One hour ago, FoxNews that has become the #1 up-to-date U.S. source of the information about the climate issues revealed that:
Rajendra Pachauri and Vijay Kelkar in Delhi.
FoxNews presents no details. It just suggests that they might get inspired by similar plans of Met Office to start from scratch which were described by FoxNews yesterday.
The article writes some details about the numerous IPCC "gates" and quotes Steve McIntyre who finds it unlikely that the same people know how to reform the institution, and I completely share his skepticism.
I have been thinking about these events in analogy with the fall of communism. It's clear that the same people couldn't create a new "communism with a human face" because they simply didn't have a human face.
Moreover, the very ideas and goals they wanted to preserve were almost the same ones that led to the loss of credibility. This is a point that even Dr Judith Curry seems to mostly misunderstand.
Climate alarmism, much like communism, can't really be reformed. The basic ideals of communism - people "voluntarily" working for others and harmonically saying that it's how the society should work - can only be defended with a violent police system that suppressed human rights and freedoms.
In a similar way, climate alarmism's vitally important technique is to keep people in ignorance and to hide the real data because the real data - and people's knowledge about them - automatically leads to the destruction of the panic, and the evaporation of the very motivation for the IPCC's existence.
The truth about the climate is simply not scary. It's the main reason why the only sensible thing that a reformed IPCC could say would be the statement that the institution doesn't have to exist.
The Telegraph is describing the prepared meeting in Bali where the "reforms" could be sketched. Geoffrey Lean also tells us that while the EU publicly says that Pachauri has "done a good job, in general", they privately want him to go before long.
