I waited a while to see if anyone else was going to post this. I guess not. :)

First, a couple of comments:

"The fact that the UN would publish such a report is a sign that the
counter evidence is too strong for them to lie about it. The truth is
actually still far from what they allow themselves to admit."

"The reason for global warming (as well as global cooling) is the
potential of multi-billion dollar grants from the US government to do
nothing more than just wait for the sun cycle to come around. .."

UN downgrades man's impact on the climate

Mankind has had less effect on global warming than previously
supposed, a United Nations report on climate change will claim next year.

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ...has reduced its
overall estimate of this effect by 25 per cent. ... The panel...has
lowered predictions of how much sea levels will rise in comparison
with its last report in 2001.

Scientists insist that the lower estimates for sea levels and the
human impact on global warming are simply a refinement due to better
data on how climate works...

The IPCC has been forced to halve its predictions for sea-level rise
by 2100, one of the key threats from climate change. It says improved
data have reduced the upper estimate from 34 in to 17 in.

It also says that the overall human effect on global warming since
the industrial revolution is less than had been thought, due to the
unexpected levels of cooling caused by aerosol sprays, which reflect
heat from the sun. ...

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.
