An athlete can get on TV and endorse a product he knows nothing about.

People will believe and buy. Some athletes do this for thirty millions dollars, and the product company still makes a ton of money, because people believe the athlete, whether he knows the product or not.

The same can be said of politicians. Make one popular, and people will believe the words coming from their mouths. It's crazy.

If a politician say cows cause air pollution, or driving pick-ups causes earthquakes, there are those who would believe. LOL.

So what does that teach us then, worf? Not to listen to politicians and athletes when it comes to issues of science. Also it is not wise to listen to pundits in matters of science, nor people that have gut feelings or say they know because they claim to have common sense. Oh yeah, and don't listen to people that comment on message boards of newspapers. So then who should we listen to? Obviously the researchers that study the issue. And they say AGW is real, it's a problem, and the impacts from it are occurring right now, and most likely will get worse in the future.

So yes worf, don't listen to politicians, listen to the people who study the issue.
