The Himalayan Glaciers have been melting for 12,000 (twelve thousand) years, on and off. And yet we have been terrified into believing that we are causing this to happen through our dirty and selfish over use of industrial carbon emissions, spewing into the atmosphere.
Ask any school child today about the retreat of our glaciers, and they will ‘parrot’ the IPCC’s story that we humans are killing the planet, and that all the glaciers will have melted away by 2035 if we don’t ‘clean up our act’ and reduce carbon emissions. The children, just like the rest of us, have been indoctrinated.
Dare to challenge these facts and you could end up being burnt at the stake, branded a Climate Skeptic or sent to ‘Coventry’.
In the last few days the scientists behind the warning that the Himalayan Glaciers WILL melt 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.
It has also emerged that the New Scientist report was itself based on a short telephonic interview with Syed Hasnain, an Indian scientist then based at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
Hasnain has since admitted that the claim was a “speculation” and was not supported by any formal research, the report added. Full story available here.
Oh my goodness the FACT that the glaciers are melting and will vanish by 2035 – was just a speculative claim? So does that mean we will get an apology from the IPCC? I seem to remember that the The IPCC was set up to ensure that world leaders had the best possible scientific advice on climate change. Best possible speculation more like it – that, in my book, does not qualify as science!
From Climategate to Glaciergate!
Also, interestingly, Dr. Hasnain, the scientist whose initial speculation wound up being cited as unequivocal scientific fact by the IPCC, is now head of the glacier research team at an Indian environmental think-tank run by Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the IPCC.
Indian government scientists helping to assemble the IPCC’s 2007 report warned the Himalayan glacier claim was shaky. They told the UN their own research showed comparatively little glacial retreat. But the IPCC ignored them. Zealots never want to be confused by the facts.
Just ME in T says:
Learn that you are being used, abused and manipulated by the UN.
Now they don’t have any ‘axe to grind’ do they? No profit margin to work towards?
