The Incestuous Nature of the IPCC Reports

• https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Dr. Tim Ball

Craig Idso examines a comparison between the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Non-Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) Reports. (Disclosure: I contributed material to the NIPCC Report). Idso's article is a review and analysis of an article with the same title in Scientometrics, Jankó et al. (2017). Idso wrote, Another interesting finding is seen in their examination of who each organization was citing. In-text analysis of the IPCC's AR5 report revealed that 19 out of the 20 most frequently cited authors in that report were directly involved in the compilation of it. And though the remaining person, J. Hansen, was not officially involved in producing AR5, he participated in the production of at least one prior IPCC report (Third Assessment) as a Contributing Author. Similar analysis of the AR4 report revealed that 14 out of the 16 most frequently cited IPCC authors were involved with the writing of that report.
