"Voodoo Science" 1- Global Warming Hysteria- 0

The science is settled and the glaciers in the Himalayas are melting! That's what the the world body in charge of scaring the hell out of everyone, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has been saying for the last two years.

Turns out the science this dire prediction was based on wasn't so much science as, speculation by some guy no one ever really heard of and originally reported in a non-peer reviewed magazine.

The super awesome climate folks who know everything, never make mistakes and can predict with such certainty the climate in a hundred years or so, included this bit of "settled science" in an IPCC report.

In the past few days the scientists behind the warning have admitted that it was based on a news story in the New Scientist, a popular science journal, published eight years before the IPCC's 2007 report.

It has also emerged that the New Scientist report was itself based on a short telephone interview with Syed Hasnain, a little-known Indian scientist then based at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.

Hasnain has since admitted that the claim was "speculation" and was not supported by any formal research. If confirmed it would be one of the most serious failures yet seen in climate research. The IPCC was set up precisely to ensure that world leaders had the best possible scientific advice on climate change.

Professor Murari Lal, who oversaw the chapter on glaciers in the IPCC report, said he would recommend that the claim about glaciers be dropped: "If Hasnain says officially that he never asserted this, or that it is a wrong presumption, than I will recommend that the assertion about Himalayan glaciers be removed from future IPCC assessments."

The head of the IPCC had in the past called disagreement with the alarmist claim as "voodoo science". Ooops.

Be sure to visit your favorite Global Warming site to see if this is a "nontroversy" or if they simply ignore it.
