Uncertainties about the overall results of feedback mechanisms make it very difficult to predict just how much of the rise in Earth's mean surface temperature is due to manmade emissions. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) the climate sensitivity to doubled atmospheric CO2 levels is probably between 2°C and 4.5°C, with the most probable being 3°C of warming.
In the Norwegian project, however, researchers have arrived at an estimate of 1.9°C as the most likely level of warming.

Republicans and Democrats," he continued, "they pretend they're fighting up there, but they really aren't. They're arguing over power, spin, and who looks good, and who looks bad, but they're all trying to preserve this system where they can spend what they want, take care of their friends, and let the Fed print money when they need it.via megalextoria.com
