Comments on: UN panel once exaggerated costs of climate fight — by 1,000 times Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: WashingtonPest Sun, 29 Aug 2010 17:52:54 +0000 But there is a consistent bias. The IPCC reports are advocacy documents, not true assessments. They systematically present the arguments for human induced warming while carefully avoiding the equally compelling arguments and evidence against that hypothesis. This bias is precisely why they share the Peace Prize (an advocacy prize) with Gore. Real reform is probably impossible at this point. The IPCC is what it is, an advocacy enterprise. This fact is now well recognized, so less of a problem then it used to be.
