"There is a clear conflict of interest in the preparation of the IPCC and CCSP reports. The lead authors are individuals who are assessing their own research. There need to be new Committees convened which can provide a more objective assessment of climate, including the human role within it. Unless this is done, we are doomed to a continued repetition of the same information, which is misleading the public and policymakers with respect to what policy actions should be taken with respect to climate."
