Glacier scientists admits politics before science....

The whole global warming edifice seems to be falling, no??
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.’

This isn't front page news because the papers know that less and less turn to them for any real news. Why would they admit to one of the few demographics that still read them that they backed the wrong horse and have been mindlessly feeding them a steady diet of buffalo chips for years now?
