The IPCC?

17/12/2011

A rabbit is sitting in the forest on a tree stump punching at the keys of a laptop. A fox walks past, stops and asks: “What are you writing?” “A scientific study of how rabbits eat foxes,” says the rabbit. “Whaaat?” says the fox. “You’re crazy.” “Come with me,” says the rabbit. “I’ll show you something.” An hour later, the rabbit is sitting on the tree stump with his laptop again. A wolf walks past, stops and asks: “What are you writing?” “A scientific study of how rabbits eat wolves,” says the rabbit. “Whaaat?” says the wolf. “You’re a nutcase.” “Come with me,” says the rabbit. “I’ll show you something.” An hour later, the rabbit is back on his stump with his laptop. A bear walks past, stops and asks: “What are you writing?” “A scientific study of how rabbits eat bears,” says the rabbit. “Whaaat?” says the bear. “You’re off your head.” “Come with me,” says the rabbit. “I’ll show you something.” ***** A mound of wolf and fox bones is piled up outside a cave. Beside it, a lion is gnawing at the bloodied leg of a bear. The moral of the story? The accuracy of your scientific study is irrelevant if you’re mates with the project manager.
