Controversial Philip Mote named an IPCC lead author!

OSU pair to write climate report
CORVALLIS — Two Oregon State University scientists have been named lead authors for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report, to be issued in 2013.

Peter Clark, an OSU professor of geosciences who studies glaciers, and Philip Mote, head of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute at OSU, will begin working with colleagues from around the world on the follow-up to the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report, which won a share of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.
...Mote is a lead author on cryosphere observations, and will focus on snowpack.

Mote also was a lead author for the 2007 IPCC Fourth Assessment Report.

[Steve Oregon comment] Here’s the scoop on the snow pack episode.

The Phil Mote is the same one who is now the Oregon Climate guru. He recently apologized for getting political and sending out a political email from his state office.

Willie Soon is now calling for Mote to resign.
It is simply unacceptable to have phil mote running his own personal brand of
“climate justice” under tax-payer funded money from his office while taking
such deliberate attacks on Art Robinson as a candidate to the US House of Representatives …
his apology needs to come with actual punishment … words are no longer enough in his case (considering the history
of exaggerations and activism from him completely outside of the realm of his office for “climate science”
