"The real story isn't the science - it's why as the science has got stronger and stronger, the politics has got weaker and weaker".

John Ashton, special representative on climate change, interviewed on the BBC Today programme the day of the IPCC report, also said that climate change is not a technology problem, it's a political problem.

The BBC couldn't find one workng UK scientist in the field of climate change who was a sceptic to provide "balance".
