U.N. Admits Glacier Melting Based on Bad Science

I'm getting tired of repeating myself: The Global Warming freaks are wrong, wrong, wrong and the evidence just keeps coming out to prove it. The panic over glacier melting, for example, which has people losing sleep over the fate of the Himilayan snow pack, has been greatly exaggerated and was based on ... nothing. The United Nations even admits to this now: GENEVA - Jan. 20, 2010 (AP) - A U.N. warning that Himalayan glaciers were melting faster than any other place in the world and may be gone by 2035 was not backed up by science, U.N. climate experts said Wednesday — an admission that could energize climate change critics. (AP report via To say that this "could energize climate change critics" is a huge understatement. It just adds one more bomb to the arsenal of information that "skeptics" have to combat the hyper-panic propaganda of the Environmentalist Left and Church of Global Warming. The AP report continues: In a 2007 report, the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said the Himalayan glaciers are very likely to disappear within three decades if the present melting rate continues. But a statement from the panel now says there is not enough scientific evidence to back up those claim. In fact, glacier shrinkage seems to be the opposite of what is really happening in the Himilayas. In May, 2009 a Discovery News report noted this: Among legendary peaks of Mt. Everest like K2 and Nanga Parbat, glaciers with a penthouse view of the world are growing, and have been for almost three decades. Growing? For about 30 years? Really? Does Al Gore tell you about that? Late last year, "Climategate" revealed that there is not enough evidence to back up claims of man-made climate warming, that evidence of just the opposite has been suppressed, and that the "evidence" of any temperature shift upward was either fabricated or exaggerated. This latest blow to the credibility of Al Gore and his band of lying liars should - in a more rational world - be enough to finally put the subject to rest. Unfortunately, the global warming/climate change argument has been so emotionalized and politicized that the panic continues among the ignorant. The liars have already done their damage. AP reports that "The U.N. climate change panel said 'the chair, vice-chairs, and co-chairs of the IPCC regret the poor application of well-established IPCC procedures in this instance.'" Meanwhile, governments are imposing expensive and punitive laws based on bad science and outright lies. As long as the U.N. is apologizing, how about a mea culpa from Al Gore? Will Gore be asked to return his Nobel prize? Will the next Copenhagen climate conference be based on reality, or on more junk "science?"
