    I do not see the relevance. Tim Flannery is the climate commissioner. He is a paleontologist. Al Gore is a politician.
    What gives me confidence? - Research.

    I'd love to know the answer to this too.

    Yes I do. And they are on the same sheet as music as me. Not that it matters. It doesn't matter who you know. Nor does it matter what your occupation is. It doesn't change the science.

    Maybe you two should focus on the topic, not the person.

    Well you seem to think you are an expert yourself in the field but don't put stock in any experts or scientists who study this science or work in the field for a living. So it's interesting to know if you have any credentials or actual experience in this field, since you give your opinion very strongly.

    It changes how you interpret the science.

    And the only science that matters is Father's! NASA, JMA, NAOOs' conclusions are all wrong! Only Father's are right.

    You are disagreeing with 95% of scientists in this field. What type have research have you engaged in? Just reading stuff on the Internet? Or are you a scientist? Do you have access to research not available to the public because of your profession? It's extremely relevant, I think. Basically because if you have some knowledge and expertise in this area due to your years of study and professional experience, I'd be inclined to give more credence to what you're saying, despite it being in direct opposition to what the larger scientific community is telling us. This is not to say I'd suddenly believe you, but your arguments would certainly carry more weight. On the other hand, if you are basing your beliefs solely on what you read online (I've seen your links from SMH online and the Daily Mail ) and what information you choose to accept (I've also noticed the cherry picking trend here) then that makes your conclusions, based on your version of "research" about as convincing as that of a card carrying AVN member.

    Was NOAA right when they said they were 95% certain that the no warming trend would not last 15 years?
