IPCC conclusions 'still very strong'


The chairman of the UN's climate science body, Rajendra Pachauri, has said he will not resign over its discredited claims that glaciers in the Himalayas will melt by 2035.

The Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has also faced criticism over a claim that global warming is linked to worsening natural disasters.

Professor Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, vice chair of the IPCC, told Sarah Montague that the IPCC had gained credibility from its ability to admit its mistakes and argued that the other claims in the report were "very strong".
