UN Climate Report Will ‘Scare Wits Out of Everybody’

In September, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will release its much-anticipated report on the latest global scientific consensus on man-made global warming, but last week The Economist magazine released a portion of the report that claimed to show a dip in the IPCC’s worst-case predictions.

Responding to the magazine’s treatment of the leaked portion of the study, however, scientists involved in the project called the story “misleading,” “contrived,” and “irresponsible” and warned the public not to jump to conclusions until the complete findings of the IPCC are revealed.

Former UN climate chief Yvo de Boer has said the conclusions of the final report will “scare the wits out of everybody”.
