Ah, Tibet. No place on earth is more adept at driving the elite completely bonkers. Despite six decades of occupation from the Tom-Friedman-approved Chinese Communist Party, the Tibetan people continue to resist the loss of their country.
Now, even the glaciers in Tibet refuse to play ball with the chattering classes (Times of London):
The UN’s top climate change body has issued an unprecedented apology over its flawed prediction that Himalayan glaciers were likely to disappear by 2035.
. . .
The 2007 report, which won the panel the Nobel Peace Prize, said that the probability of Himalayan glaciers “disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high”. It caused shock in Asia, where about two billion people depend on meltwater from Himalayan glaciers for their fresh water supplies during the dry seasons.
