Uncertainty in Analyzing Climate Change: Policy Implications. [PDF; 3.1 Mb] Report (dtd January 2005) from the United States Congress, Congressional Budget Office. "This Congressional Budget Office (CBO) paper—prepared at the request of the Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works—provides an overview of the sources of uncertainty that limit the understanding of climate change and complicate the assessment of policies to address it. The paper provides examples of the different ways that
analysts have addressed those uncertainties in formulating policy recommendations, illustrates the practical difficulties in doing so, and demonstrates the sensitivity of policy results to variations in assumptions about uncertain elements. Finally, it discusses the implications of uncertainty
for three different types of policy responses: research and development, mitigation of
greenhouse gas emissions, and adaptation to a warmer climate. In keeping with CBO’s mandate to provide objective, nonpartisan analysis, this paper makes no recommendations." (link posted 27 January 2005)

Radiative Forcing of Climate Change: Expanding the Concept and Addressing Uncertainties.  Report (released 16 Dec 2004) from the National Academies' Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate. The report, requested by the CCSP, examines the current state of knowledge regarding the direct and indirect radiative forcing effects of gases, aerosols, land-use, and solar variability on the climate of the Earth's surface and atmosphere. It also identifies research needed to improve our understanding of these effects. (link posted January 2005)
