The lead bureaucrat for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is calling scientists at the India Ministry of Environment and Forests “arrogant” for producing a 60-page study of Himalayan glaciers concluding there is insufficient evidence to say global warming is causing a retreat of Himalayan glaciers…
The report, “Himalayan Glaciers, A State-of-Art Review of Glacial Studies, Glacial Retreat, and Climate Change,” analyzes 150 years of glacier data throughout the Himalayan Mountains. It is authored by the deputy director general of the Geological Survey of India, a doctoral scientist who has been studying Himalayan glaciers for decades.
The U.N.’s Climate Change Panel (IPCC), by comparison, is a group of scientists and nonscientists chosen by the U.N. political arms. Among its lead authors are staffers from Environmental Defense and Greenpeace. Though IPCC claims humans are probably causing a significant rise in global temperature, even within IPCC there is substantial disagreement that gets swept under the rug.
