Response to G&M - Pour more cold water on the IPCC
Response to Globe and Mail's Pour more cold water on the IPCC - http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/editorials/pour-more-cold-water-on-the-ipcc/article1690681/
No matter how bullet proof the IPCC becomes it will not stop people who deny global warming from picking it apart. They don't like what it has to say. Period. But it constitutes the findings of more than 2500 scientists from around the world. And these scientists and those who want to prevent runaway global warming are up against multi-billion dollar industries, such as fossil fuel, eager to brake any action to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. This means spending a lot of money on PR firms and think tanks to find ways to constantly question the science. The Koch Industries are big spenders in this area - http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2010/08/30/100830fa_fact_mayer
Keep in mind that there were a few mistakes in the latest IPCC report in a 3000 page document, and those mistakes were quickly amended when they were discovered. If the report was riddled with mistakes, then I'd seriously question it. But just a few? I'd love not to believe in global warming too, but the evidence that it is happening is too compelling.
