The debate on climate change often gets into the chalenging of data sets and the way these are interperated.
The "consensus" is often quoted.
This consensus has to be the IPCC's report(s), surely. There are many other articles which get sighted as some sort of authority on what the consensus is but lets stick to the actual IPCC one.
They (the IPCC) say that the worste case scenarion is that we have a 6.4 degree temperature rise by 2100 which will give us a 59cm sea level rise.
Since making that prediction the temperature rise has been lowered to a worste case of 3.2 degrees. So that would be halving of the sea level rise (less really but..) to less than knee high. Last centuary the sea rose by 18cm. This one may be twice as bad. So expect twice as many cities to disapear below the waves.....
The actual climate has in fact not warmed at all since they made this prediction.
The other predictions are mostly about exteme weather.
Sorry but that's easy to predict. There will always be extreme weather. The increasing accuracy of our data gatering will acomplish the logging of such events without any change in actual weather patterns which will in any case change so producing extremes as always.
Weather and climate always change. There thus will always be new "extremes". Such predictions are useless as they will be true whatever happens.
When the central, much shouted about, prediction of a group falls down they have lost credibility. Flat temperatures for 15 years have done this.
The next problem for thise who wish to panic is that as we see all over the place new inventions such a cheap solar power will be here very shortly, certainly before 2030. As soon as they happen we will nolonger be producing all that CO2. Thus if ther eever was a proble it will vanish very soon.
How risk averse are you? There is no problem really, if ther eever was it will be vanishing soon and the future looks bright.
