Another IPCC Blunder

Topics: Climate Change, Environment

ipcc1.jpgAs is so often the case, the IPCC's sources once again turn out to be far less than stellar (Hat tip - Tim Blair):

The UN panel on climate change warning that Himalayan glaciers could melt to a fifth of current levels by 2035 is wildly inaccurate, an academic says.

J Graham Cogley, a professor at Ontario Trent University, says he believes the UN authors got the date from an earlier report wrong by more than 300 years.

He is astonished they "misread 2350 as 2035". The authors deny the claims.

Leading glaciologists say the report has caused confusion and "a catalogue of errors in Himalayan glaciology".

This is not the first time they've used Greenpeace. Anthony Watts reviews the latest IPCC farce. As it turns out, not only is the information wrong by 350 years (as though someone can actually predict an event in nature that far out) the IPCC report was actually written by a Greenpeace campaigner as a Lead Author and there's no independent science to back it up.
