Energy Committee


MPs on the Energy and Climate took evidence on the IPCC's 5th Assessment Review on 11 February 2014.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is an international body for the assessment of climate change.

Its aim is to provide the world with a scientific view on the current state of climate change knowledge and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts.

The inquiry is exploring the latest conclusions of the IPCC, the extent to which the conclusions are robust, and their impact on national and international policy making.

The witnesses were:

• Sir Peter Williams, Royal Society

• Dr Emily Shuckburgh, Royal Meteorological Society

• Guy Newey, Policy Exchange,

• Jonathan Grant, PricewaterHouse Coopers

• James Painter, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford.
