Vijay Jayaraj, Research associate, Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation: Despite its many scientific and structural failings, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the world’s most influential, though not the most credible, source of policy on climate change. For over two decades, this has enabled it to persuade governments around the world to implement global climate policies that are harmful to nearly everyone in the developing world. The developing world requires massive amounts of reliable, affordable energy, especially electricity, for power-hungry industries and cities. Without it economic engines will stall causing a large-scale disruption of growth and development, trapping billions in poverty and pushing hundreds of millions back into it.
