C0bzz - Do you have a PHD in Climatology? Have you spent months in the arctic releasing weather balloons and collecting core samples?
If not then all you have proved as that you can read and know how to surf the web.
All of the links you provide is second hand knowledge. I can provide just as many links to web sites, reports, scientific findings etc... But really
there is no point.
The only reason i am saying this is (and i mean no offence here because i realise it is a subject that we are all passionate about) because you come
across as slightly arrogant in your reply’s... almost like AL Gores photo negative.
I believe in manmade GW... but I don’t know it as 100% fact. I openly admit (as I have done in past threads) that i have taken a leap of faith with
regards to what side of the fence I sit on. And if I ignore all the fancy charts, scientific reports and multitude of data that has been collected
(which, if I am honest I don’t completely understand anyway) then all I have left is my gut instinct.
The Anti GW believers have more to lose in the way of short sited material wealth...
It’s like gambling...
If we gamble on the Anti GW people then in the worst case scenario the human race could become extinct.
If we gamble on the environmentalist then the worst case scenario is that they are wrong and we could have higher taxes, less fossil fuel reliance and
a cleaner planet.
I would guess that 95% of the human race does not truly understand the science behind Climatology and GW issues. They just regurgitate what they have
read as if it is their own discovery’s and work. It probably one of the down sides to the internet... suddenly everyone is a self appointed expert
because of “what they read” somewhere!
This applies to everyone... just something to think about before we bash the next person over the head with second hand knowledge
