    Hmmm. Did I ever mention they were not competitive? Stop inventing things that never happened.

    Can't refute the evidence? Just handwave it all away!

    Follow the conversation better next time, because that's what we were talking about.

    In terms of publication, the top journals (those career making ones) reject about 99% of papers that are submitted to them. Thats not an exaggeration at all. Its really tough to get an article in Nature, PNAS or Science. The ones that do are truly the top papers in science.
    I never suggested there wasn't competition for those dollars. With the amount of money available, how many "new" climate scientists do you think have suddenly appeared? As to publishing, you know equally as well that publishing is not the same as it used to be. Consider the avalanche of websites and other sources now being referenced by organizations at the forefront of the theory. The big guns, like the ones you mentioned are just the icing on the cake for those researchers who can gain access. After all, there is only so much space to print things.

    Improve your reading comprehension because that is what I commented on.

    Right. And there is competition between scientific areas for funding.

    Why does climate science get more funding these days? Because the data suggest it's a real problem!
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Yes, and there lies the rub. The more data, the more funding, the more funding the more scientists, the more scientist, the more data, and so it goes. And then there is the solution, which feeds the funding, and on, and on.

    100 year old cold records were broken this year...and it's the hottest year on record?

    As always after the evidence and science are made clear the only denier recourse left is conspiracy. It must all be a worldwide scam involving thousands of greedy hucksters spanning governments and industry, from NASA to the United Nations. It is not just an indictment of the scientific community and government, but of civilization itself.

    One would think, if it truly is getting hotter, that some people would eventually notice it being hot experientially. I wore a sweater through most of the beginning summer months by necessity.
