(Readers can leave comments at the Washington Post website here.)

Washington Post’s Andrew Freedman: Dear Mr. Morano of Climate Depot: Your lengthy response to my piece “Obama Needs to Give a Climate Speech – ASAP” contains numerous errors of fact and interpretation. I think you revealed your politically driven agenda quite nakedly when you assailed the United Nations for its role in climate and energy policy.

Climate Depot Response: Please elaborate on the alleged “numerous errors of fact and interpretation.” You do not cite a single specific “error” in Climate Depot’s response. The UN has destroyed itself when it comes to integrity on climate science and energy policy. UN leaders cannot help but cherry-pick and hype global warming beyond anything resembling science.

Here is a very small sampling of what current and former UN scientists have to say about the UN and its scientific methods.

Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.”UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.

“The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t have open minds… I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists.”Indian geologist Dr. Arun D.
