The IPCC is being reviewed by the Interacademy Council (which represents dozens of national science academies). And they're taking public comment. This might be a good chance to get some improvements. The comments form is at:
If you can't think of anything, here's what I wrote:
- The IPCC needs to report more frequently. Interim reports, or even annual updates would be very useful.
- More focus on possible tipping points. Especially estimates of sea-level rise from glacial melt, and estimates of non-linear responses to warming.
- More transparency with the process - especially which representatives are making which changes to the finial release.
- Stop being so conservative. Offer an your analysis, and be prepared to defend it when it gets attacked by the fossil fuel lobby and governments.
- Work with science communicators. Create a lay-person's version of the report.

Can I just say what a relief
Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
