IPCC "peer-reviewed" source: Climbing Magazine

From the "you just can't make this stuff up dept.," the latest revelation of very-non-peer-reviewed research in the IPCC reports is a citation to an article in Climbing magazine claiming decreased ice on mountaintops. From, which also reveals another source of IPCC very-non-peer-reviewed research from a student's dissertation. 
(image was altered to add "IPCC" and "lack of")
Meanwhile, the railroad engineer & smut novelist head of the IPCC, Rajendra K. Pachauri recently commented on the "pristine" nature of IPCC reports: "The IPCC relies entirely on peer reviewed literature in carrying out its assessment" and "The entire report writing process of the IPCC is subjected to extensive and repeated review by experts as well as governments."

In other news, Pachauri is not restricting his fiction writing to IPCC reports, having just published a smutty romance  novel. 

And in related news, Pachauri prefers his fossil-fuel chauffeured car to his chauffeured electric car,  provided to him for his 1 mile daily commute from his £4.5 million home to his office, but urges others to reduce their carbon footprints and to take public transportation, cycle, or walk.
