IPCC references at least 29 news articles in AR4

11 Feb


Several news articles have already been pointed out as citations in the IPCC’s AR4, but there are many that haven’t been found. I have found 29, though I am sure there are probably some I missed. This doesn’t include press releases, White House briefings, product catalogs, and other various non-peer-reviewed references (maybe another post), but simply news articles. Some are from UN bodies, like the FAO, but most are magazines or newspapers, including but certainly not limited to the following: Rocky Mountain News, New York Times, The Seattle Times, Better Roads, Business Week, Associated Press, Environment News Service, Climbing News, BTO News (birdwatching), Foreign Affairs, The Economist, and the Asia Times. I’d give you the location of each but that would take forever and I’m sure you are smart enough to find it with Google. Here’s the list:

    Okay, we’ve had lists of news references

    We’ve had lists of advocate group references – greenpeace and WWF

    Has anybody done any research on references taken from other non-peer-reviewed NGO sources (many of which are advocacy groups too), Institute for Sustainable Development This, or Think Tank for Eco-Policy That? It’s just that I’ve seen some passing mentioning that there might be references in the IPCC reports of this nature.

    Another climate idiot for your list of personalities:
    Bill Nye ‘The Science Guy’: Denying Climate Change ‘Unpatriotic,’ ‘Inappropriate’
    Educator-turned global warming alarmist claims older people struggle with manmade warming theory and cites IPCC Nobel Prize as proof of phenomenon.

    I’m sorry for the large evaluation, however I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, along with the superb evaluations another people have written, will help you determine if it’s the solution you’re looking for.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
