The hits just keep coming

Phil Jones, the Director of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA), which is the target of Climategate, in answer to a question from the BBC:

B - Do you agree that from 1995 to the present there has been no statistically-significant global warming

Yes, but only just.

I left off the ...yes but, weasel words that followed.

So, one of the leading proponents of anthropogenic global warming admits that there has been no warming for the past 15 years? But never mind, it is scientifically proven consensus that warming is happening.

Oh, and the IPCC made another little error of fact in its report, when it stated that 55% of the Netherlands was below sea level. The real percentage is 26. That's an exaggeration of just over 100%. But again, never mind, a report rife with errors "do(es) not affect the core conclusions that human activities, led by burning fossil fuels, are warming the globe."
