"Zero confidence in any claims made by the majority" Now there's a cop out if I ever heard one. You are talking about the majority of specifically trained scientists.
So what? If "experts" act like political partisans when faced with other experts who disagree then they have obviously forgot their training. The concept should not be hard to understand: people who have confidence in their opinions do not feel the need to bully or attack colleagues that disagree. People who lack confidence do. We should all be concerned if "experts" lack confidence in their own claims.

And for instance, 800,000 sq. km. of ice missing from the Arctic Ocean is not a claim, it's a fact that can be seen clearly from satellite imagery. Trying to ignore such things is kinda like Nero fiddling while Rome burned.
Sure it is fact. So what? Why should we care? As soon as you try to answer that question you are not providing facts - you are providing *opinions*.  Here is a article that looks at more facts and suggests the concerns about sea ice retreat are over done: https://judithcurry.com/2017/08/16/what-do-we-know-about-arctic-sea-ice-trends/ . Of course that is an opinion too that uses facts to support it.
