The Global Warming community has faced at least 19 scandals in the past few months, which is why the IPCC is now facing an "independent" review by the InterAcademy Council (IAC). What is shocking is that the review will not challenge man-made Global Warming and will not look at the scientific data.
"It will definitely not go over vast amounts of data," Robert Dijksgraaf, the head of the InterAcademy Council told reporters. "Our goal will be to assure nations around the world that they will receive sound scientific advice on climate science."
Dijksgraaf said the review is going to be looking at the peer-review process, steps to becoming a more transparent organization, and what qualifies as a source for the 2014 report.
The IAC is a partner of the UNEP and World Bank, both which have close ties to IPCC's chairman Dr. Rajendra Pachauri and the IPCC. This may be why the review is so forward focused, refusing to see the flaws that scar the IPCC's reputation.
One must question if the IAC will be able to be objective when the review's conclusion may threaten the organization's own reports supporting Global Warming.
