Surfing the zeitgeist, I found another two comments on the IPCC report I blogged about before.
Talking Points Memo emphasizes the missing analysis in the report that could result in yet worse outcomes.
GrrlScientist makes the same point.
So, good news is that there is reputable drumbeat moving the discussion from denial to
some level of realism. But its also clear there is still a requirement that this topic be taken much more seriously.

While we seem to be on the subject of climate lately, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a summary for policy makers of the 2007 report, SPM2feb07.pdf. There seems to be a consistent drumbeat suggesting that this report is toned-down a bit, and probably understates some of the issues. If so, it still offers a wake-up call from a reputable body of scientists. Its another piece of evidence that should cause us to take the subject of climate change seriously.
