From the move over Mann department (on a tip from a WUWT reader)
Richard A. Houghton, Ph.D. has made a blatantly false claim on his Woods Hole Research Center webpage that:
“Along with other lead authors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports, Dr. Houghton was a recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.”
In a statement of 29 October 2012 the IPCC clarified that the “prize was awarded to the IPCC as an organisation, and not to any individual involved with the IPCC. Thus it is incorrect to refer to any IPCC official, or scientist who worked on IPCC reports, as a Nobel laureate or Nobel Prize winner. It would be correct to describe a scientist who was involved with AR4 or earlier IPCC reports in this way: ‘X contributed to the reports of the IPCC, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.'” It stated that it had not sent the certificates to “contributing authors, expert reviewers and focal points.
Even Wiki, that great bastion of information, states the same information.
Dr. Duffy, President of Woods Hole Research Center, has been contacted on the false claim and we await a correction to Dr. Houghton’s webpage along with a public retraction and apology for promoting false credentials.
In 2014, the U.S. Government (taxpayers) gave $4,984,373 that represented 55.5% of Woods Hole’s research money. It is not known how much money was raised based upon Dr. Houghton’s “Nobel Prize credentials”.
