Andrei The Titanic sinking more slowly than expected

The title of this post is a quote taken from an AP story Stuff is currently running with.

Its a story which is not News to all savvy NZ Conservative readers who will have been aware for days that the IPCC has been forced to admit that their report on the decline of Himalayan glaciers is way off the mark. Still the fact that Stuff is running with it, even if it is several days old is progress of sorts.

But back to the quote which finishes off the story as posted on Stuff
A number of scientists pointed out that at the end of the day, no one is disputing the Himalayan glaciers are shrinking.

"What is happening now is comparable with the Titanic sinking more slowly than expected," de Boer said in his e-mail. "But that does not alter the inevitable consequences, unless rigorous action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is taken."
Its quite sad really, what is sinking is Global Warming hysteria which is now taken seriously, well, by practically no-one.

But there is still no sign of the government repealing that ridiculous ETS legislation. Sigh.

Yes, if the "guess" is correct (the claim was not backed by scientific study) then the Himalayan Glaciers may have 300 years of melt time.

More than enough time to pipe the UK winters over there.

I've never known leftists to willingly give up on a new tax, but then you supposedly have a conservative government.
