The head of the IPCC, railroad engineer Rajendra Pachauri, plans to step down in 2015.
I don’t know why he is waiting that long. When the next report is released next week the IPCC is likely to be finished. It is very doubtful the UN will get the funds to do another, especially as it appears that a lot of scientists are very disenchanted with how this political process has been warping the science.
