If you still don't believe that global warming is man-made, read the report for yourself. Then come on here and claim that you know more than all the scientists who compiled the information in the report.

The ny times article summarizing the report is at
http://www.nytimes.com/...page&oref=slogin

The link to the report summary for policymakers is at
http://www.ipcc.ch/
under the heading "Information for Press"

Here you go again...letting facts get in the way of opinion

Most common reactions to fact
1) denial...most never get passed this phase; regardless of proof
2) lack of concern...'even if it's true, it's not going to affect me, so why should I care'

From the Guardian:

Scientists offered cash to dispute climate study

In reply to:
Scientists and economists have been offered $10,000 each by a lobby group funded by one of the world's largest oil companies to undermine a major climate change report due to be published today.
Letters sent by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), an ExxonMobil-funded thinktank with close links to the Bush administration, offered the payments for articles that emphasise the shortcomings of a report from the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

In reply to:
The letters, sent to scientists in Britain, the US and elsewhere, attack the UN's panel as "resistant to reasonable criticism and dissent and prone to summary conclusions that are poorly supported by the analytical work" and ask for essays that "thoughtfully explore the limitations of climate model outputs".

Note that these letters were sent out before the report was released.
