Beavis Logic

From comments: There has been no definitive scientific evidence that we have caused global warming. If you do a little research, you will find that there is a cycle that has recurred throughout the history of recorded weather and atmospheric trends during which the earth's atmosphere has been even "warmer" than it is currently and yes, ice has melted. Had this not been the case, we would still be in the ice age, which means we wouldn't be at all.

This isn't what these folks say: "Last week, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and 10 other leading world bodies expressed the consensus view that "there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring" and that "It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities". And just last week, USA Today editorialized that "not only is the science in, it is also overwhelming"."

This is a classic example of the "It's Natural" naysayer fallacy. False. This fallacy stems from the myth of global cooling. The last ten years are the warmest period in Earth's recorded history. 2005 is well on the way to being the warmest ever.

How do we know CO2 is increasing? Perhaps they haven't thought to consult Seth? No loss.

In other areas according to Crichton et al "glaciers in Iceland are advancing" thus the whole GW argement is a leftist plot as depicted in the novel. Yet, according to real sources all but one are decreasing.

These people trolling over from Ropers are incapable of critical thought. All they can do is cite the same lame fallacies over and over like a broken record. My sources refute these assertions from wingerville flat-out. With people like this there is no debate. When Ann Coulter becomes a source of record in the scientific community let me know. Until then get out.

Use my real name you friggin snake. The views are invalid and ad hominem. What you are Roper is a propagandist. I realize you and your minions have a synapse problem. Make no mistake about it, I don't like your kind. Bald face propagandist liars who send people to war and get them killed based on faulty information.

Your sources on warming are equally biased and flawed. Mine are peer reviewed and solid but you aren't a scientist, only a political relativist. That's the worst kind of fool. Contrary views have to have some merit to stand on. You are your crowd won't address the factual flaws you've posted claiming GW is not real. Instead you launch an ad hominem campaign against the messengers and try to discredit my credentials. It isn't mine on the line. It's our sources. Yours lost as have you and meathead.

And they aren't banned. They get the same treatment I got, and I've chosen editorial moderation as a few of them insulted me on sight. That's a bad way to introduce yourself in a new neighborhood. Teach your trolls some manners.
