The IPCC, 1990: "Detection of the Greenhouse Effect in Observations" – at odds with the 1988 Senate testimony of Dr. James Hansen?

I’m rather tired still from my trip, and so I don’t have the energy to get into a detailed read and analysis of this document which was posted up on the IPCC website just 14 hours ago. This is the first time I’ve seen this document, though others may know of it. But, I’m sure…

Not Evil, Just Romm

UPDATE: Romm at CP makes some significant concessions to error with additions, but can’t bring himself to mention WUWT, credit Willis, or allow any commenters to do so either. He has been “disappearing” critical comments as evidenced by our own commenters reposting their disappeared comments here. It is comical to watch. – Anthony UPDATE: That’s…
