Quite frankly, Julia, I know who I would trust!
Over in the US, there is a similar story.
The leftie/liberal/progressive approach to climate science has been a consistent mixture of radical politics and non-empirical, pseudo-science hysteria.
In order to institutionalize this approach at major government agencies (ie, EPA, NOAA, NASA), Obama chose agency/cabinet heads who would bring the fringe Big Green's politicized science to bear. No better example of this approach is the Obama appointment of a Big Green zealot, the anti-growth Environmental Defense Fund's own Dr. Jane Lubchenco, who is actively putting in place the Orwellian ministry called the "Climate Service Office," where the green's fictional science becomes truth.
