Yet another needle is plunged into Al Gore’s balloon:
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.
Look for the IPCC to continue to do what comes natural to global warming “scientists”: Make claims laced with words like “probably,” “maybe,” “might,” and “conditionally imminent” and retract said claims when it’s clear the prediction won’t come to fruition (or somebody hacks their email and exposes the hoax), then repeat the process with some other fear-inducing catastrophe. If they get really desperate they’ll claim that global warming has gotten so bad that it’s causing Gorebot climatologists to lie their asses off.
Now that the Himalayan glaciers aren’t going to melt as claimed, are you still going to insist that “the science is settled,” Mr. Gore? … Mr. Gore?
