As ridiculous as that headline is, it is the theme du jour in the denialosphere….
The chair of the UN’s panel on climate change Dr Rajendra Pachauri was written a “racy” romance novel and therefore the IPCC AR4 is unreliable propaganda. Um…okay.
If I wanted the denialists to win the PR battle, I would quietly but urgently try to warn them about going a bit too far in the mud slinging ad hominems.
I mean, really, isn’t that a truly laughable thing to get worked up about? Can’t just about anyone with the minimal intelligence required to post a comment on a blog see how utterly irrelevant this “revelation” is to the real issues at hand?
(That would be a “yes” to the former question but sadly a “no” to the latter).
So I guess now the question is, is that as low as they can go? The answer will be worth waiting for I am sure…
