India's 'Arrogant' Global Warming Denial of Melting Glaciers

We pollute, as we suck our cheroot.
Only a dodo, would say yes to Kyoto.

So give us more H-1B
And polyunsaturated ghee

And we will show you American bastards who’s boss!




India's 'Melting Glacier Deniers' at Odds with Al Gore


Ain't No Glaciers on Me, India (Rooters) – Do US climate change scientists ROCK, or what? 

Amidst a rising sea of climate change deniers, this guardian.co.uk article reports that a leading climate scientist today accused the Indian environment ministry of "arrogance" after the release of a government report claiming that there is no evidence climate change has caused "abnormal" shrinking of Himalayan glaciers. The report states that the environmental minister of India, Jairam Ramesh, is prepared to take on the “doomsday scenarios of Al Gore and the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)." More from the Guardian:

Jairam Ramesh, India's environment minister, released the controversial report in Delhi, saying it would "challenge the conventional wisdom" about melting ice in the mountains. Two years ago, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the UN agency which evaluates the risk from global warming, warned the glaciers were receding faster than in any other part of the world and could "disappear altogether by 2035 if not sooner".”

LWOH readers will recall this recent post about Ramesh's dismissal of scientists’ predictions that Himalayan glaciers “might disappear within 40 years as a result of global warming” as the environmental minister insisted that “science has its limitations.” Perhaps, but not Gore's scientific posse...Surely, since Al Gore's venture capital firm's portfolio companies and related contractors are  advocates/users of replacing American scientists and computer programmers with cheap Indian labor via outsourcing/insourcing, now would be an ideal, politically expedient opportunity for bipartisan corporate blowhards across the country to bloody stop the avalanche of this human slave-trade trafficking monster the industry has created between India and the US by returning those stolen jobs to educated American citizens.
