    I generally don't agree with Greenpeace, but even they recognize what a fraud the IPCC has become, and how it undermines the credibility of the entire environmentalist movement.

    If one is intelligent enough to follow what is really happening in climate science, you would have read the Copenhagen Diagnosis.

    The Copenhagen Diagnosis

    The IPCC report was far too conservative. All of the parameters in which it made predictions, it has been wrong. The warming has proceeded far faster than the estimates.

    The melting of the arctic ice is right off the chart in the worst possible way.

    The melting of the permafrost, and the resultant emissions are far greater than was predicted.

    The Arctic Ocean Clathrates have started outgassing, and that was not supposed to happen until the end of this century, maybe even later than that.

    The sea level rise is on the upper edge of the probability cone, and maybe off it by now.

    The East Anarctic was supposed to gain a bit of ice because of increased precipitation. They have the increased precipitation, but the melt exceeds estimates to the point that the East Antarctic is also losing ice by the giga-ton.

    And 2010 looks to be one of the hottest on record, maybe the hottest, until 2011.
