Get your facts right

In light of the controversial (and incorrect) claims that the Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035, it is vital that all climate data and reports based on statistics are thoroughly scrutinised. That the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change got it so wrong set back the cause many years, possibly decades.

So it’s with reluctance I link to this blog-post by the excellent Climate Sock. Read it and weep. Shoddy polling and dodgy numbers are not to be supported – even if they support a good cause like the Save England’s Forests campaign.
