IPCC may be forced to retract alarmist predictions

IPCC chairman Rajendra PachauriThe IPCC may have to retract their dire predictions that the Himalayan glaciers would disappear by 2035. 

Glaciologist Professor Graham Cogley of Ontario's Trent University has said that the it could take up to ten times longer than the original prediction.  Originally, Cogley thought the data had been incorrect but it turned out that the IPCC hasn't been checking their sources.  The paper was simply based on a story published in a 1999 paper in New Scientist

Given that the IPCC is going to have to extended its dire predictions by hundreds of years, it's no wonder we rightfully accused them of being alarmist in Not Evil Just Wrong.

Finally!
While I will have to "see it to believe it" in regards to the IPCC having to admit their predictions are wrong, I hope this new research and it's possible influence on the IPCC and their 'consensus' will make headlines and cause the alarmist nonsense to go away and bring the environmental movement back down to earth. What really will be interesting, however, is the reaction of Al Gore, Obama, and so many others who's main stake in the AGW cause is political and/or financial. Not to jump to conclusions, but what would the reaction of countries like China and India be to such news - considering they were put under enormous political pressure to conform to U.S., British, and other countries with mainstream (consensus) positions?

I honestly don't thing the climate deceivers will ever change their minds. In fact I would be interested to hear what Not Evil Just Wrong think could be a useful tactic against an establishment which is incapable of changing its mind.
