E for me.

A is wrong because of "will it".

B is wordy with that occurs. And "the impact it would have" is not clear.

C D: impact is unclear.

A seems OK to me. How is "will it" wrong?

A. on whether significant warming will occur and what impact will it have if it does. it will have if it does awkward wordy
B. on whether warming that occurs will be significant and the impact it would have. Wordy for me
C. as to whether significant warming will occur or the impact it would have if it did. wordy awkward
D. over whether there will be significant warming [color=red]or the impact it will have
I think devided over .. x and y is correct usage rather than devided over x or y[/color]
E. over whether [/color]significant warming will occur and what impact it would have.
devided over ... x and y..

One more for E. I have never seen "will it" used in proper written English ....if anything it should be "it will".

The scientific community remains divided on two things. so you need 'and', not 'or'. So no C.

Between A and E, E is better because:
1. use of 'will it' is wrong in A. It should be 'it will'
2. divided - over is better than divided - on
