Yikes: For AR5's "Evaluation of Climate Models" chapter, uber-warmist Andy Pitman is a review editor

Galloping camel: IPCC's AR5 Working Group Files

Chapter 9........Evaluation of Climate Models [Review Editors include Andy Pitman, Australia]

Tom Nelson: [Lots of Andy Pitman quotes here]

Professor Andy Pitman of the Climate Change Research Centre at the University of New South Wales explained why he now declines requests from radio sceptics.
"It would be like asking a cardiologist to respond to the well known theory that humans do not have a heart and cardiologists only claim we have a heart so they can make lots of money claiming to operate on them.
— Professor Andy Pitman, Climate Change Research Centre, UNSW, 17the March, 2011"
UN IPCC Lead Author Professor Andy Pitman, from the University of New South Wales, has joined forces with psychologist Ben Newell from the School of Psychology, also at the University of New South Wales, in producing a paper which says that “Insights from the psychology of judgment and decision making might help the climate community communicate global warming science to an often skeptical public.”
“…the sceptics are so well funded, so well organised, have nothing else to do. They kind of don’t have day jobs. They can put all of their efforts into mis-informing and mis-communicating climate science to the general public whereas the climate scientists have day jobs and this actually isn’t one of them. “
