Obama: "irreversible catastrophe" that reversed itself 10 years ago...

Someone needs to tell Captain Awesome that even the UN's own lead author on the IPCC has reversed himself on global warming or climate change or whatever the hell its being called now...
Latif is one of the leading climate modellers in the world. He is the recipient of several international climate-study prizes and a lead author for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He has contributed significantly to the IPCC's last two five-year reports that have stated unequivocally that man-made greenhouse emissions are causing the planet to warm dangerously.

Yet last week in Geneva, at the UN's World Climate Conference--an annual gathering of the so-called "scientific consensus" on man-made climate change --Latif conceded the Earth has not warmed for nearly a decade and that we are likely entering "one or even two decades during which temperatures cool."

What? The earth has been cooling for the last 10 years and we may even be entering a one or two decade period of cooling? I haven't heard this. So I guess the "irreversible catastrophe" has been in fact reversed and is no longer a pending catastrophe! Thank goodness!
