And you based that it is more accurate on something other than what you want to be true. The simple truth about Wikipedia is it has limited authorship because of it's history. The same lonely, aganda driven white men like Connonelly have turned what was suppose to be a shining source of knowledge into a sludgepool of fiction in certain areas. While it has shown that it can be a starting point it has a long way to go before it can ever be considered creditable on this particular subject.
What you are seeing is your desire for what is posted there to be right. To back what you really want to believe instead of what is true. You claim that it is more accurate than the "average denier or tabloid site deniers post" and yet I doubt you could point to any alarmist site and refer to them with the same line. That is because your bias is such that anything that disagrees with what you want to be true is deemed wrong and that which agrees is deemed right.
The fiction is what deniers say. If you want to know what's true, look at the real science. Papers predicting warming between 1991 & 2012 outnumber those that predict cooling by APPROX ~600 to 1. Yet somehow YOU are smarter than thousands of climatologists who make the study of climate their life's work.

OK. Whatever.

The denier sites, people & organizations include Watts, c3, Breitbart, Chri$topher Monckton, Spencer, Christy, the Heartland Institute & the Telegraph (UK). There are many, many others.

Remember, 8 of the 12 largest companies in the world by revenue are oil companies, 2 are auto manufacturers, 1 is a utility & the other is WalMart. They ALL have profound economic interests in AGW/CC denial, or at least delay in mitigation.

Careful laws could make the car makers, utility & WalMart more neutral, but the oil industry is still the richest in the world, by far. There are HUGE amounts of money & power behind AGW/CC denial.

So you claim. Then again I could claim with far more evidence that you are promoting a system that promotes an agenda over science and that history has shown that this is a reoccuring event.
I could also point out how often what you have held up as science has latter been proven to be anything but. For example the IPCC AR4 report. Recall any of the major oops in there like about glaciers in the highest part of the earth.
Science "proven wrong"? That's what YOU WISH, not what's happened. If you believe this, then you're blinded by the radical right wing media nutteria.

Yes, there was an "oops" about Himalayan glaciers in ONE SMALL PART of the IPCC report, while other, more important, parts of the report did NOT make the Himalayan mistake. Climatologists are human. They occasionally make mistakes.

Those things don't invalidate the theory, which has proven to be incredibly powerful in making predictions. Depending on how you count them, the theory has made between 17 & 20 predictions. That's pretty darn good IYAM.

Prove it.

Go thru every one of those correct predictions & find the flaw in the science.

Or maybe you'll just take it on faith, which would just be proof of your profound anti-scientific bias. If the facts fail to agree with your preconceived notions, then, like Hegel might say, it's too bad for the facts.

Whatever.

Just check the data, & prove what you're saying. I can back up my statements, you can't, except by resorting to generalizations (perhaps generalisations for you) & magical thinking.

And you think topix doesn’t 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.
