“IOP fires back over criticism of their submission to Parliament“. Anthony Watts copies and pastes an entire article from Physics World entitled Concerns raised over Institute of Physics climate submission that he thinks shows the Institute of Physics defending their widely criticized assessment of the “Climategate” issue. (Their submission was authored by their “Energy Sub-group”, which has clear links to denialist interests.) Read that article title again, Anthony!
Let’s have a look at some of the quotes from the article…
…“there is no doubt that climate change is happening, that it is linked to man-made emissions of greenhouse gases, and that we should be taking action to address it now”.
…”we are already reviewing our consultation process for preparing policy submissions”
…the IOP’s submission appears to prejudge the outcome of the inquiry
…The Institute also says it “strongly rebuts” accusations of “being overly influenced by one ‘climate-change sceptic’ on the energy sub-group
That’s rock-solid, Anthony. No wonder you’re encouraging your followers to flood the article comments section…
