dc.description.abstract <p>The word “consensus” does not appear <em>in</em> the first report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change back in 1989. It appears prominently, however, when scientists associated with Working Group I <em>represented</em> the report’s findings to the public. This early commitment to “consensus” talk legitimated opponents’ attacks on the existence of a scientific consensus, locked the scientific community in to defending a rigid position, and lead the public debate in unhelpful directions for twenty years. There were alternatives.</p>
