I know enough about climatology to know that it is hideously complex and even chaotic, so it is very hard to predict what the consequences of any action will be, or indeed what the consequences of no action would have been.

It is also clear that we as a species are taking some action (in terms of pollution), and on the whole it seems more likely that some action will change the climate than that no action will do so, and the more significant the action, the more it is likely to change the climate.

As for specifics, the system is too complex to tell.
