Climate Change Science Compendium 2009

One thought on “Climate Change Science Compendium 2009”

  1. Readers are referred to two criticisms of the UNEP report the subject of this post:

    Steve McIntyre has made the apparently valid criticism that one of the graphs in the report appears to be sourced from Wikipedia: http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=7138

    Harold Amber has also suggested that the author of the graph in question is not a climate scientist: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/09/27/more-on-the-hanno-wikipedia-graph-in-the-un-climate-report/

    The first criticism appears to be valid as a full citation of the source of the graph is not included in the UNEP report’s reference list.

    If these criticisms are valid then the UNEP should issue a corrigendum correcting the error.

    It is often said that science is self-correcting and this is one example of it. Noting this apparent error, the UNEP report remains a useful compilation of the most recent climate science.
