Second IPCC AR5 WGI Lead Authors' Meeting

David Holland made this Freedom of Information request to British Antarctic Survey

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by British Antarctic Survey.

Dear British Antarctic Survey,

Second IPCC AR5 WGI Lead Authors' Meeting

You are no doubt aware of the UNECE Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters (the Aarhus Convention), with which Council Directive 2003/4/EC requires our Environmental Information Regulations 2004 to be consistent.

The process of IPCC Fifth Assessment of the science, impacts and mitigation, of climate change, in which you as a public authority are engaged, is one of the most important environmental decision-making processes of all and in which I wish to exercise my rights. Accordingly I am asking for exact copies of all the information held by you as a result of the participation of your employees in the Second Lead Authors Meeting (LA2), 18-22 July 2011, at Brest, France.

In particular, but without prejudicing my rights to all the information I wish to have an exact copy of what is referred to as the zero order draft of the AR5 WGI Assessment Report, together with the comments on of its reviewers and a list of their names.

I believe that strictly speaking this environmental information is of such public interest and importance that under EIR regulation 4 you should proactively disseminate it by electronic means and I will be satisfied with a link to where it is held in your publication scheme.

Yours faithfully,

David Holland
