A few sites I've stumbled across recently....
Canadian blogger Donna Laframboise wondered just how many times the IPCC had cited the World Wildlife Fund in its report. The answer is quite a lot!

From her article: "The more successful the WWF is at persuading the public that there's a crisis, the more likely people are to give it money."
Exactly, and that is why they overestimate extinctions by two orders of magnitude also. Shouldn't it be illegal to use fraud to raise money? I think so.

I am sad for the animals betrayed by these people.
“The scientist behind the bogus claim in a Nobel Prize-winning UN report that Himalayan glaciers will have melted by 2035 last night admitted it was included purely to put political pressure on world leaders.
Dr Murari Lal also said he was well aware the statement, in the 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), did not rest on peer-reviewed scientific research.”
Is it this Dr Murari Lal?
From the WWF web site:
Climate Witness Science Advisory Panel (SAP)
Prof. Dr Murari Lal, specialises in global and regional climate variability, scenario development, regional environmental change, sectoral vulnerability assessment (water, biodiversity and agriculture), landscape ecology, biophysical remote sensing – GIS applications, ecosystem modeling, regional adaptation & mitigation potential, water resource management; Environment and Carbon Trading Group Halcrow Consulting India Ltd., India
About Prof. Murari LalLead or Co-ordinating Author on several chapters of IPCC Assessment Reportshttp://4dweb.proclim.ch/4dcgi/proclim/en/Detail_Person?lalm.newdelhi
About Halcrow Consulting:
“Environment and Carbon Trading Group Halcrow Consulting India Ltd., India”http://www.halcrow.com/html/documents/pdf/india/halcrow_india_environment_brochure.pdf
Carbon Trading is part of the Environment Division, now that is a surprise.
From the CRU website we see the WWF funds the CRU. I wonder where a charity gets the money to fund climate research?http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/cru/about/history/
The WWF funds the CRU
Murari Lal-> Halcrow Consulting->Carbon Trading
How about we skip the middle man:
Carbon Trading-> Halcrow Consulting-> WWF->CRU->IPCC
Carbon Trading->WWF->CRU->IPCCCarbon Trading->CRU->IPCCCarbon Trading->IPCC
Carbon Trading->IPCC->Carbon Trading
Does that look right?
Yer GraceAt Real Climate the tone of Gavan Schmidt’s responses to comments make interesting reading. For example, Tilo Reber and Steven Jörsäter have been making comments on a 17 Jan 2010, end of 2009 end of year summary by James Hansen and others, entitled ‘ If it’s that warm, how come it is so damned cold?”
To Tilo’s comment (No 475) Gavan opens his exasperated response with “This is like nailing jelly to a wall. I really should be doing something different........”http://www.realclimate.org/?comments_popup=2743
One could also apply the jelly analogy to the citations and statements in IPCC reports and possibly the ingredients selected for inclusion in climate models. Now that the Himalayan glacier flavoured jelly has slid off the wall, other flavoured jellies appear to have been nailed to the walls!
Is it because the WWF evokes warm fuzzy feelings that the Panda flavoured nailed jelly was not noticed earlier?
Coca Cola has partnered with the WWF.I told Coke that I'll be drinking Pepsi because of the partnership.

Sordnay. Also 51 google hits for WWF reports when one add the word "extinction" (but there are also lots of non-WWF reports on that subject that's crap):

Perhaps the WWF has such an amazing track record of accurate predictions that any of its reports can be taken as gospel!
The role of the WWF in the AGW affair needs to be investigated thoroughly.
It can be no coincidence that Robert Napier, chairman of the Met Office, was chief executive of WWF-UK in his previous appointment.
Presumably he got the job of chairman of the UK Govt's principal global warming propaganda generating outfit as a result of his success in supervising the generation of such propaganda with the WWF.
I wonder if the general public realize that a donation to the WWF is going to fund climate change research. Someone clever should do a spoof commercial featuring bedraggled climatologists at the Du Badley Research Centre with a sympathetic voice appealing for funds to help save the endangered scientists and then post it.All kidding aside, these environmental NGO's need to be thoroughly investigated. In my opinion, they are the circulatory system of the AGW body.
The carbon market is one of the fastest growing financial markets in the world today. it should be managed properly to create healthy environment. The explosive growth of the carbon market in the last 5 years has established it as one of the fastest growing financial markets worldwide. According to a World Bank report (“State and Trends of the Carbon Market 2011”), the market’s worth expanded to US$ 142 billion in 2010 from US$ 10 billion just 5 years prior to that.
