That’s how the IPCC argues that all glaciers in the Himalayas will disappear by 2035. The only problem is that this isn’t to be found in any peer reviewed literature. An a lot of people who know about such ice cold things, such as glaciers, say that this is simply not true – at the current rate of melting it would probably take a couple of hundred years to melt those glaciers. Way to go, U.N. and IPCC! Politicizing science was maybe not the best of ideas anyway?

BTW – I got this from the Jan 16 issue of New Scientist. It just nagged me enough to write this post here…
