Still don’t have a full report on Climate change prediction:a robust or flawed process? but I do have a brief word of Lindzens tactics (being a skeptic he has “tactics”, of course, unlike the Good Guys who just tell it straight). Which were, apparently, to discuss abstruse points in great detail. The idea being to prevent any conclusion being visible to anyone without a great command of the science. So although Keith Shine was there to correct his radiative physics, the audience were just left listening to two people talking over their heads.
Or at least, thats the highly simplified summary of a part of the process. Mind you, L under questionning felt obliged to offer 0.5-2 oC for Clim Sens, which puts him (just about) within the IPCC range.
What Thorpe, Rapley or Corbyn may have said I don’t know. The entire thing was apparently not very satisfactory, presumably to no-ones great surprise.
[Update: Inel has a nice report; not too hopeful -W]
