The American Association of Petroleom Geologists doesn't believe in global warming? I'll be damned. I bet General Motors and the coal mining coroprations don't either.
What would a physicist, an astronomer or a geography Ph.D. and a Civil Engineer know about global warming? Economists from The London School are smart....about economics. What about my local biology teacher?
A masters' or Ph.D degree does not make you an authority on climate change. Since there are 7,400 employed meterologists employed in the United States, not to mention Brazil, Australia, Canada and Norway, you listed less than 1% of meterologists. Excuse me if I side with the other 99%.

I agree what would someone with a B.A. in government know about Global Warming?

Al Gore, B.A. Government (no higher degree achieved, no science degree)

or any of these Alarmist Scientists...

Bill Nye, B.S. Mechanical Engineering (Bill Nye the Science Guy)
Gavin Schmidt, Ph.D. Applied Mathematics (RealClimate.org)
James Hansen, Ph.D. Physics (NASA) (Expert from Al Gore's Movie)
Michael Mann, Ph.D. Geology & Geophysics (RealClimate.org)

Let alone these "experts"

Alanis Morissette, High School Diploma
Alicia Keys, College Dropout
Alicia Silverstone, High School Dropout
Art Bell, College Dropout
Ben Affleck, College Dropout
Ben Stiller, College Dropout
Bill Maher, B.A. English (no science degree)

But I bet you did't know that many climatologists have Ph.D.s in Geography.

Hey we learn something new everyday.

As for siding with the "rest of them" please find that imaginary side.

What's funny about the above list of "skeptical scientists" is that the only two actual climatologists mentioned as "skeptics" are retired?........?.... surely they could do better than that. If you don't believe me, choose "find" from the Edit menu and put in "climatologist."

What is funny is next to no one who studies climatology has an actual degree in climatology. You just learned something else new.

You realize the two main scientists who run RealClimate.org:

Gavin Schmidt, Ph.D. Applied Mathematics (RealClimate.org)
Michael Mann, Ph.D. Geology & Geophysics (RealClimate.org)

Neither has a degree in climatology but are consider climate experts by all the alarmists?

How about Al Gore's climate expert:

James Hansen, Ph.D. Physics (NASA) (Expert from Al Gore's Movie)

Your proof is three people?

NASA - Global Warming

"Climatologists (scientists who study climate) have analyzed the global warming that has occurred since the late 1800's. A majority of climatologists have concluded that human activities are responsible for most of the warming."

No my proof is the reality. Check the degree of every major Alarmist Scientist and you will consistently find a degree other than Climatology.

BTW you link also states this:

...number of scientists argue that the increase in greenhouse gases has not made a measurable difference in the temperature. They say that natural processes could have caused global warming. Those processes include increases in the energy emitted (given off) by the sun.
Sorry but the debate is NOT over.

Heh, look at who wrote your article:

Contributors: Michael D. Mastrandrea, B.S., Graduate Fellow, School of Earth Sciences, Geological and Environmental Sciences, Stanford University. Stephen H. Schneider, Ph.D., Professor of Biological Sciences, Stanford University.

Like I said very few Climatologists have a degree in "Climatology".
