Essenbach - "Don't Disband The IPCC"

One would expect Willis Essenbach, an articulate critic of the global warming canard who posts often at WUWT, to strongly concur with those calling for the UN IPCC to be disbanded. It is, after all, a political organization that has done more harm to science than the Catholic Church ever did circa 1600. Be that as it may:

Here on WUWT, Ron Cram has provided an interesting overview of a number of people’s ideas about desirable changes to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC). He proposes that the IPCC provide us with a majority and a minority view of climate science, rather than just a single Assessment Report.

I’m here to propose something very different. Some people think the IPCC should be disbanded. I’m not one of them.

I think disbanding the IPCC is a bad idea. Instead, I think that we should take the IPCC to the crossroads at midnight and pound an aspen stake through its heart, stuff its head with garlic, and scatter the remains to be disinfected by sunlight so it can never, ever rise again.

Let me give you a list of my reasons why this is the preferable outcome, in no particular order: . . .
