[ RadSafe ] since we're talking about climate change

I am a scientist. Just the facts, no hype. But when one digs a bit into the so called "definitive" study spearheaded by the IPCC (I think that's the name of that committee), one finds out that the CHAIRMAN OF THIS SO CALLED SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE HAS HIS PHD IN ECONOMICS!!! The chairman is NOT a scientist, the chairman is a politician.

It's ALL about spreading the wealth, not the science.

In the past and just now, people on this list who don't accept climate change have posted that they don't accept climate change.

I am curious as to what you do believe.

Please avoid explaining that the overwhelming number of scientists are wrong or read this or that this great scientist thinks other scientists are wrong.

. Is Earth warming, and at what rate (in °C/decade)?
. What is the cause? Don't use the word natural, but give particular mechanisms, such as Earth is moving closer to the sun.

When I ask climate skeptics/deniers these questions, it feels like pulling teeth to get answers other than, "you're wrong, you child of Satan." Or the ones about natural or scientists are just wrong or here is my scientist (inject name of novelist or journalist) who disagrees.

I really am curious.
Best wishes,
