IPCC: new quality controls for next report

GENEVA (AP) -The group announced today a list of 831 experts from fields including meteorology, physics, oceanography, statistics,
engineering and economics.

The IPCC has been criticized for flaws in past reports. Among
the errors in the fourth report was the conclusion that Himalayan
glaciers would disappear as early as 2035 -- a date that's off by
hundreds of years.

An independent review of that 2007 report is currently under way.

One of the heads of the panel that will examine the impact of
climate change says the Himalayan entry was a "genuine mistake
made in good faith."

None of those who wrote the Asian section in the fourth report
are involved in the new report.
