So then burn, burn, burn as much as you want, it's not your fault.

The solar radiation nonsense cited by a few of them has already debunked, so we can discount that in the first place.

Secondly, can you cite any (even one would be a start) peer reviewed studies produced by any of these 400 scientists which demonstrate that climate change is not caused by increased CO2?

The man-made global warming sceptics seem to think that just because it can't *conclusively* be proved that humans are contributing significantly to global warming, or just because it is possible to find other explanations for the warming, we shouldn't worry too much about it. This seems like flawed logic to me, because I think they're seeing something that is quite complex in a very simplistic way. I think that the evidence for man-made climate change is much stronger than the evidence against it. And even if this was not so, isn't it better to be on the safe side about something like this, something that will affect the future of the entire human race? Humans have never been the smartest of creatures though, so I'm guessing people will continue to live in comfort by burning fossil fuels until it is shown beyond doubt that global-warming is man made. By then, however, it may be too late to stop the destruction that rising temperatures will bring.

This is the question I like to bring up, too. If the global warming people are wrong, what harm has been done in weaning people away from non-renewable, polluting resources? If the global warming people are correct, wasn't it a good idea to listen to them?

Remember these are some of the same folks who'd tell you to go ahead and smoke 2 packs a day because nonsmokers get cancer too.

The oil & gas companies that support the studies and pay for their experiments won't keep paying.

There's the harm.

Apparently as long as you don't read something that contradicts your predetermined ideology.

At that rate, there's really no point to reading at all.

400 scientists compared with how many who support the theory?




Numbers are fun

Yeah, more scientists support the global warming thing, don't they? This is from the Senate minority--Republicans supporting Bush.

Incorrect. The weather in New England has been the best we've had in years. Here's hoping in continues into the next few months.

Not in the slightest. You will never hear me complain about the snow, cold, or darkness. Winter is nature at its best.

I hate winter.

I miss my Mediterranean weather.
