IPCC REPORT CHALLENGED


Item #d92jun103

Two foundation-supported groups in the U.S. have independently published criticisms of the climate change assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. (See Reports/Gen. Interest, this GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST issue--June 1992.) The George C. Marshall Institute, which provides scientific and technical advice on matters that impact public policy, published a controversial report on climate change in 1989. Its latest report finds that available data do not support predictions of greenhouse warming or the notion that human activity has already caused warming. Comments on the report from other scientists are given in Sci. News (p. 317, May 9, 1992), and Global Environ. Change Rep. (pp. 6-7, May 8).

The Science and Environmental Policy Project has published a detailed review of the IPCC scientific assessment and updates, prompted by the results of a survey last year which concluded that the summary of the 1990 assessment was not supported by statements in the assessment itself, nor did it fully represent the opinions of the contributing scientists. (See Survey of Scientists' Views..., GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DIGEST, Reports/Gen. Interest, Jan. 1992.)
