Many climate change skeptics are hailing an article from last week's UK Telegraph, which proclaims "UN downgrades man's impact on the climate," as the "smoking gun" which supports their disbelief: Sen. James Inhofe, for instance,claims that the preview of the report (which will be published in February) proves his assertion that "Predictions of man-made catastrophic global warming are simply unsustainable." As DeSmog Blog notes though, that reading of the article requires some cherry-picking, as it also reports that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change "says there can be little doubt that humans are responsible for warming the planet," and that their downgrading of human impact by 25%, as well as their lowering of sea level estimates, represents "...a refinement due to better data on how climate works rather than a reduction in the risk posed by global warming":
One leading UK climate scientist, who asked not to be named due to the sensitivity surrounding the report before it is published, said: "The bottom line is that the climate is still warming while our greenhouse gas emissions have accelerated, so we are storing up problems for ourselves in the future."
