Nuclear enthusiast questions authorship of IPCC renewables report.
Sven Teske of Greenpeace, an acknowledged renewables expert, was a lead author on the IPCC Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN). 120 experts worked on the report. Mark Lynas in the Independent: “It is stretching credibility for the IPCC to suggest that a richer world with two billion more people will use less energy in 2050. Campaigners should not be employed as lead authors in IPCC reports.” Joe Romm later later eviscerates Lynas’s arguments on ClimateProgress.com, and the Lynas’s attack on the IPCC’s press release is countered on carbonbrief.org.
