“If Canada delayed CO2 reduction decisions by, say, a year, while the science was more closely examined, what would be the impact on global climate?

“Essentially none.”

CEI argues IPCC science without any scientists

The Competitive Enterprise Institute, who not even the likes of ExxonMobil want to be associated with anymore, has issued a media advisory today offering up their in-house staff as global warming “experts” available for comment on the upcoming release by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

With the IPCC report coming from scientists, you would think the CEI would be offering up scientists as global warming “experts.

Think again.

Here's some background information on each of their so-called “experts.”

Chirac's Patience Taxed by US Climate Intransigence

French President Jacques Chirac warned that if the US did not sign the agreements, a carbon tax across Europe on imports from nations that have not signed the Kyoto treaty could be imposed to try to force compliance. He demanded that the United States sign both the Kyoto Protocol and a future agreement that will take effect when the Kyoto accord runs out in 2012.

DeSmog Leaks Advance Copy of Think Tank's IPCC Attack

UPDATED: with details of the Fraser Institute's planned press conference

A Canadian think tank’s “independent” analysis of the IPCC Summary for Policymakers is based on out-of-date information and is specifically misleading about the nature of the scientific summary that it presumes to criticize, President James Hoggan said Wednesday.

The Fraser Institute will release their report in London on Feb.5. Here are the details for our UK friends who might be interested in attending:

Date: February 5, 2007
Time: 10am (London time)
Location: The Atrium Restaurant (across from the Houses of Parliament), Four Millbank, Westminster

You can find a copy of the leaked document and a briefing note on the Fraser Institute here.

UPDATE: I've just uploaded a new version of the briefing note, without hyperlinks for those who want to print off a copy. Titled “print version.” (KG)

UPDATE: The Fraser Institute issued a second media advisory yesterday. H/T to Buckdog .
