‘We are now witnessing the disintegration of the IPCC’. That is what I wrote in Email GLACIERGATE

The bombardment continues with increased ferocity. The IPCC cannot possibly survive.
DISINTEGRATION OF THE IPCC
It is very difficult to get the message of the disintegration of the IPCC across to those who do not have a close interest in the subject, particularly to South African recipients. Until now, the IPCC scientists have protected themselves by developing a strong herd instinct. Their South African counterparts vigorously countered any attempts to criticise their science. Nevertheless, climate change is not a political issue in South Africa. It does not feature on the priorities of any political party. No South African government, now or in the future, would dare impose the measures now in force in the UK, EU and Australia.
My personal concern, which has not yet been expressed in the overseas media or discussions, is how will the countries that have already imposed costly and unpopular measures on their own citizens, react when they realise that the world's major developing countries are unlikely to follow their example? The IPCC documentation, the Stern Review and other sources have made it very clear that this is an all or nothing exercise. Trade wars and sanctions are on the horizon. These in turn could lead to loss of confidence in all United Nations bodies.
