Warming Less Pronounced, Less Dangerous

It comes as no shock to me, but surprisingly many of the leading scientists behind the IPCC report are finally admitting to a couple of the problems with the catastrophic warming theory. Let me start with the fact that over the last 40 years we have seen warming and its probably due to C02. However, the only reliable measure appears to me to be the satellite data which shows a maximum of about 0.6 degrees Celsius over that time.

From the UK Daily Mail about Phil Jones of University of East Anglia:

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.

And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.

And now, some IPCC scientists are finally agreeing that the surface stations aren't reliable due to significant issues with how and where the stations are cited and how urban heat island effects have grown up around them.

It's good to see some actual science occurring which here is invalidation of incorrect conclusions based on further testing and study. All that said, can we build a bunch more nuclear power plants and slow down admitting C02, and much worse things like radioactivity from coal?
