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.
virtually?

The climategate emails should have cleared this up. That it hasn't shows we are wasting out time with such "teams."
Well, for me, yes, those were enough. But, despite the general opinion that I am a far right paleo-con, I do allow for new data to affect my opinions. Nothing new here however.

I guess we should not mention conspiracy theories, but what else would one call such collusion exhibited in the climategate email scandal.
This is why it is imperative that other disciplines get involved to bring some much needed objectivity to this topic of global warming otherwise it is just yelling that the sky is falling.

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.)

The other specialists whom I consulted are almost convinced that this neurologist wanted to pad his account with unnecessary tests.
Bottom line is the MONEY.
