We don't need a forum for that, we already know. Starting with why Fox loves to call itself a news channel when in fact it's just an opinion channel much like the home shopping network. 90% of what is claimed on Fox is just not true and the 10% of the time when it is true, no one notices.

Why does it bother you, there's one TV network that's not on the left?

Please don't speak poorly of the Tea Party. I've met many of them and they are really nice fun family people. They do lots of sports with their kids and invite friends and family over for barbecue in the backyard and sometimes down at the beach.

Sure, they live amongst us. I know. I feel sorry for them. They are dumb and elderly. Very vulnerable to charlatans and other Fox News liars.

Rightuptheasshole is really an angry little guy. Ever since his wife soaked him for new ti ts then dumped him he's been a little unhinged. So damn unhinged he'd let me catch him arguing against the 95% of the people that do it for a living.

Probability is the language of science, There is no proof; there are no absolute certainties, day trader idiot. Scientists are always aware that new data may overturn old theories and that human knowledge is constantly evolving. Problem is you fkn morons don't have anything but right wing bull sh it to sway your case

Liar? You lunkhead. APS reviews it's policy statements every five years.
The American Physical Society formally reviews its statements every five years. In accordance with that process, the APS Panel on Public Affairs (POPA) formed a Subcommittee to review its Climate Change Statement....
As part of the POPA-approved process, on January 8, 2014 the Subcommittee convened a workshop with six climate experts....
http://www.aps.org/policy/statements/climate-...
Check the date on your link... November 18, 2007
"If true"?
"I was one of the experts invited to attend the January 8 Workshop. The other invitees were Bill Collins, Ben Santer, Isaac Held, Richard Lindzen, and John Christy."
-- Judith Curry
http://judithcurry.com/2014/02/19/aps-reviews...
The story is about how some skeptics are now part of their process, aka "climate experts".
btw, from JC's post, "Finally, while speaking of the APS, I have an invited presentation at the forthcoming March APS meeting in Denver, Causes and implications of the growing divergence between climate model simulations and observations"
Feel stupid?
You should.
Three of the biggest climate science misinformers.
Three people who are wrong about climate science.

Will the APS see through them?

Given the fact that human industrialization is unique in the history of planet earth, do we really need historical precedent for CO2-triggered climate change before we accept what we observe today? Surely it is not far-fetched that unprecedented consequences would follow from unprecedented events.

Calm down tea bag scientists I already know you will laugh at facts and truth but it is fun to watch you laugh at noaa and nasa.

Current Analysis Method
The current analysis uses satellite observed nightlights to identify measurement stations located in extreme darkness and adjust temperature trends of urban and peri-urban stations for non-climatic factors, verifying that urban effects on analyzed global change are small. A paper describing the current analysis was published (Hansen et al. 2010) in Reviews of Geophysics in December 2010. The paper compares alternative analyses, and address questions about perception and reality of global warming. Alternative choices for the ocean data are tested. It is shown that global temperature change is sensitive to estimated temperature change in polar regions, where observations are limited. We suggest use of 12-month (and n×12) running mean temperature to fully remove the annual cycle and improve information content in temperature graphs. We conclude that global temperature continued to rise rapidly in the past decade, despite large year-to-year fluctuations associated with the El Niņo-La Niņa cycle of tropical ocean temperature. Record high global temperature during the period with instrumental data was reached in 2010. After that paper appeared, version 3 of the GHCN data became available. The current analysis is now based on the adjusted GHCN v3 data for the data over land. The ocean data are now based on NOAA ERSST for the sake of simplicity, replacing a prior concatenation of Hadley Center's HadSST1 and the satellite-based NOAA (Reynolds) OISST.

You're getting as bad as Spaceblues... It's a "crisis", but you'll go ahead and post inanities and pump out more CO2.

btw, you know that makes you a hypocrite too, don't you?
