    This is mainly directed at old fraud as he loves to point out that the whole world supposedly supports AGW theory. Well here are a whole bunch who don't....

    Some of the stated 'core principles' of this group of people. Look at the first one. They do not state that this is what they see the evidence for, they state that this is what is, no other answers accepted. Now that is not science at all.

    Walleyes, this is just another bunch of paid denialists more than likely subsidized by the energy companies.


    Core Principles

    Core Principles
    Global climate is always changing in accordance with natural causes and recent changes are not unusual.

    Science is rapidly evolving away from the view that humanity's emissions of carbon dioxide and other 'greenhouse gases' are a cause of dangerous climate change.

    Climate models used by the IPCC* fail to reproduce known past climates without manipulation and therefore lack the scientific integrity needed for use in climate prediction and related policy decision-making.

    So these people do no research at all, simply deny reality, and try to spread that denial.

    International Climate Science Coalition - SourceWatch

    It has been found[2] that the web sites of the International Climate Science Coalition, the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition, and the Australian Climate Science Coalition are all hosted at the same IP address, by a single Internet service provider in Arizona.

    The ICSC site highlights news on climate skeptics from all over the world. It also propagates skeptics' conspiracy theories on climate change.[3][4]


    Activities

    Speech at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change
    At the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change, ICSC Executive Director Tom Harris gave a speech in which he discussed what he called "information sharing" and "coordinated local activism":[5][6]

    [...] We need regular high-impact media coverage of the findings of leading scientists — not just one or two publications, but we need to have hundreds all over the world. We need to have a high degree of information sharing and cooperation between groups, so that when Vincent Gray for example has an article published in New Zealand, we can take the same piece and we can (say) submit it to newspapers all over North America and Europe.

    OR: How are you making out on that one sentence AGW hypothesis?

    a mathematician, a physicist and an engineer were the first three.

    i think if i were interested in the subject, i wouldn't really be interested in the opinions of anyone who isn't a climatologist.

    kind of like i wouldn't ask a dentist about a torn rotator cuff.

    i do have to wonder why it matters to you so intensely to pretend humans have no effect on their environment.

    GHGs absorb outgoing infrared, heating the atmosphere.

    So why don't you test your "60PPM increases cause measurable warming" in a laboratory setting?

    Your hypothesis could have been "Monkeys like bananas" and you would come to the same lowbrow unscientific place
