I wouldn’t call it climate science in discussion of global warming, I would call it climate THEORY because it’s well proven. You don’t have to be a scientist or even climate scientist to understand greenhouse gases play a role in climate (easy and well used example is Venus). It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the Earth is warming because of emissions, just look at past climates and the temperature gradients with lattitude and how we’re getting warmer nights (and global dimming due to particulates; actually amplifies that as particulates block some radiation during the day but hold gases a bit at night — there was a paper showing how after the 9/11 attack daytime temps went up about 1 degree C during the day and dropped slightly at night in the U.S. just because there wasn’t air traffic).

I would say even Art graduates know and accept global warming, its the people (business degrees often) who think the problem is just an attack on the “free” market and put idealogies/idealoques over reality that are the problem.
