Or is that not what you meant?
I love you too.

Some of the worst of us consider it so bad that we think the chairman of the IPCC should be forced to resign or be thrown out.

I actually posted the full journal article a couple of days ago in the P&T Bullshit thread on this topic if anyone wants to read it.

Let's not get overexcited.

The IPCC report consists of three volumes, each about 1000 pages long. Only the first volume is written by climate scientists and contains a summary of the current state of scientific knowledge. The second volume deals with the impact of climate change and is written by social scientists. This is where the typo you mentioned appeared. Of course, this was directly contradicted by Volume 1, which had the correct data on glaciers. Moreover, the typo itself was discovered and pointed out by climatologists.

Since you are such a stickler for accuracy, I expect you already know all this.

Now, from time to time there will be other errors in climate science, as there are in all areas of scientific research; generally, these are corrected as more data is found and normal people move on. But you are of course free to act like the creationists who seize on every error made by an evolutionist as THE SMOKING GUN THAT INVALIDATES THE ENTIRE THEORY. This is not crazy at all.
