No? No, what? You're are a jerk in real life? You are a jerk on Topix?

Regardless of the answer, the evidence is overwhelming to the contrary.

Begone, jerk!

One thing is clear though you are very confused about the reality..
He's saying we're not 100% certain, so let's do nothing.

It might be different if his doctor told him "You MIGHT have colon cancer." Or if the doctor said "You could have thyroid cancer." He might be able to make a decision then.

I say he might. I don't know.

He wants us to kill our kids and grandkids with CO2 poisoning. He says he cares about HIS kids.

He might. I don't know.

You are stuck on your denial. What you say is not science.
Experimental data is science; why no published peer reviewed experiments for climate change mitigation? Do you suspect the effect of man made CO2 on global climate is too weak for experimental detection?

So let's say the doctor said you may have cancer and that the doctor tells you he has a treatment that is very costly and at the end of the treatment, you will still have cancer, but you will have 1/20,000 less cancer than before. Would you take the treatment?

>>So here's the state of play of climate science a third of a century into the global warming hysteria. They don't have a reliable baseline of global temperature measurements that would allow them to say what is normal and natural and what isn't. Their projections about future warming are demonstrably failing to predict the actual data. And now they have been caught, yet again, fudging the numbers and manipulating the graphs to show a rapid 20th-century warming that they want to be true but which they can't back up with actual evidence.
A theory with this many holes in it would be have been thrown out long ago, if not for the fact that it conveniently serves the political function of indicting fossil fuels as a planet-destroying evil and allowing radical environmentalists to put a modern, scientific face on their primitivist crusade to shut down industrial civilization.
But can't we all just stop calling this "science" now?

This is good. Like making lemonade from lemons. We have over 300 years of coal here in the US. If we can sequester it in building materials that would be great.

Water is poison if you drink too much.

Oxygen is poison if your lungs take in too much.

Anything can have the effect of poison if the quantity is great enough.

Science is poison to Brain_Dead.

No. There's not much sense is getting treatment if it doesn't do ANY good. My hypothetical assumed that the cancer was treatable and survivable, as colon or thyroid cancer are, IF CAUGHT SOON ENOUGH.

Your group thinks a person should wait for a cure for cancer before getting treatment for what we can fight with treatment now.

Give it up... your cancer analogy is terribly flawed, and is already tedious.

Not at all. The discussions are based on the conjecture that the science is all wrong without presenting any convincing information that it is so. With that kind of dialog, it is impossible to have a meaningful discussion.

CO2 is a GHG. Man is releasing much CO2 into the atmosphere through the burning of fossil fuels. The Earth is gaining heat. Those are the facts.

Continued..

The pH of oceans is decreasing with the absorption of CO2; ocean acidification has deadly consequences.

Warming seas are rising; shoreline people are in grave danger.

Global climate is changing; planetary life is facing a man-made exctinction of the first kind.

To be continued...
