    It appears the AGW cult has created an enemies list. What possible honest purpose could this be used for?

    Right.

    Because people who don't know much about climate change are in such a strong position to challenge the likes of the UK Meterological Office, the British Conservative Party and British Academy of Sciences.

    When in doubt - back idiocy over science.

    I figure there must be a lot of people out there who never need to consult a doctor, because their friend Jack knows all about medicine, and none of that pseudo-science they teach in Med School. Jack learned all you need to know about medicine through his work humping garbage.

    Science is a search for the truth, and the truth, once found, is pretty much self evident, even to semi-intelligent laymen. The science of global warming is too much tied in to politics and the self interest of those doing the science for it to be acceptable to reasonable people.

    However, the main concern that many of you true believers seem to have, is not the science of global warming, but the heretics who refuse to believe. Then, a reasonable person has to ask why are they so upset that people don't believe? What is behind their need for people to believe? We aren't dealing with a religion here, or are we?

    This does sound like a good idea - it's terrible how many people in the usa seem to very easily misled by blogs and self-appointed experts, while ignoring genuine scientific sources. This is very much a US phenomenon, but it is disturbing.

    Maybe it is time to out some of these anti-science voices?

    The only people who are anti-science are the ones seeking to declare scientific debate closed.

    What is truly disturbing is how many people are mislead by government subsidized propaganda. They label every con man they agree with a "scientist" and everyone they disagree with as a "denialist." They even go as far as trying to shut down skeptical sources of information. That isn't science. That's a cult.
