    What are you saying? That we can't trust anyone about anything because everyone works for money one way or another???

    You can't in one breathe say that you can't trust X because they are paid shills, then attempt to deflect when someone says the same about your sources. Either acknowledge that yes, people can be paid shills, regardless if they agree with you, or come up with with a better rebuttal than "nuh-uh, only you do that!".

    That being said, why should we trust someone that says "AGW is real, and if you give me more money, I will keep researching it"?

    This is why conservatives aren't scientists and do not possess the right mind for this kind of work. You're not able to differentiate between junk science and real science. You cannot differentiate between an oil company funding a "study" to promote views that are favorable to the individual company with centuries of scientific work brought together from nations across the globe by scientists of all different walks of life with a passion for discovery and knowledge.

    You chalk all this up to the simple formula that funding poisons the scientific process from start to finish in every situation so we can't trust anything they do. If you knew anything about real science you would realize how petty and ridiculous this is.

    Well, if you dont like that one, there is another done a couple years ago showing virtually all climate papers that discussed climate change agreed it was humans causing it, and virtually no papers argued that climate change was not caused by increasing CO2. Or how about another study a few years before that showed the same thing?

    Or maybe you could look at all the organizations that have confirmed CAGW is a real issue and a signficant problem (AAAS, the Royal Society, etc) and how NO MAJOR SCIENTIFIC ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD says they think global warming is NOT caused by humans?

    Is that enough for you?

    Show me the REAL SCIENCE behind this junk. Show me links of REAL EXPERIMENTS, peer reviewed, repeatable experiments that are documented. Show me something other than anonymous right-wing bull**** that is nothing more than characters in a HTML document sitting on a disinformation server. This **** has no backing, it has nothing, because it is nothing.

    Do you know the difference between just talk, just words, just bull**** and real science? Show me these right-wing universities where they document all this crap they spew and show how it works?

    Those ten years also continued an extended period of accelerating global warming, with more national temperature records reported broken than in any previous decade. Sea levels rose about twice as fast as the trend in the last century.

    Unprecedented climate extremes marked last decade, says UN | Environment | guardian.co.uk

    Further evidence, if any more were needed, that climate change is a reality. Sure, the climate change deniers, like all conspiracy theorists, will deny any evidence put before them. Hopefully this new evidence will make some people to see the reality.
    Good, just in time to offset the higher heating costs. cool.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    What is this about high school hazing? LoL.... this is the mentality of you people. Your former glory of strutting around high school thinking you're special? They wouldn't dare anyway, some of intelligent types are far more dangerous than your typical stereotyped skinny weakling with broken glasses.
    Yep, that pretty much clinches it. Now move along, Mortimer.

    This is comical. People who state things that agree with you have a "passion for discovery and knowledge", and those that don't are "junk scientists". Classy.

    Both of your arguments have been reduced to one-liner "yup that's what I thought I'm right". You're not scientists, stop pretending you know what you're talking about and just walk away. Leave the real work to the big kids and just do what we say, you're just getting in the way of our progress with your support of corporations that value their profits over the well being of our environment for future generations.

    Why should anyone care about future generations? You aren't religious, are you?
