A report of the criticism by the Global Climate Coalition (a lobbying group
of 60 industrial concerns) of the report by the IPCC, and the response by
Dr. Santer and by Sir John Houghton, appeared in the 13 June 1996 issue of
Nature (p. 546).

The points made are essentially the same as those posted by Dennis
Sweitzer. In the article, Sir John Houghton is quoted as saying that the
GCC's allegations are "scurrilous" and "have absolutely no basis in fact."
For those who are not aware, Houghton is on the editorial board of "Science
& Christian Faith" published by Christians in Science the sister
organization of ASA in the UK. He is a frequent speaker at Christian
conferences and contributor to publications. He has also written a book on
global climate change.
