IPCC Chair Pachauri on the forthcoming Fourth Assessment Report


At the annual conference of the parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change and Kyoto Protocol, being held in Nairobi the past two weeks, Rajendra K. Pachauri, chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, gave an interview on the forthcoming IPCC Fourth Assessment Report, the comprehensive and most authoritative scientific assessment of the currrent state of knowledge.  Dr. Pachauri said the IPCC report “might provide just the right impetus to get the negotiations going in a more purposeful way….There’s much stronger evidence now of human actions on the change in climate that’s taken place,” Pachauri told The Associated Press.  In our November 7 post we wrote on “Anticipating the denialist attack on authors of the IPCC climate change assessment.”  Watch out, Dr. Pachauri.
