    and absolutely, positively nobody else.

    The climatology community reached overwhelming consensus long ago. Nobody else has applicable expertise, and in a rational society inexpert citizens have to go with the expertise.

    A non-climatologist can be a remediation skeptic or an energy policy skeptic etc., because the choices of what to do about expert consensus are the proper business of inexpert citizens.

    But not the expert question. Nobody but the experts has standing on that. Reality is not a democracy or any other kind of popularity contest.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
