"Policy-neutral" IPCC Vice-chair Jean-Pascal Van Ypersele re: his work on sustainable development with environment NGOs

Jean-Pascal Van Ypersele, Vice-chair, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

"I have been chairing the Energy and Climate Working Group of the Belgian Federal (advisory) Council for Sustainable Development since 1998. This has allowed me to practise consensus-building in a group with stakeholders of very diverse interests and opinions (including electricity producers, employers, trade unions, environment and development NGOs)."

I laugh every time I see his picture because he is a dead ringer for the Nazi in the Indiana Jones film whose face gets melted by the Ark Of The Covenant.

Environment and development NGOs are NOT stakeholders. His work on sustainable development is to create the illusion that NGOs should have a place at the table.
