That headline, from an excellent online story at Foreign Policy's website, is obviously not one you will see at Climate Depot. And that's a shame, because the writer, Stephan Faris, makes some very important points, while also not downplaying the recent IPCC mistakes and bad behavior of climate scientists. For example, he writes:

The IPCC's critics do well to examine the panel's claims carefully. Science and policy are both served when mistakes are uncovered (the IPCC has since fended off similar accusations over its predictions about the fate of the Amazon). And though there's no doubt that many critiques are motivated more by ideology than truth-seeking, that doesn't excuse researchers who allow their passions to spill into their findings.

Isn't that a passage ripe for Climate Depot readers? Or this one:

The world has no shortage of advocates. What it needs is a dispassionate source.

So Marc, I dare you. Step off message for just a minute and link to this FP story.
