U.N. climate panel agrees reforms; Pachauri stays | Reuters

(Reuters) - The U.N. panel of climate scientists agreed on Thursday to push ahead with reforms after errors in a 2007 report and chairman Rajendra Pachauri rejected suggestions he should step down.

The panel said after an October 11-14 meeting in Busan, South Korea, that it would tighten checks for errors and set up a "task force" to agree wider reforms by mid-2011 such as an overhaul of the panel's management.

"Change and improvement are vital to the IPCC," Pachauri told a telephone news conference.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been under pressure after errors in its 2007 report, including a projection that Himalayan glaciers could all melt by 2035 -- centuries before the worst-case thaw.
