Συνέχεια προηγούμενου ποστ.

Έστειλα ένα συμπληρωματικό μήνυμα στο IPCC:

Dear Ms. Foppiano,

thank you for your response. I was referring to news reports in greek media, e.g.

http://www.ekathimerini.com/4dcgi/_w_articles_ell_0_22/05/2008_96874

«Christos Zerefos, president of the National Observatory in Athens, and his colleague, Professor Alcibiades Bais of Thessaloniki University, are the first two Greeks to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, even if they share it with dozens of other scientists. Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which was jointly awarded the 2007 Nobel with Al Gore, decided that the IPPC’s prize should be shared with 45 distinguished scientists who had contributed more than anyone else to the work of the panel.»

Are you saying that the above is false?

Thank you,

Themis Lazaridis

Και η απάντηση:

Dear Mr Lazaridis,

Again, let me clarify that the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. and to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – the organization. Consequently, the following information is not correct: «Christos Zerefos, president of the National Observatory in Athens, and his colleague, Professor Alcibiades Bais of Thessaloniki University, are the first two Greeks to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, even if they share it with dozens of other scientists.»

The sentence should read «Christos Zerefos, president of the National Observatory in Athens, and his colleague, Professor Alcibiades Bais of Thessaloniki University, have received a certificate commemorating their involvement with the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which received the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize along with former Vice President Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr.»

About 2000 personalized copies of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize together with a letter of Dr R.K. Pachauri have been sent worldwide to Coordinating Lead Authors, Lead Authors, Review Editors, Bureau members, staff of Technical Support Units and of the Secretariat, who have contributed substantially to the work of the IPCC of the last 20 years.

However, the above mentioned figure does not reflect all contributors to the IPCC process. We can estimate that approximately 10’000 scientist and officials have contributed to the work of the IPCC over the last two decades. The only figures we can share with you are related to the publication of the 4th Assessment Report:

2500+ Scientific Expert Reviewers
800+ Contributing Authors and 450+ Lead Authors
130+ Countries
6 years work
1 Report

Best regards,

Francesca Foppiano

Προκύπτει πλέον θέμα ηθικής τάξης για τους Ζερεφό και Μπάη που φαίνεται ότι σκόπιμα παραπλάνησαν τα ελληνικά μέσα ενημέρωσης για να λάβουν αναγνώριση που δεν τους αξίζει. Οφείλουν οι ίδιοι να κάνουν διορθωτικές δηλώσεις και τα ΜΜΕ να πάψουν να αναφέρονται σε «Έλληνες νομπελίστες» γιατί οι ξένοι θα μας πάρουν στο ψιλό.
