A survey of climate scientists by Hans von Storch, found that most believe that the discussion of climate change is driven largely by politics, and that climate change presents opportunities for economic growth.
Here are some of the comments from the scientists.
Climate change science has been captured by radicals dependent upon public money, press releases, and those who illegal change, hide, or purposely misinterpred real data. The ‘hockey stick’ is a good example.
Climate science has become too politicized, and the fault lies with the climate scientists themselves who have oversold the case for anthropogenic warming without due consideration of other factors. But maybe, the IPCC mandate and money for research have been the initiating drivers.
High profile scientific journals are heavily biased towards anthropogenic climate change, publishing mediocre papers showing anthropogenic changes and rejecting many high quality papers that attribute changes to natural causes.
