The world is about to end, says the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Oops! It turns out that the IPCC made a big mistake.
THE idea that the Himalaya could lose its glaciers by 2035-glaciers which feed rivers across South and East Asia-is a dramatic and apocalyptic one. After the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said such an outcome was very likely in the assessment of the state of climate science that it made in 2007, onlookers (including this newspaper) repeated the claim with alarm. In fact, there is no reason to believe it to be true. This is good news (within limits) for Indian farmers-and bad news for the IPCC.
This almost certainly isn’t the only error in the IPCC report. But then errors are inevitable when the process is politically driven and the conclusion has been formed ahead of time.
