The report had a handful of climatologists, with most of the scientists having no relevant expertise.
It's roughly akin to asking 500 architects why your car won't start, and refusing to listen to the 200 000 mechanics who also answer.
Nonsense. These are scientists who may be more specialized than a mere climatologist, but whose fields are pertinent to this debate. Your analogy is absurd.
Even scientists funded by Exxon-Mobil think that that answer is ridiculous.
The sun spots have a close correlation to climate change, so it is an area that is being explored. Cloud formation is still not clearly understood, and it has the greatest correlation to our weather and climate. We are still very much at the beginning of out understanding. What we do have is history, which shows times of much greater warmth than now, and ice-ages. The warm periods were far warmer than now and seem to have been beneficial for mankind. Certainly, Florida is still here....I think the hype we are believing today will one day be an embarrassment. The earth IS cooler now than ten years ago, and the last two years have been much cooler. Globally. I think before we start to do something that could harm our economy , (and which will be nullified by China, anyway, who will not be dictated to by us and whose carbon emissions will be growing faster than we can cut ours) we can afford to watch for a few more years and see it this cooling trend continues.
