Very good point. I see this all the time in my field. I suppose it is my duty as a student of science to give more value to the data and conclusions they have reached. However, there is much we do not understand, and climate science is complex. I believe it was only 60 years ago that the experts of the day expected us to enter another ice age soon. Global cooling was the panic back then. That kind of flip flop makes me hesitant to accept what the current theory is now.
