On the Value of Getting the Acronym Right
Posted by greg2213 on February 15, 2010
I just googled IPCC mission, looking for some IPCC agenda stuff, and discovered that IPCC stands for (from G’s top 10:)
– INTEGRATED PLANT PROTECTION CENTER
– Internet Probation & Parole Control
– International Plant Protection Convention
– International Parti Poodle Club
– Initiative for Pediatric Palliative Care
– Instituto Poblano para la Productividad Competitiva
Only one of the top 10 has anything to do with the UN’s IPCC.
But wait, it seems that a typo was somehow entered into Google search (gremlins. I can’t think of any other possible explanation.)
Obvious, unless you’re in the middle of one thought and don’t notice certain things.I think I’ll make it a point to remember that one.
