Still they want more

Climate scientists who worked on the UN panel on global warming have hit out at "sloppy" colleagues from other disciplines. Speaking on condition of anonymity, several lead authors of the working group one (WG1) report ... told The Guardian they were dismayed by the actions of their colleagues.

Several authors defended Pachauri and the IPCC process. "This is a transient and manufactured crisis and will likely go away with time," one IPCC author said. "What the science community needs is a few huge donors to throw millions of dollars behind PR campaigns to counter the propaganda out there. We are being attacked through baseless smear campaigns and we are not PR experts."

These people have very short memories. What about the £6 million the government paid for that appalling "bedtime stories" campaign?
