    I apologize if this is not the correct place to post this but in one of Climatepath.org's articles on "The Science of Climate Change" they say that "Petroleum geologists and meteorologists were among the biggest doubters, with only 47 and 64 percent respectively believing in human involvement. Many listed in the minority report are meteorologists and petroleum geologists. The survey study concluded that, "The more you know about the field of climate science, the more you're likely to believe in global warming and humankind's contribution to it." The issue with the conclusion is that Meteorology is 1.The branch of science concerned with the processes and phenomena of the atmosphere, esp. as a means of forecasting the weather. With this definition I would assume that in fact meteorologists would know quite a bit about the climate and "humankind's contribution". Why then are they some of the biggest doubters? The conclusion, therefore, is wrong.
