Heresy - the brands are heating at the forge!

Irons in the Fire: But I thought all REAL scientists believe in Human-Caused Globalar Warmening?

So why is this written by a climatology professor?
Let me stress I am not denying the phenomenon has occurred. The world has warmed since 1680, the nadir of a cool period called the Little Ice Age (LIA) that has generally continued to the present. These climate changes are well within natural variability and explained quite easily by changes in the sun. But there is nothing unusual going on.

And if scientific inquiry is supposed to involve questioning and argument, why does this happen?
What I have experienced in my personal life during the last years makes me understand why most people choose not to speak out; job security and fear of reprisals. Even in University, where free speech and challenge to prevailing wisdoms are supposedly encouraged, academics remain silent.

hmmm, one scientist against 99.9% of the scientific community. Global warming is happening and humans are the cause, time for everyone to accept it.
