Am I really supposed to believe that someone has "expertise" on physics, biology, chemistry, statistics, geology, hydrology, meteorology etc? Most universities don't even offer "Climatology" degrees. It's just a self-applied misnomer.
Am I really supposed to believe that these individuals are "experts" on something as vast and complex as the global climate system? Then, throw in the multiple incestous layers of non-linearity and feed back filled chaotic systems. And they think they can model it.
If they could demonstrate any competence by way of accurate and meaninful predictions I'm all eyes and ears but I haven't see hide nor hair of any such demonstration.
So, let them show some predictive power in their models and then I will accept their claims of "expertise," until then, they are just glorified weathermen.
