It's my new response to any thread that contemplates a mass global death event. (or any other totally depressing contemplations)

If you look hard enough you will find a scientist who will have an opposing view to any consensus. In the case of Climate Change and the affect of Human activity on it, there is an overwhelming consensus in the scientific community. It is no longer the scientific community dragging their feet and arguing amongst themselves.It is now the politicians and us as individuals who are unable to reach an accord and take the necessary steps to mitigate the problem of Global Warming.Even scientist can't agree on whether global warming is caused by man or just a natural phonomena and it definitely hasn't been proven as a fact..
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/306/5702/1686.full.pdf&embedded=true published in 2004This analysis shows that scientists publishing in the peer-reviewed literature agree with IPCC, the National Academy of Sciences, and the public statements of their professional societies. Politicians, economists, journalists, and others may have the impression of confusion, disagreement, or discord among climate scientists, but that impression is incorrect.
The scientific consensus might, of course, be wrong. If the history of science teaches anything, it is humility, and no one can be faulted for failing to act on what is not known. But our grandchildren will surely blame us if they find that we understood the reality of anthropogenic climate change and failed to do anything about it.
Last year's record means that eight of the UK's top ten warmest years have occurred since 2002.
The analysis also shows 2014 was the UK's fourth wettest year, with 1,297.1 millimetres of rainfall.
It was the warmest year on record for all nations and regions in the UK apart from Northern Ireland, which had its joint third warmest year behind 2007 and 2006.

Five of the UK's top six wettest years have occurred since 2000, according to the data.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-308525882014 was the warmest year on record, with global temperatures 0.68C (1.24F) above the long-term average, US government scientists have said.
The results mean that 14 of the 15 warmest years on record have occurred since the turn of the century.
The analysis was published on Friday by Nasa and Noaa researchers.
