Excellent reference. And yes, the science is concerned with the fact of AGW, not the political or economic consequences. Ergo they have no stake in denial of the evidence.

"Increased levels of CO2 have marked periods of warmer climates over geologic time. Indeed, a 2009 article in Science by Aradhna Tripati et al. determined that the last time the Earth had CO2 concentrations similar to today (~380 ppm, 14-16 million years ago), global temperatures were on average 5-10 F (3-6 C) warmer and global sea level was 25-40 m higher than today. Thus, the author's claim that "The fact that carbon dioxide levels are correlated with rising temperatures must therefore be coincidence," greatly underestimates scientifically supported physical relationships."
