Three Strikes you're IPCC

China and India are no longer listening to the United Nations Climate Gurus (the IPCC).

Strike 1: Hacked IPCC emails show core scientists hiding data and corrupting the peer review process

Strike 2: IPCC claim of Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035 was an off-the-cuff guess by one man

Strike 3: IPCC claim of global warming wiping out 40% of the Amazon rainforest was a guess by a green/eco group

Strike 4: IPCC claim of global warming causing a 50% reduction in African agriculture by 2020 was a lie

Strike 5: IPCC claim of global warming causing an increase in hurricanes and floods was withdrawn by the author.

How long until Europe and the United States start following the science, as well?

Update: Fox News reports on President Obama planning yet another new agency -- this one to study the climate... and not one word of any of the above information is mentioned. Why? Why would America's taxpayers _need_ a new agency to study the climate when we already have NASA _and_ the NOAA?

Obama's of two minds: he's a little league fiscal conservative toeing the plate in his State of the Union address against a Nolan Ryan leftist staring in from the mound. Even if he ever hits the ball he'll stay at the plate shaking his stinging hands.
