+ - Climate science dealt blow as India ditches IPCC 3

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The Indian government has moved to establish its own body to address and monitor science surrounding climate change, saying it "cannot rely" on the official United Nation panel. The move is a severe blow to the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) following the revelation parts of its 3000 page 2007 report on climate science was not subjected to peer review.

"There is a fine line between climate science and climate evangelism," India's Ramesh said. "I am for climate science."

This comes just after last months admission that a sub-section in the IPCC report suggested glaciers in the Himalayas could melt away by the year 2035 — hundreds of years earlier than the data actually indicates. The year 2350 was apparently transposed as 2035, to which they apologized"
