There has been no let up with the debate on Climate Change and the Global Warming Scandal that seems to be ignored on the most part by mainstream media. Yet today there has been another devastating blow to the IPCC and one of their most important claims that the Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035.
The IPCC has been forced to admit that the claim made was actually taken from an article published in 1999. The article was based around a telephone interview with an Indian scientist who has admitted that he was working from pure speculation and his claims were not backed by research. Adding more embarrassment to the whole story is the fact that it seems to have been nothing more than a group of 10 authors misreading a date and bring that melting glaciers forward by more than 300 years.
Astonishingly, this 300 year mistake seems to have escaped notice by the IPCC and they ran with this as one of their key claims. Considering the fact that the IPCC was set up by the United Nations to ensure that the worlds leaders had the latest and best scientific evidence available, it seems almost absurd that a mistake like this could be allowed to go unnoticed and then allowed to become a key claim for the Global Warming Scandal.
It’s the latest news to hit the headlines and throws yet more negative light on the IPCC who are still feeling the effects of the Climategate emails that were leaked to the public last year.
