    The Global Warming Policy Foundation today rejected as baseless claims by Rajendra Pachauri, Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, that the IPCC’s erroneous doomsday prediction about the fate of Himalayan glaciers was an isolated and wholly uncharacteristic mistake. According to the GWPF, and contrary to Dr Pachauri’s claims, there is already ample evidence […]

    The Observer: I hate to say I told you so, but I have predicted the failure of the Copenhagen summit to agree to binding commitments for over a year.
