Interesting concept this consensus thing.
There are a couple of things that we can all reach consensus on:
The Global Warming, Climate Change, Climate Extremes, models are extremely wrong. Predictions about rising temperatures, increased hurricanes and rising sea levels are just not true.
The proponents of Global Warming, Climate Change, Climate Extremes are consistent in their refusal to share data, their willingness to compromise statistical methodologies to hide the truth and their ability to create significant personal wealth from riding the Trojan Horse.
There is no doubt the climate has warmed, especially when you use the last mini ice age as your beginning data point. The contribution of human activity is very, very, very small. One burp from a volcano clears the slate.
It is interesting that democrats did nothing to implement cap and trade or similar legistation when they controlled the entire US government during President Obama's first 2 years. Some might say it is immoral to not deal with the greatest peril facing the World's future, actually I think it was said a couple hundred times in commencement addresses these last couple of weeks.
Others think it's a great topic for political fund raising.
Hum, that just might be a motivation for consensus.
