btw What do you class as good science ?
This is going to be a little off topic but this comment on opinion is interesting. I think a lot of people seem to have this 'opinion' that they
have a right to their 'opinion' on a subject regardless of whether that 'opinion' is based on anything factual. Opinions are usually based on
emotional responses not facts.
Opinion are fine, but if they're not based on anything factual then your opinion is worthless, however much you're attached to it.
So yes it very much matter where you're opinion comes from.
As far as good science, well it's not based on opinions for a start. None of you have the facts, if you did then you wouldn't have an 'opinion'
and you wouldn't be arguing this.
BTW we have known since the industrial revolution that our industrial activities effect our climate. Where do you think smog comes from, and do you
really think it would not have a larger effect over more time? Average temps have risen by a half degree every year since the IR. I think the
'man's not responsible crowd' is just in denial, it's the typical 'it's not my fault' thinking. To ignore and deny our effect on the climate
Just because some might be taking this event and using it to their own advantage does not mean it's not really happening. Yes what they are doing
maybe a scam, but don't be stupid to dismiss the science because some people are taking advantage for their own agenda.
Al Gore did not invent global warming, his just saw a way to take advantage of it. Very rarely are things completely made up, they are just used by
people for their own gains, much like most of us do in daily life to get on.
Global warming also doesn't mean we will have high temps all the time, global warming causes extreme weather, cold and hot. This 'it can't be true
cause it's a scam and it's cold' shows you really don't understand, and you're just seeing it in black and white. I don't think we're
completely to blame but to deny our effect is stupid, we have to have control over what we put into our air, if we completely deny this has an effect
then we'll have no laws preventing polluting our environment.
