None [of the Team] have any links to the Climatic Research Unit, or the United Nations’ Independent Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Boulton CV Chinese link
9. CONTRIBUTIONS TO SCIENCE & RESEARCH POLICY
As contributor to G8 Preparatory Groups and Intergovernmental Panels on climate change
And oh yes, another thing. Remember that other fib by the Inquiry that “None have any links to the Climatic Research Unit… ” At the Inquiry press conference, Boulton partially fessed up:
I should also add something that ought to be in my CV but is not – that I was appointed to a full-time post in the new school of environmental science at UEA at 1968 and worked there until 1980 which if you calculate correctly is 30 years ago.
Except his CV says that he worked at UEA until 1986 (as was noted in his Debretts bio):
1968-86: School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia. Lecturer:1968-76, Reader:1976-86 (half-time, 1982-86)
Oh and another thing. Boulton also said at the press conference:
I should stress that I am not involved in recent and the issues of recent and current climate nor am I part of that community.
But heres what his CV said:
His research is in the field of climatic and environmental change and energy, and is an advisor to the UK Government and European Commission on climate change. He leads the Global Change Research Group in the University of Edinburgh, the largest major research group in the University’s School of Geosciences.
ht reader oneuniverse who spotted Boultons CV.
Update (Feb 17 8 am): The FAQ at the Inquiry website now says:
Some of the blogs are saying that Professor Geoffrey Boulton is connected to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – is this true?
No, it is not true. Professor Boulton has had no formal contact with the IPCC. He has not been a member of the Panel or made any submissions to it.
Memo to Muir Russell: all I did in this post was quote Boulton’s CV. Don’t blame the blogs – You say that Boulton has not been “a member of the Panel or made any submissions to it”. Well, why did his 2007 CV say that he was a “contributor to G8 Preparatory Groups and Intergovernmental Panels on climate change”?
