We interrupt your diet of boatie-type news [update: sorry, late boatie news: a great bow-cam video of Champs 6 bumping the Hornets (sorry Paul)] for something related to climate: BigCityLib notices that the IOP (remember that bunch of revisionist fools?) has deleted the Energy sub group:
Following the meeting of the Science Board on 17 June 2010, it is with regret that I announce that the Energy Sub-group is to be disbanded, immediately.
Or has it? The website still has them [Update: thanks to J who points out that is the Energy Group, not the Energy sub-group of the science policy board, which is apparently a different thing. Perhaps I need to try to understnad their structure. Anyone who thinks they understand it - please comment. Googling around "Peter Gill" found me "http://www.iop.org/activity/branches/South_East/South.../file_29092.pdf" but it seems to have been airbrushed off the IoP website -W] (it would be nice to go back through the internet archive to check up, but the slimey IOP toads block robots in order to hide their airbrushing deeds in darkness; alternatively, they are incompetent. Probably the latter, on reflection).
This all comes from the BH blog, which interestingly has an entire article by Peter Gill explaining how all the crap in the IOP statement is there because he put it in.
Full marks for honesty [See update] that man, but none for sanity.
[Updates: I can see this is going to run and run. Hank finds http://www.iop.org/policy/consultations/energy_environment/file_41854.pdf which clarifies the Energy Group / sub-Group somewhat
Update again: I can see I was wrong to praise PG's honesty. As several commenters have pointed out, he doesn't actually admit to having messed with the submission, but is still pretending not to have done so -W]
