I was in Boulder last week and I spoke to Susan. We agreed that the only way IPCC can work is the collegiate way it did with AR4.
These people know they are losing (or have lost) on the science. They are now
going for the process. All you need to do is to make sure all in AR5 are aware
of the process and that they adhere to it. We all did with AR4, but these people
read much more into the IPCC procedures.
See you in Venice
