Really?
Peer-Reviewed Survey Finds Majority Of Scientists Skeptical - Forbes
www.forbes.com/.../peer-reviewed-survey-finds ... ;
You dope!

Instead of reading the predigested Forbes article, why didn't you read the original source material. The study clearly was designed to survey denial-ism in geoscientists working in the petroleum industry in Alberta Canada.

From the intro:

[By linking notions of the science or science fiction of climate change to the assessment of the adequacy of global and local policies and of potential organizational responses, we contribute to the understanding of ‘defensive institutional work’ by professionals within petroleum companies, related industries, government regulators, and their professional association.]

While the data may be useful for understanding the beliefs of geologists and engineers in the oil industry in Alberta, it adds nothing to the research on climatology, nor does it have any impact on the consensus of scientist that work in the field. The people surveyed were expressing opinions outside their field of study, and have a vested financial interest in the denial of climate change.

You dope!

The Political ELITEs are feeding the 'SCIENTIFIC STUDY', everyone knows that the reports are rigged.
We need a 'metric', to remove the bodies from Government Service.

Thanks, Mothra.
If AGW is so real....such an emergency.....so dire.....why aren't the elected officials who promote this hoax riding bikes to work? Why do they insist on riding first class if theyre really ashamed of their fossil fuel usage? Why does Al Gore and other liberals live such lavish lifestyles with multiple homes? Can liberals lead by example???
NO!!! Because they really know this climate hoax is really bullshyt. What other conclusion can one come to? If it was as bad as they insist.....they would lead....not preach.
Al Gore 'lavish lifestyle'? He's wealthy is true, but not irresponsibly 'wealthy'. " Darren Samuelsohn wants you to know Al Gore is rich. Rich and skinny. His $200 million net worth and 50-pound weight loss (veganism) both come up in the first two paragraphs of a new interview in Politico, even before mention of his solar-powered houseboat.

But thankfully, once talk of Rich, Skinny Gore is over, climate takes center stage. If you don’t feel like spending your Friday afternoon reading all 5,000 words, here are some choice bits:

When I ask Gore … how he would describe his job, he says,“I want to catalyze the emergence of a solution to the climate crisis as quickly as possible. Period.”

Well, THAT’s maybe the best elevator spiel ever. HIRED." http://grist.org/list/al-gore-talks-climate-t...

Did you buy it? How about his many homes and jet travel; you think that's low carbon too? Why does Al get to live as lavish as he pleases but we get bans on incandescent light bulbs and ever higher energy and fuel prices?

RE: "but we get bans on incandescent light bulbs and ever higher energy and fuel prices? " You get to change out you energy-sucking 'incandescent bulbs' for more energy -efficient LED and CFL's that will actually lower your electric bill by using less energy---who's going to complain about that?

"Standard 60- and 40-watt bulbs are the last to be phased out, though remaining stock can be sold; 75-watt bulbs faded away in 2012 and 100-watt bulbs this year. Their replacement equivalents, compact fluorescent lightbulbs and light-emitting diode bulbs, are bright, use 75 to 80 percent less energy, and can save you $60 to $125 dollars per bulb in energy costs over their life, compared with a traditional 60-watt incandescent. Because homes have about 50 light bulbs, the savings can be significant.

But so is the investment. LEDs are expensive, up to $60 a bulb for some floodlights in our light bulb Ratings. Even at that price, an LED can save you about $170 over its lifetime compared with a similar incandescent. Increased competition is helping to lower prices. Manufacturers told us that more $10 LEDs are coming next year, and there are already several bulbs in our Ratings for $20 or less." http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/magazine/2...

Al Gore would be a sucker if he did not invest in Energy Star CFL's , but I doubt that he's dumb enough to keep his phased out old incandescent light bulbs like some nuts on topix.com do . lol

One Denier troll gives reacharound to another. Pathetic.

Why is warming all about Al Gore to witless ravers like you? Simple answer is that it's all political, not scientific at all. None of you KNOWS anything about science, none of you BELIEVE scientists who tell you what you don't want to know, and all of you are addicted to these silly distractions about "lavish lifestyles" that you'd HAPPILY excuse if they were being lived by your fellow Righties.

Why preach to trolls like you? Warming's happening. Ignore it at your peril, beeeyotttchhh.

You don't have "scientist friends," Beth. You don't have friends at all, or know ANYTHING about science. If you did, you wouldn't say such stupid things.

You're certainly a fool, probably a liar, and maybe not even female. Certainly you're a joke.

"Concern and frugality?" WTF are you even talking about?
