MORE CLIMATE CHANGE BOLLOCKS

THE NEW CLIMATE CHANGE SCANDAL

 

Glacier melt claims were 'speculation
Fresh doubts were cast over controversial global warming theories yesterday after a major climate change argument was discredited.

The International Panel on Climate Change was forced to admit its key claim that Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035 was lifted from a 1999 magazine article. The report was based on an interview with a little-known Indian scientist who has since said his views were “speculation” and not backed up by research.

It was also revealed that the IPCC’s controversial chairman, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, described as “the world’s top climate scientist”, is a former railway engineer with a PhD in economics and no formal climate science qualifications. Pachauri was yesterday accused of a conflict of interest after it emerged he has a network of business interests that attract millions of pounds in funding thanks to IPCC policies. One of them, The Energy Research Institute, has a London office and is set to receive up to £10million from British taxpayers over the next five years in the form of grants from the Department for International Development. Pachauri denies any conflict of interest arising from his various roles.

Yesterday, critics accused the IPCC of boosting the man-made global warming theory to protect a multi-million pound industry. Climate scientist Peter Taylor said: “I am not surprised by this news. A vast bureaucracy and industry has been built up around this theory. There is too much money in it for the IPCC to let it wither.” Professor Julian Dowdeswell, a glacier specialist at Cambridge University, said: “The average glacier is 1,000ft thick so to melt one even at 15ft a year would take 60 years. That is a lot faster than anything we are seeing now so the idea of losing it all by 2035 is unrealistically high.” (I'd have said "fucking ridiculous", myself!)

The scientists behind the report now admit they relied on a news story published in the New Scientist journal in 1999. The article was based on a short telephone interview with scientist Syed Hasnain, then based in Delhi, who has since said his views were “speculation”. The New Scientist report was picked up by the WWF and included in a 2005 paper. It then became a key source for the IPCC which went further in suggesting the melting of the glaciers was “very likely”.

Yesterday, Professor Murari Lal who oversaw the chapter on glaciers in the IPCC report, said: “If Hasnain says officially that he never asserted this, or that it is a wrong presumption, then I will recommend that the assertion about Himalayan glaciers be removed from future IPCC assessments.” ("recommend"?.....it's a fucking no-brainer!)

Last year the Indian government issued its own scientific research rejecting the notion that glaciers were melting so rapidly. Before the weakness in the IPCC’s research was exposed, Dr Pachauri dismissed the Indian government report as “voodoo science”. The revelations are the latest crack to appear in the scientific consensus on climate change.
 



CUNTS!

Fair play to  the Daily Express  :)  for giving this report so much prominance but none of those charges are exactly news to We Deniers, Lord Monckton assured us that the Himalayan glaciers were "just fine" in his famous Minnesota speech.

I believe that the Indian Government is holding some sort of enquiry into Dr Rajendra Pachauri, the evil engineer, centreing on the conflict of interests between his businesses and his position within the discredited IPCC :-P , the cunt.

Great post BS!  I agree with Banned - nothing new here but good on the Express for yet again highlighting it.  It's so important to keep up the pressure on the perpetrators of this lie.  Did you see this Tweet today?

Barking Spider said...

Quite bloody right too! lol

Barking Spider said...

I agree, Banned, but every bit helps to keep it in the public eye, this was well placed on the front page, too - I looked for the article last night but they hadn't posted it at that stage, even though it was aggravatingly visible, if unreadable, on their front page shot. >:o

I doubt very much that the Indian inquiry will be as squeamish and "old boy network" as British inquiries when it comes to apportioning blame! :-P

Barking Spider said...

Thanks for the pic, btw, saved for future reference. ;)

Barking Spider said...

I've seen it now, TP, now that's really funny - the Labour lot just can't let go of it in their quest for domination! :-D

I agree with you and Banned, too, but you can never tell the public too often, especially now that a healthy level of scepticism is starting to emerge. ;)

Wouldn't it be nice, for a change, if so called scientists acted like scientists. If you remember back in your school days something called the scientific method. These people have no idea what it is ...

scientific method
noun
a method of procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses.

With you all the way, there, Odie, scientists used to be respected because they were simply sooo pedantic about proving their theories before they announced anything. Nowadays, it's all about what the fucking government of the day funds them to say! It will be a very long time - Hell might even have frozen over - before a word they say can ever be taken at face value again!

Yet another institution destroyed by fucking, cunting, lying, bastarding "socialists" - let's string the fucking, cunting, bastarding cunts up from the nearest lampposts - with piano wire! >:o

Barking Spider said...

Little by little the truth will prevail.  It's disgusting that the global warming lie has been propagated by "speculation" (like this Indian guy admits) and things like Climategate.  Billions of dollars spent on a lie...heaven help us. O:-)

Barking Spider said...

Oh, I forgot...I'm linking to you over at the Facebook page.
Thanks for posting this information.
Hope all is well with you BTW.

Barking Spider said...

Imagine that, another lying thieving "climate scientists"   aka a cunt, making up global warming stuff to get TONS of money from the taxpayers!  great post, Spider.  That "dr." needs to be prosecuted for FRAUD!

PS:  You are decorating your page with such wonderful widgets!  I really like that Squirrel....he is very smart, I wouldn't want to have him mad at me  ;)

Barking Spider said...

They are on the run, now, TCL, next step is that the instigators and perpetrators end up in court - and then jail! Bastards!! :-P

Barking Spider said...

Thanks, TCL, much appreciated. :)

Barking Spider said...

I wouldn't want to mess with his nuts, Bunni! :-D

Barking Spider said...

Basing a policy on speculation is a tad reminiscent of Blair going to war with Iraq, based on a student's essay found on the Internet!

Barking Spider said...

The Express have stepped outside of the box frequently in the last month or so. Might they have discovered that pissing off your readers does not bring in revenue?

Barking Spider said...

Are glaciers melting, you bet they are! Are new glaciers being formed, you bet they are! Are lies being told by radical environmentalist, you bet they are! Will the world end tomorrow, who the hell knows!

Barking Spider said...

There has been a massive increase in Antarctic ice in the past decade, Ron, except for the one relatively small area that the AGW brigade constantly quote in their biased reports. >:o

Totally agree, mate, they are shit at predicting tomorrow's weather, so it stands to reason that they are even more shit at predicting long-term trends! ;)

Barking Spider said...

They have indeed, Fausty, why the hell they did it makes no sense to regular readers - looks like normal service has been resumed! ;)

Barking Spider said...

It has "socialist bullshit" stamped all over it, Fausty. *DONT_KNOW*

Barking Spider said...

Great job keeping on the Warmist trail - such a barefaced lie of a limo-liberal/commie scam.

Well, now I've got that off my chest - nice looking site!

God bless.

Thanks, LSP, glad to help - and as far as the climate change scammers are concerned, I can't wait until Michael Mann, Al Gore and the rest of their paid zealots end up in the American justice system - that should tighten their sphincters considerably! ;)
