Es kommt immer anders als man denkt

It always comes about differently than you expected.

“A Nobel Prize-winning panel of climate scientists who wrote the world’s most authoritative report on global warming have apologised after five glaring errors were discovered in one paragraph.

The errors are in a 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations-affiliated body.

All the mistakes appear in a sub-section that suggests 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.”

All I know is that they’re predicting -23 (centigrade) for Berlin this weekend. I sure hope that this is a glaring error too.

“2035 würden die Himalaya-Gletscher abgeschmolzen sein, warnte der Weltklimarat. Die Prognose fußt womöglich auf einem Zahlendreher – auf keinen Fall aber auf seriöser Wissenschaft.”
