The IPCC’s Pretend Neutrality

“Suppose there are two amateur baseball teams – the blues and the reds. Suppose they both believe they’re entitled to use the same playing field on Saturday mornings and that an arbiter is appointed to decide the matter. Each team is given a chance to argue their case. The arbiter makes a show of listening carefully to both sides. Then he announces he’ll return in a week with his verdict.

Suppose that, in the interim, it becomes clear the arbiter is actually pals with the red team.”
