Good Enough for Government Work

Given the consensus about climate change that climatologists insist they have, this comment is pretty funny:

As an engineer, I can say that climatologists are held in very low regard by the scientific community as a whole. They make claims about systems that are clearly too complicated for them to understand, based on data that does not support those claims and then they give a policy prescription fueled by their emotional involvement in the subject. In the scientific hierarchy they are somewhere above phrenologists but below weathermen, who at least ackowledge the limitations of their understanding.

But other than those failings of scientific rigor, they're just fine.

Don't you all feel much better about justifying massive government intervention in our economy and personal lives based on our climatologists' views?
