It is like watching the Berlin Wall being torn down, concrete slab by concrete slab

That's the IPCC and climate change alarmism that is.

It is like watching the Berlin Wall being torn down, concrete slab by concrete slab, brick by brick, with cracks appearing and widening daily on every face - political, economic, and scientific. Likewise, the bloggers have been swift to cover the crumbling edifice with colourful graffiti, sometimes bitter, at others caustic and witty…

And, as ever, capitalism has read the runes, with carbon-trading posts quietly being shed, ‘Green’ jobs sidelined, and even big insurance companies starting to hedge their own bets against the future of the Global Warming Grand Narrative. These rats are leaving the sinking ship far faster than any politician, many of whom are going to be abandoned, left, still clinging to the masts, as the Good Ship ‘Global Warming’ founders on titanic icebergs in the raging oceans of doubt and delusion.

The tipping point has been reached and the dam wall has broken. (Yes, yes, I know that's probably a mixed metaphor, but I don't care. Alright?)

For years now sceptics have pointed out what should have been a central features of the debate, that is, the influence of water vapour on global temperatures, and the fact that the influence of CO2 had been exaggerated.

As you can see from following the two links above, further confirmation of these points has come recently.

And dear oh dear, Kevin Rudd must feeling like a total dick right about now!
PM KEVIN RUDD: Well, I just look at what the scientists say. There’s a group of scientists called the International Panel on Climate Change - 4000 of them. Guys in white coats who run around and don’t have a sense of humour. They just measure things…

I stand by what the International Panel of Climate Change scientists have had to say.

He might, but you will find it hard to find anybody else who does now.

The IPCC has taken one hit after another and really, you'd have to say that its credibility has been destroyed.

Following on from Climategate we've had Glaciergate and Amazongate follow in quick succession.

Amazongate has basically been laughable in exposing the fact that the IPCC, contrary to its claims, has not just used the best research published only in the peer-reviewed journals.

Now we know that unscientific reports produced by Greenpeace and the WWF were incorporated into the last assessment report. The Amazon one was by somebody describing himself as a 'policy analyst,' with the other author a freelance journalist!

But wait, there's more! Now one of the 'scientific' sources quoted by the IPCC was an article in Climber magazine.

Glaciergate started out as equally ridiculous, with fun being had by all as the IPCC had to admit that its claim that the Himalayan glaciers would be gone by 2035 was based on nothing more than an offhandedly speculative comment by an obscure glaciologist quoted in New Scientist in the 1990s and then picked up by, yes, you guessed it, the WWF.

From there it found its way into the Fourth Assessment Report.

Then however, it got worse and worse.

Turns out that obscure glaciologist then got employed by IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri's TERI company and that TERI has picked up many hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants based upon the false claim.

Then, we find out that the IPCC knew the claim was false to begin with, but used it because it suited the political message it wanted to send.

Finally, Pachauri has been caught out as a liar when he said that the first he'd heard about it all was only just recently when the story broke in the media. The truth is he knew about it several months prior to the Copenhagen summit, but kept quiet about it.

From the same source we see that patience has worn out in India.

According to The Guardian, V K Raina, formerly deputy director general of the Geological Survey of India, has joined calls for Pachauri's resignation.

The Guardian cites India's Economic Times from over a week ago, which criticised the IPCC for damaging its own credibility, noting that "it would now seem that Mr Pachauri's steadfast unwillingness to consider an alternate position could well have given climate sceptics a stronger footing.

"But today, the Deccan Herald also weighs in, declaring: "The [glacier] incident reflects poorly on the professionalism and scientific rigour of the IPCC and has done damage to its credibility." The writing is not so much on the wall as obliterating it.

Adding to the graffiti, in yet another development, the popular Indian magazine Open rips apart global warming, labelling it: "The Hottest Hoax in the World." Indian blogger Gurmeet in Liberty News Central thinks this could be the most hard-hitting article in the Indian MSM on AGW fraud ever.

Anyway, it's just getting too much to keep up with things now. There seems to be at least one new revelation every day.

More here and here and here and here.

As a special treat though, you can read about Dr Pachauri's smutty novel, chock full of badly written sex scenes, here.
