Why skeptical? Indeed.
That, sir, is what *real* science is all about. Applying reason to your problems, being skeptical, and re-evaluating your results as new information comes in. Just because they aren't a cheerleader for your pet cause does not make them "pro" or "anti" -- it just makes them "professional".
I smelled a rat a long time ago with the whole AGW thing -- too much
1) hating of that bad old western civilization.
2) hating of specific "bad" industries.
3) hating of anybody that offers anything resembling doubts, or who doesn't immediately enthusiastically embrace it.
AGW offers up a convenient new set of straw men for people to hate each other and make gobs of cash.
Any REAL scientist welcomes challenges to their theories. However, Al Gore and his ilk have a problem with opposing theories, research, and opinions. "The science is all in". Bullshit. Science has never been and never will be in on anything, or it would not be science. It is "debate", and while "debate" is useful, it never can pass for good science.
So, for now, as a person who embraces the scientific method, I am going to retain my theory that AGW is started and maintained by a bunch of hippies hell-bent on bitching about the weather until we all get priuses, so we can all die of sudden acceleration death, freeing the world for happy unicorns, rainbows, and shit like that. (That, and a few political hacks who stand to make serious money from manipulating public hysteria).
