    But hey, don't let that stop you!

    No, there's no difference.

    When those Scientific Societies begin embracing bunkum, they have no standards.

    Let's see your proof where they embrace it?

    You yourself say they have a magical consensus on the bunkum called Anthropogenic Global Warming, a theory that's made no successful predictions and which has failed all tests made on it.

    You see, science is nothing but a method for reducing bunkum until the truth is found. It's not a matter of "consensus", it's not a matter of how many internationally funded committees and councils go along with a particular theory. Science is a matter of rejecting that which does not fit.

    AGW does not fit the observed facts. The hysteria of it's blind followers has no rationale behind it, it's just raw emotion. The cupidity of it's promoters is obvious and does not add to AGW's attractiveness as a description of the physical world. The KNOWN frauds associated with AGW, perpetrated by some of those very same Scientific Societies, further hammers home the conclusion that AGW is bunkum.

    Once again no proof to back up your claims. Nice bold font though!

    The poll should be defined better as the goal posts change from time to time.

    Controversial new climate change results -Universisty of BristolPress release issued 9 November 2009

    "New data show that the balance between the airborne and the absorbed fraction of carbon dioxide has stayed approximately constant since 1850, despite emissions of carbon dioxide having risen from about 2 billion tons a year in 1850 to 35 billion tons a year now.

    "The strength of the new study, published online in Geophysical Research Letters, is that it rests solely on measurements and statistical data, including historical records extracted from Antarctic ice, and does not rely on computations with complex climate models. "

    emissions from deforestation might have been overestimated by between 18 and 75 per cent. This would agree with results published last week in Nature Geoscience by a team led by Guido van der Werf from VU University Amsterdam. They re-visited deforestation data and concluded that emissions have been overestimated by at least a factor of two.
    "


    The "science" is definitely not "settled"


    There is a lot of investigation to do and the monetary concerns pushing global warming media and industry should be monitored closely.
    Thank you

    The proof for my claims is in the world around you. You've already decided that this last decade, measurably cooler than the preceding one, is by your definition "warmer", so it's not like there's any point in my wasting time providing even more evidence.

    And if you're going to capitalize the phrase "scientific societies" don't bitch when people make fun of them.

    I don't generally waste time trying to refute someone's religion, I merely show them their logical errors and wait to see if they have the maturity and ability to admit the falsities of their positions. You've chosen to have a religious faith in con men. My only objection to your practice of your new religion is your insistence that your religion be treated as fact and that this religion's prescriptions for life be codified in the laws of the nation I live in.

    Explain why you value the destruction of the economy of the United States so highly.

    Without a habitable environment, there can be no economy, good bad or otherwise.

    That makes no sense. People currently habitate all over the world. Where exactly are you that you must walk around carrying an oxygen tank?

    California? Houston? Those are the smoggiest areas in the US and I have lived both places. I do not recall it ever being that bad.
    Thank you
