India rejects UN IPCC and its "evangelism"

For India, the melting of the Himalayan glacier would have serious consequences.  Now that the UN's claim that the glacier would melt by 2035 has been exposed as a hoax, the Indian government has responded:
The Indian government has moved to establish its own body to address and monitor science surrounding climate change, saying it "cannot rely" on the official United Nation panel.

The move is a severe blow to the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) following the revelation parts of its 3000 page 2007 report on climate science was not subjected to peer review.

A primary claim of the report was the Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035, but the claim was not repeated in any peer-reviewed studies and rebuffed by scientists.

India's environment minister Jairam Ramesh announced that the Indian government  will establish a separate National Institute of Himalayan Glaciology to monitor climate change in the region.

"There is a fine line between climate science and climate evangelism," Ramesh said. "I am for climate science." [Emph. added]
