Are most climate scientists alarmists?

The elk bit was also sarcasm, but as you are incapable of distinguishing climate prediction from weather forecasting, maths from experiments and who knows what more, I'm giving you some visual help. 

Let me help...

We seem to do this every time...

The OP is about climate scientists and the use of the word 'alarmist'.
But because a lot of people are extremely passionate  ( some may even be 'virtue signaling' ) about the subject, all it takes is one person to question AGW, and all of a sudden, it becomes a thread about whether AGW is factual.
It then becomes the same 'It's duck season. No, it's rabbit season" back and forth argument that we've had dozens of times before.
Some people's minds cannot be changed, no matter how much evidence is presented to the contrary.
And the thread is way off topic.

And then Dimreepr posts his vacation photo...  :lol: :lol: .

Yeah, I was in Canada and yes, I was stalking you...

I watched a BBC documentory this morning, in which they described how humans caused the extinction of mastodons'; by only hunting the solitary dominant male's, which slowly, over a few centuries, destroyed there ability to mate successfully.

Our opinions about the how or why, doesn't change what's going to happen; I really don't care if people want to ignore our probable/possible future or be alarmed (I can't change it, mostly because of my vacation photo), I just like a discussion. And if it's off topic, laugh at the OP.

You're right. I'm partly responsible for derailing the wagon with the elk talk. :-) Plus I'm a bleeding heart for Nature conservation.

In my defense, the OP actually took my sarcasm dead-seriously.

Although you must admit that in order to assess whether scientists are being "alarmists" it seems inevitable to discuss the alarm signs however briefly.

Elks aside...

I always thought that mastodon were too large to be taken down individually; especially large dominant males.
The depictions I've always seen involve scaring the herd, and stampeding them off cliffs, so they can be killed when injured from the fall.

And now we're really off topic.
( are you trying to get me in trouble with the Mods ? I was only joking about the vacation photo ... )

The evidence was quite compelling.

I know, but that would be funny... 😄 😄

Moderator Note

And this is why we have the rule about good faith arguments.

Despite several pages of reasoned arguments, the OP continues to soapbox about AGW's existence and disparage all scientists, and it's clear this was the agenda all along since they've taken NONE of the arguments under consideration. Discussion has to be a two-way street here to have any meaning. Not a blog, a science discussion forum.
