Listen to the squealing: Scientists criticize the House vote to cut off funds to the IPCC. Key quote:

Without the federal support, [Stanford ecologist Chris Field] said, “We’d have no ability to organize meetings, we’d have no ability to coordinate chapters.”

In other words, no more jaunts to Cancun in the midst of winter. What a shame!

Considering the insincere effort of the IPCC and its scientists to correct its numerous errors, as well as their admitted political agenda, it seems completely appropriate to stop funding it with U.S. tax dollars. If these environmentalists want to issue a report, they should pay for it themselves.
