“NIPCC vs. IPCC”
S. Fred Singer, an atmospheric and space physicist, is founder and president of the Science and Environmental Policy Project. He is also distinguished research professor at G
able Global Warming – Every 1,500 Years (Rowman & Littlefield, 2007). Singer’s previous books include The Greenhouse Debate Continued: An Analysis and Critique of the IPCC Climate Assessment (ICS Press, 1992), Climate Policy – From Rio to Kyoto (Hoover Institution, 2000), and Hot Talk Cold Science – Global Warming’s Unfinished Debate (Independent Institute, 1997, 1999). Singer has been a pioneer in many ways. He participated in the first experiments using high-altitude research rockets, measuring the energy spectrum of primary cosmic rays and the distribution of stratospheric ozone; published the first studies on subatomic particles trapped in the Earth’s magnetic field; and was the first to make the correct calculations for using atomic clocks in orbit. He has designed satellites and instrumentation for remote sensing of the atmosphere and received a White House Presidential Commendation for this work. Singer has held a wide range of science positions with the U.S. government, including first director of the National Weather Satellite Service. He is editor of Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate: The Summary for Policymakers of the Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, to be released at this conference.
