Change of plans

After looking through the short paper, it doesn't make much sense as a first paper for us to look at; "Dangerous human-made interference with climate: A GISS modelE study." is a much more obvious first choice. (They run their gold-standard model from 1880 to 2100, with several scenarios for the future, and basically give an overview of everything) So I'll prep that one for the first journal club instead, and try to have it ready by this weekend.

BTW, related news story, and the federal study's decision was in no small part affected by this paper (rumor says): Federal study finds accord on warming. The lead line reads:
A scientific study commissioned by the Bush administration concluded yesterday that the lower atmosphere was indeed growing warmer and that there was "clear evidence of human influences on the climate system." The finding eliminates a significant area of uncertainty in the debate over global warming, one that the administration has long cited as a rationale for proceeding cautiously on what it says would be costly limits on emissions of heat-trapping gases.
