  • Climate change and the integrity of science

    We are deeply disturbed by the recent escalation of political assaults on scientists in general and on climate scientists in particular.

    The publication of false claims by the IPCC has been compounded by its imperious attitude, says professor of climate change Mike Hulme. The incorrect statement in the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that the Himalayan glaciers could completely disappear by 2035 is remarkable in many ways.
