IPCC report; fossil fuel industry responses

The International Panel on Climate Change Report has been released, providing us with the strongest evidence yet that signifigcant climate change is caused by human activity, and that it is a threat to life on this planet.

Of course, the fossil industry hacks are disputing this finding:

The American Enterprise Institute is offering $10,000 to scientists prepared to write papers opposing findings of the IPCC report.

The Fraser Institute will be giving a press conference in London on Monday to give their reaction to the findings. Media Identification will be required for admission.

George Bushes hedges taking action on the issue.
