At what point do scientists cease to be scientists and become political tools in a mass propaganda effort to influence Climate talks in Cancun? (http://www.treehugger.com/files/2010/11/700-climate-scientists-fight-back-climate-denying-politicians.php)

Good. It's about time the real scientists take on the deniers. Facts will always trump falsehoods and politicizing (from deniers).

At the very least, they can let people know that there IS A CONSENSUS among the most intelligent people. Our political policy should reflect that.

So long as scientists hold this ridiculous position:


Scientists shouldn't have to prove that their work is valid (that's what peer review is for)

They are going to get tore up from the floor. If you are asserting something... it is your job to prove it.

If you can't prove it, don't bitch with it gets denied.
