Global Warming scientist admits faulty glacier data included purely to put political pressure on world leaders.

Dr Murari Lal who said a Himalayan glacier was melting at the alarming rate of 134 meters a year when he should have said it was melting at the rate of 23 meters a year and who said the glacier would disappear by 2035 when the real estimate was the year 2350 and who said that a study was "peer reviewed" when in fact it was a report from the World Wildlife Fund has admitted that he included false information in the IPCC report purely to put political pressure on world leaders.

Given the revelations of Climategate and now Glaciergate, would anyone blame me if I lost my faith in the science of global warming?

  1. I've lost faith in not just the science of global warming, but the science of food and drug safety as well. Seems like anything can get approved these days with bogus, supposedly peer-reviewed research, yet it's stuff that makes people sick. Makes no sense tome.
