An independent board of scientists will be appointed to review the workings of the world’s top climate science panel, which has faced recriminations over inaccuracies in a 2007 report, a United Nations environmental spokesman said Friday.IF THEY REALLY APPOINT AN INDEPENDENT CREW, THEN THIS IS ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN OF AGW ALARMISM.
The board’s work will be part of a broader review of the body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, said Nick Nuttall, a spokesman for the United Nations Environment Program, who spoke on the sidelines of an international meeting of environment ministers here.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has been under fire since it was pointed out that the 2007 report included a prediction that Himalayan glaciers would vanish by 2035, although there is no scientific consensus to that effect.
BTW: THIS SHOULD PROVE TO EVERYONE THAT THE DOUBTS RAISED BY THE SKEPTICS WERE VERY VERY SERIOUS - AND THAT THE SCIENCE IS FAR FROM SETTLED.
Update: Several distinguished British physicists have sent a letter to Parliament which devatates the CRU, AGW and the IPCC.
BOTTOME-LINE: Not only is the science NOT settled, much of the so-called "science" used by the alarmists was fraudulent, and when outside scientists saw that the CRU conslusions didn't match their own they asked for the raw sata to test the AGW conclusions, they were rebuffed.
That is UN-scientific; that is propagandistic.
NO SURPRISE: AGW wasn't ever science; it's politics posing as science.
