    This is basic knowledge, again it is not my job to play teacher for you. Why don't you research what I'm saying and if you think something is wrong take your best shot pal.

    LoL, your ignorance is breath taking. Just because you don't know any of those things doesn't mean nobody else does either.

    I'm not perfect, so lets look at. I'll remove the words in () so we can see it better:

    But Dyson's purpose seems to be to throw out "heretical" ideas that can then spur further debate. As he said: "I know a lot about nuclear weapons and nothing about climate change."

    News Blog: Freeman Dyson and the irresistible urge to be contrary about climate change

    It doesn't seem like a misreading to me. The pronoun should not refer to anything in the (), so it should refer to Dyson. Do you have other information?

    IF is not a word you are prone to use in this discussion.

    It's as accepted as the LAW of Gravity? You need to review your scientific terms.

    Is there anything you don't know?

    I use that because I linked something for that said just that.

    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.

    Ok then, climate change 101, the AR4. Many Wikipedia pages. A few dozen miscellaneous articles on various hot topics, including things skeptics focus on like the lull in warming, various competing possibilities.

    No I didn't read EVERYTHING, my job is not as a climate scientist.

    More importantly, have you read ANYTHING? Ever? A single page of climate related science? Or just right-wing headlines "climate change hoax Al Gore OMG! Progressive thieves!".

    Do not confuse this with the likelihood that gravity is correct. Gravity is a fact because it is easily observed as true by any competent person. Again this doesn't "prove" it 100% We call things true, correct, a fact because of their track record, not because it is impossible to prove them wrong.


    It is certain that AGW has been proven wrong already.

    Like you, he's hoping. You guys just can't see yourselves.

    don't get mad at me for pointing out your ridiculous claim. I would wager that I have read more "relevant" material than you. I took a couple of courses in Environmental chemistry in grad school and a couple of courses in meteorology in undergrad. I have also conducted research in how different climates affect dispersal of chemical warfare agents from aerial explosions.
