Lost in the coverage1 of the so-called climategate email controversy2 is a key point about the IPCC’s track record of climate change estimates. James McCarthy is on the faculty3 of the Harvard Medical School Center for Health and the Global Environment. He spoke4 February 21st at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement5 of Science in San Diego:

 

“If you were to go back and map the IPCC projection6 for sea level rise and temperature in 1990, look at it in 1995, look at it in 2000. In retrospect7 you would find that they were conservative. So we talk about errors. If you were to do two ledgers—here are IPCC overestimates10, here are IPCC underestimates—over the 20 or so years that these assessments11 have been running, the underestimate ledger8 would be much larger than the overestimate9. Even with glitches—clearly erroneous editing or sloppy12 editing that led to these erroneous statements that got us in trouble recently.”
