    It is frustrating to consider the positions of others when those positions are demonstrably untrue. If we cannot agree on objective reality, we cannot hope to agree on anything. It's enough to depress you sometimes...

    I'm not a big fan of the social sciences. Maybe that's because I'm not ACTUALLY a liberal

    Just for the record, "renowned science editor, Nigel Calder" is a well known climate change denier, i.e., he's mostly renowned for being a crank.

    And yet again, the denyosphere jumps to embarrasingly premature conclusons based upon the slightest whiff of potential doubt. Not that it isn't an interesting paper...

    RealClimate: The CERN/CLOUD results are surprisingly interesting…

    RealClimate should have shut down as soon as ClimateGate hit the news. Michael "Hide the Decline" Mann was one of their principal bloggers. Closing ranks to defend him was unconscionable.

    Ouch. And thus RiverDad exposes the fact that he has little or no understanding of Climate Science.

    There have been like seven investigations into Climategate, all of which turn up no wrongdoing. Regarding climategate, you've been had. There was no grand conspiracy to distort the truth. But hey, if you want to talk about it more, the conspiracy forum is that way

    But, like Al Gore, you understand Climate Science perfectly and remain convinced that the world will overheat through cowfarts and we're all doomed, just as earlier predictions claimed starvation was inevitable, our rivers would burn, cities would crumble, entire continents would collapse, and so on,

    Head for the hills, chant Goreisms to each other, cover yourself with white robes and be sure to protect yourself from the gap the ozone layer left behind.

    Actually our rivers did burn, which was a significant factor in passing the clean water act. Shockingly, water quality has improved markedly since then. Not familiar with those consensus scientific findings that predicted crumbling cities and collapsing continents. Perhaps you have a link?

    Here's a link to the consensus scientific findings that predicted crumbling cities and collapsing continents grant mentions.
