UN on Climategate: Uhhhhhh

The UN has apparently had something to say about the growing scandal about global warming data. Leaks have placed great doubt on the scientific "consensus" that unchecked, global warming will kill us all.

Even though leaked emails have shown that even many of the environmental scientists are fudging the numbers about warming, thew UN won't take them into account.

But of course, there won't be bias because of peer review. Peer review is an excellent tool to weed out incompetence, unless of course, everyone agrees on something:

Pachauri said the large number of contributors and rigorous peer review mechanism adopted by the IPCC meant that any bias would be rapidly uncovered.

"The processes in the IPCC are so robust, so inclusive, that even if an author or two has a particular bias it is completely unlikely that bias will find its way into the IPCC report," he said.

Well, that's reassuring.
