As for you having no reason to believe otherwise, perhaps you should look into the plentiful allegations of tampering just within the last decade; if that doesn't give you pause, nothing will.

The problem with "science" is it is deemed correct fostering long held beliefs until it's proven wrong. Couple of examples are; flat earth...
Weather stations that once were in a valley might now be on a hill top and vice versa. But the shift could be greater than simple elevation. Stations were moved from one part of a state to another. The number of stations within a given area shifted. All these differences, Hausfather and other experts said, will alter the typical temperatures gathered by government meteorologists.
Gavin Schmidt, director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said the raw data used in the blog post suffered from an equally troubling flaw. The temperatures were not measured at the same time of day.
"Over time, the U.S. network went from recording max/min temperatures at different points of the day, to doing it at midnight," Schmidt said.
In fact, volunteers staffed many of the stations. Before 1940, most followed Weather Service guidelines and recorded the temperature at sundown. Through the second half of the century, there was a gradual shift to recording morning temperatures. This change produced the appearance of a cooling trend when none existed.

It depends on what the issue is. What's the consensus on conservation of momentum and lepton number? Hmm?
Do you know better than particle physicists the strength of the various conservation laws in various circumstances?
It seems that there are other motivators involved a lot of the time in all if this than just the basic truth.
Then again, there was such a thing with tobacco. (One of the important parts of tobacco toxicity is radioactivity no less). Who was right and who was wrong?
