That would be valid if we were discussing climate change and say...cancer risks.

But the climate scientists are using the same modeling they used 10 years ago to predict the progression of global temperature and the effects it will have on the earth. So far, that model has not proven to be particularly accurate, yet you're asking the global community to trust it anyway because "this time it will be right."

I haven't heard a climate scientist address what went wrong in their predictions from 10+ years ago, and how they have updated their model to correct for those failures. Care to provide an explanation I might have missed?
