Whoops! Scientists have had to retract yet another a study on global warming -- this time, one purporting to show that sea levels will rise by 7 to 82 cm (3 to 33 inches) by 2100. The study, published last year in Nature Geoscience, echoed warnings issued in 2007 by the global warming indoctrination arm of the United Nations: the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Apparently, there were a couple of not-so-minor mistakes that mean the study's earth-shattering (or earth-flooding) conclusions aren't so accurate after all. Citing two mistakes -- a "miscalculation" and "not ... allow[ing] fully for temperature change over the past 2,000 years" -- the authors retracted the paper, stating they would "invest in the further work needed to correct these mistakes."
According to author Mark Siddall, though, it's just "one of those things that happens. People make mistakes and mistakes happen in science." The problem is, global warmists want to redistribute our nation's wealth and hamstring the world's economy based on theories full of such mistakes.
Despite the expanding evidentiary void, the UN is set to restart negotiations on a global climate change treaty. UN Climate Head Yvo de Boer (who recently announced his resignation, effective July 1) said the negotiating schedule would be intensified in hopes of reaching an agreement by year's end -- an agreement based, of course, on an ever-growing pile of mistakes.
