"If you believe in AGW, regardless of reason or data, you are one of us." 

This is a very clear message of this cult, which encompasses the majority of the self defined elite.
It also encompasses the reinsurance industry, a business that is very careful to have as accurate risk models as possible and does lose money when they are wrong.
I think there is an excellent free market solution to this debate. If you think AGW is overblown, then a lot of beachfront property is being undervalued. Buy! If you think AGW looks plausible, buy northerly properties from the AGW sceptics. And so on. The people making the most money after 50 years wins.
