bile while they parrot the statements that are expected of them.
The truth is that Science does not know at this point. Science is to be forgiven for their Intellectual Dishonesty though. Without funding no Science
can take place. Without exaggeration and dishonesty there is no funding. As this battle rages all we can hope is that the truth wins out in the end.
OK, just for beachcoma I'll address this (although, I think the bigger crime is ignoring the actual research I posted earlier which shows what this
palaver is really about, heh).
What are all the major scientific organisation saying? What is the UN saying? What are most climatologists saying?
something like: It is warming and we most likely are, and have been having, a significant impact on climate. We need to reduce our emissions to help
stop this phenomena.
That's it. If we accept this, we can move on, we can reduce funding to this area and fund new technology etc, rather than more studies telling us
what they are already finding anyway.
Your suggestion doesn't hold. If we listen to the scientists then they are essentially saying 'job done for now'. Their funding can be reduced,
they have done the main job.
To keep the $$$ rolling, scientists would be saying 'we don't know, need more studies', that's not what they are saying, no? Or am I missing
