Consult a dentist about your heart condition? Featured

"Do you consult your dentist about your heart condition? In science, as in any area, reputations are based on knowledge and expertise in a field and on published, peer-reviewed work. If you need surgery, you want a highly experienced expert in the field who has done a large number of the proposed operations."



Notes:   This except is the beginning of a letter titled "Check with Climate Scientists about Views on Climate," signed by 38 prominent climate scientists.

The letter debunks a Jan. 27, 2012 op-ed piece from 16 "scientists" repeating the usual denialist myths (the earth isn't warming, etc.).   But only 4 of the 16 have ever published peer-reviewed reports on climate, while 6 have close ties to the fossil fuel industry.    For more about the 16 "scientists" see Media Matters.

Thanks so much for the quick response to the recent Wall Street Journal editorial denying the existence of climate change.
