Andrei The rats are leaving the sinking ship

This just in - from Andrew Weaver, an IPCC lead author and warmist.
A senior Canadian climate scientist says the United Nations' panel on global warming has become tainted by political advocacy, that its chairman should resign, and that its approach to science should be overhauled.

Andrew Weaver, a climatologist at the University of Victoria, says the leadership of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has allowed it to advocate for action on global warming, rather than serve simply as a neutral science advisory body.

"There's been some dangerous crossing of that line," said Weaver on Tuesday, echoing the published sentiments of other top climate scientists in the U.S. and Europe this week.

"Some might argue we need a change in some of the upper leadership of the IPCC, who are perceived as becoming advocates," he told Canwest News Service. "I think that is a very legitimate question."
Now the interesting thing about this is, a few years ago Sixty Scientists wrote an open letter to the Canadian Prime Minister expressing doubts about the so called "consensus" on Global Warming.

As it happens this very same gentleman who is now lamenting leading lights in the IPCC as "crossing the line" into advocacy not only signed but helped to organize this response to the skeptics letter.

And when you see things like this happening you might be forgiven for thinking the jig is up.

Aha ... so perhaps it has reached a 'tipping point?'
