AGW - a theory not in crisis

To all the climate change denialists - eat it.

The 2009 State of the Climate report released today draws on data for 10 key climate indicators that all point to the same finding: the scientific evidence that our world is warming is unmistakable. More than 300 scientists from 160 research groups in 48 countries contributed to the report, which confirms that the past decade was the warmest on record and that the Earth has been growing warmer over the last 50 years.

Where will the goal posts be shifted to next? Humans aren't the cause, we're coming out of an ice age, or some other distorted amalgamation of pseudoscientific jargon. Whatever your flavour of denialism, the scientific consensus remains remains the same. And until a substantial body of evidence is produced to overturn it, the theory of AGW holds true.
