    There is controversy about how certain the scientific community is of its conclusions about global warming: whether humans are influencing the climate and whether global temperatures will continue to rise rapidly in this century.

    There are two reviews that can be used as a reference for information.

    This thread is locked since it is meant as a reference point. Contact me if you want to make an addition.

    Since these two reviews were published, both have now been given in updated forms. The differences give a useful insight into how climate science is progressing, and the new versions are more up to date.
    • The Physical Science Basis reviews the underlying science of the fourth IPCC assessment report, which is now available at the ipcc site. It is very long, but there is a technical summary and an FAQ which can help as a guide.
    • The second reference above provides a "Review of the Current State-of-the-Controversy". In the light of significant progress on the major issues of controversy identified in that 2003 review, the author published an update in 2007. It is:
