Climategate – IPCC Attempts To Restore It’s Reputation
Posted by Tory Aardvark
The IPCC has taken a bashing in recent months, right from the moment that Climategate started to the revelations that the 2007 report on melting Himalayan glaciers was based on WWF propaganda.
Rajendra Pachauri the head of the IPCC is not a scientist, but a fomer railway engineer who has come in for a great deal of criticsm for the events at the IPCC on his watch. There is a really post on Pachuari from Richard North on how Pachuari’s own institute has been paid millions of Euros.
In the next few days, the world’s leading authority on global warming plans to roll out a strategy to tackle a tough problem: restoring its own bruised reputation.
A months-long crisis at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has upended the world’s perception of global warming, after hacked emails and other disclosures revealed deep divisions among scientists working with the United Nation-sponsored group. That has raised questions about the panel’s objectivity in assessing one of today’s most hotly debated scientific fields.
To restore its credibility, the IPCC will focus on enforcing rules already on the books, IPCC Chairman Rajendra Pachauri and other officials said in interviews. Scientific claims must be checked with several experts before being published. IPCC reports must reflect disagreements when consensus can’t be reached. And people who write reports must refrain from advocating specific environmental actions—a political line the IPCC isn’t supposed to cross. Full story in the Wall Street Journal
If the IPCC are serious about restoring it’s reputation then firing Pachuari would be a good way to start.
