Hold on there, AlGore

It seems the "settled science" isn't so settled:
According to a new study on global warming, climate scientists at the University of Rochester, the University of Alabama, and the University of Virginia found that the climate change models based on human influence do not match observed warming. [...]

The report was written by David Douglass at the University of Rochester, John Christy at the University of Alabama, and Benjamin Pearson and S. Fred Singer at the University of Virginia.
As expected, the liberals will have nothing of it. There's economies to be ruined, after all:
But Bracken Hendricks, a senior fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress, told Cybercast News Service, that the study is "radically out of step with the complete scientific consensus."
If there's a "complete scientific concensus," where did these three scientists come from? It really doesn't matter to the left. This issue is not about science or debate. It's about politics. So any doubting Thomases need to either shut up or be ignored:
"It's dangerous to get into a game of dueling science," he added. "We don't want to be gambling with the fate of the planet."
No dueling science is permitted? What if the science changes? It's not science to say that dueling isn't permitted. It's demagogy.

Update: Here's what some other scientists are saying:

“Climate change is a non problem. The right answer to a non problem is to have the courage to do nothing."
Lord Christopher Monckton, UK climate researcher

“We now have quite a lot of evidence that carbon emissions definitely don’t cause global warming. We have the missing [human] signature [in the atmosphere], we have the IPCC models being wrong and we have the lack of a temperature going up the last 5 years."
Dr. David Evans, Australian scientist.

“There is no evidence that carbon dioxide increases are having any affect whatsoever on the climate. All the science of the IPCC is unsound. I have come to this conclusion after a very long time. If you examine every single proposition of the IPCC thoroughly, you find that the science somewhere fails.”
Dr. Vincent Gray, UN IPCC expert reviewer.

“I am an energy engineer and I know something about electricity trading and I know enough about carbon trading and the inaccuracies of carbon trading to know that carbon trading is more about fraud than it is about anything else."
Bryan Leland, International Climate Science Coalition
