Yes, so? Given that he graduated from Harvard (A.B., 1950; A.M., 1952; Ph.D., 1956), served as Secretary of Defense and Energy, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission and Assistant Director of the Bureau of the Budget (OMB), I think him quite qualified to analyze the policy implications of the IPCC findings. As usual, since you can't refute the argument, you attack the one making the argument. Classical ad hom.
Remember at the top where they said "A group of scientists in the US ...." Well apparently former CIA directors and Defense Secretaries now qualify as scientists.

What a bunch of buffoons.
If you are referring to your remedial night school staff and student pals, Iíd agree - you do appear to be a bunch of buffoons.
