The UN Secretary-General's behaviour has many wondering if he is suitable for the job. His latest babble about climate change has riled more than 125 climate experts who probably think he is not up to the job. They wrote him an open letter:

We the undersigned, qualified in climate-related matters, wish to state that current scientific knowledge does not substantiate your assertions.
