You got to accelerate the positive
Decelerate the negative
Larch on to the affirmative
And don’t fail to Hide the Decline.

Maybe Ban Ki-moon has come to realize the decline is real and a change in direction requires acceleration? Of course, a decline could mean that current policies are working and is excited by the belief that much more of the same would be better.
OTOH, “worse than we thought” might mean: temps have been going down and it’s going to make convincing harder so the global warming case has accelerated before it’s too late.
I saw the Blitzer/Friedman thing. My take is Blitzer ate the whole thing.

Or to put it more succinctly, as an aged professor said to me many years ago over something else but not unlike except in scale: ‘Their fond hope is that over the entire series the positive errors will cancel out the negative ones leaving a true value. Some hope!’
