Read here. Another failed prediction from "consensus" science of the IPCC. New research discovers that many of the region's rivers are not highly impacted from glacier melt, thus the fear of water supply shortage was not only wrong, it was purposefully overblown.
In addition, it was revealed that the climate models do a terrible job assessing climate change impact on monsoon rainfall. The IPCC and climate models: literally, the blind-leading-the-blind.
"Although global warming is expected to shrink glaciers in the Himalayas and other high mountains in Central Asia, the declining ice will have less overall impact on the region's water supplies than previously believed, a study concludes.....Combining these and looking at averages from five climate models, Immerzeel and colleagues concluded that the change in upstream water inputs will range from a decrease of 19.6% for the Brahmaputra to a 9.5% increase for the Yellow River. The latter, he notes, is due to increased winter rains. "The Yellow River depends only marginally on meltwater," he says, "and, on average, the models project an increase in winter precipitation in the Yellow River basin."....."What this means, Armstrong says, is that river flows are dominated by seasonal rains. "The glaciers are tiny, compared with the monsoon," he says."....."One caveat is that climate models don't fare well at simulating the effect of warming on Asian rainfall. "There's still a lot of research going into the effect of climate change on the behaviour of the monsoon,"
