He said he had been one of the IPCC report’s expert reviewers and that the report’s sea level rise acceleration scenarios aren’t credible. However, he said the draft makes the assumption that the IPCC is “the gold standard” for sea level rise information.

Everyone would agree I am sure that the IPCC should be objective and base their summaries on the scientific facts.  The real issue is what the IPCC and governments should do in light of these "not surprising" results?
