    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
    sorry dude, I never said you claimed to have read all the material ever published about global warming. you are the one who made the claim that you had read all the relevant material. I was merely pointing out that, unless you narrowly define "relevant", it is highly unlikely that you have read "cover to cover" all the relevant data. (and FWIW...if you haven't read ALL the data...how do you know if it is relevant or not? )

    so, there is nothing "wrong" with me. You are the one who made an exaggerated claim and then got butthurt when I called you on it.

    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.
    That's why it's a theory, and AGW variables aren't. Only geometry had "proofs."

    So you post a wiki link as proof, which only says "90% certainty."

    Don't you understand the insignificance of 90%, compared to 100% of everything we test with something like gravity?

    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?
    Didn't I read someplace he studied Climate change for 30 years of his life?

    Do you really think the same man who said he studied the climate for 30 years would say that referring to himself? That quote means Reagan. Notice is is when speaking of Reagan as well.

    I'm looking for the link I found yesterday. The quotation marks were different:

    "As he said: I know a lot about nuclear weapons and nothing about climate change."

    I haven't found it yet, but it also sounds more like Reagan.

    I read it wrong, here is what he said about understanding climate:

    I'm heretical because I was in the business of studying climate change at least 30 years ago before it became fashionable.
    He understand climate change.

    Now, one has to ask if the AGW cult is relying so much on computer models, and a strong campaign to discredit, and destroy anyone whom disagrees with their thinking, then what is their real goal here? My opinion is that it has nothing to do with the well being of the world, and much more to do with political, control, and wealth issues. IOW, a huge scam.

    Part two of that youtube interview is devastating to AGW proponents....




    Right at the end he blows the AGW people right out of the water. We can manage Co2 levels by better land management. And in his words less destructive than approaching it through curtailing artificially coal and oil....Ka-freakin'- BOOM!

    I have no idea what you've read, but the link I quoted did not say it was a Reagan quote, and in context of the paragraph, it would be silly for it to have been a Reagan quote.

    But, I'm always open to 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.
