Perhaps the problem is that the global warming debate
has come to be directed by special interests that are more
concerned about the potential impact that a clearly defined
scientific consensus might have on their ability to manage,
manipulate and control the discussion.
PC is really a matter of relative perspective.
In my surroundings a believer in anthropogenic climate change
is held in contempt. No matter, what is lacking and much needed
is the clear articulation of a scientific opinion on the issue.
Scientists can either support their viewpoint under vigorous
peer review or not. Is everyone so sensitive that they tremble
at the thought of having to transparently defend their beliefs?
Scientists have been vilified and demonized on both sides of this issue.
That should not result in a submissive reaction that allows the debate
to be directed by non-science based sources with (perhaps) devious intent.
