When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

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.

Ok....do you actually think the court decision is going to "throw in" a Nobel Prize if Mann wins his case?
LOL your idiocy reveals itself more with every "contribution" you post on the forum !
You've become the densest poster!

Consider yourself a noncontributor ever since you appeared in this forum. You started with an alleged story that was pure bogus.

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.

You should research the Nobel Prize list of winners. You won't find Michael Mann's name anywhere on the list, mutt!

Try as you might to divert, but Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite.

Maybe Mr. Gore is a hypocrite.

But if Mr. Gore plows that $70 million back into climate change education and action, that would probably remove any residual hypocrisy.

Maybe that's what bothers denialists, other than that they have no other argument to make.

Maybe Al Gore is a bad, bad little boy, but that doesn't change the fact that the Earth is warming, we are causing it, and there are things we can do to stop it.

The oceans are more acidic now than they have been for at least 300m years, due to carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels, and a mass extinction of key species may already be almost inevitable as a result, leading marine scientists warned on Thursday.

An international audit of the health of the oceans has found that overfishing and pollution are also contributing to the crisis, in a deadly combination of destructive forces that are imperilling marine life, on which billions of people depend for their nutrition and livelihood.

In the starkest warning yet of the threat to ocean health, the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) said: "This [acidification] is unprecedented in the Earth's known history. We are entering an unknown territory of marine ecosystem change, and exposing organisms to intolerable evolutionary pressure. The next mass extinction may have already begun." It published its findings in the State of the Oceans report, collated every two years from global monitoring and other research studies.

Alex Rogers, professor of biology at Oxford University, said: "The health of the ocean is spiralling downwards far more rapidly than we had thought. We are seeing greater change, happening faster, and the effects are more imminent than previously anticipated. The situation should be of the gravest concern to everyone since everyone will be affected by changes in the ability of the ocean to support life on Earth."
