The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) website claims that it is a “policy-neutral, never policy-prescriptive” organization. But that is not how its senior personnel behave. Not even close. One possible response to climate change is to do nothing in the short term. After all, scientific authority is looking rather bedraggled at the moment. It seems that
