    My question is to all of you on whatever side of the isle of the debate, how many of you actually have a science background or are involved in a job relating to environmental sustainability/social effects?

    That is a great question but totally irrelevant.

    I can count myself as one.

    Here is a bit from the EPRI website so you need not google and search.

    EPRI | Environmental Issues > Overview

    The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) is a nonprofit, independent scientific research organization.

    Is it possible I am the only one qualified to discuss these issues?

    Why don't you just cut to the chase and tell us your point instead.

    The point is built into the question, discredit everyone if they are not anointed by a university and making money strictly through our tax money.

    Funny thing is though, there are no "environmental sustainability jobs".

    EPRI has done many papers that state exactly this, if you take time to read through the rhetoric of the EPRI studies.

    I'm a geologist and my business is involved in mitigating the effects of environmental depredation. I do work in Asia and North and South America at the moment. I have had projects in Africa as well but not for several years now.

    He may be right.

    Well, here's what AGW Messiah Phil Jones had to say.

    "BBS - Do you agree that from 1995 to the present there has been no statistically-significant global warming

    Phil Jones: Yes..."
