IPCC head rejects call for his resignation

Rajendra PachauriRajendra Pachauri, head of the U.N. IPCC, has said he'll not resign his post after it was revealed that the IPCC was hundreds of years off in the prediction that the Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035.  In a recent interview he continued to defend Global Warming saying, ""Rational people ... see the larger the picture. They are not going to be distracted by this one error, which of course is regrettable.  I have no intention of resigning from my position."

Really?  Really? One minor error? Are you kidding me?  For years we've been bombarded with warnings that hundreds of millions of deaths would be caused if the glacier melted.  LIke this video created by Greenpeace two years ago:

Pachauri said recently that while the IPCC sorry about the prediction, at least it was not included in the final summary for the IPCC's report.  Except not including information is not the same as making a correction.  This is especially true since Pachauri can be seen in this BBC report, made just three months ago, relaying false predictions that the glaciers would melt by 2035.

The Glacier is the source of water for the rivers. 15 meters in 6 months.

Idle thoughts.... If they didn't melt there would be no river. (unless it rained). A Glacier receding 15 meters in summer doesn't seem like cause for alarm. I expect by next may it may be back to it's normal spot.
