The article discusses the author's comment concerning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientific report for 1990, 1995, 2001, and 2007. The author has expressed disagreement on report citing that it was inappropriate as no model had ever been validated and there seem to be no attempt to do so. He pointed out that the 2007 report was the most distasteful because it has unreliable data, inadequate statistical treatment and gross exaggeration of model capacity.
