Judgment of the Climate Debate is in - thanks to all the judges
Thanks to cenpuppie for a good debate, and to the judges on that one -- I agree that it was probably a toughie to judge, because of the narrowness of
For the record, as one of the judges noted, I am of the belief that global warming is real, that man's actions have some part to play in it (how much
of a part, I'm willing to debate, lol) and that we're on an unerring course towards a "Climate Cliff", a point of no return (or no "easy"
return) in global climate change, and that nothing the US or EU will (or even can do) is going to change that. That's based on my knowledge of
climate and physics, not as a political position.
Because I was, essentially, arguing against myself, I opted to try and make it a learning opportunity for the readers -- emphasizing the difference
between weather and climate -- so that when presented with something which is obviously weather but being represented as climate, you'd see the
difference and have a point to argue from.
