I was going to do a detailed rebuttal of this, but Jo did it all for us, and probably much better too! THX Jo.
Science is not a consensus like politics, billions of research dollars buys a lot of consensus, a large industrial lobby, the gravy train, she even mentions the Oregon Petition – 31,000 scientists dissent.
Climate Change is pounded into the conventional wisdom by thousands of these spurious, fatuous, specious arguments which are never disputed but are ALWAYS WRONG!

Obama, or whoever does his Twitter for him, may have got his tweet from this Washington Post greenie.
Scientists agree on climate change. So why doesn’t everyone else http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/05/18/scientists-agree-on-climate-change-so-why-doesnt-everyone-else/ (to answer the question – it’s because it aint science, it’s leftist politics, and it has proven to be very trivial so far, 67yrs later)
Jo gets support from Popular Technology which has a big archive of over 1000 scientific papers refuting CAGW.

One Hundred Authors Against Einstein
Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it – here –
“Inevitably, Einstein’s fame and the great success of his theories created a backlash. The rising Nazi movement found a convenient target in relativity, branding it “Jewish physics” and sponsoring conferences and book burnings to denounce Einstein and his theories. The Nazis enlisted other physicists, including Nobel laureates Philipp Lenard and Johannes Stark, to denounce Einstein. One Hundred Authors Against Einstein was published in 1931. When asked to comment on this denunciation of relativity by so many scientists, Einstein replied that to defeat relativity one did not need the word of 100 scientists, just one fact.”
Einstein was always ready willing and able to be proved wrong and he engaged in continuous argument and debate.
“Climate Change” will brook no denial and will not argue or debate. It just ignores the latest refutation and goes on to the next spurious little anecdote, which the press lap up again without question.
The Nazis were lucky to be defeated before an atomic bomb was dropped on them.
