Another fraudulent claim by U.N. — Himalayan glaciers will not disappear by 2035
By Gretchen Randall
Date: January 19, 2010
Issue: U.N. scientists for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) who predicted that all the Himalayan glaciers would be gone by 2035 have now admitted they based their prediction, not on science, but on a story published in a scientific journal, New Scientist. Even worse, New Scientist published the story after the author interviewed an Indian scientist over the phone whose “speculation” about the glaciers was not supported by independent nor peer-reviewed research.
The Times Online (U.K.) reports that the Indian scientist, Syed Hasnain, “has since admitted that the claim was speculation and not support by any formal research.” The IPCC has yet not commented on the fraudulent claim.
This new revelation is thanks to scientists who question the work of the IPCC like Graham Cogley, a geographer from Trent University in Ontario, Canada, who questioned the claim and followed the trail to the original author of the journal piece and the Indian scientist who admitted his work was not based on science.
Comment: “If confirmed it would be one of the most serious failures yet seen in climate research.” Times Online (U.K.)
Comment : Such fraud should not be taken lightly. It was such scientific consensus on eugenics that underlined Aldol Hitler’s propaganda of the superiority of the the “Aryan race.” Let’s face it, fraud kills.

From The Resilient Earth: “Having recently returned from an expedition to K2, one of the highest peaks in the world, Canadian glaciologist Kenneth Hewitt says he observed five advancing glaciers and only a single one in retreat. Such evidence ‘challenges the view that the upper Indus glaciers are ‘disappearing’ quickly and will be gone in 30 years. There is no evidence to support this view and, indeed, rates of retreat have been less in the past 30 years than the previous 60 years.’” http://www.theresilientearth.com/?q=content/himalayan-glaciers-not-melting
