What We Learned About Climate Change Science in 2008

I just ran across a very nice summary of scientific research on climate change in 2008 in Nature. The piece includes both discussion of research that largely confirms earlier findings, or demonstrates previous projections may have been underestimated, e.g. in the context of sea level rise, as well as an excellent summary of abiding areas of uncertainty on issues such as the level at which GHGs must be stabilized to avoid dangerous anthropogenic interference, and the continued mystery of missing carbon sinks. This would be a very good piece for a first day lecture on climate change science.
