Foster: WWF’s tainted ‘witnesses’

The Financial Post‘s Peter Foster spotlights the World Wildlife Fund’s touchiness about its cozy relationship with the IPCC.

Keying off the WWF’s reaction to Donna laframboise’s new book about the IPCC (The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World’s Top Climate Expert), Foster writes:

Ms. Laframboise’s book claims that the WWF — along with other environmental NGOs such as Greenpeace — has “infiltrated” the IPCC. The WWF subsequently issued a press release describing the assertion as “ludicrous.” Her “sole evidence” was “some overlap between some of the thousands of scientists who have worked for the IPCC and members of a scientific advisory panel to WWF’s climate witness scheme.”

Funny how even the most tenuous link between any individual skeptic and Big Oil or Big Coal is considered to taint all skepticism, and yet to point out the implications of the very significant “overlap” between a radical activist organization and the IPCC is “ludicrous.”
