TIME TO RE-CHECK THOSE GLOBAL WARMING RECORDS
An opinion poll this month found the number of people believing climate change is an established fact has fallen from 41 per cent in November to 26 per cent.
The IPCC has come under attack in recent weeks after it emerged that its latest report contained a number of errors, all of which overstated the severity of the threat posed by climate change. The most glaring error was a claim that all Himalayan glaciers would disappear by 2035. Most glaciologists believe it would take another 300 years for the glaciers to melt at the present rate.
The allegations against climate scientists are believed to have contributed to an unprecedented rise in public scepticism about climate change.
