The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) performs one of the most important jobs in the world.

It surveys the scientific literature and writes a report about what it all means. This report is informally known as the Climate Bible.

The Climate Bible is cited by governments around the world. It is the reason carbon taxes are being introduced, heating bills are rising, and costly new regulations are being enacted. It is why everyone thinks carbon dioxide emissions are dangerous.

Put simply: the entire planet is in a tizzy because of a United Nations report.

What most of us don't know is that, rather than being written by a meticulous, upstanding professional in business attire, the Climate Bible is produced by a slapdash, slovenly teenager who has trouble distinguishing right from wrong.


This book has been written, copy-edited and fact-checked.

It is currently in the process of being formatted as a Kindle e-book and will be for sale at both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk early in October 2011.

Shortly afterward a paperback edition will be available at Amazon.com - which ships internationally.

Australian distribution and a Kobo edition for the Canadian market are currently being explored.


Advance Praise for this Book

Blooming brilliant. Devastating. I read this book with mounting horror at the failure of the journalistic profession to do its job. Donna Laframboise has done a lonely and thorough investigation exposing shocking bias, distortion and deception in an international institution
           Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has for long been a public disgrace awaiting exposure. Donna Laframboise’s accomplished dismemberment of that organization’s pious and often unscientific alarmism, which so many bureaucrats and politicians have fallen for, is a must-read for anyone who has an interest in good public climate policy.
           Professor Robert Carter, author of Climate: the Counter Consensus

Donna Laframboise does what good journalists do. She does not parrot authority, but asks "is that so?" In this book, she shines a hard light on the rotten heart of the IPCC.
           Richard S.J. Tol, Professor of the Economics of Climate Change and
           convening lead author of the IPCC

As much as it took courage for Donna Laframboise to write this remarkable book, it will likely take even more courage for people to read it, for it shatters one of the most passionately-held illusions of the modern age. The IPCC is widely believed to be an authoritative, trustworthy source of scientific information on climate change. Billions of dollars worth of policy decisions have been made around the world based on this assumption. But in this quietly devastating exposé, investigative journalist Donna Laframboise shows that the IPCC's actual operations bear little resemblance to its public reputation; that far from being an open network of top experts it has turned itself into a narrow clique of like-minded activists; and that its reports have come to be more like agenda-driven propaganda than competent, objective scientific assessments. If you have suspected these things yourself, you will want to read this book. If the idea upsets or offends you, you need to read this book. Its implications are far-reaching and the need to begin acting on them is urgent. I congratulate Donna Laframboise for her outstanding investigation of this complex issue and I recommend this book highly.
           Ross McKitrick, Professor of Economics, University of Guelph

Donna Laframboise has written an excellent book describing major problems with the IPCC. Written in clear and compelling language, she makes the case for major reform at that institution with example after example. Although some of these examples are continuations of her investigative work found on her highly readable weblog, much of the material is new - and all of it is fascinating. This will sit on my bookshelf right next to Andrew Montford's The Hockey Stick Illusion, another example of the value provided by those willing and able to challenge the climate change consensus.
