UN Climate Change Whopper

UN climate change says "The glaciers are melting!"

For a body that means to rule supreme over the governments and peoples of the world in the name of Climate Change, you’d think the United Nation’s Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) would at least try and get its year and date right about an alleged impending disaster of earth-shaking proportions.

The IPCC had issued a dire warning that, in a mere 20 years, the Himalayan glaciers could melt to a fifth of current level by the year 2035. 

The Himalayas hold the planet’s largest body of ice outside the polar caps — an estimated 12,000 cubic kilometres of water. Melted ice from the Himalayas feed many of the world’s great rivers — the Ganges, the Indus, the Brahmaputra — on which hundreds of millions of people depend. But the IPCC claims that “Glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world and, if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate.” That would be disastrous for three quarters of a billion people in Asia who now depend on glacier melt for their water supplies.

The only problem is that the BBC reports on Dec 5, 2009, that the IPCC’s dire prediction is “wildly inaccurate.” J Graham Cogley, a professor at Ontario Trent University, says the IPCC got the date from an earlier report wrong by more than 300 years, “misreading 2350 as 2035“!
