    He sure did.
    With such extreme climatic events potentially becoming more common due to climate change, scientists are hurrying to coordinate research into the impact, and how quickly the ecosystem is likely to recover.

    Gotta love the double standard.
    My favourite is mixing local with global

    But I have discovered a new phenomena - underpinning the idea of a scientific conspiracy is the core concept that all the climatologists in the world number about 50 and Al Gore has the lot chained to a workbench in his cellar wiring Igor up to the lightning rods.

    When you point out that the Department of labour in the US alone counts over 2 million scientists and engineers it sort of kills the old conspiracy theories

    Actually, can you please show where anyone has "struck gold"? The warmers were the ones tying this to "AGW", i just find it a fascinating weather event. And a sad one.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Doesn't stop these people from perpetuating them though.

    Unfortunately no. About then they either leave the thread or they launch a personal attack

    AGW is politics, not science. Climate ALWAYS CHANGES.

    Tell me, what is the "perfect earth climate"? You can't answer that, I can't, no one can. It doesn't exist, it CAN'T exist. We might pass through an optimal from time to time, maybe 100 years, maybe 1000, hell we might sit there for 1,000,000 years! But it will change. No matter if we're driving cars or swinging in the trees wondering if those caves would be safe.

    All the "answers" to "Global Warming" revolve around the notion that mans MASSIVE pollution of Mother Earth can be reversed to save us, if we just cut back, 10%, 50%, if we just give up that which makes our lives so much better. Oh but those pushing such non-sense don't abide by their own demands. algore anyone? That alone should let you in on the big secret, the mans made MINT off the gig, yet his lifestyle is far more damaging then some small communities! (according to AGW theory atleast).

    It's silly nonsense to believe WE are causing the Earth to "heat up" and even dumber to think WE can save her by lowering our standard of living.

    That's what I got out of this article. Based-on many previous debates, my gut tells me the Mr Vicchio posted this article because he thinks this dispels the Global Warming theory. After reading the article, I feel the opposite. For many years we have been warned of extreme, freaky, and unique weather patterns/activity, and this could very well be one of them. A shame of the Bolivian people... this will hurt them for years to come, I would think.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I'm waiting for the link to be made to Hugo Chavez; it must surely be his fault.

    Gee i guess that's why they call it Global Warming.

    But I can answer that - the optimal climate is the one that brings the monsoon to Asia every year, that allows California to be the breadbasket of the USA, that fills the Murray Darling river system here in Australia to allow us to grow enough to feed not just us but the rest of the world. It is about NOT suffering "droughts and flooding rains" it is about NOT suffering more intense cyclones and tornadoes

    See this is not about city dwellers turning up the air con it is about feeding the world.

    83 million barrels of oil per day.

    That is the current level of consumption for this planet - it has to do something to the atmosphere - not to mention all the other problems it brings. Would be nice to cut that back don't you think?
