Now, yet another lie has been exposed. In the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's latest report, "it state that observed reductions in mountain ice in the Andes, Alps and Africa were being caused by global warming." Two sources were claimed for these "observed reductions." Now, it turns out, that those sources were a magazine article and and a geography student's master's degree dissertation. And both of those sources based their conclusions on, get this, interviews with mountain climbers . . . not scientific measurements . . . interviews. (Link to story here.)
I suspect that the interviews went something like this . . .
"Yo, Mr. mountain climber, was there a lot of ice up there?"
"But not as much as last year was there?"
"I dunno, it's all white man. Snow and ice all over the place. But it's sure not like it was back in '78. Man, that was a cold winter."
"So you're telling me that in your experience, it is warmer now than it was that winter."
"Oh yeah. That was a cold one."
"So the planet must be warming, right?"
"Well, huh, I guess you're right. Want some granola?"
"No thanks. I've got what I need."
Is anything about the IPCC scientific? It sure doesn't seem so.
