No wonder there are tons of skeptics. Since the ORIGINAL IPCC report was changed by politicians to make the Global Warming situation look far worse than it actually was, and the data coming out from them is flawed either accidentally or (more likely by design), why SHOULD we believe ANYTHING they say?

Warming report flawed Nobel Prize-winning panel apologizes for errors on climate change
Published on Thursday, Jan 21, 2010


Associated Press
WASHINGTON: Five glaring errors were discovered in one paragraph of the world's most authoritative report on global warming, forcing the Nobel Prize-winning panel of climate scientists who wrote it to apologize and promise to be more careful.



The errors are in a 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a U.N.-affiliated body. All the mistakes appear in a subsection that suggests glaciers in the Himalayas could melt away by the year 2035 hundreds of years earlier than the data actually indicate. The year 2350 apparently was transposed as 2035.



The climate panel and even the scientist who publicized the errors said they are not significant in comparison to the entire report, nor were they intentional. And they do not negate the fact that worldwide, glaciers are melting faster.



But the mistakes open the door for more attacks from climate change skeptics.
''The credibility of the IPCC depends on the thoroughness with which its procedures are adhered to,'' Yvo de Boer, head of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, told the Associated Press in an e-mail. ''The procedures have been violated in this case. That must not be allowed to happen again because the credibility of climate change policy can only be based on credible science.''



The incident follows a furor late last year over the release of stolen e-mails in which climate scientists talked about suppressing data and freezing out skeptics of global warming. And on top of that, an intense cold spell has some people questioning whether global warming exists.



In a statement, the climate change panel expressed regret over what it called ''poorly substantiated estimates'' about the Himalayan glaciers.

Garbage in = Garbage out.

I'm sure the media will bury this along with everything else that's not on barry's agenda.
