You too could be Richard Courtney, Expert Peer Reviewer
One of the jokes of the ages are those who place great stock in their having been "Expert Peer Reviewers" of the IPCC TAR and AR4 as evidence of their expertise on climate matters. Anyone with a room temperature IQ knows that the IPCC accepted comments from every Tom, Dick and Richard (even a Vincent Gray or two) who sent them in, and even, sometimes with a bit a exasperation, sometimes with a lot of exasperation, dealt with them all.
Now, all those who missed their chance can be "Expert Reviewers", ok commentators, on the Unified Synthesis Product on Global Climate Change in the United States.
