The Indian "environment minister" said this . . .
"There is a fine line between climate science and climate evangelism. I am for climate science. I think people misused [the] IPCC report, [the] IPCC doesn't do the original research which is one of the weaknesses . . . they just take published literature and then they derive assessments, so we had goof-ups on Amazon forest, glaciers, snow peaks."
That India would pull out of the IPCC is a real blow to its chairman, Dr. R.K. Pachauri, because he's Indian.
But really now, how can any government really stand behind the IPCC or what it should be called, the IPCL - the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Lies - after the truth has been exposed. (Recent examples here, here, and here.)
With apologies to Kipling . . . Science is science. And politics is politics. Never the twain shall meet.
