I like this comic



And for the record, I think that the evidence is overwhelming that a) the climate is warming, and b) human activity is at least a significant cause of this. This big question is, by how much? 2-3 degrees C would probably be manageable (except if you're a Pacific island), but 5-6 degrees would drastically shift weather patterns worldwide. Based on the models to date (which are admittedly incomplete) I think 2-3 degrees is inevitable (goodbye Pacific islands) and 5-6 is increasingly likely by 2100.

On a lighter note, if you're not reading Stupid Comics (the work of our own davemerrill), this Xmas themed edition is a great place to start.

Anthropogenic global warming

I for one am not convinced of the "anthropogenic" part of global warming. Will a kind soul point me in the right direction to damning data that supports this assertion? I tried reading through the IPCC4 report and I found the anthropogenic claim to be poorly supported by the data presented.

Scientific American has a pretty good summation at the link below.
