International Climate Science Coalition ‘Consensus’ in Climate Science: An Unsubstantiated Urban Myth

Download PowerPoint

Terry Dunleavy is executive vice-chairman of the International Climate Science Coalition and honorary executive director of the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition. A leader in New Zealand’s burgeoning wine industry, he was inaugural CEO of the Wine Institute of New Zealand and for the past 12 years has been editor of the industry’s official journal, New Zealand WineGrower. At a wine conference in early 2006, hearing a speaker describe how vineyard locations could change through global warming, he thought he should learn more. He launched the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition, becoming its honorary executive director, and soon realized the need for an international organization to coordinate activity to challenge the claims of the IPCC. The International Climate Science Coalition is headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, and Dunleavy serves as executive vice chairman. He is particularly troubled by the wrongful description of CO2 as a pollutant rather than as a natural gas essential to human and vegetative life, and the misleading interpretations given to untested hypothetical scenarios posed in IPCC reports. Still active at 80 years old, Dunleavy was appointed by Queen Elizabeth II in 1990 as a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) and is a justice of the peace in New Zealand.
