Oh Really, Phil?

On publication of the "no significant warming for no 16 years" from HADCRUT 4:-
Some climate scientists, such as Professor Phil Jones, director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, last week dismissed the significance of the plateau, saying that 15 or 16 years is too short a period from which to draw conclusions
From a ClimateGate memo (07/05/2009) from Phil Jones:-
Bottom line - the no upward trend has to continue for a total of 15 years before
we get worried.

    Shouldn't Prof Jones said '...before we stop being worried'? Presumably he would rather see the planet fry than be proven wrong.
