More Inconvenient Propagandist Nonsense

Some people—overly credulous when accepting fictions from the IPCC or Al Gore, but overly sceptical when criticising Alfred’s review of his SAH class—have cast doubts on Alfred’s account because he refers to the teacher claiming that the seas would rise by 20 feet.  See for instance, Bill’s comment:  he scoffs, “You go to school in Tasmania and they’re talking to you about measurements in feet?”  Yes, Bill, that’s because the teacher—from laziness, or incompetence, or both—was uncritically relying on a discredited, American source.
At the time of Alfred’s review the teacher had not permitted students to keep hand-outs, but she has since relented.  One hand-out was a photocopy of this page, which she also displayed in a PowerPoint presentation; it comes from a PDF supplied by ClimateCrisis.net, “AIT in the Classroom:  A series of lessons designed for science classrooms as a companion to the documentary An Inconvenient Truth”, p. 30:

Well, next the IPPC will be claiming that the Himalayan glaciers will all be gone by 2035. Gosh, they already did that too....
"Last week, the IPCC, led by its increasingly controversial chairman, Dr Rajendra Pachauri, was forced to issue an unprecedented admission: the statement in its 2007 report that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035 had no scientific basis, and its inclusion in the report reflected a "poor application" of IPCC procedures."
