Somehow, to me, a "team" from Stanford hardly qualifies as a majority consensus, even among liberal leftist "climatologists". The great thing about these doomsday predictions...one can just wait and see..while engaging in useless Internet banter about a "science" so politicized now as to be virtually useless.
These "university teams" are useless especially when said teams omit astrophysicists and other scientists. Thus they lack interdisciplinary diversity.
This is also the problem with "peer reviewed" scientific publications. Peers can be prejudiced to their own discipline.
Having a specialty is good, but it can result in arrogance and a parochial outlook.
For example, when I saw a neurologist, he made an outlandish remark that carpel tunnel syndrome can cause double vision.
Thus he recommended an EMG test to rule out carpel tunnel syndrome when I had absolutely no symptoms.
My ophthalmologist was nonplussed. My husband's plastic surgeon who specialized in hands and carpel tunnel syndrome was shocked.
The neuro-otologist I consulted was aghast and recommended me to a neuro-ophthalmologist.
Ergo, it's all about MONEY and right now the big bucks lay in hysteria - medical or environmental.
(Still trying to connect CTS and double vision... oiy.)
