Liberals have Disputable evidence! If you don't believe in Global Warming You are Un-Patriotic!
Damn, it is cooling so quickly and completely that all the Ice Caps and glaciers are melting.
You people are a hoot.
Ohh yeah? the rules of global warming says the temp must constantly rise or it is global cooliing?
Generally, the rules of logic suggest that one cannot be both cooling and warming simultaneously. Tis double-think.
Given the current loss of faith in climate scientists, Climategate and beyond, a huge dose of skepticism about any claims concerning global warming is advised.
Given the current campaign to de-legitimize science, huge doses of scepticism are in order when considering whether there are any Conservatives with more than a two digit IQ.
The same people that organized the campaign to cast doubt on the fact that tobacco is bad for your health are now hired to cast doubt on the fact that AGW exists. Using the same people, Singer, Sietz, and Lindzen that have long prostituted their credentials.
skepticism is necessary in scientific pursuits so the more the better
Certainly you are adding Phil Jones to your collection? You know the 'organizationally challenged' head of CPU? The one who admits to the fact there hasn't been warming for more than 15 years? The one that has smashed the hockey stick nonsense? That sort of person that has delegitimized science and made fools out of his defenders in the face of growing mountains of evidence that their data was cooked? All coming apart now since Nov., when the emails broke and it became evident that the conductor and stand-ins were controlling the means of publishing.
I'm sorry you were following the foolish man, but really if you cared about science, you wouldn't be unloading on the skeptics, but on those that undermined critical thinking.
Yes, sceptism is neccessary. Both ways.
And how much scepticism have you seen of the claims of the wingnuts that it is the sun? Or cosmic rays? Or anything but GHGs?
The physics of AGW have been established for over a hundred years. That is not in doubt.
Yet you have people claiming that CO2 has no affect at all. Where is the scepticism then?
