    Be aware that peer-reviewed studies are reviewed by people who also agree that climate is changing. This is one reason there is so much fraud or poorly contrived conclusions in science - editors ask for a list of potential reviewers from the author. THe author selects those that will favorably review it. Admittedly, I do the same thing. From the other side - most peer reviewers are not thorough. Sadly, I am also guilty of that when I am busy with work and asked to review something with no pay.
