U.N. Climate Chief Admits Flawed Prediction on Glaciers

I've already written about this, but here it really hits the fan. What I find funny (in the news over this story) is that pundits simply say that this gives fodder to the "deniers" and strengthens the "denial machine." They take this and turn it around as a negative about "deniers" and skeptics, like myself. Amazing how mounting proof of this utter hoax is turned into a negative about me and my fellow skeptics, simply because we notice the mounting evidence of the hoax and dare to bring it up.

After Climategate, years-long record cold empirical data, Copen-faken, Hansen's climate retractions, and now this admission, the cult members in the media still aren't willing to entertain the idea that they've been royally had.

The UN’s top climate change body has issued an unprecedented apology over its flawed prediction that Himalayan glaciers were likely to disappear by 2035.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said yesterday that the prediction in its landmark 2007 report was “poorly substantiated” and resulted from a lapse in standards.
