[ExI] A Nobel laureate and climate change

I've only met two people in person who have expressed that they
believe in global warming.
One is a mechanical engineer who I've known for along time who I 
wouldn't trust to tell me the correct time of day.  The other is a young
civil engineer who is nice enough guy but when pressed on details
knew nothing about the subject.  I'm sure the fact that I am in the
rural Midwest versus a left leaning part of the country influences
the fact that no one I run into believes in global warming.
Polite company here says its all a fraud.

The problems with American scientists is that they are not enough into

Personally, I have no idea about whether GW exists, is anthropogenic,
etc. But who can really deny that controversy about its alleged
evidence is not admissible in polite company? :-)
