Such a committee would be very helpful, I agree.
It could also address issues such as publicising who funds scientists
with polical influence
(if its true the vatican sponsors "sceptics" (pun intended), that would
be an outrage
to lots of people, adding a few degrees to the already very hot water
these guys are in
with their base)!!

by the way, the ultraconsevative guys would be those who would insist
that if god would
want to save the planet, HE would do it. The others would
argue that people are the stewarts of the planet and have to act
responsibly, there is lots of
writings of catholic theologians and I am sure also theologians of other
faiths on that...
