The dinosaur/footprint evidence occurred in only one place in Texas. Some say it was a hoax. The largest depository of dinosaur remains are in Western Canada. Argentina also has a large graveyard of dinosaur fossil bones. None of these finds has ever yielded a human footprint that can be associated with the time of the living creatures. Whatever caused the find in Texas, it hasn't been seen elsewhere - so I would go with the hoax theory until someone finds the same footprints elsewhere.
On the climate controversy, as I said before, I don't follow it. It's political, quasi scientific, hard to identify credible "evidence". So I'm not commenting on that.

... 2. Creationists often failed to exercise scientific rigor and due caution in their early Paluxy field work and promotions. Subsequently many also mischaracterized or minimized the mainstream work and analyses which prompted creationist reevaluations of the evidence (Schadewald, 1986; Kuban, 1986c). However, most no longer use the Paluxy tracks among their arguments, and major creationist organizations such as ICR and AIG have advised that the Paluxy tracks not be cited as evidence against evolution. Continuing "man track" claims by a few individuals such as Carl Baugh and Don Patton have not stood up to close scrutiny (Kuban, 1989).
A team of scientists from Purdue and Stanford universities has found that the decay of radioactive isotopes fluctuates in synch with the rotation of the sun's core.
The fluctuations appear to be very small but could lead to predictive tools for solar flares and may have an impact on medical radiation treatments.
This adds to evidence of swings in decay rates in response to solar activity and the distance between the Earth and the sun that Purdue researchers Ephraim Fischbach, a professor of physics, and Jere Jenkins, a nuclear engineer, have been gathering for the last four years. The Purdue team previously reported observing a drop in the rate of decay that began a day and half before and peaked during the December 2006 solar flare and an annual fluctuation that appeared to be based on the Earth's orbit of, and changing distance from, the sun, Jenkins said.
Could you please provide an example of "circular logic" in a scientific publication? I haven't seen one lately.
