explain to me wy this makes you folks mad. Seems like this is more of a political issue whereby right-wing thinkers are against anything proposed by
those not of their ideology.
... That being said, there are literally hundreds of other studies over 30 plus years that show that climate change is indeed happening.
I'm going to try to enlighten you without being patronizing because that is our job as fellow ATSers. My goal is not to "win" the argument.
For starters your argument is part of the problem. Science is supposed to be independant of "idealogy." Let the numbers speak for themselves. The
temp at noon on the south lawn of the white house on june 17 1961 in washington dc should be no different were it measured by a republican or
The reason I am so mad is THE NUMBERS ARE DIFFERENT DEPENDING ON WHO MEASURED THEM. The "scientists" at the CRU are fabricating numbers through the
application of calibration and other adjusting factors. They say, for instance, the white house thermometer used in 1961 was replaced with another in
1972. The new thermometer must be calibrated up for no other reason than something as irrational as " there were more airconditioners in use in 1972
than 1961. Therefore it should be reading 1.5 degrees warmer and the new thermometer was obviously miscalibrated."
Science is for sale now more than ever. Corporations such GE steer congressionally funded grants to universities with implicit expectations of a quid
pro quo. If you find the proper data, there will be more money.
That's nothing new its just happening on a larger scale. What is truly frightening is the suppression of valid data and the destruction of careers
that is systematically occuring.
4,000 scientists signed the Heildelberg Appeal which included 72 NOBELAUREATES! They stated there is no compelling reason to cut CO2 emissions.
The Oregon Petition has 17,000 signatures verified by Frederick Seitz, former pres of Nat. Academy of Sciences.
We all want a cleaner planet. But Taxing CO2 is like taxing the air we breathe. Everybody uses it. A very few people stand to make TRILLIONS of
Gore has been working with goldman sachs to devise the exchange and means of brokering carbon credits. Don't you see? Goldman is spreading money to
politicians all over the world. They are paying off scientists. This could be the biggest most profitable investment ever. And they sure need it after
getting caught with too many of the worthless derivatives they peddled.
Anthropogenic global warming is a racket. Not only is it impossible to blame it on so called greenhouse gasses (try insulating your house with gas),
the planet has not heated up over the last decade.
