I Am Not Going To Say 'I Told You So'

but it is starting to look that way when it comes to man made global warming, as regular readers to our blog know I have always challenged the man made global warming theory and the impracticability and cost of recycling in Western countries, well it has happened, the top UN climate official said today that he will be resigning after nearly four years in the post, the reason given is that Nations failed to broker a deal at the climate change summit in Copenhagen in December, Mr de Boer's resignation comes as the case for global warming comes under attack, The United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently came under fire when scientists cast doubt on its claim that the evidence for global warming is 'unequivocal' some researchers, including a former IPCC report author, have said that widespread and systematic tampering of the data mean the case for global warming has been grossly overstated, the panel has also been caught making unfounded claims several times in recent weeks, these include using a student's essay and an article from a climbing magazine to make claims about reductions in ice on mountains around the world in a report used by governments around the world to set environmental policy, the academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon, again see a much earlier blog about the Maunder Minimum and lack of sunspots, Professor Phil Jones added that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming, the partial agreement reached in Copenhagen, brokered by President Barack Obama, 'was very significant,' de Boer said, but he acknowledged frustration that the deal fell short of consensus and was merely 'noted' rather than formally adopted by all countries, 'We were about an inch away from a formal agreement. It was basically in our grasp, but it didn't happen,' he said. 'So that was a pity', as one commentator noted, "it seems that we were 'only an inch away' from spending untold Trillions on unwarranted AGW 'counter measures' and impoverishing Billions of humankind," I could not have put it better myself.
