Readers will recall that on the heels of the release of Working Group I (WGI)’s contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), the IPCC released a movie and a few days later they decided to disable comments and ratings.
My understanding is that WGII’s Summary for Policy Makers (SPM) (versions of which have been leaked hither and yon during the past few weeks, along with “traditional” ramping up of the usual scary stories in the MSM) is due to be released on March 31 (which it may already be in Japan).
But regardless of the actual content of the full report – and/or the SPM – the busy-bee movie-makers were ready to roll, today! And … drum-roll, please … roll-out they did:
Second chorus, second verse … a little bit louder and a whole lot worse!
But they seem to have learned some “dialogue” lessons from the experience of the release of the first movie, and they’re taking … uh … no risks, this time!
From the get-go, the powers that be have decided that no comments or ratings will be allowed.
Quelle surprise, eh?!
UPDATE: The awesome Alex Cull has provided a transcript if you’re afraid you might have missed any crucial content in the Movie
