    Doesn't mean that there is no link only that the scientific corellation wasn't strong enough to draw a conclusion.

    Of course, our resident flat earthers will claim this as a victory

    the IPCC is backing away from fraudulant 'scientific' reports that got them into this mess, and are being savaged by the faithful. Gotta love it.

    ...is a natural happening...as is global cooling...both of which will occur no matter what we do.

    It's the taxing idiots and shysters that want to prove we're doing it to ourselves.

    This particular study did not provide enough evidence. There is overwhelming evidence from other sources to support global warming.

    The flat earthers just won't accept it. "Hey, it still snows in the winter......there can't be global warming"
