Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My irk with climate modelling is that the experts put the kind of faith in their work that is almost holier than thou. From a narrative point of view I can understand, from a scientific point of view I find it stinking to heaven and also somewhat irresponsible, for the reasons you stated at the end.

Although I'll PN you on:

completely unexplored terrain in terms of atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases

The geologic record indicates very little doubt that higher atmospheric CO2 concentrations (very much higher than those today) are correlated with a more warm planet. The planet will warm; the question that remains is: how much?
