What's fun is to find out which scientists (and "scientists") are opposed to a position and then start doing some homework. Who is funding their research? Who is writing them checks? Are they publishing papers hoping to show that there is no climate change while sitting on an advisory board for Exxon, etc?
This is why appeals to authority don't work. First off, even experts can be wrong. Second off, sometimes "experts" can be bought.
Yeah, would be interesting to look at the political and philosophical leanings, as well as financial backing of the alarmists. Careful, achilles, that argument, as you well know, cuts both ways.
