Portrait of Donna Laframboise, 2011

Donna Laframboise is a Canadian feminist,[1] journalist, writer, and photographer. She holds a degree in women's studies, and her writing has often supported organizations such as fathers' rights groups.[2] She is the author of The Princess at the Window: A New Gender Morality (1997), a book critical of many aspects of contemporary feminism; and of The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World's Top Climate Expert (2011), a book about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Climatologist Judith Curry wrote that Laframboise's book "makes a clear and compelling case regarding problems with the IPCC."[3]

In 2010, Laframboise organized a citizen audit of the IPCC AR4 report, to determine how many of the report's sources were peer-reviewed. The audit found that 21 of the report's 44 chapters used less than 60% peer-reviewed sources.[4][5] She maintains noconsensus.org, a website that argues that there is no scientific consensus on global warming.[4][6]

From 1993 to 2001, Laframbroise served on the board of directors of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.[1] She has written articles and editorials for Canada's National Post, Globe & Mail, Toronto Star, and others.[1]
