    After a decade long 650 million dollar survey scientists have figured out that there are probably 1 million species in the oceans and we know of roughly a quarter of them. Species that were once thoguht rare have been found to be common.


    Global marine life census reports

    This is an example of why any scientist who claims "the science is settled" is not a scientist. They are at best a propagandist...no matter what degree they hold.

    Read a report the other day that said at least a third of the life forms we have declared extinct are in fact health and alive.

    The two things have very little in common. Finding new species does not compare to well-established scientific facts, like the ability of some gases to absorb infra-red radiation. Using this as an example isn't an example of who isn't a good scientist, but the desperation of the deniers who realize their 15 minutes of "Climategate" fame is coming to an end.

    SEE!!! I told you it was all political from the denier side! They've lost the scientific argument, so that's all they've got. Of course, they're not honest enough to admit it, except when accidently revealing their agenda in posts like the above! :cool:

    :lol::lol::lol: Wow, I have to hand it to you konrad your level of fanaticism is rare. I really do hope that when your religion finally fails you go off and put your considerable energy into something positive. Below is a link to a BBC enviro blogger (he's a warmer if you can't figure that one out) and he is afraid the whole system is about to fail. And he has good reason too.

    Oh, I would be happy to talk about any number of scientific subjects with you olfraud. Any time you like. But it would have to be a timed event so that you don't have time to look subjects up on the net. Brain power alone.
