Occasionally alarmists have said that it doesn't actually say what it says. Here is what it says:
There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.
Expect not to see this reported in the media & possibly even for them to continue describing the alarmists as the "consensus". To be fair they are the consensus among politicians of the main parties & the controllers of the media, but obviously not of scientists.
Oregon Petition Warmed Over
I particularly enjoy the comment trail...
Im worried about fish stocks, as I love catching fish, with global warmiong they will boil away.
"Satellite images are showing that the cold spell is helping the sea ice expand in coverage by about 2 million square kilometres, compared to the average winter coverage in the previous three years"
Perhaps it is time for the "environmental" crowd to start warning us that we must give up modern technology to prevent an ice age, as they did in the 1970s rather than giving up modern technology to prevent catastrophic warming as they are now doing.
