"Scientists believe..."

The New York Times reports a collapsed consensus:
Twenty years ago most scientists believed that deforestation was an inexorable result of industrialization and that the earth would soon be virtually denuded of trees.
Well, that's great; all those doomsaying scientists were wrong and the big trees are making a comeback. Yet the same people who so eagerly dismiss the presumably well-researched beliefs of experts just 20 years ago now view it as sacrilege to even try to question today's global warming alarmists.
