If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus.

I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks.
Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. - - Woodpile Report

Your Say

A consensus can and usually is bought. Most elections are won by promises of free stuff. The AGW scam has a long list of rent seekers with their hands out and literally trillions of dollars on the line. Don't underestimate them they intend to have your money and your job.
