    Of course, were you to actually read something on global warming from a scientific source, instead of Fox's out in right field "neener-neeners", you might actually have something to contribute to the subject.

    European Geosciences Union
    In 2005, the Divisions of Atmospheric and Climate Sciences of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) issued a position statement in support of the joint science academies’ statement on global response to climate change. The statement refers to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), as "the main representative of the global scientific community", and asserts that the IPCC “represents the state-of-the-art of climate science supported by the major science academies around the world and by the vast majority of science researchers and investigators as documented by the peer-reviewed scientific literature.”[38]

    Additionally, in 2008, the EGU issued a position statement on ocean acidification which states, "Ocean acidification is already occurring today and will continue to intensify, closely tracking atmospheric CO2 increase. Given the potential threat to marine ecosystems and its ensuing impact on human society and economy, especially as it acts in conjunction with anthropogenic global warming, there is an urgent need for immediate action." The statement then advocates for strategies "to limit future release of CO2 to the atmosphere and/or enhance removal of excess CO2 from the atmosphere."[39]

    does not prove that people caused it

    OK, Skull, here is the science.

    Those that are sceptical of the science of global warming have every oppertunity to publish their evidence in peer reviewed scientific journals. Thus far, almost none of the sceptics seem to have solid enough evidence to do so. Not just here in the US, but worldwide. So, if you are foolish enough to claim conspiracy, then it has to be big enough to embrace all the nations in the world.

    NASA, the US National Academy of Sciences, the US EPA, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Adminstration, the American Geophysical Union, every single National Science Academy of every developed nation on earth, the American Geologic Society, the American Meterological Socity, and every single credible and nationally-recognized american scientific body with expertise in climate science say its a near certainty that humans are affecting climate.

    I'll take their word over yours.

    Can you give me a link to a single nationally-recognized American Scientific body that agrees with your statement. Don't give me links to Senator's websites, or to private think tanks. I want a link to a nationally recognized and established scientific society with expertise in climate science.

    Whee, Skull, I thought that you were a bit more knowledgable than to accept nonsense like these sites put out. Many on Inhofe's list were very surprised to find themselves there. And quite irate.
    Deltoid: How many on Inhofe's list are IPCC authors?

    and here are some valid questions

    Extra - WSJ.com

    Alarm rather than genuine scientific curiosity, it appears, is essential to maintaining funding. And only the most senior scientists today can stand up against this alarmist gale, and defy the iron triangle of climate scientists, advocates and policymakers.

    btw Richard Lindzen is an Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT.
