No comments about hurricanes or ice age interruptus.

Just remarks about the hypocrisy of a capitalist, as if making money was a crime.

These teabaggers want capitalistic freedom, but complain about one capitalist's freedom.

Now, that's hypocrisy!

Plus the fact that Al Gore did not cause global warming, did not invent global warming, and campaigns against global warming in his own humanly fallible way.

More stupidity from the right.

Nope, not the same connections to the oil industry, but another example of his hypocrisy.

Ok....do you actually think the court decision is going to "throw in" a Nobel Prize if Mann wins his case?

Well, well, well...this is interesting.

It seems 'ol gaveman cares not to deign his comments to particular people on this thread. As if thinks talking in the thread in general fools anyone.

But it doesn't matter, as his argument is puerile.

Al Gore made a butt-load of money selling out his TV network to an oil emir, after having made butt-loads of money talking up global warming due to the use of those same fossil fuels.

But to the devoted that's capitalism... and a non-argument.

To the unjaundiced eye, that's hypocrisy.

So what!, When Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney & co decided a war with Iraq would be a good idea did any of his to level administration kids end up there ? I don't think so. Even the British Royals have sent their kids into any conflicts they have been involved in. Yet Cheney & co made huge profits off the backs of American lives lost in Iraq for no good reason. That's hypocrisy at its worst.

The concept of making money out of green is NO different than making money out of oil. Yet your lot can't handle that, get over it. All Al is doing is using the same system to drive his cause EXACTLY the same way that fossil money uses the system to drive their cause.

What story would that be,mutt? Whatever you're talking about, I'm willing to bet it's not nearly as bogus as your claim that "Mann is a Nobel Prize winning scientist".

God you make this too easy,son!

btw......your opinions don't really matter anymore. I've shown you're a PROVEN LIAR!!

Mann is a Nobel winning scientist, I posted and even explained why over and over. One denier is still whining about it.. because that denier is a PROVEN LIAR!

Why does it object so much? Because it lacks anything to say in the forum. Poor poor poster, LOL.

Moving on...

Stage 2b: Consensus Denial

In Murdoch's The Australian, Andrew Montford took a different approach to deny that we're the cause of the problem, attacking the expert consensus on human-caused global warming. Specifically he attacked the Cook et al.(2013) study finding 97 percent consensus on this question in the peer-reviewed scientific literature.

In order to deny the consensus, Montford employed the Climategate strategy, using material stolen during a hacking of the private Skeptical Science discussion forum. He then pulled quotes out of context to claim the study was "a public relations exercise," because we discussed how to effectively communicate our consensus results. In reality, the comments Montford used to support this argument were made after we had preliminary results reviewing nearly 14,000 peer-reviewed abstracts that found only 24 rejecting the human-caused global warming consensus.

Montford's article demonstrates the inherent dangers in quoting illegally obtained private correspondence. First, there is the obvious ethical issue of republishing private correspondence obtained through an illegal act. Second, using isolated quotes extracted from private conversations runs the risk of taking comments out of context and misrepresenting the facts.

In any case, we have set up a public ratings system so that anybody can read and rate the scientific abstracts. If you don't believe the vast body of evidence of an expert consensus on human-caused global warming, test it for yourself. Moreover, the scientist ratings of their own papers – independent of our abstract ratings – also resulted in a 97 percent consensus.
