Climate Science Advisory Dream Teams

As I mentioned last week, graduate students in my science and technology policy seminar are working on a unit on expert advisory committees. They have been divided into 3 groups with an assignment to empanel a scientific advisory committee on climate science, with a focus on IPCC Working Group I issues. you can see the assignment details here. Here are the links to their products:

Group 1 (PDF)
Group 2 (PDF)
Group 3 (PDF)

How did they do? Is one group's panel better than another? If so, why? Could you have done better? If so, please explain.

The class awaits your feedback.
