    U.N. Panel to blame mankind for global warming, explain 'hiatus'[W;96]

    (Reuters) - A United Nations panel of experts met on Monday to review a draft report that raises the probability that climate change is man-made to 95 percent and warns of ever more extreme weather unless governments take strong action.

    Scientists and officials from more than 110 governments began a four-day meeting in Stockholm to edit and approve the 31-page draft that also tries to explain a "hiatus" in the pace of global warming this century despite rising greenhouse gas emissions.

    Who cares?
    We should run out of fossil-fuels in the next century, anyway.
    Problem solved.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Does that include the several hundred year supply America is sitting on alone?

    Okay.....we'll run out of fossil-fuels in the next FEW centuries.
    Problem solved.
    World wide starvation will probably wipe us out before then.
    Anyway, the point is, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions isn't going to happen.
    Current C02 levels wouldn't be reduced for decades, even if we stopped burning fossil-fuels completely.
    Better to adjust for the possible consequences.
    Bye-bye Bangladesh.

    We should be researching ways to sustain ourselves which do not rely so heavily on organic hydrocarbons,
    but not because of the specter raised by the IPCC.
    Our organic hydrocarbons have a long term finite supply, but the short term extraction cost will rise.
    At some point, the higher cost will limit their use to essential food production and transport.
    (We currently do not have a way to grow food in the quantity necessary without oil)
    The AGW proponents should look on the bright side, we are much more likely to run out of fresh water before Co2 heats the planet
    beyond our tolerance

    I think the scientists are emitting confused signals. Until that changes, I would only vote for more research. Maybe the UN should mandate all the wise men into conclave and leave them there, till they can make up their minds.
