We're all doomed!

According to a Met Office study, global temperatures will plateau over the next couple of years before recommencing an inexorable upward movement. All sorts of dire things are in store for us - floods, droughts, you name it.

I'm not a climate-change sceptic, I simply don't know either way. I wonder if scientists do either. At any rate we'll soon have the empirical evidence ourselves as we live through the next few years. It seems that scientific opinions on what is happening vary wildly and that a huge battle is raging to win over governments and populations to a belief in one particular scenario (of future disasters, naturally). I repeat, I'm not a 'sceptic' - I prefer to think of myself as 'open-minded'.
