(or How we learned to hide the lack of Warming and still scare the Dickens out of the World)
What is it? Wikipedia explains:
“Approval” is the process used for IPCC Summaries for Policymakers (SPMs). Approval signifies that the material has been subject to detailed, line-by-line discussion, leading to agreement among the participating IPCC member countries, in consultation with the scientists responsible for drafting the report.

Approved Line by Line?
….the vast majority of the scientific research reflected in that document was funded by governments. As a result, the IPCC Summary for Policymakers presents only research efforts that adhere to the agendas of the political entities that financed it.Simply stated, the IPCC’s Summary for Policymakers was bought and paid for by politicians for political purposes.Climatologist Judith Curry: (former warmist) (link)
'How did they miss the fact that the pause is the most important issue in the public debate on climate science, for well over a year now?'
“The IPCC needs to get out of the way so that scientists and policy makers can better do their jobs,” Curry writes in her blog. “We need to put down the IPCC as soon as possible.”
Roger Pielke Jr. on IPCC: '
There is a big difference between saying 'we don’t know, emerging area of research” and 'nothing to see here, move along.

Climate Scientist Dr. John Christy:
73 UN Climate Models Wrong, No Global Warming in 17 Years.
Christy told CNSNews that he analyzed all 73 models used in the 5AR and not one accurately predicted that the Earth’s temperature would remain flat since Oct. 1, 1996. (See Temperatures v Predictions 1976-2013.pdf) - (Link)One problem with that conclusion, according to some climate scientists, is that the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has limited the hiatus to 10-15 years. Anastasios Tsonis, distinguished professor at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, believes the pause will last much longer than that. He points to repeated periods of warming and cooling in the 20th century.
“Each one of those regimes lasts about 30 years … I would assume something like another 15 years of leveling off or cooling,” (LINK)
