I disagree on both counts. I don't, of course, reject the possibility that climate change is due to non-human factors, but would prefer to see more data compiled and more analysis done before we make dramatic policy changes.
You seem dead-set that this is all some kind of Al Gore fantasy. You might want to pull your head up out of the sand and think about why scientists at NASA and the National Oceanographic and Atmosephere Administration give a damn about such things.
There is no doubt that there is politics in science, or science in politics, but IMHO it's very dangerous and foolish to simply pick one side very early on in an active scientific debate and just discard it as politically motivated.
NASA and NOAA are dependent on the government for funding. With funding comes influence. It's just the nature of the beast.
I agree to not change policy when all the data isn't in. So why have they been doing exactly that?
If you don't see the 4th amendment ramifications, perhaps it's your cabesa in the sand.
