Thesis Study - 6th Year of Architecture

It is my final year at University and I am working on my thesis project. My chosen thesis is about the impact of sustainable living in an urban environment and how an 'Urban Village' might achieve such a goal as providing food for its occupants.

Follow me on my journey as I complete this project and maybe even win a prize, gain some sort of recognition, or maybe you'll just enjoy looking at the pretty pictures I produce! Either way, I hope you enjoy looking at my work and the comments I have to share.

Global Warming report used by Governments based on a telephone call?

So now its come out that the 2035 prediction of the Himalayan glaciers melting was based entirely on speculation of one man, 8 years prior to when the IPCC issued their report in 2007...  It was a phone call made by New Scientist magazine interviewed Syed Hasnain, Indian scientist, over the phone in 1999 for an article on the subject - he merely speculated that the Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035. A few years later, the IPCC base a report which was based on another report, based on the New Scientist article, and say that the chance of it happening is greater than 90%. 

Insert foot firmly in mouth.

Oh scientific community, how are the mainstream media going to take this now?.. Not to mention Global Warming activists around the world! I was looking forward to increased taxes and turning my computer/tv off at night in order to combat this (fake) man-made global warming.

Looks like the global warming fiasco has yet another dent in its highly bullshined exterior. 

Any comments?

I think its obscene that such information was taken for actual fact when it was just 'speculation'. It will most likely throw many of the global warming fans off course. I do still believe we need to reduce the pollution we are causing to the planet.
