1. In 2007 the IPCC issues its Fourth Assessment Report which contains the false claim that the Himalayan glaciers are expected to disappear by 2035.
2. The basis for that statement was a speculative comment made to a reporter by Syed Hasnain in 1999, who was then (and after) a professor at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
3. Following the publication of the IPCC report, and the widespread media coverage of the false claim about Himalayan glaciers, Dr. Hasnain joins TERI as a Senior Fellow, where Dr. Pachauri is the director.
January 21, 2010 The UN’s top climate change body has issued an unprecedented apology over its flawed prediction that Himalayan glaciers were likely to disappear by 2035.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said yesterday that the prediction in its landmark 2007 report was “poorly substantiated” and resulted from a lapse in standards. “In drafting the paragraph in question the clear and well-established standards of evidence, required by the IPCC procedures, were not applied properly,” the panel said. “The chair, vice-chair and co-chairs of the IPCC regret the poor application of IPCC procedures in this instance.”
"It emerged last week that the prediction was based not on a consensus among climate change experts but on a media interview with a single Indian glaciologist in 1999."
WOW! so that's how they get the Good old Consensus .. ONE single Indian glaciologist. One Brick at the time the AGW wall is falling down.
The IPCC ,the left media,politicians and the Alarmists bragged about the AR4 report and it’s unquestionable scientific integrity.
2500 plus scientists..800 plus contributing authors..450 lead from 130 countries ..6 years in the making and one report 2007 AR4 .. IPCC Chairman "IPCC studies only peer-review science”.
This is not the first inaccuracy to be found in the AR4”.. I do agree it was not the first time and I would like to ask the " Alarmist" why they never reported any of those inaccuracies?
The skepticalscience blog said: “Unfortunately, the error was not spotted in the review process. This may be because it was buried deep in the working group II section”
Buried DEEP? It was smack in everyone’s face daily and was one of Al Gore big scare in the “ NOBEL prize winning crockumantary AIC. Maybe the IPCC should add this to it's COC ."Unless it fit within our range of scary scenarios then simple alarmist speculation from the WWF is acceptable and Peer reviews papers are not needed." It should be called the HIM A LYING report.

Is civilization doomed because of man-made global warming? You’ve been told your carbon footprint could lead to skyrocketing temperatures, melting ice caps, dying polar bears and “superstorms.” KUSI meteorologist, John Coleman, has an amazing story to tell of science gone bad, and new revelations as the “climategate” scandal comes to the

The bitter winter afflicting much of the Northern Hemisphere is only the start of a global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years, say some of the world’s most eminent climate scientists.
Their predictions – based on an analysis of natural cycles in water temperatures in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans – challenge some of the global warming orthodoxy’s most deeply cherished beliefs, such as the claim that the North Pole will be free of ice in
summer by 2013.
According to the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Colorado, Arctic summer sea ice has increased by 409,000 square miles, or 26 per cent, since 2007 – and even the most committed global warming activists do not dispute this.
They say that their research shows that much of the warming was caused by oceanic cycles when they were in a ‘warm mode’ as opposed to the present ‘cold mode’.
This challenge to the widespread view that the planet is on the brink of an irreversible catastrophe is all the greater because the scientists could never be described as global warming ‘deniers’ or sceptics.
However, both main British political parties continue to insist that the world is facing imminent disaster without drastic cuts in CO2.Prof Latif, who leads a research team at the renowned Leibniz Institute at Germany’s Kiel University, has developed new methods for measuring ocean temperatures 3,000ft beneath the surface, where the cooling and warming cycles start.
He and his colleagues predicted the new cooling trend in a paper published in 2008 and warned of it again at an IPCC conference in Geneva last September.
Last night he told The Mail on Sunday: ‘A significant share of the warming we saw from 1980 to 2000 and at earlier periods in the 20th Century was due to these cycles – perhaps as much as 50 per cent.
'They have now gone into reverse, so winters like this one will become much more likely. Summers will also probably be cooler, and all this may well last two decades or longer.
‘The extreme retreats that we have seen in glaciers and sea ice will come to a halt. For the time being, global warming has paused, and there may well be some cooling.’
As Europe, Asia and North America froze last week, conventional wisdom insisted that this was merely a ‘blip’ of no long-term significance.

Then we get "Rayes said he's proud to know his company, which is a managing partner of Nunavut Sealink and Supply, is the first to deliver sealift cargo through the fabled Arctic waterway."
the CBC report "Waguih Rayes, the general manager of the company's Arctic division.
Rayes, who was on the vessel during its trip through the Northwest Passage, said the company informed the coast guard, which put an icebreaker on standby.
"They were ready to be there for us if we called them, but I didn't see one cube of ice," he said.
the original report was: "A member of the crew is reported to have claimed that " there was no ice whatsoever"
Now the rest of the story .
Nunavut communities await supplies from crippled Avataq.
Schools in Igloolik, Hall Beach and Repulse Bay still await supplies that were supposed to arrive two weeks ago on the MV Avataq, damaged Sept. 26 after a nearly disastrous incident in Hudson Strait near Salluit.
The breakdown, plus bad weather, threw the 113-metre ice-class cargo ship, owned by Nunavut Eastern Arctic Shipping Ltd., behind schedule by about two weeks.
A tug is now slated to tow the vessel to Igloolik between Oct. 7 and Oct. 9, and then on to Hall Beach, said Barry Tarrant, manager of the Northern store in Hall Beach.
His store, like Northern stores in Igloolik and Repulse Bay, is waiting for its entire sealift order to arrive. That includes soda pop, trucks, skidoos, bikes and food.
But communities in Nunavik won’t have to wait any longer for their sealifts.
Cargo for three communities in Nunavik was transferred during the weekend, from the Avataq on to the MV Camilla Desgagnés.
Kangiqsujuaq received its cargo on Saturday.
“Camilla is presently delivering the Puvirnituq cargo load, and then will sail to Inukjuak, with cargo onboard for clients of both carriers,” said Waguih Rayes, the general manager of Desgagnés Transarctik Inc., in an Oct. 5 email.
The MV Camilla Desgagnés remains on schedule for her subsequent destinations in the Kivalliq to deliver Nunavut Sealink and Supply Inc. cargo, he said.
The cargo ship remains on " SCHEDULE" and nothing out of the ordinary a typical normal delivery before winter since ...The MV Camilla Desgagnés is a Canadian cargo vessel that has operated since 1982 in the waters of eastern and Arctic Canada.
The CBC report state "
"Residents were surprised to see the MV Camilla Desgagnés come in from the east, he said."
One would think there would be a least some mention of this "SURPRISE" in the article from the Arctic news?
Here is another article for this year... http://www.nunatsiaqonline.ca/stories/article/854_A_near_calamity_for_the_MV_Avataq/
Posted by SJP on October 01, 2009: Some of the comments.. My gosh! For a second year in a row, NEAS has failed to provide on-time service to my community. Last year, the haul cracked on the ship destined to Igloolik. As a result, the NEAS ship arrived in mid/late October, and the weather was just nasty at that time. This year, the AVATAQ is already 3 weeks overdue (originally scheduled September 10, give or take a couple of days), and with the transfer of cargo from the AVATAQ to the AIVIQ, will only delay arrival once again. I’m OK with considering weather delays and ship issues, but why doesn’t NEAS change there scheduling to something earlier in the shipping year (such as NSSI, whom was here in late August)? "
Why indeed? this blind faith in Global warming is so strong with these people that putting sailors lives at risk is a non issue.
Why was the general manager Waguih Rayes doing on that ship?
well look no further ...Could this be the reason? http://www.chesapeakeclimate.org/blog/?p=566.
The Northeast Passage - a trade route linking North European and Siberian ports to Asia in summer months - has been open since 1934, and was made available as a route for international traffic after the fall of the Soviet Union.http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/01/05/times_asa_wrong/
The CBC as Tax payer funded entity cannot continue to ignore an entire section of the Canadian population. We must reclaim the CBC's impartiality or put it to rest by dismantling it, if it fails to respond to the tax payers.

If you want a “green revolution” - and the evidence suggests that you don’t - it must truly be from the bottom up. This Government’s strategy - to sneer at the doubters - is doomed, not because doubt is the cornerstone of democracy but because, on this specific issue, the doubters are in the majority. Copenhagen marked the end of an era: it demonstrated the poverty and self-regard of elite politics, the introspection and self-congratulation of a political class still in love with itself because nobody else will love it. The lesson of 2009, from duck house to green summits, was that kind of politics was dead, and a new kind is needed.
