Or maybe just a continuation of all the lows-

US school infiltration attempt by Heartland’s IPCC Parody

Posted on 30 October 2013 by gpwayne


"Despite criticizing climate scientists for being overconfident about their data, models and theories, the Heartland Institute proclaims a conspicuous confidence in single studies and grand interpretations...it makes many bold assertions that are often questionable or misleading and do not highlight the uncertainties... Many climate sceptics seem to review scientific data and studies not as scientists but as attorneys, magnifying doubts and treating incomplete explanations as falsehoods rather than signs of progress towards the truth. ... The Heartland Institute and its ilk are not trying to build a theory of anything. They have set the bar much lower, and are happy muddying the waters."

"Heart of the Matter", Nature 475 editorial (28 July 2011)

Many US teachers have been sent a memo by The Heartland Institute, an organisation whose mission is to “promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems”. The topic of the memo was a report on climate change by the NIPCC, an acronym for “Not the International Panel on Climate Change”.

In essence, educators are being asked by Heartland to review climate change science at a remove. By distributing the NIPCC report “Climate Change Reconsidered II – Physical Science” (CCR2) to teachers, Heartland hopes that the view they sponsor via the NIPCC – one that entirely contradicts the official findings of the IPCC – will prevail in the classroom, or at least feature in the curriculum.

Such initiatives present educators with a problem. Both the official IPCC AR5 report and that of the NIPCC run to thousands of pages. Even Summaries for Policy-Makers (SPMs) make demands that busy schedules may not easily accommodate.

Armed with only a modest knowledge of climate change science, it is all too clear that the NIPCC report is not scientific, does not accurately reflect current climate science, and deliberately and systematically seeks to misinform and mislead.

By presenting logical arguments, credible observations and rational comparisons, it is hoped these notes will help readers decide for themselves what our children should be taught, free from pernicious influence, disinformation and meretricious propaganda.

The Credibility of Sources

The IPCC is an organisation created and operated under the auspices of the United Nations. It is a democratic institution; over 150 countries participate, review its work and approve its reports. Those reports are created by hundreds of scientists elected from a candidate list comprising several thousand names. The chosen scientists  (lead authors) review and report on the work of thousands of others, and anyone – including members of the public – can involve themselves as reviewers. The process is open, transparent and strives to be egalitarian. More than 60% of contributors to the latest report (AR5) have not previously contributed, adding fresh insights and views. No contributors to IPCC reports are paid for their work.

Conversely, the NIPCC was created by the Heartland Institute, a privately run organisation with significant connections to the fossil fuel industry, from whom it receives funding. Heartland was previously associated with campaigns funded by the tobacco industry to discredit science attesting to the damage caused by smoking tobacco.  Its several reports have contributions from a number of the same lead authors. The 2009 report had 35 contributors; the 2011 report had 8 contributors. NIPCC contributors are paid for their contributions.

This latest report (CCR2) claims to be written by “a team of some 50 scientists”.  In fact, there are 52 listed contributors, of which 5 are duplicate entries. Of the 47 people who authored CCR2, and despite claims to the contrary, only 35 appear to have professional scientific backgrounds. Of that 35, 16 of the listed contributors are retired e.g. emeritus positions. And while the IPCC purposefully seeks representation from developing nations (30% of contributors), the NIPCC authors are drawn from only 14 developed countries – no developing countries had any input. 53% of contributors were from the US or Australia. (See this XLS spreadsheet for an annotated list of contributors).

The Quality of the Report

Both the IPCC and its parody are ‘synthesis reports’. They purport to summarise the science of climate change. You might expect that both reports would draw on all the recent climate science available to them. This is true of the IPCC, but in the case of the NIPCC, it has been noted that their work is highly selective. The report claims to be ‘independent’, yet its authors constantly cite their own work, that of other contributors, and frequently quote each other. Numerous papers widely discredited within climate science are still cited by the NIPCC.

Perhaps more importantly, the latest NIPCC report repeats many of the myths about climate change that it published in previous work. While the IPCC catalogues recent scientific developments, the NIPCC appears to find very little has changed since its last ‘rebuttal’, a position seemingly at odds with the increasing amount of climate change research around the world. The following arguments were published in previous NIPCC reports, and are reiterated in this one: Temperature record is unreliable, Models are unreliable, It's a natural cycle, It's the sun, Sea level rise predictions are exaggerated, It's not bad

The CCR2 report also exhibits a flaw so basic it would not be condoned in the submission of a 1st year science student. In all scientific documents where scientific papers are cited, it is standard practice to append a numbered list of the papers referred to, and to add corresponding superscript numbers to any statement that depends on a citation for validity. This is the only way it is possible to check that what the authors claim is supported by the science they claim it for.

The full NIPCC report fails to provide any numbered citations. Although the authors list many scientific papers, at no point can a reader determine to which scientific paper any statements in the report refer to. In other words, it simply isn’t feasible to check anything contained in the report, to see if any claims in it are accurate reflections of what the science says, or to determine whether the scientific papers cited relate specifically, or at all, to anything said in the report. This kind of obfuscation is either very sloppy, or patently devious.

Conclusions

It would be helpful to direct readers to a comprehensive rebuttal of the NIPCC’s report. A Google search for such a document is therefore revealing on two counts.

First, nobody seems to have bothered to debunk the copious inaccuracies, the bad science, the repeated but unsubstantiated claims, the sophistry and what could be seen uncharitably as outright deceit. Considering how tissue-thin is the substance even of the “summary of NIPCC findings”, the damning record of the NIPCC’s previous work, the dubious reputation of its sponsor the Heartland Institute, and the all too clear relationship between Heartland’s agenda and the vested interests of the fossil fuel industry that sponsors such work, it is not surprising that so many qualified people have ignored the report.

The second notable result of a Google search is that virtually all the listings are contrarian; blogs, news outlets and others, many of whom could be described as ‘the usual suspects’. Credible media and the broader scientific community have comprehensively ignored the report.

The NIPCC report is akin to a confidence trick. It is pseudo-science, badly presented, made difficult to assess or check, and depends on ‘blinding the reader with science’ that may look credible until you actually try to verify those claims against the peer-reviewed published literature.

Heartland and the NIPCC know how busy educators are. They know perfectly well that teachers have neither the time, inclination or, in many cases, the necessary background, to determine the validity of the many and various claims contained in a 1000-page report.  They seek to appeal to the credulous, and those who trust Heartland or the NIPCC will have that trust betrayed.

Like others driven by an agenda, Heartland and the NIPCC are now attempting to influence the education of young people, at the behest of the vested interests who pay for Heartland’s services. It is hoped that these notes will help teachers and administrators determine for themselves the quality and purpose of the NIPCC report, and the manipulative agenda of those behind it.

The NAZI propagandization of our public schools.

Sick, sick people.

+1.  Tamarac, blatantly copying and pasting entire articles without a direct reference or link to the original source is shady at best, and a copyright violation that the moderator has to deal with to avoid content liability.

Also, although I don't disagree with the basic content (the NIPCC has long been an industry-funded hack of an organization, this article doesn't cover the half of it), your random reference to NAZIs at the end just cheapens the whole thing.  Unless you're referencing Germany in the mid-20th century or white supremacists today, Nazis really have nothing to do with this, and tossing that word around like rice at a wedding only makes your point look petty and cheap.  I dunno why you insist on doing that.

Cover memo:
http://gpwayne.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/2013-10-25-07-22-274.pdf

"report":
http://www.nipccreport.org/reports/ccr2a/ccr2physicalscience.html

A blogger's take:
http://gpwayne.wordpress.com/2013....ucators

And Nature is not amused overall:
"The Heartland Institute's climate conference reveals the motives of global-warming sceptics.

Subject terms: Climate science Policy Community and Society
It would be easy for scientists to ignore the Heartland Institute's climate conferences. They are curious affairs designed to gather and share contrarian views, in which science is secondary to wild accusations and political propaganda. They are easy to lampoon — delegates at the latest meeting of the Chicago-based institute in Washington DC earlier this month could pick up primers on the libertarian writings of Russian–American novelist Ayn Rand, who developed the philosophical theory of objectivism, and postcards depicting former US vice-president Al Gore as a fire-breathing demon. And they are predictable, with environmentalists often portrayed as the latest incarnation of a persistent communist plot. “Green on the outside, red on the inside,” said one display. “Smash the watermelons!”

So why does Nature this week devote two pages to such absurdities? We now have more than two decades of evidence that closing our eyes will not make the climate sceptics go away. Instead, in the United States at least, they have cemented their propaganda into a broader agenda that pits conservatives of various stripes against almost any form of government regulation. The sceptics like to present the battlefield as science, but, as the News Feature on page 440 makes clear, the fight is, in fact, a violent collision of world views…

Skeptical Science is the highest quality website you will find on Climate Change.

Why do you care about the source Lame? You will just deny it anyway if it doesn't agree with your pre-conceived notions.

I call it a political propaganda machine. Such things existed long before the Nazis were in Germany and will continue for long after. That doesn't make the Heartland Institute a Nazi organization. Apparently you're unaware of Godwin's Law (look it up).  Your argument is akin to saying the entire US military is full of Nazis because they both wear uniforms.

To reside here and nitpick to death things that people say here is a little ridiculous.

I think you take this place a little too seriously.

Besides how can I get the reactionaries spun up without using Nazi once in a while.

All you really do with the name-calling, Tamarac, is propagate the stereotype that all "lefties" are just impetuous little children in grown-up bodies.  But, have it your way I guess.

As for the "only source anyone needs to understand climate science", good grief.  Skeptical Science a decent summary source for laymen, I'll give you that (although RealClimate.org is maintained by scientists and gives more accurate and nuanced summaries of current issues, IMO).  As part of my work, I get the journal articles straight form the peer reviewed journals and read those. It keeps me up to date on the current state of my field and allows me to accurately cite in my own work. And has the tangential side benefit to judge the veracity of claims made by online hacks who just read a blog somewhere about "what the science says!"  So you'll have to excuse me if I roll my eyes a bit when someone points me to "the only source you'll ever need to learn about climate change."

Believe it or not, I was giving constructive criticism, or at least trying. If you ever tire of people treating you like a child, think about it sometime. Take it or leave it, up to you.

No one was asking you to give an APA Reference in a bibliography. Just post a link to your source.  It's common courtesy. Copying and pasting entire articles without citing a source is a violation of the site's Terms of Service, and puts Backpacker in the mildly sticky situation of having to edit or delete posts so as not to violate copyright laws, which you did whether you're aware of it or not. Hardly a major indiscretion, but still annoying. People would like to read the actual source rather than your c&p about what it says, which may or may not be entirely accurate or complete.

Why don't you just care more about what I link or past than what I personally add?

I've been on internet forums for 13 years or so, and there always comes along somebody who criticizes name calling or what have you.

That's fine they can think what they want, but if they are that anal about such things on this venue, they really should project their ideas somewhere else IMO.

My personally type is such that I enjoy some sarcasm from time to time because I take it as humorous, and I expect it back at me.

You won't hear me crying about somebody calling me something.

As far as the term Nazi, political propaganda machines, especially done for political gain above hurting individuals or the country are Nazish In my view. Thats how the entire Third Reich was built.

If you don't agree or don't like that correlation, so be it.

Skeptical science is run by climate scientists. Everything discussed there has been peer-reviewed, in regards to the denialists positions on global warming.

It is actually the best website for lay people to understand global warming and the denialist campaign against it.

It's just a link. An easy fix.

And you'll have to excuse me if I couldn't give a rat's patootie about how long you've been on internet forums. Wow, congrats man.
