Fake "ADDENDUM: Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States"

Eli has the details.

Coming soon "Addendum: The Warren Commission" - in which they conclude that Kennedy committed suicide.

What would be really delicious is if someone wrote up "Addendum: Mission Statement of the Cato Institute" (with the real authors in small print below the big headline) and sent nice glossy offprints to all of Cato's clients.

This just in from the Times of Wattsupistan:

Watts now seems ready to accept the IPCC reports as gospel, as long as they agree with Wikipedis:

Are you deliberately looking for made up psuedo-facts like the one you suggest ,or actual pieces of real information?

REPLY: It is in the IPCC report. Also on Wikipedia:


The relationship between carbon dioxide and radiative forcing is logarithmic, and thus increased concentrations have a progressively smaller warming effect.

The same logarithmic formula applies for other greenhouse gases such as methane, N2O or CFCs, with coefficients that can be found e.g. in the IPCC reports.[7]

[AW is always very keen to get people to apologise for him lying to them. I'm pretty sure that the CFC aren't in the logarithmic part of the conc range - which is part of why they're powerful, per molecule. But I don't think he's very good at, well, the science in any kind of depth - there's just a seizing at a few factoids.

I've corrected wikipedia's error. Now to find out what bozo wrote it in there. Hopefully not me :-) -W]
