    Climate Change Researchers: Not all Expertise is Equal - Tech Talk - CBS News

    Climate change skeptics often argue that the science is still open to question and that researchers need to carry out further study. However, a new paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences finds that experts in the field share a "striking agreement" with the conclusions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

    The study finds that the expertise and prominence of climate researchers convinced by the evidence of climate change "vastly overshadows that of the climate change skeptics and contrarians."

    Don't seem to spend much time on the logic of the topic either.

    The ability of CO2 and other GHGs to absorb infra-red radiation is well-documented.

    The concentrations of those gases, including some more potent than CO2 and not found in nature, have been going up since the advent of the Industrial Revolution.

    Therefore, if the trend continues, a period of warming is inevitable.


    Chew on THAT for a while and get back to me.
