Just chill

india Updated: Jan 20, 2010 23:18 IST

Why on earth have you been staring at those ice cubes for so long?

Oh, just wanted to see whether the melting point of ice in normal pressure is really just above O°Celsius or not.

And why shouldn’t it be?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has admitted that its prediction about Himalayan glaciers vanishing by 2035 because of climate change is bunkum.

But surely, that doesn’t mean that global warming is fictional?

Well, IPCC Chairman R.K. Pachauri has just come out with a novel, so...

I think it’s brave of the IPCC to admit its mistake.

But if the IPCC scientists fudged the data about glacial melting, what choice did they have but to come clean after being exposed?

Well, they could have attacked those who exposed the findings as ‘climate change deniers’.

Hey, what are you doing?!

Why, pouring the ice into my drink, of course.

Do say: The heat is on.

Don’t say: Thomas Friedman’s just been exposed! The world’s not flat, it’s round.
