Democrats refuse to listen to anyone who isn’t a professional climatologist about climate. This sounds like a sensible approach, until you realize who climatologists are. They are people whose living depends on pushing global warming alarmism.
Consider the Texas State Climatologist who predicted Texas would remain in a drought until 2020. He had no idea what he was talking about, but it made the kind of story which attracts press attention, and brings money in.
Meteorologists have known for over 40 years that climatologists are incompetent hacks. This goes back to the time when climatologists predicted that global cooling was going to kill us all.
Climatology is a political tool of government. It has nothing to do with science.
