    that AGW will cause Himalayan glaciers to melt by 2035.

    How settled science gets that way

    I have had a feeling that this was the kind of source for most of the "settled science."

    Not totally..... Read into the article and note there is a 3 yard retreat every year.

    This is the problem with lazy science reporting, or partisan science. If there is an issue, people concentrate on the fact they have been lied to, rather than the reality involved.

    It is better to be honest in the first place, which is the problem I have with most of the warming hysterics.

    Also the 'cures' are less into remediation than into redistribution. If they actually want to fix a problem, more power to them. But that is not what I usually see happening.

    Now science is a self correcting endevour. When a mistake, or careless claim is recognized, other scientists jump on it. However, when drugged out radio jocks make whingding statements, or an ersazt wearther man lies on his web site, it never gets corrected.
    As the years progress, we shall see how accurate this statement is.


    U.N. panel re-examines Himalayan glacier thaw report - Yahoo! News

    The IPCC's 2007 report 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."

    However, the report also said of the glaciers: "Its total area will likely shrink from the present 500,000 to 100,000 sq km (193,000 to 38,600 sq miles) by the year 2035."

    So are goofy Radio Hosts self correcting. People come here every day to refute Rush. He puts his words up his website for all to read every day.

    The problem here was we were getting bogus numbers and science was not self correcting. People who thought the data was skewed, made up, distorted or pulled out of someones' ass (all four seem to be the case here) were called dangerous Luddites.

    It has been my major issue. Or one of them. Those who asked questions were told to shut up, and the whole thing still smacks of self serving sanctimony.

    This is the "settled" nature of this science. Which is why I distrusted it.

    Well, except of course if you work at East Angelia, then you destroy the data and leave out data that does not fit your theory -- then destroy that data too

    If the Yankees keep winning the World Series every year, by 2035 they'll have 52 WS Titles.
