Who Needs Science When You Can Just Make Stuff Up?

Still more hijinks from the IPCC. It seems they just made up stuff to go into their last report – or rather, just embellished other people’s made up stuff.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in its 2007 benchmark report that even a slight change in rainfall could see swathes of the rainforest rapidly replaced by savanna grassland.

The source for its claim was a report from WWF, an environmental pressure group, which was authored by two green activists. They had based their “research” on a study published in Nature, the science journal, which did not assess rainfall but in fact looked at the impact on the forest of human activity such as logging and burning. This weekend WWF said it was launching an internal inquiry into the study.

Gee, one assumes they’ll return their illegitimately earned Nobel Prize. And the rest of their ill-gotten gains.

Sure they will.

They will keep stonewalling, insisting the science is perfectly sound even if it is made up out of the whole cloth. Thus it is with frauds and cultists.

UPDATE: Heh. Tim Blair also uses the term “make stuff up”.
