Another Day, Another Embarrassment for the IPCC

The United Nations’ expert panel on climate change based claims about ice disappearing from the world’s mountain tops on a student’s dissertation and an article in a mountaineering magazine. The revelation will cause fresh embarrassment for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which had to issue a humiliating apology earlier this month over inaccurate statements about global warming.

The IPCC’s remit is to provide an authoritative assessment of scientific evidence on climate change.

In its most recent report, it stated that observed reductions in mountain ice in the Andes, Alps and Africa was being caused by global warming, citing two papers as the source of the information.

However, it can be revealed that one of the sources quoted was a feature article published in a popular magazine for climbers which was based on anecdotal evidence from mountaineers about the changes they were witnessing on the mountainsides around them.

The other was a dissertation written by a geography student, studying for the equivalent of a master’s degree, at the University of Berne in Switzerland that quoted interviews with mountain guides in the Alps.

Alliteratively speaking this has become a monotonous mountain of mendacity.

    Eye-opening, last night on the Coren show — Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball exposes the

    “fraudulent unscientific undemocratic eugenicist darwinist atheistic leftist marxist progressive one world government conspiracy”

    and names a whole bunch of corrupt people involved, starting with the chief conspirator and the mastermind of the scheme — Maurice Strong!
