Re: I'm sceptical (of this)
maybe it's time to stop digging ?
I suggest you google up the IPCC Assessment Report 2 "AR2" (circa 1995) and run a word count on "global warming" then compare it to the much smaller number in IPCC AR5
But, you'll like this one, there's some really interesting "scientific" papers that made it into AR4 that had "global warming" in their titles
... AR4 was at the height of the thermogeddon scare (pre-climategate)
