Some people apparently think weather and climate are the same thing. A fifth grader knows better.
Another poster thinks that scientists work in isolation such that all of the vast expertise needed to predict climate must be embodied in a single individual. Apparently the concept of collaborating and working in teams is unknown to this person. And then someone agrees with him, which makes me think that teamwork is unknown to this person as well.
When did conservatism become synonymous with taking delight in willful ignorance?
Some people think that all scientists collaborate among all disciplines to develop an all encompassing explanation for why the sky is blue and the wind blows. These same people think that those explanations have been roundly debated in peer reviewed journals and hypotheses revised and reformed as a result.
Those people would be wrong. They are called cdcox.
