Global Warming pause 'central' to IPCC report - or rather, that's what some people want it to be. Certainly, be good to see a better explanation of how natural factors still affect climate and global temperature, as we have seen in recent years with negative PDO and reduced solar activity, as well as other things (including perhaps increased pollution) countering some of the predicted warming from CO2 emissions and related feedbacks. The big question for those sceptical of AGW is: why aren't we cooling then?
Are ideas to cool the planet realistic? - more to the point, are they at risk of falling foul of the law of unintended consequences? And is the money better spend countering other things such as massive deforestation and pollution? Poverty? And in improving the Victorian technology we still rely so much upon?
