that would be the true way of proving that there is no problem with man-made pollution....put up or shut up.

In the meantime, governments continue to tax us on the basis of being "greener" (and yet less than 1% of taxes raised by this method go to green projects) and people like gore continue to get rich off the back of it, and the scam that is carbon credit trading.

Given that the prediction was improbable if not impossible, isn't it odd no-one noticed this earlier? Did anyone read the 4AR?

Climate scientist ousted
BBC News, April 12, 2002
One of the most outspoken scientists on the issue of global warming has been ousted from his job.
Dr Robert Watson was voted out of the chair of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on Friday and will be replaced by one of the current vice-chairs, Dr Rajendra Pachauri.
Dr Watson's removal will spark a huge political row - environmentalists accuse the US Government of orchestrating a campaign to have the scientist sidelined.
They say Washington disliked Dr Watson's willingness to tell governments what he believes to be the unvarnished truth - that human activities are now contributing dangerously to climate change.
Government representatives attending an IPCC meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, voted 76 to 49 for the engineer and economist Dr Rajendra Pachauri to take the chair.
Dr Pachauri, the director of the Tata Energy Research Institute in New Delhi, was the US administration's favoured candidate.
The lead author of the IPCC chapter, Indian glaciologist Murari Lal, told New Scientist he "outright rejected" the notion that the IPCC was off the mark on Himalayan glaciers. "The IPCC authors did exactly what was expected from them," he says.
