Looks like the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change is looking for a better way to put together their climate reports. A good start for the IPCC might be to try a novel approach to climate change reporting: The TRUTH.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Some climate scientists are calling for drastic changes in how future United Nations climate reports are done.
The proposals to reform the International Panel on Climate Change are published in Thursday’s issue of the journal Nature. The suggested changes come after four embarrassing but small errors have popped up recently in one of the panel’s four reports.
The climate change panel is working on its fifth set of reports, to be published in 2013. The panel won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for documenting climate change and projecting global warming’s future effects.
Besides telling the truth–even if the truth is “I don’t know what the hell is going on with the earth’s climate”–they should also stop trying to minimize the catastrophic errors they have committed. As this AP article clearly illustrates, they still want us to believe that their gross incompetence, like stating the Himalayan glaciers were going to melt in 25 years based on a magazine article, is just a small error.
