A special Select Committee of the New Zealand Parliament set up to review emissions trading has just tabled its report, commencing with Recommendation No 1: "We recommend that the IPCC assessment, its projections, and the findings of the Fourth Assessment Report, which represent a consensus on the scientific evidence, underpin New Zealand’s future international policy negotiations. We note that there are some uncertainties in the science and these are not yet adequately included in the models. However, we do not consider that these uncertainties undermine the main conclusions of the IPCC, or that they should be a reason to delay action by the international community, particularly as recent scientific analysis of actual trends strongly suggests that the worst-case IPCC projections are already being realised.
