Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Climate facts with Kev

In the same interview where Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd wrongly asserted that Australia is the hottest and driest continent, he also said this:
PM KEVIN RUDD: Well, I just look at what the scientists say. There's a group of scientists called the International Panel on Climate Change - 4000 of them. Guys in white coats who run around and don't have a sense of humour. They just measure things. And what they say to us is it's happening and it's caused by human activity.

Now, it turns out there aren't 4,000 scientists from the IPCC.

UPDATE: More climate change style accounting from BOAB.

Hm. According to the linked article, it's more like 60. That's rounding way up.
