    If it was true that climate scientists had a consensus 30 years ago that the world was definitively about to freeze, you'd think there would be at least one peer reviewed scientific paper claiming that - but I have yet to see a single one of them. I wonder why? All anyone seems to be able to produce is a Popular Science and a Newsweek article - these aren't peer reviewed journals and their scientific weight is exactly zero. If there was a consensus on Global Cooling there would be hundreds if not thousands of peer reviewed scientific journal articles about it - but I have yet to see ONE.

    What does Al Gore have to do with the validity of global warming, exactly? He's not a scientist.

    Why do the anti-truth activists like yourself insist on making the truth of global warming a debate amongst politicians and journalists, instead of a debate amongst scientists?

    You mean the scientists that disagree man is to blame or point out there is no compelling evidence man is causing any great increase? The ones people like you character assassinate and attack personally rather then their science or their message? Those Scientists?

    Sure. The half dozen or so scientists who disagree with the overwhelming consensus of thousands of scientists that man is causing global warming are in fact part of the scientific debate. Al Gore is not.

    Now, will someone please reference a peer reviewed scientific article from 30 years ago which talks about global cooling, I've been waiting for this for a long, long time. (not on this thread, I mean, in general)

    Your ignorance is simply amazing. Claiming only a few scientists disagree or have reservations. Blind acceptance of an unproven, unprovable theory is not science.

    attempt to suggest that there is anything close to parity on the debate is equally ridiculous. "Few" is an imprecise term, just like the word "most" is....as in ""most" of the world's scentists agree that humanity is accelerating global warming". Imprecise is not the same as inaccurate.

    Uhhh, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists is the ONLY scientific society which rejects man made global warming, and to my knowledge, while there are a handful of papers which question anthropogenic global warming, there isn't a single peer reviewed paper which outright rejects anthropogenic global warming. Yet there are thousands which support the theory that the present global warming is at least in good part man made.

    The Great Global Warming Swindle has been discredited. Though it does, at first blush, appear to raise some interesting points.

    Yeah right, one article written by a right wing think tank, another by a Geographer who is the Chairman of a 501c3 setup specifically to debunk global warming, and two articles from right wing MAGAZINES



    Right, OK, tell you what, give me some papers from peer reviewed scientific journals to read, and then if I have time, I'll read your right wing commentary links. Try, I dunno, the "Journal of Climate" might be a good start
