Get prepared for the onslaught...

Congressional hearings notwithstanding...
The International Panel on Climate Change is releasing its next "assessement" report on Climate Change. Global warming, or not, there's something really fishy going on...
They're going to release the "Summary for Policy Makers" Feb. 2. This is the "abstract" of the whole massive report. This is what politico's and NGOs are supposed to use to formulate policy. Except for problems with the actual science in the report, there's nothing fishy about releasing the policy maker summary.
However the IPCC states that they're not going to release the report so they can adjust the science to fit the summary.
This is what the IPCC procedures actually state: Changes (other than grammatical or minor editorial changes) made after acceptance by the Working Group or the Panel shall be those necessary to ensure consistency with the Summary for Policymakers or the Overview Chapter.
Where else can you release the summary and then change the body to fit the summary? Is there not something seriously screwed up with this?
You may believe in anthropogenic global warming...or not. If the science is sound, then "belief" doesn't matter. But to have a policy maker summary come out before the report and then have time to adjust the report to fit the summary is just wrong, regardless of which side of the issue you stand.
