ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He argues that the community should have analysis on models and projections concerning various issues including emissions or mitigation, while IPCC should summarize the literature. The lack of global uniform coverage of earth observation systems is also discussed.
