Jillian and old fraud and a whole host of others allways prattle on about how if it's not a climatologist speaking then the scientists opinion doesn't count. So lets do a little comparison of just how good these scientists are shall we. I will only use three disciplines as our guides but if others wish to add theirs please do so. Geologists (after a not so gentle push from an astronomer of all things!) after spending about 20 years of diligent research and expending approximately 120 million dollars finally arrived at the all encompasing theory of plate tectonics. We have been able to show the exact mechanism of how it works, what it does, how the motion of the plates generates earthquakes, how they manufacture volcanoes, how plate subduction basically is the engine that runs the world as we know it. Not too bad an investment. Physicists after the expenditure of 2 billion dollars (equivalent to 23 billion dollars today) over a period of three years August 1942 to August 1945 gave us the atomic bombs that ended WWII and started the nuclear power industry very shortly after that. Climatologists after a period of 30 years and over 100 billion dollars have been able to tell us.........."maybe". Not too much of an accomplishment if you ask me.
