DeSmog Leaks Advance Copy of Think Tank's IPCC Attack

UPDATED: with details of the Fraser Institute's planned press conference

A Canadian think tank’s “independent” analysis of the IPCC Summary for Policymakers is based on out-of-date information and is specifically misleading about the nature of the scientific summary that it presumes to criticize, DeSmogBlog.com President James Hoggan said Wednesday.

The Fraser Institute will release their report in London on Feb.5. Here are the details for our UK friends who might be interested in attending:

Date: February 5, 2007
Time: 10am (London time)
Location: The Atrium Restaurant (across from the Houses of Parliament), Four Millbank, Westminster

You can find a copy of the leaked document and a briefing note on the Fraser Institute here.

UPDATE: I've just uploaded a new version of the briefing note, without hyperlinks for those who want to print off a copy. Titled “print version.” (KG)

UPDATE: The Fraser Institute issued a second media advisory yesterday. H/T to Buckdog .

Is ExxonMobil Cultivating a Religious Voice, as Well?

Thanks to frequent correspondent Wacki for finding this EthicsDaily.com story, pointing out the ExxonMobil connection to the Interfaith Stewardship Alliance (ISA) petition demanding INaction on climate change.

You might remember the petition being launched in July, a response to the surprising call to action that the Evangelical Climate Initiative (ECI) launched  in February.
