I wouldn't trust a climatologist to do anything other than waste money writing papers about how much humans suck. When you read stories about "elite" climatologists making statements along the lines of universities shouldn't be giving out degrees related to climate studies to anyone who does not already agree that global warming is happening, is bad and is caused by humans, then you have to realize that nobody is actually doing research; they are only trying to find new ways to rewrite the same lies.
The theory behind the greenhouse effect is nearly two hundred years old at this point, having first been articulated in the 1820s by Joseph Fourier. Proof that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas is over 150 years old. That makes the principles behind anthropogenic climate change:
-older than Quantum Mechanics
-older than General and Special Relativity
-older than the theory of the electron
-older than the discovery of the DNA molecule
-older than the theory of evolution
-older, in many ways, than the germ theory of disease.
At this point, considering the enormous weight of theory and proof behind global warming, anyone claiming to be a climatologist who "doesn't believe in global warming" is essentially like an auto mechanic who "doesn't believe in internal combustion", or a doctor who "doesn't believe the brain is necessary for life." If you can't bring yourself to believe in scientific theories that have been proven by millions of people diligently applying the scientific method, then you shouldn't be a scientist. You should be something that does not require the application of the principles of rationality: you can be a priest, or a politician.
Or a radio host.
