Rajendra K. Pachauri on climate science and the IPCC

Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chairperson for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, discusses how the process of intense peer review in IPCC report production, while it slows down the process, is extremely necessary in gaining trust from politicians. He voices concern for advocacy for action on the science the IPCC collects. He claims the IPCC does not have the time or resources to advocate for climate action and encourages others to take the sound science they have collected and spread awareness about it.
