The "must do something immediately" crowd includes the vast majority of scientists so I wager they are righ
Indeed. We know from history that large groups are never wrong, never biased, never coerced.
Note here - I'm not saying they're wrong, but the list of things that scientists have been wrong about in the past is rather enormous, and that's fine because science is method or process, not a thing and at least in theory, future science can either corroborate or correct past science. At present, scientists can't seem to agree on what a proper human diet is or even whether sex and gender are mutable constructs or immutable biology, but we can surely trust them about climate change because there's definitely no risk to funding or future employment opportunities if you stand against the status quo, there's no vested interests, nobody standing to make enormous amount of money or consolidate enormous amount of power and control should we fully embrace the climate change model of "humans are a pox on the earth".
The greenness of green energy is in some cases a complete fraud (biomass in particular) or hiding the very real non-dollar costs, from conflict minerals to fossil-fuel intensive, unrecyclable carbon fiber to dangerous chemical waste products. The same companies that are embracing climate change with both hands are still trying to sell you a new phone every year, clothing fashion periods that are literally measured in days, a "globally connected supply chain" that has zero resilience and posits that having your energy-intensive, chemical-waste-producing products made in countries with zero health protections, zero workers rights and pitiful wages is in fact a good thing for everyone. Perhaps I'm too cynical but everyone is lying, everyone is grifting, it is always about the money. It doesn't matter what position on any issue you take - someone has found a means to monetize it (or else you wouldn't have heard of it) and the moment money is on the line, truth takes a back seat.
