Every little bit counts

This is hardly a huge victory against the Global Warmerists, but I think it's a sign that Climategate has had an impact:

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled that the adverts – which were based on the children's poems Jack and Jill and Rub-A-Dub-Dub – made exaggerated claims about the threat to Britain from global warming.

In definitely asserting that climate change would cause flooding and drought the adverts went beyond mainstream scientific consensus, the watchdog said.

It noted that predictions about the potential global impact of global warming made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) "involved uncertainties" that the adverts failed to reflect.

 

The article states that the rebuke came in part from public complaints.

I'm far from certain, but it sounds to me like the Climategate scandal has opened the door to stuff like this. I mean, can you imagine something like this happening, say, a couple of years ago?
