That should read: IPCC admits Fourth Assessment Report based on false data–apologizes to world for wasting billions of dollars
Once again, the IPCC was proven WRONG on a major issue regarding its claim that the probability of glaciers in the Himalayas “disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high.” in the Fourth Assessment Report. In fact, the scientist that initially informed the IPCC of the glaciers disappearing, immediately retracted his statement after he issued it, months before the Fourth Assessment Report came out back in 2007. They had ample time to take it out, but I suppose the exposed Himalayas was a great mental image, not to be wasted.
The Fourth Assessment Report said the evidence for global warming was now “unequivocal,” the chief source for it was man-made and there were already signs, of which glacial melt was one. It was this publication that kicked the world into action and implement carbon caps, carbon trading schemes, and greenhouse gas reductions in nearly every developed nation in the world.
The IPCC is only now launching a probe, three years after the fact, and quickly adds that “the evidence of the report remained incontrovertible. I am careful in saying this, because immediately people will again engage in IPCC bashing, which would be wrong.” (Georg Kaser of the Geography Institute at Austria’s University of Innsbruck). Three years later, the damage has been done. Billions upon billions of dollars have been wasted as a result of this fraudulent report.
Once again the media mainly ignores this fact, and even if the Ottawa Citizen reports on it, the article is strewn with “Attack by skeptics” and “hacked emails” and “IPCC bashing”. Even the headline does not reflect badly on the IPCC: UN climate body to probe Himalayan glacier forecast. I could have come up with a more accurate headline, say: IPCC admits Fourth Assessment Report based on false data–apologizes to world for wasting billions of dollars.
I am getting pretty tired of this Global Warming crowd: time after time they have been proven to fudge the numbers, lie, cheat, make up numbers, manipulate global temperature data and yet half the world still follows them blindly.
It’s time our own government puts a stop to this sham, and stop following anything the IPCC or UN does on the climate front.
This is getting rediculous.
