    Hypothesis: deminimus increases in the atmospheric trace element CO2 causes instantaneous, cataclysmic and irreversible changes in Earth's atmosphere
    _____
    |___| Fishtank #1: Earths atmosphere

    _____
    |___| Fishtank #2: Earth's atmosphere plus 1/4 spoon of dry ice (CO2)

    Monitor results.

    Well, we can't actually point to a place on Earth, especially one of the threatened Pacific Islands that are underwater but I can give you graphs and charts that show the sea is rising -- on average. Maybe. If you adjust the scale a tiny bit

    This is hardly surprising news to anyone who has actually read about the "concensus" process overseen by the UN; but it's good to see cracks in the greenie facade.

    How Warmers operate:

    1. Find a place where, it's "Warmer"
    2. Say, "Looky! Global Warming!"
    3. Say, the Ice is melting!
    4. The sea is rising!
    5. Show graphs and charts demonstrating 4 and 5.

    So, you see, they point to places where it's warmer, to demonstrate Global Warming but cannot point to places that are actually underwater as a result of this recent "warming", instead they give you a chart.

    Well, Peter's career is close to it's natural end. And a good thing, too. There were a goodly number of Geologists that just could not accept the Theory of Plate Tectonics. Most were like Peter, older gents that were intellectually over the hill.

    As far as the intolerance goes, when people, scientists and policy makers alike, can plainly see a clear and present danger, but we have idiots that want the name of the engineers first grandchild, before they will accept that they are about to be hit by a train, you bet there is intollerance. Intelligent people do not suffer fools gladly.
