Climatology Establishment Smears Scientific Critics

Responding to a recent Wall Street Journal†op-ed by 16 scientists who reject global warming catastrophism (discussed here), 38 academic climatologists have offered their counterargument, which amounts to 1) disagreeing with the 16 scientistsí factual claims about the climate and 2) claiming that since most of the scientists are not climatologists, their claims are uninformed. Both points are wrong.
