There is some interesting information, particularly in the Q&A part. For example, in  a question from Congressman Whitfield:

Mr. Whitfield: I know that you can pick out isolated events in anything, but you hear this so frequently with IPCC, it is disserving in many ways. So just yes or no, on the IPCC in general, do you have confidence in what they are doing?Dr. Somerville.

Mr. Somerville. I certainly do have confidence, very isolated instances.

Mr. Whitfield: Dr. Christy?

Mr. Christy. Yes and no.

Mr. Whitfield. Yes, no, oK. Dr. Field?

Mr. Field. Yes, I have confidence.

Mr. Whitfield. Dr. Pielke?

Mr. Whitfield. Dr. Zwiers?

Mr. Zwiers. Yes.

Mr. Whitfield: Dr. Nadelhoffer?

Mr. Nadelhoffer. As a reviewer of IPCC reports, I have confidence.

Mr. Whitfield. OK. Do you have a comment, Dr. Roberts?
