Is it warm in here - or is it just the UN?

I bet this doesn't get a whole lot of coverage on blogging torries

It is now beyond doubt that the Earth's climate is warming and it is "very likely" that most of the increase since the mid-20th century is the result of mankind's activities, a panel of UN scientists reported today.

But it gets even better (or worse, depending on how you look at it)

Achim Steiner, director general of the UN Environment Programme, said the report was a "critical milestone" and Feb 2 2007 would be remembered as "the day the question mark was removed" from the question of whether mankind was warming the planet.

If the environment wasn't on Canadians' minds before, reports like this will put it there
