InterAcademy Council to Review the IPCC Procedures
[last update: 2010/03/11]
InterAcademy Council Requested to Conduct “Independent” Review
“The InterAcademy Council (IAC), a multinational organization of the world's science academies, has been requested to conduct an independent review of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) processes and procedures. The study comes at the invitation of the United Nations secretary-general and the chair of the IPCC, and will help guide the processes and procedures of the IPCC's fifth report and future assessments of climate science.”
The IAC report “Inventing a better future” states: “the world is today dominated by a market-oriented economy … it is clear that the starkest problem facing the world and the international scientific community is the large and growing gap between the industrialized nations and the less-developed countries.”
The IAC news release also states: “Lord Martin Rees, IAC board member and president of the Royal Society, said, "Climate science is inherently complex, integrating many different disciplines and kinds of data. The IPCC's role in assessing and expounding the latest scientific findings is getting ever more important.”
Rees stated in the past: “Collective human actions are transforming, even ravaging, the biosphere - perhaps irreversibly - through global warming” [http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2006/jun/10/science.comment]
An independent review?
Lighting the way - Toward a sustainable energy future
That’s the title from a study report published by the InterAcademy Council, October 2007
The study panel included IPCC Chair Rajendra Pachauri, and Obama’s Energy Secretary Steven Chu.
The report states:
An unbiased, “independent” organization?
An “independent” review?
An “independent” review has been requested by “the Chair of the IPCC” – that’s Pachauri, known for his conflict of interest (see: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/6847227/Questions-over-business-deals-of-UN-climate-change-guru-Dr-Rajendra-Pachauri.html) Number 1 in the IAC “Conflicts of interest” checklist is: “Does the candidate hold any position in an organization that may profit financially or otherwise from conclusions and recommendations that may emerge from the study panel?”
(Chu is also a non-independent misleader: see: http://www.appinsys.com/globalwarming/MidwestChu.htm)
