Thursday, December 27, 2012 is reporting something particularly awful.

According to this report, "the world's most authoritative voice on climate science has consistently understated the rate and intensity of climate change and the danger those impacts represent."

Ye gods.  Really - that's the kind of language that is appropriate here.  Ye gods!  Particularly in light of recent reports of how much more quickly the arctic ice is melting than "previously predicted."  By who?  Maybe these "previous predictions" were by the IPCC?
