Real Climate for the Reality Based Community

via pharyngula: are a group of climatologists blogging to get the word out on the consensus that people studying the climate have reached:

(1) the earth is getting warmer,

(2) human activity is responsible for at least half of this increase,

(3) if we do not change our ways, warming will continue or even accelerate.

I've just begun to comb through it, but this post , which begins to address the role of consensus in the scientific process, is interesting from a philosophy of science perspective.
