lol.....you talk about knowledge of philosophy, you talk about knowledge of psychology, you talk about knowledge of astronomy, you talk about knowledge of 'climatology'. maybe you should narrow your scope and relay what you actually know, son.

so far.....you've just spouted opinions and googled terms.

There is no uncertainty. There is only denial. And denial is traitorous and cuts the throats of my descendents.

Despite 300 & 400 astronomy courses, physics courses are still required. I suspect you were at some business college that couldn't tell the difference between astronomy & physics & had either/or requirements.

Many physicists take astronomy courses, so they might more readily understand sub-atomic structures & forces due to their macro effects......& astronomers take physics courses so they can more readily understand stellar, galactic & even super galactic processes due to sub-atomic structures & forces.

You initially moved the subject to MD's. I detailed that potential MD's had taken science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra & pre-calc in their well earned high school diplomas. Then, I gave details as to interactions between physicists & astronomers, interrelating & connecting their two POVs. Since I did that, you became lost, will not concede my points, & now try to move the conversation back to MD's....... which argument you lost previously.

Yeah, "ratdownthemiddledownwron ggully" loses, changes subjects, loses again, changes subjects again......... a mighty fine specimen of sleazy, slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars, who are often sleazy, slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pigs.

i correctly pointed out that many or most MD's probably never took astronomy. It isn't even allowed as a physics credit at many Med Schools.

you're delusional if you believe you've ever won an argument, too, son!

btw.....you never said what your field of study is/was or what type degree you've earned!! pretty revealing as to what school you went to. thanks for providing the 'institution' you went to!

Of course it is, you might ask the Australians that while the north & big food bowl producer braces for a CAT 5 super storm after experiencing the same thing just in 2011. Yeah it's all about the money and what could have been prevention cost vs repair costs. I wonder how the US will throw the dice next hurricane season.

read your article again. The current storm is a cat 4. Trying to amp up the co2 intensity on your own?
Besides.....even if it was a 5... That's about average frequency for over the last century.

You mean "some" science, don't you?

New paper finds significant decreasing trend of Australian tropical cyclones
A paper published today in Atmospheric Science Letters finds "a significant decreasing trend in [Australian tropical cyclone] numbers at the 9398% confidence level." The paper adds to many others finding cyclone and storm activity has decreased globally with warming, despite the opposite cries of alarmists.
