"In 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a global initiative backed in part by the United Nations affirmed what many have come to believe: The earth is warming and humans play a role in this warming."

The foundation of the IPCC report was tens of thousands of science papers by climatologists. The fact that it was assembled into a report by a branch of the UN is a red herring. And yes. The report clearly states that human industry is responsible for 'most' of the warming.

"Moreover, Dr. Jerry R. Shubel, president and CEO of the Aquarium of the Pacific and climate change expert, says,“The overwhelming majority of climate scientists agree that human-caused global warming is happening...”

A clear statement from a scientist pointing to the 97%+ agreement within the science community.

"Currently, consensus opinion seems to weight in favor of the reality of global warming."

Followed by a bogus 'weak ass' confirmation that is basically meaningless.

This piece is carefully crafted spin and spam that serves no purpose beyond adding a bit more mud.

Also note that there is nothing 'complex' about it. AGW is a fairly simple process or balance with solar influx. Climate change in RESPONSE to AGW is a bit more of a puzzle. Even the title here is deceptive spin.

True, all that except 'weigh' instead of "weight."

Everything that Naveed Saleh has learned & is interested in, indicates that his grasp of AGW is, indeed, insignificant, thus his title, The Complexity of Global Warming.

Currently, consensus
"opinion"
seems to weight in favor of the reality of global warming. So, for argument’s sake, let's accept the conclusion that climate change is occurring and humans are partly to blame.

So instead of fact we will have to accept scientific science fiction opinion and conclusion.

Correct.

It's the diarrhea troll that is clueless spammer after my correction.

Add English to its lacking science, mathematics, logic, etc.

Wrong again spacedoutblues it's the meds your on needs correction. You never posted your peer reviewed published work. To date all you have is cut and paste scientific science fiction useless babble. You contracted a case of diarrhea from the "pinheadlitesout" get you head out of it's behind and seek immediate attention from a doctor.

Yes indeed!
"AGW is a fairly simple process".
Reversing AGW is, also, a fairly simple (not to be confused with 'easy') process...
Step 1: remove 49 ppm of CO2 from air...
Step 2: Oh, wait... There is no step 2- "Problem" solved!

Well, not 'solved' since there will be residual heating and a long recovery, but it will seriously minimize the overall costs relative to the 'ignorance is bliss' alterntive.
