    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will release a report on September 27 that scales back the severity of the global warming threat. Emails leaked to the Associated Press show some governments, including the United States, tried to make the IPCC change their report to downplay the slowdown in warming.

    Germany called for the reference to the slowdown to be deleted, saying a time span of 10 to 15 years was misleading in the context of climate change, which is measured over decades and centuries.

    The U.S. also urged the authors to include the "leading hypothesis" that the reduction in warming is linked to more heat being transferred to the deep ocean.

    Belgium objected to using 1998 as a starting year for any statistics. That year was exceptionally warm, so any graph showing global temperatures starting with 1998 looks flat. Using 1999 or 2000 as a starting year would yield a more upward-pointing curve. In fact, every year after 2000 has been warmer than the year 2000.

    Hungary worried the report would provide ammunition for skeptics.

    Don't worry, Revmitchell, Obama is still going to try to raise everyone's electric bill by forcing the implementation of impractical technology of capturing and burying carbon emissions from coal-using electric plants. The Democrats don't want little things like no facts (about global warming) interfering with their grand plan to remake the cosmos and to develop a Shangri-La here and now with themselves in charge. After all, the Ivy League knows best....

    This can't be true Rev. Everyone knows there's no such thing as a global conspiracy. At least that's what I keep being told.
