A new SPPI paper illustrates serious flaws in the IPCC assessment process using the "GlacierGate" example, including plagiarism from non-peer reviewed sources with false attribution to different sources, and authors who "are allowed to cite whatever sources they wish and write whatever they wish within a wide scope, safe in the knowledge that their work will not be checked, save by reviewers whose comments they can ignore with impunity."
This little error still remains to be corrected, strangely no mainstream press coverage:ReplyDelete
The missing entry is noted by Dr. Basnayake in FOD Expert Review Comments. He states:
“”Table 10.2″ under Sri Lanka -change in temperature “minimum and maximum temperatures have been increasing during tthe last centurary. 0.016 C increase per year during 1961-90 period over the entire country. 2.0 C increase per century over the central highlands.” under the references “Basnayake, B.R.S.B. et al 2002″”
. Note he said 2.0 C per century.
Dr. Basnayake’s comments are accepted by the lead authors and is then included in the Second Order Draft (SOD) as
“0.016°C increase per year between 1961-90over entire country, 2°C increase per year in central highlands”
Note they changed century to year, and left out the reference as well.
