U.N. Panel's Glacier-Disaster Claims Melting Away From Fox News

The U.N. is taking heat for its claim that the Himalayas will vanish by 2035 due to global warming; The UN admitted it did not get this claim from peer reviewed studies.

The U.N. may have taken a piece of its report from Carrie W. Snodgrass of Ohio Country Day's sixth grade class, who posted her entry to the Ohio Harvest Newspaper's "Little Sprouts Writing Competition", to the web.

Her essay " The Himalayas will be gone by 2035 if we don't compost soon" was also cited by Al Gore in An Inconvenient Truth.

"I am so sorry for the trouble I caused. And the funny thing is I hate biology", Ms. Snodgrass explained.
