I suppose I should have said a researcher relying on federal funding. The researchers relying on federal funds say that there are dire consequences. The researchers sponsored by private industry say the opposite. Sounds like the scientists know where their bread is buttered.
I think both sides are full of shit and that their models are essentially worthless in terms of predicting something with this many variables. Like everything else, you can just follow the money. On one side, you've got people trying to collect taxes and sell carbon offset magic beans. On the other side, you've got massive corporations trying to protect their golden goose.
