""The Nobel prize was for peace not science ... government employees
will use it to negotiate changes and a redistribution of resources. It
is not a scientific analysis of climate change," said Anton Imeson, a
former IPCC lead author from the Netherlands. "For the media, the IPCC
assessments have become an icon for something they are not. To make
sure that it does not happen again, the IPCC should change its name
and become part of something else. The IPCC should have never allowed
itself to be branded as a scientific organisation. It provides a
review of published scientific papers but none of this is much
controlled by independent scientists.""

File this under advocacy is not science. And BTW, redistribute your
own D*mn resources.
