    Now this is telling. Several papers and quality control checks show that many of the recent papers on the Great Barrier Reef exaggerated the damage by a factor of ten. Independent scientists did their own research and found the GBR to be over 80% healed from a minor uptick in water temp, which has now fallen below the 30 year average.

    "Marine scientist Peter Ridd has begun a speaking tour in Queensland calling for a new body to check the quality of reef research."

    And the real scientists want to know why there was no peer review on the work done... The days of logical fallacy and trusting the "experts" are over. Now there is a push to check everything that comes from grants, special interests, and government financing.

    This should have been called for long ago...

    Surprise! The Great Barrier Reef is Not Dying from Global Warming

    And this is why appeals to authority are a logical fallacy...

    Trust no one and Verify.... This is how science should operate..

    It may come as a surprise to you...but in every field of science except climate science, that is how it operates...only climate science holds up "consensus" as if that were evidence of anything other than groupthink. Scientists are supposed to be the most skeptical people on the planet, and in most fields they are...except...that is for climate science where there is "consensus".

    And right out of the gate.... APPEALS TO AUTHORITY... and disparagement of those fact checking the work and papers printed by agenda driven hacks... You two morons do not like to have your gods questioned... they must be believed... Its kind of like the METOO movement, they should be checked/prosecuted only if they do not conform to the approved agenda...

    It really changes the optics when one actually understands what a consensus is and what it does/doesn't mean.

    Do you not understand why climate scientists the world over are the authority when it comes to our current understanding of the climate?

    Words have meaning...show me a single piece of observed, measured evidence which supports the AGW hypothesis and you have the most meager beginnings of the sort of evidence that should exist in order to even begin convincing real scientists that there is something to agree on.. At least one paper being published in which the warming we are supposed to be causing has been empirically measured, quantified, and blamed on greenhouse gasses might be helpful as well.

    As neither of those most basic pieces of evidence required to claim any sort of problem exist...exactly what is this fake "consensus" built upon?

    You keep making claims that the evidence simply don't bear out..you have made the claim that climatologists are expanding the boundaries of what we understand about the climate more than once...

    I asked for an example or two...can you provide any or not?
