The world's leading organization on climate change says it is working on a strategy to better police the experts who produce its high-profile reports, to try to ensure they adhere to rigorous scientific standards.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change needs to "leave no stone unturned to come up with a set of measures so this can be ensured," Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the United Nations-sponsored organization, said.
Separately, the Met Office, a U.K. agency that does prominent weather and climate research, said it was proposing a new effort to improve temperature measurement.
The move by Mr. Pachauri and other IPCC leaders to step up oversight and enforcement of the panel's existing policies follows a string of revelations that have prompted criticism of the organization, which won a 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for its report that year concluding that climate change is "unequivocal" and is "very likely" caused by human activity.
"We certainly don't feel comfortable with the loss of even one iota of trust," Mr. Pachauri said. "We are grappling with this issue and we'll come up with some measures."

This burnt offering to say they will not make the same mistake again, sounds like a naughty child being caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
What we need is a complete disablement of the IPCC and a fresh look at the data by a separate body, it is the political agenda concerning "Man Made" Climate Change that will remain regardless of the IPCC being even more scrupulous with the reports put forward to them.
All the time the IPCC follow the spurious theory of "Man Made" Climate Change they will be left open to corruption from political activists.
The fact is CO2 does NOT drive temperatures, CO2 follows a warmer Earth from an active period of solar activity, how can the IPCC remain credible and impartial in this respect, when the science they follow is flawed.
