New history of global warming science reveals that discovery of man-made influence was a political demand.

 

London, 23 November 2017. A new book on the origins of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the global warming movement reveals that the 1995 discovery of ‘discernible’ evidence for a man-made influence on climate was a response to demands of politicians keen to regulate energy usage.

It was only when the IPCC was threatened with alienation from the climate treaty process that it suddenly concluded “a discernible human influence on global climate”.

Based on interviews with many of the key participants, author Bernie Lewin shows how climate science never was a driver of the policy movement and then how in 1995 policy demands began to drive the science.

Searching for the Catastrophe Signal: The Origins of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation.
