I trusted the IPCC’s website when it listed the lead authors of one of its chapters. If that list is wrong am I the party who hasn’t been careful?
If climate change is the biggest challenge facing humanity, why have kids filled senior IPCC roles for the past 15 years?
When Laurens Bouwer served as a lead author for the 2001 climate bible he had not yet earned his Masters.
The IPCC surely needs to explain how research assistants and those-working-on-their-masters qualify as the world’s best experts and top scientists.
A new IPCC press release says “thousands of scientists” contribute to the climate bible. But a list of authors selected to take part in the upcoming edition contains only 831 names.
Among these is Lisa Alexander. She began writing IPCC reports a decade before she’d even earned her PhD.
