A 'reprieve' from dangerous climatechange?

I debated Mike Hulme last night, as part of the UEA Public Lectures on 'Philosophy and the Environment'. It went well. But my fear is that some people like Mike's work so much, because it appears to offer them a reprieve. Mike's work suggests that it is somehow OK for us to disagree about manmade climate change. But the parameters within which it is OK are limited. If we go on disagreeing much longer, we'll be arguing underwater...

but Rupert, Mike Hulme is an international climate scientist with 25 years experience behind him.

You on the other hand are not a scientist but a politician with a very politicised agenda in respect of 'climate change'
