How is Joe-Public supposed to be able to tell, whom the "right" scientist is, and whom the "wrong" scientist is ?
We seem to be wondering: why does there appear to be scientists, on both sides of the AGW debate ?
Does this mean, that all scientists are not "right" ?
Folks are arguing, in various threads, that some scientists, are 'better', or more credible, than others.

We certainly do not trust the Republicans representing Big Oil interests with the most at stake to lose!!!

Or do we 'need' a scientist to interpret, and explain the results to us ?
So how, can anyone be sure that their view on Climate-Change, is not truth, but merely their belief ?
Would a supposed 'Truth', not be self-evident ?
So: how does one 'know', that their view on Climate-Change is 'right', and those whom don't agree, are 'wrong' ?
Actually, both terms have been and are still being used.
They used to call it 'global warming' all the time, but when we saw it was colder, or the same as before, they changed it to 'climate change', to cover their lying asses.

There are scientists that are in it for the science and there are scientists and opportunists that are in it for the money. Figure out which are which and you'll know who you can trust.

We can no more stop the climate from changing that stop a hurricane. It's been going on for billions of years.
