CLIMATEGATE UPDATE: UN report on glaciers melting is based on ‘speculation.’ “Two years ago, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) made the claim which it said was based on detailed research into the impact of global warming. But the IPCC have since admitted it was based on a report written in a science journal and even the scientist who was the subject of the original story admits it was not based on fact. The article, in the New Scientist, was not even based on a research paper – it evolved from a short telephone interview with the academic.” Remember when the magic phrase was the peer-reviewed science?
