The end of the IPCC?
The end of the IPCC?

International Business Times, Tuesday 4th November 2014
The future of the United Nations’ leading climate body [the IPCC] is uncertain, as experts wonder whether the panel’s merits outweigh its shortcomings. Michael Oppenheimer, lead author of the second part of the agency’s most recent climate change report, told the Associated Press: “You have to ask yourself: Is that the best way they should be spending their time?” The panel has also been criticized for delivering information that was already known by the time they announced it. On Sunday, the IPCC released its most comprehensive report yet on climate change. The painstaking study, the agency’s fifth since 1988, was six years in the making and included the work of about 4,000 authors, reviewers and contributors and about 30,000 climate studies, according to the AP. But many of the claims made in the latest IPCC report are nearly verbatim identical to ones included in its 1990 report.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
