In the video to the right, BBC’s Andrew Neil grills Chief Scientist at the Department for the Environment, Professor Robert Watson on the many many mistakes in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [1]‘s 2007 report [2].

As the Wall Street Journal has documented, in just the past year the IPCC’s 2007 report has been exposed for overstating the science on glacier loss in the Himalayas, crop loss in Africa, Amazon rain forest depletion and damage from weather catastrophes [3]. No wonder the government of India it says they “cannot rely” on the IPCC [4] and has established their own body to monitor the effects of global warming.
