They learned their scientific science fiction from the teachers. It's a vicious circle of scientific science fiction depending who receive the largest tax dollar.

Still no facts.
What, you can't read graphs? To understand "hard" science, you simply HAVE to be able to read graphs.

That graph shows Arctic Ocean icepack volume simply COLLAPSING at a very, very high rate. There simply isn't any doubt.

If you are unable to do a google search, what exactly are you doing at a computer? There are also a whole bunch of live links on the page to other graphs & explanation. If you don't understand science but want to comment on a science thread, why don't you ask someone to explain it to you?

Perfect, they are so bad that professors and teachers refuse to accept them as a source. That they have a history of false entries.
The fact that so many can input could push it to the truth but it can and has pushed it the other way. If you look at the numbers you would discover that Wikipedia has become static in the number and type of those who contribute. Similar in demographics and even views which is not a receipe for accuracy.
Of course if you don't believe me then ask Wikipedia.

http://www.wikipedia-is-wrong.com/
And?

I didn't say Wiki was perfect, I said the large number of posters tended to push it toward the truth.

It's still way, way, way, way, WAY more reliable than the average denier or tabloid site deniers usually post here. It's also easier to understand than scientific journal articles but DOES have links to them so you can read the original after getting general background from Wiki. It remains a very good place to start.

Agree.

This is a recurrring theme with tina. It's part of her antiscience stance because she has no science or mathematics.

She's promoting a parallel system where antiscience fights science.

And you think topix doesnít know what you publish? Attacks on me won't delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts. Do contact topix to satisfy your accusations of the reprint BS your posting of what I said. You are a dumbASSumption of your---self again

The artic only loses ice because or the plates moving and shifting the ice away probably. And I'm sure the Ice would return. And the animals walking across the ice wear it out anyway.

<quoted text>First I don't have to prove anything to you. You do a fine job proving that it is all scientific science fiction. Second you spoke of riches I agreed with the exception that riches does not necessary include money, cars, boats airplanes and mansions. Itís your issue that you are a small minded person. Your last sentence explains it all. You suffer from what is called the rodent effect. Your back is against the wall so you launch a personal attack. See you don't have a clue what youíre talking about. Now you need to shut your pie hole. See I do respond in kind.
It's a fact that you are a short, bald, albino hunchback with 6 toes on each foot. I can say anything I want as fact. I don't have to prove anything to anyone. So that makes it true.

You came up with the accusation that AGW was a fraud and that the scientists were getting rich off it. The burden of proof is on you to back that up.

But, really, you have answered the question. You failed to produce any evidence for your statement.

And as you say I can say anything I want as fact. Do you think your one of those cut above all? And you really really answered the question you are a mental midget with no burden of proof other than cut and paste scientific science fiction useless babble. Now put on your big boy, girl pants and do show your entire peer reviewed published work.
Just curious are you one of those ambulance chasing lawyers?

Peer reviewed science fiction involved the theory of humans with 6 toes. His peers involved in the experiment, how many of them had 6 toes?
