...and has been discredited as a combination of intentionally fudging the figures for a biased article and just basic misinterpretation of the report due to bad research and ignorance of the science.

Surprise, surprise.

Guess Fox has run off at the mouth over nothin' agin'.

The world has warmed 0.05 degrees Celsius (0.09 sFahrenheit) per decade over the past 15 years, a fraction of the 0.2ºC (0.36ºF) per decade rate confidently predicted by the U.N. six years ago, according to a leaked copy of the foremost climate report in the world.

“The rate of warming over the past 15 years (0.05°C per decade) is smaller than the trend since 1951 (0.12°C per decade),” the draft report states.

That’s the upshot of a new study in the journal Nature Climate Change

that compared 117 climate predictions made in the 1990's to the actual amount of warming. Out of 117 predictions, the study’s author told FoxNews.com, three were roughly accurate and 114 overestimated the amount of warming. On average, the predictions forecasted two times more global warming than actually occurred.

Also there's this:

About a million more square miles of ocean are covered in ice in 2013 than in 2012, a whopping 60 percent increase -- and a dramatic deviation from predictions of an "ice-free Arctic in 2013,"

The UN will officially release the full report soon. Some how this information was leaked out ahead of the report. They are scrambling to try and rewrite the reports to make them not as damaging to the AGW predictions.
