UN downgrades man's impact on the climate
"Mankind has had less effect on global warming than previously supposed, a United Nations report on climate change will claim next year.

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says there can be little doubt that humans are responsible for warming the planet, but the organisation has reduced its overall estimate of this effect by 25 per cent."

i'm shocked, shocked! Of course if you read on you'll see the UN is sticking to overblown claims about how much the temperature "may" rise in the future ... but they have downgraded their previous [irrationally high] estimate of how much sea levels "may" rise (why? because measuring the rate of sea level change is easy and its still rising about an inch every fifteen years, just like it was a hundred years ago.) This is a major blow to global warming psychos, because this is their own people, the very scientists who profit from environmental hysteria, moderating their climate predictions.
