More trouble for the IPCC

UN climate change panel based claims on student dissertation and magazine article
The United Nations' expert panel on climate change based claims about ice disappearing from the world's mountain tops on a student's dissertation and an article in a mountaineering magazine.

Here's are some comment on the article:

Since the beginning of humans on earth we have been trying to control the weather. Shamans, witch doctors and all manner of religious or semi-religious leaders in past history have said give us your money or goods and we will control the weather. Now it is the turn of the scientists saying give us all of your money and we will control the weather. They are all con-men and shysters. We should tar and feather the whole lot of them.

In another example a WWF paper on forest fires was used to illustrate the impact of reduced rainfall in the Amazon rainforest, but the data was from another Nature paper published in 1999. "When The Sunday Telegraph contacted the lead scientists behind the two papers in Nature, they expressed surprise that their research was not cited directly but said the IPCC had accurately represented their work...." Have you read the papers? They do not support the concept of AGW at all - they are about forest fires! Why are you implying that these papers are valid evidence?

This whole climate change scare will turn out to be the con of the century. Naturally, the con is eagerly pounced upon by liberal politicians looking for excuses to excessively tax the population.
