Do IPCC NGO observers have silent non-functional mics?

In my previous post on the “transparent” behind closed doors gathering of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is now apparently running into overtime “deliberations”, one of the things I forgot to note was the rather conspicuous absence during each of the speeches of any mention of “members of civil society”.
