Re: You would think that there are those who welcome global warming

I guess this is the definition I was thinking of:

-- hide signature --

con·sen·sus(kn-snss)
n.

1. An opinion or position reached by a group as a whole: "Among political women . . . there is a clear consensus about the problems women candidates have traditionally faced" Wendy Kaminer. See Usage Note at redundancy.
2. General agreement or accord: government by consensus.

I know Edwin Newman in his book "A Civil Tongue" thought that any other usage was incorrect. But that was 30 years ago and I guess I haven't caught up with current usage.
