D'oh!#* Nobel Prize winning UN Climate Report used unverified data from lobby group

Andrew Bolt: "Yet more evidence that the IPCC cooked the books. Here’s its 2007 claim that global warming could devastate African agriculture:

In other [African] countries, additional risks that could be exacerbated by climate change include

greater erosion, deficiencies in yields from rain-fed agriculture of up to 50% during the 2000-2020 period,

and reductions in crop growth period…

In fact, that claim comes from a non-peer-reviewed and non-scientific paper which looked at just three African countries, and was produced

  • by a sustainable development lobby group. How did this end up as IPCC gospel?
Call in the auditors. Now."
