The problem I see with this issue is it has yet to really be defined, and until we can do that, taking gross action which can greatly effect human culture seems like an immature decisions.

What needs to be established is how much "warming" is tolerable, what human processes contribute most to it and what can (realistically) be done about it? There are plenty initiatives for increasing human sustainability in terms of industrial processes but no one has taken a shot at looking quantitatively as to what can be done prevent warming from reaching intolerable levels.

I think that is what skepticism encompasses, not arguing about empirical data without any context or meaning by itself, excepting data which was erroneously gathered.
