i don't know if there is a concerted attack, but rajendra pachauri and IPCC appear increasingly embattled based on allegations of financial impropriety and business conflicts of interest. maybe all this will make cap-and-trade disappear, and the more sensible straight carbon tax come back into contention.
i still believe there is global warming and climate change, just based on the amount of carbon being dumped into the air, and also observed changes in flora and weather patterns. but the series of scandals (starting with the leaked emails from britain) are making me wonder if there is a gigantic scam going on as well, to enrich the likes of goldman sachs and others involved in cap-and-trade.
