Question by Conservative Agenda: Was the IPCC wrong to threaten 1.3 billion people who live in the Himalayan basin to advance their agenda?
Some of the world’s major rivers, the Indus, the Ganges, the Brahmaputra, and the Yangtze, rise in the Himalayas, and their combined drainage basin is home to some 1.3 billion people, including the people of Bangladesh.

‘ It seems strange that you cavil at gray literature while citing a newspaper editorial as your source.”

Articles in the gray literature are not always wrong. Most of it consist of government publications. As long as there is no pressure put on the agency from the White House (“W”e “W”on’t mention names.), the publications are usually as accurate at those in the peer-reviewed literature. It seems strange that you cavil at gray literature while citing a newspaper editorial as your source.
