97 Hours of Consensus

The campaign 97 Hours of Consensus is an effort by Skeptical Science to highlight how 97% of scientists agree that climate change is real and that humans have caused it. See them at the interactive website. The 97 hours began Sunday and will end Thursday. During that time, a different scientist is featured each hour, drawn as a cartoon, giving their view on the science of climate change. There will be 97 scientists in all. 

You can be notified of updates by following the campaign on Twitter, or look through the images already posted at imgur in the gallery above.  -via The Daily Dot

I assumed you were implying they were biologists. I was curious about what fields within biology they worked on. For example, I knew of some physicists with crazy physics ideas, but one example was someone who had a background and career in optics, but later went on to have way-out ideas about gravity, or another case of someone (one I didn't meet personally) who's main work was in magnetic resonance imaging, but went off the deep end about astronomy.

Just curious, were they older profs, and how closely were those statements to their main fields of research? I've seen a few physicists with far out ideas, but they usually came up with those ideas after a long and successful career studying something else.

100% scientific consensus is probably will always be impossible. When I was in graduate school, there was a professor who didn't believe that HIV caused AIDS and another who thought that DNA was actually triple-stranded. These were prominent, tenured professors.
