the current debate is nuts! even if there are 100's of errors in the IPCC reports, that is no reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater: there is little question that there is climate change. by focusing on climategate, glaciergate, amazongate, watervaporgate (this is a good one. i think the answer is called 'rain') and other crap, they are trying to divert attention away from the main issue, which is that all this burning of oil and coal is affecting the environment.
for a moment, let us leave aside the substantive issues of whether the IPCC lied or whatever.
isn't it strange that all the noise about rajendra pachauri's malfeasanance and calls for his head, and a breathless report about how he -- gasp! -- rode in a car! (daily mail, UK), are all coming from the limeys?
my conclusion: the hans have hired the limeys to discredit IPCC, and thus the entire idea of global warming.
if they succeed, then the chinese (and the yanks) don't have to do anything to cut down on greenhouse gas emission.
the burden of global warming (rising seas, agricultural losses) will fall disproportionately on india and other innocent bystanders.
bloody fiendish, i tell you.
