Unfortunately, despite what the IPCC and Al Gore might have liked to insist in the past, science doesn't work by consensus. The good news is that a lot of scientists seem to be getting cold feet on the anthropogenic global warming issue.
Anthropogenic global warming started out as an incorrect interpretation of certain scientific evidence by people whose political preferences led them to desire that such an interpretation be true.
The movement has since been taken over by those who wish to disrupt global capitalism and damage the world economy.
Some scientists are coming to see that in the face of observations that contradict the predictions of their climate models, the global warming gravy train is about to come to an end. If they choose to associate themselves and their careers with what is fast proving to be junk science and the people who are trying to destroy the very economy that supports the funding they depend on, their careers will go the way of eugenics researchers in the 1930s.
I hope this Global Warming gravy train does come to an end, not that I am against other forms of energy — I moved 3 times in the last 10 years and converted each house from oil to natural gas and am looking into solar panels form my house now — anything not to give my money to OPEC.
If BO and the his new gov want to promote clean energy, they should make the cost for solar, natural gas, etc completely tax deductible and offer government loans at 1% interest for companies and homeowners as an incentive to do so.
