10% Doubt On Climate Change 'Consensus'?

From Robert Watson, former chair of the IPCC, writing at Comment Is Free in response to the OFCOM ruling on 'The Great Global Warming Swindle'?

4th paragraph

Attempts to undermine the strong scientific consensus on this issue detract from the urgent challenge that the world is facing – namely, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions sufficiently and rapidly enough to avoid dangerous levels of climate change in the future.

6th paragraph

The bottom line is that there is little doubt (greater than 90% certainty) that human activities are responsible for most of the observed changes in climate change over the past 50 years, and that we need to act urgently to avoid dangerous human-induced climate change in the future.

Is there doubt, or isn't there?
