This article gives an excellent insight into the workings of the IPCC. How much longer will the media and the politicians take it seriously? The following quote from the article neatly sums up the situation, "So it doesn’t matter if total waffle is produced by unheard of academics, on the instruction of Western NGOs and advocacy organisations… The next IPCC report will produce politically correct science, which must surely be nearly as good as ‘truth’. So will this let Greenpeace smuggle its agenda into AR5, on the basis of ‘positive discrimination’? We’ll have to wait and see."
