    That's faulty logic on your part. Again, only go back to how tobacco companies kept the public from accepting the fact of smoking being harmful. You know that the public can be just as wrong as any individual. And if you remember, I even gave you an article on this to read.

    Well, I'm on the road, so reading lengthy articles for me is difficult. But, I would point out that disagreeing with you is not endemic of any faulty logic, that's just how you rather lazily try to stifle disagreement.

    J, I, it was your logic that was faulty and I explained why. Have you ever noticed that you project what you're doing on to others?

    Moderator's Warning:
    Scientists in cover-up of ‘damaging’ climate view[W:38:145]The topic: Scientists in cover-up of ‘damaging’ climate view

    Not each other, not other publications, that is the topic. Now return to that or be punted from the thread or receive points or possibly both.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Obviously there's a link.

    Just as obviously, scientists who study climate change have a vested interest in continuing their studies and finding supporting evidence - that's where THEIR money comes from.

    I really don't trust any of em completely, especially on such a politicized issue. None appear impartial to me.

    No where near as vested as science working directly for companies. It really doesn't work the way you suggest.

    Not so much, but I am amazed some see it one way, but not the other. as a likelihood, you've chosen the one least likely.
