Anyone who is informed, has researched or even looked at their Hydro Bill and KNOWS something just ain’t right with our energy programs can look no further than the idiots behind the so-called “Green Energy Fraud” being run by fake presenters and developers and politicians who pile lie upon lie to make their case!
Here is a prime example of how bad this has become!
A press release issued this week falsely describes economist Woodrow Clark as a Nobel Peace Prize winner.
Six weeks from now, the All-Energy 2014 trade show will be held here in Canada. Organizers have issued a press release titled Nobel Peace Prize winner is Keynote speaker for…Conference in Toronto.
Yesterday, that press release was distributed via the Ontario Sustainable Energy Association (OSEA) e-mail list. It is also reproduced and/or mentioned
- on the OSEA website
- at ClimateWire.ca
- on the EcoStrategy Twitter feed
- on the Alternative Energy Magazine website
- on the Canadian Corporate Responsibility website
- on the Green Building Advisor website
- and on the Sector Publishing Intelligence website
The keynote speaker in question is Dr. Woodrow (Woody) W. Clark II. Since he is not a Nobel Peace Prize winner, large numbers of people have been profoundly misled by the above press release.
Clark is an economist and founder of the consulting firm Clark Strategic Partners. Its website describes him both as a “scientist” and as a “long-time advocate for the environment and renewable energy.” It prominently displays a certificate manufactured by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Signed by two IPCC officials, that certificate merely says Clark contributed to the IPCC’s activities. It was not issued by the Nobel committee. It does not say he won a Peace Prize.
The IPCC itself has issued a formal statement declaring that it is “incorrect to refer to any IPCC official, or scientist who worked on IPCC reports, as a Nobel laureate or Nobel Prize winner.”
Yet over at LinkedIn, under the Honors and Awards heading, Clark’s profile continues to list “Nobel Peace Prize (shared with other members of the UN IPCC).”
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. A 2009 interview, published simultaneously at SustainaBlog.org and Inside Climate News, thrice describes Clark as a Nobel Prize winner – without mentioning the fact that a Peace Prize is being discussed rather than a prestigious science Nobel.
The Silicon Valley Business Journal sponsored a 2009 power breakfast in which “Nobel Peace Prize recipient” Clark was the main attraction.
