In a bio description for an upcoming talk to a UK skeptics society meeting, (sent to us by a very astute DeSmog reader) Singer has this to say about himself:
As a reviewer of IPCC reports, he [Singer] shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.”
Our sources tell us that the bio description was sent to the Skeptics Society by Singer himself.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and Al Gore were presented the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their work on climate change issues, and as such they were bestowed the great honor of joining the ranks of the small few in the world who can rightly call themselves “Nobel Laureates.”
I too am an IPCC reviewer – I received advance copies of the working reports and spent about 10 hours looking over the reports and offering my advice from a communications point of view. I wouldn’t even think about propping up myself to league of Al Gore or the IPCC scientists who have dedicated their lives to the issue of climate change.
I have more respect for science than that.
And, after talking to one of the IPCC scientists who can rightly call himself a Nobel Laureate, I know that in order to claim to be a Nobel prize winner, you receive documentation designating you as such.
So, Fred, please send along your documentation to prove me wrong. By the way it looks like this. I have also taken the liberty of letting the Nobel Foundation know about this, I’m sure they’ll be interested.
