Al Gore has probably made a fortune on fear mongering about the alleged imminent disappearance of the Himalayan glaciers alone. But it’s just not happening:

The world’s greatest snow-capped peaks, which run in a chain from the Himalayas to Tian Shan on the border of China and Kyrgyzstan, have lost no ice over the last decade, new research shows.

The discovery has stunned scientists, who had believed that around 50bn tonnes of meltwater were being shed each year and not being replaced by new snowfall.

The study is the first to survey all the world’s icecaps and glaciers and was made possible by the use of satellite data. Overall, the contribution of melting ice outside the two largest caps – Greenland and Antarctica – is much less than previously estimated, with the lack of ice loss in the Himalayas and the other high peaks of Asia responsible for most of the discrepancy.

The Gore-endorsed UN climate science body had predicted the Himalayan glaciers would disappear by 2035, when instead it appears that the UN climate science body and Al Gore will be the ones to disappear by 2035.

What pisses me off most is that so far nobody has gone to jail over what is obviously the biggest and costliest scam in history.

    And just in time, Senator Jim Inhofe is releasing his book "The Great Hoax"

    Ed Morrisey at Hot Air has a good article on this … http://hotair.com/archives/2012/02/09/inhofe-only

    I've said as much for a long time. It is a crime, but a politically correct crime that hides a trillion dollar theft of wealth from first world nations and its people to the uber rich and the third world garbage heaps called nations.

    "What pisses me off most is that so far nobody has gone to jail over what is obviously the biggest and costliest scam in history."

    Who is going to arrest them? Regulators? Congress? Citizens arrest? Everywhere you look, the most corrupt among us are running things. I can't see how this ends well. Noseholding and wishing really, really hard isn't working and we seem to be out of ideas.

    Well then, that guy in Chile should be able to start harvesting Himalayan Ice for upper-crust bar cocktails.

    “First World” nations being defined as only those that have a “Democrat” or any other sort of “liberal” political party trying to rule and bleed off the national treasury and the public of its cash, launder it and divert it through unions, banks, mortgage companies, investment banks and other such 1% institutions into their coffers, and you can count those on one hand.

    I long for the day when the news comes out that Al has finally melted away.

    No one said we aren't equally frustrated over that. Hell, we have YET to get one high level Mortgage Fraud conviction, only nickel-dime players that lied on their loan application, multiple times.

    Do that and you could find yourself featured on 48 Hours or AMW. Steal a few cool $bil. like CountryWide's founder and you're on a golf course. But, just as is the case w/ the Housing Bubble, it doesn't mean we shouldn't continue to hound them for prosecution to the freaking grave.

    In ways, it truly was, the perfect crime.

    And we are recreating another mini-bubble in the very same way. Cash-out mortgages are rising rapidly at the same time people are again running up their credit cards. What are they buying? Toys like iPads and iPhones.

    I suspect that these are mostly the same people who are being bailed out on the liar loan mortgages and are cashing out to reload for the next bailout. And BTW, most of the people defending this bailout today didn't know whether or not there was a provision to exclude homeowners who received liar loans but they were confident that they were barred. In other words, the people fronting the PR didn't read the damn thing but ….. They ought to run for Congress.

    It's like Dick Bove said today (the guy finally says something intelligent), only fools pay their bills and act responsibly. Contract law is dead in America. This bailout is going to make foreclosures explode. What reason is there left for not walking away from your home?

    "It is awfully dangerous to take an eight-year record and predict even the next eight years, let alone the next century," he said.

    Well, why in the hell do you keep doing it then? You tell us that your research shows climate change and is to be trusted, but any research that contradicts yours is "dangerous."

    What a bunch of frauds, with their lying lips glued to the government teat.
