This forum is the funniest in Topix. It provides those posters without an iota of science an opportunity to lie and misrepresent modern science. They go as far as attacking verbally the scientists who are active in research.

Oh they do this 24/7/12.

Did you say the BEST data
http://www.woodfortrees.org/plot/best-upper/f...
Oh, gee. "Audio waveform - Raw data - Charity Tip Jar" is real convincing..

But I meant the BEST study. http://tinyurl.com/cgxj7j8

"CALL me a converted skeptic. Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. Iím now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause. "

So the 'errors' that are touted by the denialists over and over were found to be nothing of the sort.

And the Berkley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) study showed that there was no basis to the criticisms raised by the denialists.

And why there is a selection of 'good' meteorology stations used. MOST of the 'problem' stations are in urban environments, and there is a HUGE oversupply of them there. So only GOOD stations without problems are selected and validated.

Station 'mapping' is distributed by AREA so even urban stations with UHI ( corrected for anyway by comparison to surrounding rural stations) do not distort the data (as validated by the BEST study)

WOW.

You are not even funny!

These space photographs show the world's islands as they've never been seen before.

What looks like a fish in one image, and a collection of blue gems in another are actually Heron Island and part of the Great Barrier Reef, both in Australia.

Absolutely fascinating and beautiful.

BUT..

there are two pictures labelled 'Akimiski Island' in James Bay. They do not match at ALL. Any ideas?

I guess this will be another report to dismiss because the scientists must all drive Hummers.

"Ice in Antarctica and Greenland is disappearing faster and may drive sea levels higher than predicted this century, according to leaked United Nations documents.

Greenlandís ice added six times more to sea levels in the decade through 2011 than in the prior 10 years, according to a draft of the UNís most comprehensive study on climate change. Antarctica had a fivefold increase, and the UN is raising its forecast for how much the two ice sheets will add to Earthís oceans by 2100. "

Anything can have the effect of poison if the quantity is great enough.
In the context of biology, poisons are substances that cause disturbances to organisms,[1] usually by chemical reaction or other activity on the molecular scale, when a sufficient quantity is absorbed by an organism. The fields of medicine (particularly veterinary) and zoology often distinguish a poison from a toxin, and from a venom. Toxins are poisons produced by some biological function in nature, and venoms are usually defined as toxins that are injected by a bite or sting to cause their effect, while other poisons are generally defined as substances absorbed through epithelial linings such as the skin or gut.

You can drink to much water and die. and to much oxygen can kill you. Yes not poison per-say.
