UN Climate Review Red Herring

The United Nations is to review IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) processes. The IAC (InterAcademy Council) has been charged with this task.

It is not a review of the Climate science itself. It's about "quality control":

  • Analyse the IPCC process, including links with other UN agencies
  • Review the use of non-peer reviewed sources, and quality control on data
  • Assess how procedures handle "the full range of scientific views"
  • Review how the IPCC communicates with the public and the media

Let's hope it restores public trust.

The report, due in August, is a red herring. It's time for action not this distraction.  Its results will be ignored or distorted by the climate contrarians.
