Forgive me if I'm naive, but isn't this review of the current scientific 
literature and consensus exactly what the IPCC was established for and 
has been doing for a long time now? Instead of wasting our time on all 
these hold-out skirmishes comparable to the cook fringes fighting 
evolutionary theory, why not pay a little more attention to the IPCC 
reports which really represent middle of the road scientific consensus.
