Glaciergate a Good Sequel to Climategate

More bad news for the Church of Global Warming and Pope Al Gore. As a sequel to Climategate, we now have "Icegate" or "Glaciergate." January 19, 2010 [Australia] -The Australian revealed yesterday the claims by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were based on the work of a lone Indian scientist. "The bottom line is the IPCC report is wrong," said Ian Allison, a glaciologist with Hobart's Australian Antarctic Division and president of the International Association of Cryosphere Sciences, whose members study Earth's icy surfaces. Golly! More bad science from the "experts?" Sure, why not? They've given us so much bad science already, a little bit more is actually welcome. It just reinforces those of us who've been anticipating this for so long. The Australian followed the report above with this editorial: The news that the key report driving global policy on climate change used a throwaway line in a popular science magazine to suggest some Himalayan glaciers could disappear in 25 years reads like a Monty Python skit. This "icegate" scandal is potentially far more damaging to climate change science than the recent discovery of embarrassing emails from the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. Those emails reveal a robust advocacy of global warming on the part of scientists but no evidence that this compromised their scientific work. Even so, taken together, these scandals underline the need for scientists to be rigorous in their processes and realistic in their claims.
