented on the UN
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s
(IPCC) Fourth Assessment Summary for Policymakers.

"This is a political document, not a scientific
report, and it is a shining example of the
corruption of science for political gain. The
media has failed to report that the IPCC Summary
for Policymakers was not approved by scientists
but by UN political delegates and bureaucrats,"
S*nator Inhofe said. The IPCC is only releasing
the Summary for Policymakers today, not the
actual scientific report which is not due out until May 2007.

"This is nothing new. On November 15th, 2005, I
addressed my colleagues in the United
StatesS*nate to express the importance of
returning integrity to the processes that govern
the work of the IPCC. I outlined several concrete
proposals to reform the IPCC process during this
S*nate Floor address and in a subsequent
follow-up letter to the IPCC chairman," Senator
Inhofe said. (Link)

"On December 7, 2005, I followed up my speech
with a letter to the IPCC Chairman noting that
the ‘science had been manipulated in order to
reach a predetermined conclusion.’ Sadly, the
IPCC has refused to make any of the reforms
necessary to ensure scientific integrity,"
S*nator Inhofe added. (Link)

"The UN guidelines themselves mandate that the
science be altered to conform to the Summary for
Policymakers which is not approved by the
scientists, but by political delegates of the UN," Senator Inhofe said.

The IPCC concedes it alters the underlying
scientific conclusions on page 4 of "Appendix A
to the Principles Governing IPCC Work":
"Changes (other than grammatical or minor
editorial changes) made after acceptance by the
Working Group or the Panel shall be those
necessary to ensure consistency with the Summary
for Policymakers or the Overview Chapter." (Link

"You don’t need to look any farther than
yesterday’s AP article about the UN IPCC meeting
in Paris where political delegates are arguing
about the final wording of the Summary for
Policymakers. Riibeta Abeta of the island nation
Kiribati, openly admitted to the AP that the
Summary for Policymakers is designed to convince
world leaders to take action. ‘The purpose is to
get [policymakers] moving,’ Abeta said, according
to the AP," S*nator Inhofe explained. (Link to AP
