IAC Report on IPCC
Posted by Jeff Id on August 30, 2010
I saw the reference to this at CA today. The IAC produced a number of recommendations to the IPCC for improving their structure. Of course it doesn’t and won’t address the key issue which is the recognition of the fundamental pressures on the IPCC report conclusions and the resulting motivations of the people in charge but I don’t think anyone expected that level of understanding. Unfortunately to me, these pressures require the organization to continue promotion of exaggerated, biased and extremist versions of the science, which it undoubtedly will.
I won’t have time to read the actual report until tonight at least but here is the link and the article which includes a link to the report.
UNITED NATIONS — The process used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to produce its periodic assessment reports has been successful overall, but IPCC needs to fundamentally reform its management structure and strengthen its procedures to handle ever larger and increasingly complex climate assessments as well as the more intense public scrutiny coming from a world grappling with how best to respond to climate change, says a new report from the InterAcademy Council (IAC), an Amsterdam-based organization of the world’s science academies.
