Just in Case Anyone Thought the IPCC Was About Science
Posted by greg2213 on June 15, 2013
Well it’s been pretty obvious to anyone who are, for quite some time, that the IPC is about Politics first, agenda second. There’s the scientific report and then there’s the summary report, which is what the Pols of the various countries see. This has nothing to do with the science.
According to those who’ve attended similar meetings, “every sentence” will be projected onto a screen “in front of representatives of more than 100 governments” who will then argue about it. Eventually, these political animals will collectively negotiate wording that everyone can live with. Then they will move on to the next sentence.
Yes, you read that right. The exact phrasing of what is supposed to be a summary of scientific evidence will be determined not by scientists but via political negotiations.
Unfortunately, this will convince no one who is in any position of influence or who already sees the IPCC as the second coming of Al Gore.
