The Nobel Prize Committee HOPED the glaciers were melting. And, it was so, for a while. Who do we blame?
Not everybody believed. Not everybody wanted to believe.
EVEN THE “SCIENTIST” WHO MADE THE BOGUS CLAIM DIDN’T BELIEVE IT.
He wanted to influence government! And government was more than happy to oblige, sans examination of the details. Another example of government failure.
Same story in New Zealand, same story at Hadley CRU, same story at Penn State, same story at NASA GISS, same story at . . .
QED. AGW believers are dupes. THE NOBEL PRIZE COMMITTEE IS HOLDING THE BAG. Wake up. You are killing people.
Take back those ridiculous prizes for anti-science.
The scientist behind the bogus claim in a Nobel Prize-winning UN report that Himalayan glaciers will have melted by 2035 last night admitted it was included purely to put political pressure on world leaders.
Dr Murari Lal also said he was well aware the statement, in the 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), did not rest on peer-reviewed scientific research.
In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Dr Lal, the co-ordinating lead author of the report’s chapter on Asia, said: ‘It related to several countries in this region and their water sources. We thought that if we can highlight it, it will impact policy-makers and politicians and encourage them to take some concrete action.
‘It had importance for the region, so we thought we should put it in.’
