The Climate Revolutionary & The World Bank

HareYou may have heard Greenies all citing a “recent World Bank Report” lately? (See )

Well, Bjørn Lomborg (amongst all his usual trite pap in the article) points out here that Bill Hare, one of the original UN IPCC revolutionaries, was behind it.

A Tale of Two Treaties

“…The World Bank, in a disappointing departure from its usual, careful reports, put out the alarmist tract Turn Down the Heat, coauthored by William Hare, a longtime climate policy director for Greenpeace. At its launch, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim claimed, “We will never end poverty if we don’t tackle climate change.”

Donna Laframboise, the expert who exposed the UN IPCC, knows all about Hare…

Peer into the Heart of the IPCC, Find Greenpeace

” …But the cozy relationship doesn’t end there. Bill Hare has been a Greenpeace spokesperson since 1992. By 2000 he was climate policy director for Greenpeace International. According to various Greenpeace blog posts he is “a legend” in that organization, served as its chief climate negotiator in 2007, and remains a chief policy advisor. Yet none of this has prevented him from being nominated – and chosen – to fill senior IPCC roles.   In 2000 policy director Hare served as an expert reviewer for an influential IPCC emissions scenarios document. When the 2007 edition of the climate bible was released, we learned that he’d served as a lead author, that he’d been an expert reviewer for 2 out of 3 sections of the report (see here and here), and that he was one of a select group of only 40 people who comprised the “core writing team” for the important Synthesis Report.   Hare has once again been appointed a lead author for the upcoming version of the climate bible, expected to be released in 2013 (see p. 8 of this 27-page PDF).   It’s worth noting that the IPCC is less-than-candid about his Greenpeace ties. The 2007 climate bible says he’s affiliated with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany. When the IPCC announced, last June, the list of authors for the version of the climate bible currently in progress the Potsdam Institute was once again used as cover. Since Hare is, in fact, a visiting researcher at the institute the IPCC hasn’t lied… “

Someone should tell Hare and Richard Klein that the revolution has failed, there will be no green, socialist, new world order. The third world didn’t buy it.

“Climate Revolutionary”? Yes, to advocate the urgent tearing out of an intrinsic energy infrastructure without a demonstrated viable alternative to replace it with IS revolutionary by any definition.



  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it
