    It appears the esteemed IPCC folks made a wee error of about 300 years regarding melting glaciers...

    ____

    Despite the Al-Gore-Kool-Aid-drinkers’ best efforts to suppress it, the Climategate scandal continues to blossom and flourish. (Or should that be putresce and pullulate?)

    I think my favourite comic detail this week just has to be the one about the amazing not-so-fast-shrinking glaciers. As you’ll know if you’ve been reading reports like this scare stories about glaciers retreating “faster than predicted” are a central plank of the IPCC’s case that we should carbon-tax ourselves back to the Dark Ages NOW. According to the IPCC, the Himalayan glaciers could be gone by 2035.

    Or should that be 2350? Yep it seems those scientific experts who make the IPCC’s reports so famously reliable and trustworthy have a bad case of numerical dyslexia. The mistake was spotted by a Canadian academic:

    J Graham Cogley, a professor at Ontario Trent University, says he believes the UN authors got the date from an earlier report wrong by more than 300 years.

    He is astonished they “misread 2350 as 2035″.

    In its 2007 report, the Nobel Prize-winning Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said: “Glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world and, if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate.

    “Its total area will likely shrink from the present 500,000 to 100,000 square kilometres by the year 2035,” the report said.

    It suggested three quarters of a billion people who depend on glacier melt for water supplies in Asia could be affected.

    But Professor Cogley has found a 1996 document by a leading hydrologist, VM Kotlyakov, that mentions 2350 as the year by which there will be massive and precipitate melting of glaciers.

    “The extrapolar glaciation of the Earth will be decaying at rapid, catastrophic rates – its total area will shrink from 500,000 to 100,000 square kilometres by the year 2350,” Mr Kotlyakov’s report said.

    Mr Cogley says it is astonishing that none of the 10 authors of the 2007 IPCC report could spot the error and “misread 2350 as 2035″.

    “I do suggest that the glaciological community might consider advising the IPCC about ways to avoid such egregious errors as the 2035 versus 2350 confusion in the future,” says Mr Cogley

    And another smoking gun showing the shameful manipulation of climate data - and this is but one specific example of what is likely many such manipulations...

    ____

    ...Eschenbach has been looking more closely into one of the big unanswered questions of the great Climate Wars: how reliable is the climate data used by the IPCC?

    He focuses on just one country, Australia, and on one weather station – at Darwin Airport – and compares the raw temperature data recorded at the station with the “adjusted” version of the data.

    Here’s what he found:

    [​IMG]

    Notice the anomaly? It’s not exactly difficult. The blue line is the trend on the raw data, showing a slight cooling. The red line is the data once it has been adjusted by scientists at the Global Historical Climate Network – which is one of the main sources of temperature data used by the IPCC. Eschenbach finds the extremity of this “homogenization” adjustment rather shocking:

    ...What he can’t fathom at all, though, is the mind-boggling scale of these adjustments. They can only be explained in terms of scientists with a very particular agenda.

    Those, dear friends, are the clumsy fingerprints of someone messing with the data Egyptian style … they are indisputable evidence that the “homogenized” data has been changed to fit someone’s preconceptions about whether the earth is warming.

    This absolutely proves that the IPCC has been reporting falsified data and driving economic and political changes based on their AGENDA and not on facts. The persons responsible for these false claims of AGW need to be apprehended, tried, convicted and executed. They have consciously tried to manipulate the economies of nations all over the world with bullshit.

    Did they take into account the fact that Earth is million of degrees just a few kilometers below the surface?

    The Earths core temperature is generally accepted as being about 7300 Celsius. Other temp data in link as well.

    Remarkable how the raw data shows an actual cooling trend while the "revised" data shows the warming trend.

    Absolute proof of manipulation indeed - the entirety of the "science" has been an agenda-driven scam playing to the tune of billions of dollars...

    If Palin had said that earth core temp comment the media would be replaying it 24/7.

    Big Al? Nary a word...

    I know.

    Thankfully, the public is paying less and less attention to our Pravda. Though they could still damage Palin if she were only 2% as stupid as Al Gore or 1% Corrupt as Obama, Geithner or Rangle, the day is coming when the LMSM will be little more than background noise. They've marginalized themselves
