There is no consensus on climate change

Activist Sidney Heidersdorf wrote in to the Juneau Empire about the Not Evil Just Wrong presentation at Centennial Hall saying that consensus on climate change science is anything but settled.

There is extensive disagreement among climate scientists as to the cause of global warming. Enough so that proponents have had to resort to the claim that there is a scientific "consensus" regarding man-caused global warming. It is curious that one needs to claim consensus on an issue that is supposedly established by objective scientific research. This is politics, not science.

The need to change the descriptive term from "global warming" to "climate change" clearly shows that supporters of man-caused climate change recognize the uncertainty of their claims and the need for a term which covers whatever happens - especially in the face of apparent cooling in the past decade. Also, recent revelations regarding the behavior of high-profile global warming proponents in refusing to show data and threats to destroy such data are particularly damaging. Peer review apparently is out. This, in addition to other claims that have been shown to be false adds to the impression that this is a monumental hoax driven by politics and money. We can be sure that open debate is the last thing the global warming proponents want.
