    UN cuts estimate of AIDS cases by 16%
    By Donald G. McNeil Jr. Published: November 20, 2007

    The United Nations' AIDS-fighting agency acknowledges in a new report that it overestimated the size of the epidemic and that new infections with the deadly virus have been dropping each year since they peaked around 2000.



    What I found most interesting was the admission of the flawed statistical models used to get estimates in the first place.

    Now if they would just do the same for their idiotic global warming runaway scare tactics.

    As a republican, I'm sure you realize that the global warming scare tactics are actually hurting the economies of middle eastern countries and putting the fuel money into the pockets of developed and educated nations, like the United States of America.
