IPCC Was Wrong--They Won't Change Opinion

I was bemused by a recent report that Dr. Pachuri, the head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has admitted that they might be wrong to say that the Himalayan glaciers would be melted by 2035.

"Theoretically, let's say we slipped upon one number, I don't think it takes anything away from the overwhelming scientific evidence of what's happening with the climate of this earth," he said. "We continue to disagree with the 2035 date and that will be part of the response we are working on."

In spite of this, they don't change their views.

"Despite the controversy, the IPCC said that it stood by its overall conclusions about glacier loss this century in big mountain ranges including the Himalayas. "

It seems that data has nothing to do with the IPCC conclusions.


  1. What bemuses me as I watch Tripod girl roll out one after the other WWF/Greenpeace/NWF horsemanure magazine fluff piece used as supporting data in the AR4, is that CHEESE-n-RICE, I could have done that two years ago, if I'd just bothered to read the IPCC's drivel.

    Each new one she pulls out, I feel like banging my head against a post.
    You could have done that. I could have done that. Anybody could have done that.
    On the whole planet Tripod girl is the only person who read the damned thing (besides the con artists who wrote it, sold it, PRed it).

    I find that very bemusing.

  3. Glen you'll be interested in this I'm thinkn.
    "Area Weighted Presentation Of UAH LT MSU data By Tim Channon" at Roger Pielke's blog.
    It shows a hotspot that stretchs from Hudson bay to the south tip of Greenland, which appearently is intense enough that it pushes the world average into a hot anomoly.

    Oh something else. Pretty soon CBS NBC and the rest of the lamestream media will be selling whatever hiccup Vancouver weather sends as a proof positive of global warming.
    A bit of your GISSTEMP deconstruction of weather stations in British Columbia would come in handy when the warmists switch into high dungeon.
