### The IPCC uses buddy reviewed work, not actual peer review. Just
read the Climategate emails, showing collusion to exclude scientists
from publishing, to suppress dissenting opinions. This is not how
science works, this was pure politics.

Also, the IPCC projections have been crudely wrong and grossly
exaggerating the signal from even the cherry-picked research they
quoted. Brin is laughably off.
