Though I do see right-wing propaganda sites spreading the age old "common sense" idea of "the climate is always changing and climate scientists just don't get it", this is the silliest notion that I see crop up over and over and over. Yes of course the climate is always changing, they take that into account of course. It would be like asking an engineer if they have taken load into account while building a bridge.
When will people learn that things are not the way they think they are. You have to carefully study an issue to understand the true nature of it. It would be like if I went up to a construction site and decided I know how things should probably be done just by using common sense. I might get some stuff right but I would end up being very, very wrong about many things, disastrously. Why do people think they understand climate and science just because?
