Did we say more secrecy? We meant more openness!

So there you have it. We can expect more IPCC openness any day now… :)

    “was not the IPCC’s intention”… and “likely a drafting error.” Of course. Be interesting to record the timeline of this correction, assuming it will ever happen.

  2. meltemian says:

    The phrase “don’t hold your breath” comes to mind.

  3. Stephen Richards says:

    it’s the “at the next available opportunity” that is the cruncher. There won’t be one.

    Oh how they wiggle and squirm to try and hide the truth. Luckily, there are plenty of hawk-eyed people watching the IPCC’s every move, and honest Bloggers, like Tallbloke, to spread the word.

    I’ve a feeling that unless the next IPCC report and Summary for Policy Makers makes an honest attempt to tell the truth about climate it, and the organisation, will be buried under a very large pile of brown odure, which won’t be smelling of roses, me thinks.

    Tenuc, as was noted by you and Peter Berenyi in response to your comments the other day, the Brits are a stoical bunch who are slow to anger. I wonder how much more of this bullshit they’ll put up with before the news items about freezing pensioners and wasted billions push them over the edge into civil disorder.

  6. archonix says:

    The thing about being slow to anger is that it lets you build up a real head of steam. We don’t do revolutions very often but we are very thorough once we get started.

    Per the signs of disorder, I think we’re seeing the first tiny inklings. A few writers have noted that people are becoming impatient in their dealings with the state and other officious organisations. Something is coming to a head.

    Please do not forget the next June 2012 Earth Rio de Janeiro Summit. (Chances are that attendants will witness snow falling on Copacabana beach -remember this-)

    @TB & Arconix

    The unrest is already happening in Southern Ireland, with civil disobedience starting to occur…

    Half of Ireland refuses to pay property tax

    If this sort of resistance fails to change politicians minds, next step is the pitch-forks.
