Global Warming Researcher Says Papers Mischaracterize His Work

A climate change researcher has indicated his unhappiness with coverage and interpretation of his work in the Daily Mail. Mojib Latif says that the paper's story about his work in The Mail on Sunday mischaracterizes it; Dr. Latif says followup stories in the Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph also misrepresent his research as not supporting the current consensus on global warming. 

Dr. Latif told the Guardian, "It comes as a surprise to me that people would try to use my statements to try to dispute the nature of global warming. I believe in manmade global warming. I have said that if my name was not Mojib Latif it would be global warming."
