What caused a fall from grace so sudden that IPCCs insiders now demand Pachauris ouster, and that leads the Indian government to set up an Indian IPCC as a national alternative to the IPCC, declaring that it cannot rely any longer on the organization that its own representative heads?
One answer is Climategate the unauthorized release of emails in November that showed the duplicity of scientists associated with the IPCC. Unquestionably, Climategate opened the floodgates to the torrent of scandals that have since poured out, seemingly without end. Many of the new scandals, some of them sporting -gate as a suffix, were little known before the Climategate emails were released; many were well known, but not publicized by a compliant press. Their sheer number deserves cataloguing.
More WWF: The IPCCs reliance on the World Wildlife Fund as an authority in Glaciergate was no anomaly. Blogger Donna Laframboise thought to do a search on the IPCCs own site of WWF and found it turned up dozens of times, and was a source on everything from mudflows and avalanches to fish in the Mesoamerican reef.

And these are only the cases we know about - how many more are yet to be discovered? More popcorn required!
Remember when WWF stood for World Wrestling Federation, first they sould have never sold this acronoyn to these nut jobs. Although most of us realize that the old WWF was made up, the new WWF is just following the same tradition all made up. I also think most of the wrestlers have more common sense than these bunch of idiots.
BTW, the WWF (founded 1960) successfully sued the World Wrestling Federation when they first started, because they used the same initials - so, it’s now known as WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).
Thanks. Great summary.

And yes, it is a swindle- a fraud and a cheat and a scam-- a deliberately designed construct intended to con you out of things you hold dear-- money, and prosperity, and freedom... and a few other things, as well.
