“The IPCC gives me a shock” (2011-12-16). Anthony Watts boasts that as eminent ‘citizen-scientist’ he’s been appointed to the IPCC:
I’ve been appointed as an expert reviewer for the IPCC AR5. I’ve viewed the invitation letter and it’s the real deal.
His “qualification”? He found a web page and entered his e-mail address.
Nobody recruited me, I was not invited by IPCC to apply, I was given a tip by another skeptic on the application page – Anthony
Anthony’s also been appointed customer-in-line #53 by his local butcher and has found the mailing address for submitting letters-to-the-editor at the Carmichael Times. It’s the trifecta!
His readers (some of them have received the golden ticket too) don’t seem to understand the difference between writing a scientific report and being allowed to whine about same. Are they one of the cool kids now or is it a trap?
