What steve is saying about this Meetup Group

I was pleasantly surprised by the diversity of opinions about climate change, the author and the entire scientific, peer-review process. Great conversations from both sides but I wish that when members quote web sites or articles or maybe scientific journals, they would have those references available for all of us to read. Megan always does such a great job backing up her opinions with reputable, (least up until this meeting they were), references and web sites which she readily brings up on her Kindle for all to see. This is what responsible science people do. I think we should all respect this approach and come prepared to defend our skepticism with equally realiable sources; and I don't mean Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh. Finally, I do feel that its unfair that when a non-scientist makes a claim, they are celebrated as some one defending the possibility of an alternative view, but when a scientist defends their view in a book, talk show or public forum, they are seen as corrupt.
