The bulk of informed opinion seems to be that the actual case may be
worse than the worst estimates. Problem is we're conducting a fiendishly
complex experiment while living in the test tube. Not a wise risk to
I discount credibility in proportion to money. The most money, by far,
is with the polluters and climate change sceptics. More money, greater
discount, less credibility.
