It is confirmed IPCC not a scientific body

Let’s face it, we are an intergovernmental body and our strength and acceptability of what we produce is largely because we are owned by governments. If that was not the case, then we would be like any other scientific body that maybe producing first-rate reports but don’t see the light of the day because they don’t matter in policy-making. Now clearly, if it’s an inter-governmental body and we want governments’ ownership of what we produce, obviously they will give us guidance of what direction to follow, what are the questions they want answered. IPCC Head Rajendra Pachauri.

And let's not forget about the Guessing.. Pachauri " You really don't have a quantitative base by which you can attach a probability or a level of uncertainty that defines things in quantitative terms'
