Warming panel, under attack, seeks outside review
Washington: The Nobel Prize-winning international scientific panel studying global warming is seeking independent outside review for how it makes major reports.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says it`s seeking some kind of independent review because of recent criticism about its 2007 reports.
Critics have found a few unsettling errors, including projections of retreats in Himalayan glaciers, in the thousands of pages of the reports.
The panel shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 with former Vice President Al Gore. The panel was created by the United Nations and the World Meteorological Organization.
A top panel official, Chris Field, said yesterday it will be hard finding an independent organization, such as a scientific society, to do the review.
