The Finger to Roper

This one's for you knucklehead.

Realclimate on Gore's Movie

My request is this: read the links and refute if anyone here can, with facts, not innuendo and misinformation. Even if some advocate hyping the facts, such as Iraq was an imminent, increasing threat for example, that doesn't erase what we know collectively in the scientific community. Media people are prone to hype. That doesn't mean what they're hyping isn't real and a serious threat to human survival nonetheless. You may not think a field biologist like me knows anything, but at the field level the US Government doesn't hire morons. It takes a political appointment to pull that off.

For Christ's sake educate yourself or get out of the mocking bird business. You're amateurs.

Mark, there are serious and qualified scientists in the climate field who appear impartial and do not support the global warming scare groups. But, whenever they speak up, they are protested and demands are made for their firings, such as is occuring now with our hurricane service. When other objective scientists see that, they decide just to be quiet rather than risk their jobs because of a bunch of crazed street activists.

Real Climate appears to do the same thing. I have seen them be highly critical of scientists who want to go slower on this and then praise people who are not qualified but who support their views.

It seems to me that the burden of proof should be solely on the global warming alarmists, who are making claims and scaring people with anecdotal "proof." The claims lack sufficient credibility to me and do not justify the costs that their solutions demand.

That's not the fault of conservatives. The left needs to do more homework before they turn in their assignments.

This is false. Go slower is over. Only unqualified shills are in this camp. It's painful for you to accept, but it's real nonetheless. RC has nopt praised unqualified people. You have.

Editorial cartoonists are not qualified scientists to anyone but the left.

It depends on the opinion they are conveying: if it jives with the scientific reality, not some wingnut's wet dream. You have to know what's wrong to know what's actually funny. You clearly have no idea because don't recognize the reality of the situation. You will be pounding on the ark and no one will save you.
