Global Warming: IPCC Head Caught Lying
The unraveling continues with the latest admission from the Chariman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that he knew the data on the disappearing Himalayan glaciers was bogus well before the Copenhagen summit where he repeated the claim.
The chairman of the leading climate change watchdog was informed that claims about melting Himalayan glaciers were false before the Copenhagen summit, The Times has learnt.
Rajendra Pachauri was told that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessment that the glaciers would disappear by 2035 was wrong, but he waited two months to correct it. He failed to act despite learning that the claim had been refuted by several leading glaciologists.
The IPCC’s report underpinned the proposals at Copenhagen for drastic cuts in global emissions.
So what did he know and when did he know it? And when are we going to stop taking these people seriously?
