    My main point is i dont see why i should disagree with the vast majority of climatologists who believe in man made global warming.I dont see any big conspiracy.
    Have you been reading the papers in your own country, because Hadley CRU is in your neck of the woods, mate...

    There was obvious manipulation of data and the peer-review process by top climate scientists.

    If you wish to gamble with your own life after I'm gone fine. In the meantime I have real flesh and blood grandchildren that I feel are worth protecting from our short term greed.

    What you and others are suggesting is not a sensible contingency plan, instead, you want to fundamentally alter the nature of our economy and empower governments the world over to further interfere in our lives, all based upon a flimsy correlation and suspect data.
    I submit that our use of Middle East wars as an energy plan rather than learning to use our energy sources and our environment in a sustainable manner fundamentally alters the nature of our economy for the worst. The proof for Global warming is greater than any proof against it. If you are wrong interference in our lives becomes moot. Our economy become moot. And Libertarian ideology becomes moot.

    Sorry, but I'm not buying it, and will continue to speak against it. I think my generation will be the one to finally start fixing all the problems you old people have made for us...
    Help yourself, and the rest of us will continue to take actions to mitigate global warming and our dependence on foreign oil and the Middle East wars to support it to the extent possible.

    We've got plenty here in PA, and we really don't need it all.
    By all means, ship some up there.

    Actually the Emails really proved that there was no conspiracy - some academic argy bargy sure but no conspiracy

    Mann has now been officially cleared of misconduct as well

    In any case, recent weather is more indicative of global warming then against global warming.

    There was obvious manipulation of data and the peer-review process by top climate scientists.

    The Met Office (Hadley Centre) and the CRU at the University of East Anglia are different organisations in different places, though both are in the same country, so you are nearly right. But then nearly isn't enough.

    They were manipulating data and trying to circumvent the peer review process. Not sure if that's the same thing as "argy bargy"...

    The prominent university professor was cleared by his friends and colleagues, so just ignore the fact that his famous graph was total crap...got it.

    So...you're basically saying that every reasonable piece of evidence that goes against your arguement is "total crap." Got it
