The Summary for Policymakers was written in collaboration with the lead authors and approved by them. Because it is aimed at a larger popular audience than the book, it adds a discussion of the scientific method and the precautionary principle, a brief summary and critical analysis of each of the IPCC’s main lines of argument, and a brief set of recommendations for policymakers.
We also recommend you review the separate Executive Summary.
CCR II: Physical Science is an independent, comprehensive, and authoritative report on the current state of climate science. It is the fourth in a series of scholarly reports produced by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), an international network of climate scientists sponsored by three nonprofit organizations:
- Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change,
- Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP), and
- The Heartland Institute.
Whereas the reports of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warn of a dangerous human effect on climate, NIPCC concludes the human effect is likely to be small relative to natural variability, and whatever small warming is likely to occur will produce benefits as well as costs.
CCR-II consists of three parts:
- a Summary for Policy Makers (SPM),
- part one titled Physical Science, and
- part two titled Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerabilities.
The SPM and Part One were released on September 17-18, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois USA. Additional release events took place the following weeks in Washington, DC, New York, Florida, St. Louis, England, Germany, Holland, and California. Read More
by Dr. Harrison H. Schmitt, Apollo 17
“Americans should think long and hard about their children’s future before giving up liberties and incomes to politicians in Washington and at the United Nations in the name of “doing something” about climate change. The scientific rationale behind this proposed massive intrusion into American life requires more than a “consensus” of like-minded climate analysts and bureaucrats. It needs to be right. — HHS.
The Foreword was written by Professor Bob Carter, an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand. He is a paleontologist, stratigrapher, marine geologist and an environmental scientist. Currently Chief Science Advisor to the International Climate Science Coalition, Carter notes
“This book is written by a supremely well informed, well qualified and thoughtful scientist, and formerly active senior politician. Jack Schmitt has identified accurately the need for corrective action now, and careful future vigilance, against the undue influence that is being exerted on our political systems by post-modern modes of scientific thinking and policy formulation.” ,
and concludes by saying:
“Thank you, Jack Schmitt, for providing us with the wise scientific guidance and political leadership that is today so sadly lacking in Washington and other western national capitals.”
