I’ve been interviewed regarding the UN climate panel’s recent announcement. In my view, its future is bleak.
Over the weekend, I was interviewed by the Australian news site, MercatorNet, about my reactions to the Friday news conference organized by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in Stockholm.
In that context, I quoted climatologist Patrick Michaels comparing the IPCC to a treed cat. Rather than retreating, he says the IPCC has chosen to climb onto “higher and thinner branches, while yowling ever louder.” It’s a brilliant metaphor.
My thoughts on the IPCC’s future can be summed up this way:
Throw in the towel, boys. The game is up. You had us fooled for a while, but we’re wiser now.
