UN Still Going On About 'Global Warming...'

Ugh, the UN is still bitching about global warming. According to them, it's getting serious!

The draft conclusion that the link [between the burning of fossil fuels and the rise in global temperature] is "very likely" would mark a strengthening from "likely" in the 2001 report -- a probability of 66-90 percent.
Oh no! From "likely" to "very likely!" I'm sorry, but this is science? Sure, I'll believe that...

Meanwhile, the story had this hidden gem:
The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) may have some good news, however, by toning down chances of the biggest temperature and sea level rises projected in the IPCC's previous 2001 study, the sources said.
That's got to be, like, the billionth time they've had to revise their predicted outcomes, especially with regard to the sea level. Every year they realize they were wrong about something, but it only seems to strengthen their resolve to find more junk-data.
