Recently at a meeting that was centered around observing the Earth and Earth sciences, someone noted that "all the money is going into modeling the climate, what about funding for figuring out more about how the Earth's climate system operates?"

This was a very insightful observation, and the danger of that line of thinking is seen here. Be careful how staunchly you claim to have the only possible viable definitive answer. Because when you have that, why would you need to be funded to ask any more questions?
