    The next guy on that list is a meteorologist. Is he ok with you?

    "Lennart Bengtsson (born 5 July 1935) is a Swedish meteorologist. His research interests include climate sensitivity, extreme events, climate variability and climate predictability. [1]
    He was head of research at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts from 1975 to 1981 and then director until 1990; then director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg. He became a recipient of the Milutin Milankovic Medal in 1996.[2] He is now a senior research fellow at the Environmental Systems Science Centre in the University of Reading.

    In 2005 he was awarded the René Descartes Prize for Collaborative Research[3] together with Prof. Ola M. Johannessen and Dr. Leonid Bobylev from the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre in Norway and Russia for the Climate and Environmental Change in the Arctic project. In 2006 he was awarded the 51st International Meteorological Organization Prize of the World Meteorological Organization for pioneering research in numerical weather prediction.[4] In 2009 he was made an honorary fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society in recognition of his contribution to meteorology."

    Yes, his background seems much more relevant. I still want to know why you thought a botanist's opinions were relevant?

    Well, .let's see. How about this?

    What can plants reveal about global climate change?

    While the media continues to present climate change as a controversial issue, many scientists are working hard to gather data, collaborate across disciplines, and use experimental and modeling techniques to track how organisms and ecosystems are responding to the current changes in our Earth's global environment. What role do plants play in helping to regulate climate change and how will they fare in future times?

    That doesn't really help at all. The first botanist was listed under "They may not conclude specifically that the current IPCC projections are either too high or too low, but that the projections are likely to be inaccurate due to inadequacies of current global climate modeling."

    What can plants tell us about the inadequacies of current global climate modelling?

    Craig, Keith, & Sherwood Idso, paid by Peabody Coal & Western Fuels Ass.(abbreviation tells more than the full spelling). Other than paid AGW deniers, they're mixed in some other shenanigans, too.
    Willy Soon paid $1 million, beginning with grant funding by various oil concerns.
    Robert Balling co-published The Satanic Gases: Clearing the Air about Global Warming with fellow climate change skeptic Patrick J. Michaels. The book was published by the Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank that has collectively received over $13 Million from Koch foundations and and $125,2000 from ExxonMobil.
    Indur Goklany has received $1,000 per month from the Heartland Institute, an organization at the forefront of climate change denial.....
    Fred Singer founded the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP) in 1990. While engaged in activities denying the existence of man-made global warming, SEPP has received funding from......Shell, Uniroyal and ARCO as well as $20,000 from ExxonMobil since 1998.
    This is old stuff & your lists of fake "sigh-ants" researchers is fodder for pressy-dent "don'T rump", who destroys proper science with each exhaled breath he takes.

    We each don't get to decide for ourselves - well, you CAN - but our OPINION of the data is meaningless.

    Watch the video, please. The vast majority of scientists agree that we humans are changing the climate. We are as sure of this, as we are that smoking causes cancer. Does your opinion of that change the science?

    Many of the paid AGW denier "sigh-ants" believers, began their "doubting ways" by being paid by cigarette companies to pitch "no cigarette/cancer" connections.
