According to MIT Professor Richard Lindzen, one of the National 
Research Council global warming panelist and lead author on the new 
UN report: "Our primary conclusion was that despite some knowledge 
and some agreement, the science is by no means settled. We are quite 
confident (1) that global mean temperature is about 0.5 degrees 
Celsius higher than a century ago; (2) that atmospheric levels of 
carbon dioxide have risen over the past two centuries; and (3) that 
carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas whose increase is likely to warm 
the earth. But-- and I cannot stress this enough -- we are NOT in a 
position to confidently attribute past climate change to carbon 
dioxide or to forecast what the climate will be in the future."

Unfortunately the press and those who wrote so-called "summaries" of 
the UN report did not understand or wanted to ignore how little is 
truly known! Sunspot activity does correlate almost perfectly with 
mean earth temperatures over the last 150 years, so it seems clear 
that it is unlikely that there is a meaningful anthropomorphic factor 
associated with the average temperature of the earth. Also, an 
increase of only 0.5 degrees Celsius in 100 years is not alarming.
