Latest United Nations Five Year Report — What to Think?

I have not posted on climate change for quite awhile as I continue writing the sequel to A Truthful Myth, but it’s impossible to refrain. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change just issued its summary statement, with no details yet released, that with 95% confidence 97% of climate scientists agree that humans have caused most, and probably all, the rapid global warming that has occurred over the last 60 years.  They briefly mention that the absence of world-wide average warming over the last 15 years is just a “pause”. All this leads me to think that the premise of my novel – that “science is never done” – holds even truer and that more and better science is still needed even as we take  non-compulsive steps to mitigate an over reliance on fossil fuels.
