Climate Insider: U.N. Misled the Public on Scientific Consensus (National Review, 06.15.10)

Lawrence Solomon of Canada’s National Post reports a blockbuster:
The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change misled the press and public into believing that thousands of scientists backed its claims on manmade global warming, according to Mike Hulme, Professor of Climate Change at the University of East Anglia and the founding Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. The actual number of scientists who backed that claim was “only a few dozen.”
Diane Katz at the Fraser Institute says “Hulme’s revelation belies the claims of IPCC apologists who have insisted that misrepresentations in the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report were minor mistakes that have no bearing on the unshakable consensus of experts on anthropogenic global warming.”
More evidence that the Senate just granted the EPA the authority to fight a fictional dragon.
