Himalayan glaciers to melt (again) by 2035
Global Warming About to Claim Three Quarters of a Billion People
25 September 2013
The IPCC – the international body of scientists analyzing global climate change – is releasing its new report in stages over the next week and this early piece was reported on by the Financial Times on Monday. Under the headline “Climate Change Chief Sounds Alert on Himalayan Glaciers,” the opening sentence of the article by Pilita Clark summarizes a very tightly:
“The glaciers of the Himalayas are melting so fast they will affect the water supplies of a population twice that of the US within 22 years, the head of the world’s leading authority on climate change has warned.”
Apparently Pauchuri doesn’t think that he did enough damage to the reputation of the IPCC the last time round, and is going for a repeat performance.
