Judy Curry has an interesting post on a a proposed bill to kill US funding for the IPCC, which amounts to $12.5 million a year. Curry’s analysis is interesting, and she suggests that if the US bail, then other countries may follow suit and the IPCC may lose its status on the world climate change scene. This has been advocated before, and many claims of fraud, incompetence and conflict of interests weigh in on the debate.
If this happens, another question would be posed for the USCCB, which relies quite heavily on the IPCC for its science, as to which scientific institution or consensus group, they should rely on. Any ideas?
