Tax avoidance.

Are we being treated like human beings by our Corporate Captains? Have they heard of the word 'compassion' or is greed the guiding light for them?

I remember your maxim, Donander.
"Always trust the minority; the majority is always wrong." When speaking about those of credible expertise, of course.
I dream, therefore I am.

Dreamweaver, it's over ..... even Mike Hulme knows the IPCC's credibility is shot:
http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v5 ... 2624c.html
  • Sociologists of science wish to study the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for the same reason that they want to examine other loci at which scientific knowledge is made — whether in a laboratory, the field, a museum or at a conference. We too approached the IPCC in autumn 2010 with a request to study it from the inside; we too were told ‘no’ (see Nature 502, 281; 2013).

    We therefore had to rely on self-reported accounts. Using document analysis and interviews with lead authors, we analysed how authors navigate the distinction between scientific description and value judgements, for example when offering information pertaining to the definition of ‘dangerous climate change’.

    The IPCC has become a dominant institution in climate science — in the assessment of knowledge for policy-making, and in how assessment practices alter empirical and computer-simulated climate science. Global knowledge assessments such as those undertaken by the IPCC call for carefully documented systematic studies by trained ethnographers.

    Let us hope that the IPCC will recognize itself as a legitimate object for scholarly investigation this time around
    .
You subscribe to Nature .... check out Hulme's article.
The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.
