    The dissent is not about the substance of the findings. It concerns the tone of the "executive summary" which is the agreed interpretation of what should be implemented to deal with or avoid all of the effects listed later in the BBC piece.

    That's the reason an economist was involved in its drafting. It's a bit like the same findings could result in the Surgeon General either recommending tobacco use should be "discouraged" or "prohibited by a Constitutional Amendment".

    "Come to Sochi, visit the gay clubs and play with the bears" - NOT a Russian advertising slogan.
