And we just may be, as hard as we may try to avoid it.
We humans aren't all shaped by the same cookie cutter, and that's a blessing that has taken us as a species to the top of the food chain.
Knowing that most folks aren't geeks, and may have little understanding of science or math, we're going to attempt to some of the essential physics and such as we go along.
And we confess that we like the paper, subscribe to it, and know a number of folks who work there personally.
They're all good folks, and they have every right to choose what does or doesn't go in their publication.
We also knew that the catch-all activity today known as "Climate Science" was in its infancy, and that atmospheric modeling did not and still does not exist which can predict changes in the weather or climate more than about a day or two in advance.
So the endless stream of dire predictions of what was going to happen years or decades from now if we did not drastically reduce our CO2 production by virtually shutting down the economies of the world appeared to be more the product of radical political and environmental activism rather than science.
The brighter readers, even without a science background, should be able to follow, as well. What follows is a tale gleaned from many sources over what turned out to be an unreasonably long period of time.
We'll be first examining a "worst case" scenario, using very simple math at first, in order to arrive in a ballpark that will tell us if we need to go further and pull out long strings of complicated equations, which we don't want to have to resort to because we're writing for the average layman who is not a rocket scientist.
Thus, we embarked on a personal quest for more information, armed with a strong academic background in postgraduate physics and a good understanding of the advanced mathematics necessary in such a pursuit.
This fundamental knowledge of the core principles of matter and its many exceptionally complex interactions allowed us to research and understand the foundations of many other sciences.
The final signature was from the President of the World Federation of Scientists.
We decided to publish the results of our counter-exploration on the internet - but in a somewhat uniquely different fashion.
We know a great deal about atmospheric physics, (bio) and from the onset, many of the claims were just plain fishy.
