|Validation! Climate Establishment admits there's little to no warming|

We can mark this as a historic moment in the fight to expose the truth behind Global Warming alarmism. The Climate Establishment has admitted to what skeptics have been saying for a decade, the earth is not warming.
A number of researchers, including a former IPCC lead author and CRU's Phil Jones, came forward to say that not only is the temperature data unreliable, but what data that has been gathered points to little or no warming since 1995.
Jones, who is at the center of the Climategate emails, recently admitted that the medievil warming period was much warmer than current times, suggesting that Global Warming is not a man-made phenomenon. Jones, who encouraged colleagues to delete records to avoid other scientists questioning his findings, went on to say that in the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.
This is telling given that much of the temperature data was biased to support warming trends. Ross McKitrick, an economics professor who was featured in Not Evil Just Wrong, has said that a lot of the temperature rises are coming from sites that were undergoing urbanization and land development.
“We concluded, with overwhelming statistical significance, that the IPCC’s climate data are contaminated with surface effects from industrialization and data quality problems. These add up to a large warming bias,” said McKitrick
In response, Dr Vicky Pope, head of climate change advice at the Met Office, has said that new data says the world is warming up faster than she first predicted. But I thought the only heat she'd be feeling was that the BBC is firing the Met Office for having a warming bias.
“The temperature records cannot be relied on as indicators of global change,” said John Christy, professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, a former lead author on the IPCC.
