A scientist critiques the IPCC summary

Dr. Vincent Gray of New Zealand has this excellent summary of the recent IPCC Summary for Policy Makers.

He writes
I wrote an entire book criticising the 2001 IPCC WGI Report (Gray 2002) and a full study of the complete 2007 Report must await its release. I will therefore confine these comments to the aspects of the “2007 Summary for Policymakers” which I find the most distasteful. They come under the headings of unreliable data, inadequate statistical treatment and gross exaggeration of model capacity.
