Agence France-Presse in Washington – September 21, 2013

“The IPCC report will help for the observers and the public to understand where the majority of the scientists’ opinion stands,” said Alden Meyer of the Union of Concerned Scientists.“But I don’t think it will change the mind of the hard core deniers.”Meyer added: “We don’t call them sceptics, because they are not putting forward alternatives ideas and having them tested in a peer review journals. They basically deny this problem.”
