Glacier of mistake

The IPCC Chief, R K Pachauri has declared that he has no plans to resign over the so called "Glacier Mistake". Why should you ? Mr Pachauri, when others are allowed to continue with "Mountain of Mistakes".

While admitting the mistake as 'human error', the IPCC Chief has assured that adequate care would be taken in the furure. Why was it not taken earlier ?

The image of IPCC has received a dent. It is quite possible that the reports produced by IPCC shall be viewed with suspicion in the future, however 'robust' they may be claimed, for all of us know that a 'mistake' is known only when it is 'detected'.
