IPCC linked to Match Fixing in Test Cricket

As part of the ongoing purge of corruption in the IPCC, the Weekend Australian has identified the link to match fixing by the Pakistani cricket team. Realizing that ICC is almost identical to IPCC, the editorial the-limits-of-pan-nationalism notes that "The failings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the International Cricket Council highlight the potential for incompetence and corruption on the part of unelected bodies".

The editorial concludes "Until the IPCC and ICC become transparent and accountable to stakeholder nations, their effectiveness will remain limited." Since the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, is, as its name indicates, a panel appointed by national governments, the challenge of making these people
more accountable to the stakeholder nations is indeed formidable. The contribution of the Weekend Australian builds on their unique insights into the lack of confidence in the IPCC having actively worked to create this.
