Another Climate Change Blunder…Himalayan glaciers & 2035

Why am I not surprised. Blah, Blah, Global Warming, Blah, Blah ~ That’s all it is I’ve been saying for years that we have little information on global warming and the effects of the environment, remember they once thought the world was flat for years and years.

A WARNING that climate change will melt most of the Himalayan glaciers by 2035 is likely to be retracted after a series of scientific blunders by the United Nations body that issued it.

Two years ago the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a benchmark report that was claimed to incorporate the latest and most detailed research into the impact of global warming. A central claim was the world’s glaciers were melting so fast that those in the Himalayas could vanish by 2035. In the past few days the scientists behind the warning have admitted that it was based on a news story in the New Scientist, a popular science journal, published eight years before the IPCC’s 2007 report.

A news story?? They based it on a news story??

It has also emerged that the New Scientist report was itself based on a short telephone interview with Syed Hasnain, a little-known Indian scientist then based at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.

Hasnain has since admitted that the claim was “speculation” and was not supported by any formal research.

FAIL!!!!

Somewhere across town Danny Glover is having a prozac melt down.
