    Default IPCC meet today

    I heard on the radio that the IPCC are meeting in plenary session in Korea today. On the agenda is the future of the chairman Dr Pachauri, should he stay or should he go ?

    This was the fellow remember, who accused glaciologists of 'voodoo science' when they queried the assertion that the Himalayan glaciers would all be gone 25 years from now. Then he had to back track and admit that they were right after all. The claim had been lifted from a mountaineering magazine. and even there, the author/climber had made a typo, he meant 2350, not 2035.
    Pachauri has also come a cropper with the UK charities commission. His turnover suddenly plunged below the threshold where accounts have to filed, even though his business was booming. This has now been corrected, although it leaves the stink of corruption.

    If he stays, the IPCC will be saddled with a politicised biased activist as chairman. great news for agw sceptics.

    If he goes, India will leave the IPCC possibly triggering an exodus. great news for agw sceptics.

    And another thing. The defence against the glacier error was that it was just a few paragraphs in a 3000 page report.

    but if you made a similar scale change to the DNA of , say, phil jones, he would be a donkey not a human

    And Another thing.
    Pachauri was talking about rising sea levels and mentioned the fact that Holland is 50% below sea level.

    The Dutch were not amused and corrected him, it's 25%.

    He carries on with the 50% though.

    If these are the top people in the world, my @rse is a cream bun

    Something else as well.

    Just because I am difficult to convince, because I am wary of politico-speak and manipulative language, doe not justify calling me a 'holocaust denier'
