The lies and deceptions pile on, as Dr. Murai Lal admits unverified data was included in the UN’s IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report. No only was the date unverified, but it was included after protests from other experts in the field of glacierology.
Here are snippets from MailOnline:
Dr Lal’s admission will only add to the mounting furore over the
melting glaciers assertion, which the IPCC was last week forced to
withdraw because it has no scientific foundation.
The claim that Himalayan glaciers are set to disappear by 2035 rests on
two 1999 magazine interviews with glaciologist Syed Hasnain, which were
then recycled without any further investigation in a 2005 report by the
environmental campaign group WWF.
Dr Lal said: ‘We knew the WWF report with the 2035 date was “grey
literature” [material not published in a peer-reviewed journal]. But it
was never picked up by any of the authors in our working group, nor by
any of the more than 500 external reviewers, by the governments to
which it was sent, or by the final IPCC review editors.’
