Steve, Have you ever met a scientist that did not have an ideology? In 
my experience with thousands of scientists both industry, government, 
and academia, I can't recall any who did not have an ideology of one 
sort or another be they Christians, Moslems, Buddists, Hindu, atheist, 
etc. A scientist can always claim his or her  results are statistical 
correct and pure but remember the scientist still decides what subject 
to work on in the first place. It can work both ways. We both pretty 
much know where most coral reef scientists heads are. I would not expect 
them to read the
NIPCC report even thou it has a large coral reef section based on peer 
reviewed literature. You can find that in chapter 6 
http://climatechangereconsidered.org/  The reader should be remindned 
that all the media buzz about the IPCC report is based on the Summary 
for Policy Makers which was not written by the scientists who wrote the 
IPCC report.  Gene
