There's a very humorous cartoon posted that great blog site: http://motls.blogspot.com/ and click down about 4.5 screens. It show a scientist on the rack being tortured and recanting, screaming, "Okay. I believe mankind causes global warming" The robed Inquisitor says, "Very well ... give the heretic back his research funds."
That's the reality in climate science. If you challenge the deemed authority, you're de-funded even if your data is unquestionable. Few resist.
