UN on Himalayas Melting Glacier Report: Yeah, It Was Bogus

So, when are they giving back the Nobel Prize?
Five glaring errors were discovered in one paragraph of the world's most authoritative report on global warming, forcing the Nobel Prize-winning panel of climate scientists who wrote it to apologize and promise to be more careful.
Five errors in one paragraph, but hey, we promise to be careful the next time. It's really a shame we're exposed as frauds and should also be stripped of the Nobel Prize, it's cash rewards and all the prestige that goes with it. But forget that. We'll just be careful to hide our lies better the next time.
The errors are in a 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a U.N.-affiliated body. All the mistakes appear in a subsection that suggests glaciers in the Himalayas could melt away by the year 2035 - hundreds of years earlier than the data actually indicates. The year 2350 apparently was transposed as 2035.
Eh, just a minor oversight.
The climate panel and even the scientist who publicized the errors said they are not significant in comparison to the entire report, nor were they intentional. And they do not negate the fact that worldwide, glaciers are melting faster than ever.
Of course there's no evidence to support the theory they're melting faster than ever, but the AP reporter just felt obligated to state that fiction. You would think a "reporter" would probe a little deeper, but we're dealing with the AP, so...
"The credibility of the IPCC depends on the thoroughness with which its procedures are adhered to," Yvo de Boer, head of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, told The Associated Press in an e-mail. "The procedures have been violated in this case. That must not be allowed to happen again because the credibility of climate change policy can only be based on credible science."
And as we know from ClimateGate, there is no credible science with the Global Warmers. They just make it up to justify their existence and rake in grant money.
The incident follows a furor late last year over the release of stolen e-mails in which climate scientists talked about suppressing data and freezing out skeptics of global warming. And on top of that, an intense cold spell has some people questioning whether global warming exists.
Today's admission of fraud just provides us with 100 years of ammunition, thank you very much.

Conveniently omitted from the story is the name of the man who received the Nobel Prize with the IPCC. Guess who that might be?
