Climate Change - IPCC Report Stirs Contrarians

The latest release of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change findings has been too dramatic for the media to ignore, and there has been a lot of coverage. However, the increasing seriousness of the situation and the dire nature of the warnings appears to have inspired further efforts by the corporate-backed contrarians.

With this in mind I thought it worthwhile putting up a recent comments box message on the blog front page -

I have an urgent call to action for our UK blogging, media and activist friends.

There is a Canadian Exxon-funded think tank readying to launch an attack on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report on Monday, Feb. 5th at 10am at the Atrium Restaurant (across from the Houses of Parliament, Four Millbank, Westminster.

Here's the info, with backgrounders on the group, we need people down there to get out the message about who these guys really are.

I live halfway around the world (in Canada) and cannot attend. If even just 5 people print off copies of the briefing note I have prepared and be there to hand it out to meeting -- anybody can go. And, trust me, you will really be making a difference.

Here's a PDF of the briefing note: desmogblog pdf
