U.N. Glacier Scientists Knew Data Was False and 'Political'

Wonder when the U.S. mainstream media will cover this? Never. Of course, it's the faithful British press that brings us the story. Thank you, Brits, for embracing truth.

Had enough yet, sheep? Or is your faith in this quasi-religion still unshaken? I told you--POLITICS MASQUERADING AS SCIENCE!

The scientist behind the bogus claim in a Nobel Prize-winning UN report that Himalayan glaciers will have melted by 2035 last night admitted it was included purely to put political pressure on world leaders.

Dr Murari Lal also said he was well aware the statement, in the 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), did not rest on peer-reviewed scientific research.

In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Dr Lal, the co-ordinating lead author of the report’s chapter on Asia, said: ‘It related to several countries in this region and their water sources. We thought that if we can highlight it, it will impact policy-makers and politicians and encourage them to take some concrete action.

‘It had importance for the region, so we thought we should put it in.’
