Wacky Global Warming News: Himalayan Glaciers Part 2

The whole "the world is melting because of CO2" Global Warming thing is pretty wacky. Remember the entry about Himalayan Glaciers melting by 2035? Well, it turns out there's more to the story than just one scientist's speculation being used by other scientists too lazy to check sources. You guessed it. There's more mistakes about the Himalayan glaciers in the same 2007 report. You know, the report that resulted in a Nobel Peace Prize for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Global Warming doomsayer Al Gore.

In addition to the lie about the glaciers melting by 2035, they also say the total area of Himalayan glaciers “will likely shrink from the present 500,000 to 100,000 square kilometers by the year 2035”. Ha! Another lie, there are only 33,000 square kilometers of glaciers in the Himalayas. Also, the report claims the Pindari Glacier shrank by 2,840m — a rate of 135.2m a year. The actual rate of shrinkage when the lies are discarded is only 23.5m a year. All of this has finally been admitted by the head of the IPCC Dr Rajendra Pachauri, who dismissed calls for his resignation.

Global Warming is a lie. A scam that politicians are using to separate you from your money and freedom through needless taxes and regulation. Don't let them do it.
