This is good.  changes I would make:

1) say she 'misrepresents' instead of 'misunderstands' in the second to last subheading. and

2) say:

Curry does not accurately represent the AGW theory or IPCC report.

instead of:

Curry does not seem to understand either the AGW theory or IPCC report.

 

While I agree with you that she doesn't quite get it, it may look like we are trying to mind read.

Nice post. That Ewok planted in the middle of the post sure looks funny.

Thanks Rob, I was going for a bit of humor.  I just hope George Lucas doesn't sue me ;-)

I find the Ewok to be funny, but I can just imagine the denialists gleefully pointing out how the underdog Ewoks eventually prevailed against the evil IPCC Empire.

Ah the Ewoks were just a distraction - they barely did anything!
