  1. Professor Tol did not resign from the IPCC. He is an author of the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) and will be credited as a coordinating lead author of Chapter 10 of the Working Group II contribution to AR5 when it is published later this year. He did withdraw last year from the team preparing the Working Group II Summary for Policymakers but he took an active part in the Working Group II meeting in Yokohama this March that finalized that Summary.
