Leading UK scientific body admits

climate change "uncertainties"

It's not possible to determine how the climate
will change in the future

30 Sep 10 - The Royal Society, the leading scientific body in the UK, has been forced to rewrite its guide on climate.

The new guide now admits that there are some 'uncertainties' regarding the science behind climate change, and avoids making any predictions about the possible impacts of climate change.

"It is not possible to determine exactly how much the Earth will warm or exactly how the climate will change in the future," the Royal Society now acknowledges.

The rewrite came after 43 members rebelled, complaining that the previous version failed to take into account the opinion of climate change skeptics.

It even advises caution in making projections about rising sea levels. "Similarly, the possibility of large changes in the circulation of the North Atlantic Ocean cannot be assessed with confidence."

Even more revealing, according to this article in the Daily Mail Online, the Royal Society also agrees "that the warming trend of the 1980s and 90s has come to a halt in the last ten years."

That's what the article says, quoting Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, but in reading the actual document I don't see those words.

30 Sep 10 - The Royal Society says there is “strong evidence”
that the warming of the Earth over the past half-century was
caused largely by human activity. "The fact is there is no such
evidence," says astrophysicist Piers Corbyn. "This is a false claim."
