Climate scientists are discussing why surface temperatures haven't been increasing quite so rapidly recently, but the people determined not to take action on AGW are deliberately misunderstanding and misinterpreting the discussion, as this link proves.Scientific consensus:
Climate science says the slow-down may be an indication of lower sensitivity, or it may be an indication of natural variability. As we have evidence that natural variability (more heat entering the deep ocean, more volcanic activity causing cooling), the lower sensitivity argument may be a bit premature.
Those determined not to take action on AGW see only one side of the discussion- the side that supports what they already want to do of course.
The idea of consensus over climate sensitivity is a straw man- it's something still subject to scientific debate- but the misinterpretation of the debate is very real.
The Economist's article is halfway decent.
With a few flaws.
The Australian's article is agenda driven distortion.
