The management aspects had already been examined by Pachauri the previous year and he has now got approval for his proposals plus some more funding. They accepted what they wanted to accept and the issue of grey literature remains a grey area, but they obviously intend to carry on using it, whilst attempting better justification for its use.
The public impression is that the IAC was independent and gave the IPCC a kicking, but it is all smoke and mirors as usual. It will now be more difficult to get IPCC criticisms accepted, because they have been “investigated” and given “recommendations”, just like the CRU scientists.
