Humans are significantly altering the global climate, but in a variety
of diverse ways beyond the radiative effect of carbon dioxide. The IPCC
assessments have been too conservative in recognizing the importance of
these human climate forcings as they alter regional and global climate.
These assessments have also not communicated the inability of the models
to accurately forecast the spread of possibilities of future climate.
The forecasts, therefore, do not provide any skill in quantifying the
impact of different mitigation strategies on the actual climate response
that would occur.."

I am not a lawyer; the debates I read involved money bets(!) by
protagonists/apologists against their opponents (see above). I hope that
Peak Oil will coincide with a reduction of emissions and thus a solution
to the problem. Believing we can change the weather is hardly going to
make it happen.
