IPCC Finds Global Warming Evidence in Boot-Cleaning Guide

Posted by Dave Blount at February 3, 2010 3:07 PM

These days the liars at the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are really having to dig to come up with evidence of the nonexistent global warming crisis. They're still finding it, but in odd places — like a tourist group's boot-cleaning guide. From the IPCC's Fourth Assessment Report, Working Group II, section 15.7.2, Economic Activity and Sustainability in the Antarctic:

The multiple stresses of climate change and increasing human activity on the Antarctic Peninsula represent a clear vulnerability (see Section 15.6.3), and have necessitated the implementation of stringent clothing decontamination guidelines for tourist landings on the Antarctic Peninsula (IAATO, 2005).

IAATO, 2005 refers to a boot-cleaning guide by the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators.

Maybe they were using the obscure source in hopes no one would notice that the guide did not once mention global warming, climate change, or even snake oil.
