Guardian reports IPCC admission it exaggerated glacier melt

Just kidding with the banner
– but is the media bias melting?

You know the end is nigh for any dishonest movement when its leading liars are forced to resort to truth-telling.

It was the same in the dying days of Soviet communism when Gorbachev confessed that his country had been living a lie.

The surprise with this story about exaggerated Himalayan glacier melting is not that the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change would present science fiction as fact.

That’s old news.

What’s new news is that Britain’s blinkered left-wing Guardian would do the honest thing and report it.

Is liars too strong a word to describe those who’ve deceived the world into believing they needed to divert $45 trillion to fix a non-problem?

Read this excerpt and see what you think:

(Pachauri is bagging the Indian government geologist who exposed the error.)

At the time, the chairman of the IPCC, Rajendra Pachauri [like Al Gore, a carbon-trading multi-millionaire], dismissed the report as not peer-reviewed [guess which peers would do his reviewing?] and said: “With the greatest of respect this guy retired years ago and I find it totally baffling that he comes out and throws out everything that has been established years ago.” 

Fair enough, I guess, since it’s a well-known fact that all retired people are senile. 

So let’s see what one of Pachauri’s own guys says: 

Georg Kaser, an expert in tropical glaciology at the University of Innsbruck in Austria and a lead author for the IPCC, said he had warned that the 2035 prediction was clearly wrong in 2006, months before the report was published.

Oh goodness gracious me, as they say in Mr Pachauri’s homeland.

“This [date] is not just a little bit wrong, but far out of any order of magnitude,” he said.

Indeed it is. The real date for predicted glacier meltdown was not 2035. It was 2350.

In other words, not 25 years from now, but 340 years from now.

To put that in perspective, 2350 is as far in the future as 1670 was in the past.

(And before you selflessly justify diverting $45 trillion to restore water to the parched peasants of 2350, do you know what your ancestors were doing back in 1670? Shivering in the Little Ice Age.)

But back to the IPCC fabrications:  

“All the responsible people are aware of this weakness in the fourth assessment. All are aware of the mistakes made,” he said.

So the IPCC made a mistake, found the mistake, and published the mistake as fact.

Hoping you wouldn’t notice.

Liars too strong a word? I don’t think so.

The same people now ask you to believe that the rest of their report is as pure as the driven snow.

I’d say their case is melting as fast as the glaciers aren’t.
