    Did you really think relevant meant EVERYTHING ever published on climate change?

    If somebody told you that they were going to rebuild their carburetor in their vehicle, and they had read the "relevant" material to do so. Would you assume they were claiming that they had read every published document on carburetors EVER? Of course you wouldn't you psycho. The **** is wrong with you? lol



    Oscar was not the guy that characterized it as "all the relevant material".
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    one reason why you should not use terms like "all", "always", "never", "everybody", etc on forums such as this. it only takes a single counter-example to make you appear foolish.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

The lack of trend in the cosmic ray intensity over the last 50 years provides another strong argument agains the hypothesis of a major contribution of cosmic rays to ongoing climate change.

    The draft document also notes in its summary for policymakers, "No robust association between changes in cosmic rays and cloudiness has been identified."

    In other words, once one reads the draft report's language in its full context, there is no "game-changing admission of enhanced solar forcing." The report does not reflect reduced confidence in AGW.
    Reminds me of how Cheney would do an interview with like the NYT and make an asinine statement in there which they'd quote, then in a speech later on would declare that said statement must be true because it was reported in the NYT.

    They do.

    You're just too dense to bother to understand statistics like confidence intervals and p values. You know...basic science.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I don't speak for any one but me. But I know what I've read from scientist. Your description would not apply to them. But your politics seems to prevent you from merely accepting the science as the best evidence.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Says the novice. That's convincing.

    The question is how much.

    If the rise of the temperature is 0.7 degrees in 2000 years, and it is, and the contribution to that increase by man is negligible, and it is, then why the fuss?

    Did you know that the increase in temperature from the year 0 to the year 100o is greater than the increase fro the year 1000 to the year 2000?
    No one believes its equal to you urinating in the ocean. Again, all you throw is not unknown. And still, those who know, say different. So, you, being novice, not educated in the field, blinded by politics, think you should be listened to over those who know. That would be equal to trusting my kidney transplant to a 17 year old short order cook with no medical knowledge.

    My God man...

    A model will be repeatable. Same input, same output. It's just a series of math equations.

    Models do not count. Period. No if, ands, or buts.
