In fact, most of the actual scientists in those fields disagree with the AGW mantra emanating from the climate scientists. Most 'climate science' starts by assuming AGW, so that they can calculate the presumed effects.

Scientific objectivity isn't important to them, which means reaching trustworthy conclusions isn't important to them.
