NONE. But they did have consensus that it would change.
Why wasn’t Climate Change ever regarded as the number one issue of prime importance to everyone since we were told climate change was to have been immanent death for the planet, as in SAVE THE PLANET?
Why did we enjoy condemning our kids to their graves with CO2 death warrants and CO2 death threats? This is liberal love?
Was it necessary to threaten my kids with death by CO2 just to get them to turn the lights out more often?
Why were there thousands of more “consensus” scientists than protesters?
Why did CO2 levels rise despite our contributing less with the world economic downturn?
Wouldn’t the plants have shown effects long before the climate would shown effects?
Why did the leftwing hope for the CO2 misery to really have happened and the rightwing discounted it as corrupt exaggerated and politicized science?
Why were scientists not called what they were, fallible and mortal human beings and lab coat consultants?
Didn’t scientists pollute the world in the first place with their chemicals?
Why didn’t the countless thousands of consensus scientists march in the streets if this was certain death we were facing?
Since Climate Change denied ancient climate, did the doomers therefore deny evolution too? Who’s the knuckle dragging neocon now?
Why didn’t the people know that the UN’s scientific warning, predicted the effects of CO2 were to have been anything from “nothing at all” to “unstoppable warming” (death)?
Will history view climate scientists as being to science what witch burners and The Crusades and abusive priests were to religion?
History has already shown that Climate Change was to the Democrats what the Iraq War was to the neocons, lies, and fear and politics.

Pew Research Oct 2010 (http://people-press.org/report/669/) show that:
– Only 34% think that Earth is warming through human activity
– 50% say the issue does not require immediate government action
Maybe he plans to send all these skeptic Americans to re-education camps, like Stalin did, because I don’t know how he is going to force his citizens to accept de-industrialization.

I suggest he stops relying on the patently corrupt political IPCC for scientific data, rescind EPA’s CO2 -is-a-pollutant non-sense and get a regulated scientific inquiry to determine what the science really tells us. This inquiry should do what skeptic volunteers have been doing – making sure all data is public, all manipulation of data is visible and justified, and results based on ‘lost’ data manipulation is expunged from the record.
In the meantime, mone should be redirected to mitigation of warming, cooling and weather events such as Katrina, which we can be certain will occur, whether through natural or man-made causes.
