Why do Democrats pretend to be scientist?

NY Times:

Why Republicans Keep Telling Everyone They’re Not Scientists


The refrain from Republicans is a stopgap between two politically untenable positions: the denial of climate change and the embrace of policies to address it.
Democrats like to pretend their views are based on science when it comes to the climate, but they resist challenge on the facts or the science and treat the subject more like a religion.  Those who reject their point of view are deemed apostates are heretics rather than seekers of the truth.

My biggest argument with them is their attempts to sell their policy through fear.  The world maybe getting warmer at some point but there are reasonable people who think the consequences of that will not be as dire as Democrats project.

There is also the valid belief of Republicans that the Democrats are just using that fear in order to push for the kind of control freak government they want whether the planet is getting warmer or colder.  Frankly, I would rather be warm than live under the dictatorship of Big Green.

Democrats use the word science as a means of cutting off debate on an issue.  It is a bogus appeal to authority so they want have to justify their policies with reasoned argument.
