Billions of dollars are being spent in the study of what used to be called Global Warming. The UN is calling for a climate tax on “rich” nations to pay “poor” nations for the “impact” of Global Warming, now called climate change.
So it should come as no surprise that a committee made up of “poor” nations will find that climate change is real and that money needs to change hands; a classic example of conflict of interest.
Case in point: an IPCC report in 2007 has been shown to contain false information on the probability of the Himalayan glaciers melting by the year 2035. Unfortunately, the claim was not one of science but conjecture by 1 person. Yet the claim made it into the IPCC report. But the head of the panel who produced the report, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, has said publicly that there may be some other problems with the report, although he refuses to tell exactly what those issues are.
So what of it? Some would dismiss this as just a side show or a small issue being whipped up by the “denier industry”. Implying that there is a corporate conspiracy to ignore and deny climate change, while at the same time not realizing that there is a climate change industry that would not be viable without the threat of global warming.
The bottom line however is that the conflict of interest in the UN committee leads to misleading information, and given the large amounts of money at stake, could easily be considered fraud.
