World off course on climate; renewables vital | Eco-Business
“We’re not on the right track,” [IPCC climate hoax head Pachauri] told the June 13-15 Reuters Energy and Climate Summit in a telephone interview, adding “we are far away from” a path of least cost in slowing global warming.Flashback: Look at "How authorized spokespersons should represent the IPCC"
Pachauri, an Indian citizen, said the outlook was not all gloom if governments designed policies to promote cleaner energies such as wind, solar, geothermal and hydropower.
Stronger policies to promote a shift from fossil fuels “could bring about fairly rapid movement in the right direction … One expects that there could be some kind of snowballing effect,” he said.
“Renewables are already viable in a number of applications,” he said. At some level of promotion such as government regulation, subsidies or feed-in tariffs of minimum prices, a shift from fossil fuels could become self-sustaining.
“It’s essentially a question of policies by which the world starts moving in the right direction,” he said. “We have the means, we have the technologies.”
How authorized spokespersons should represent the IPCC
The ability of IPCC spokespersons to provide neutral and objective statements that are grounded in the assessments reports and other products adopted by the Panel will be essential to preserving the trust and confidence placed in the IPCC by decision-makers and other key audiences. Authorized spokespersons should act in accordance with the guiding principles that have been set out for IPCC communications, most notably maintaining policy neutrality, scientific balance, and refraining from, or being perceived as advocating or communicating personal views on climate policy while speaking in their official IPCC capacity.
