"We know a great deal of the mechanism by which CO2 causes warming," said Field, the Carnegie scientist. "There is still uncertainty about how much a range of feedbacks either amplify or suppress that warming."

Yep.. it's an open-ended problem with mysteries ahead while man-made global warming rages on.. What ya gonna do with that!

Might one suggest that there may be an immense conflict in the claims asserted by some on this thread.

So... Which is it? "...uncertainty about how much a range of feedbacks either amplify or suppress that warming."
OR: "...man-made global warming rages on"?

You guys sure can sound silly when justifying your faith :-)
