Never mind: IPCC claim of 750 million people killed by global warming within 22 years falsified by new paper

According to news reports based upon the IPCC AR5 report, global warming is going to "claim" 750 million people within the next 22 years due to decreased water supplies from the Himalayas. However, a peer-reviewed paper published in Nature Geoscience last month [long after the cutoff date for inclusion] instead finds that water supplies from the Himalayas will increase during the 21st century.

Yet another example of why the journal Nature says, "The IPCC’s mega-assessments are out of date by the time they hit the streets," and AR5 will be dead on arrival.
