Roger Pielke Jr. found a figure in the latest IPCC report that he calls"just embarrassing."
However, I've found an even more remarkable IPCC figure: it's Figure S&M-XXX (it's really buried, so you'll have to really dig down to find it).
It compares normalized global weather-related losses with U.S. patents issued. There is a clear correlation. It's obvious that increasing the number of U.S. patents issued causes normalized global weather-related losses to increase. When will the U.S. Patent Office start behaving responsibly, and stop issuing patents???! (Will it only be when G.W. Bush leaves the Whitehouse?)
