"UN downgrades man's impact on the climate"

December 10, 2006

So, apparently the scientists at the UN have reassessed the impact humans have on global warming:

It is still full of scare mongering, but the eco-ideologues have been been forced to admit that their calculations are wildly off in some respects. Look for more of these sorts of 'downgrades' in the future, until the next environmental scare can be cooked up.

The money line at the end:
However, Julian Morris, executive director of the International Policy Network, urged governments to be cautious. "There needs to be better data before billions of pounds are spent on policy measures that may have little impact," he said.

    The same article also states:

    "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. ... temperatures will rise by up to 4.5 C during the next 100 years, bringing more frequent heat waves and storms. ... the climate is almost certain to warm by at least 1.5 C during the next 100 years ... The report paints a bleak picture for future generations unless greenhouse gas emissions are reduced"

    They also predict a 17 inch sea level rise in under 95 years (which is a blink, time-wise) - and these are amongst the most OPTIMISTIC scientists? Doesn't sound good to me.
