Any one who posts "heat rises" is ignorant.

P.S. Poster in #1 is ignorant. Ignore him.

..... "The planet is warming, and its doing it fastest in the North..."
..... HAPPY NEW YEAR! Probably Earthling-1's post was sarcasm. Yeah, during HEATED arguments people are apt to rise![LAUGHS](And hurt one another even, maybe)
..... As for the North Pole district (you can't go further north than that), maybe Earthling-1 should visit it,(wearing only a bathing suit?), to see how warm it is there!

To a list that includes extreme weather patterns and disappearing polar bears, you can add another dispiriting effect of climate change: too many males. Three years ago, Francesc Piferrer and other scientists working at Barcelona's Institute of Marine Sciences proved that rising water temperatures caused some species of fish to produce a disproportionate ratio of males to females. Now, Piferrer and his team have gone on to discover something of a mechanism behind that imbalance.

Hey funders of earthling posts, fire the poster!

He thinks science is mere words. He spreads ignorance in our planet. Is that what you want?

Fire earthling asap!

Maybe your funders should fire you and hire Earthling instead. As far as I know he is like me, unfunded and not needing to be funded.

Let's try asking:

Earthling: are you paid to post on Topix?

Maybe he would be a little less shy about it if you told him who pays you and how much.

What are your scientific qualifications?
----------
What is your specialised field of science?
How closely allied to climate science is your specialised field?
The following question was removed, FuG claims to be a scientist, but hasn't specified the field.
"Are you a professional scientist, as opposed to the amateur variety?"
I gather he's either a biologist, chemist, engineer, doctor, vet, food scientist, computer scientist or mathematician, "with three years of statistics on a university science course."

Saying tripe like that makes you sound like a scientific illiterate. From one of the ecowhackos favorite sites we find this:

http://factcheck.org/2008/06/polar-bear-popul...

Of course, they go on an on with buts, buts, buts like all good libecowhackos, the bottom line is the numbers have increased. And we all know despite the goreballistic pseudo-scientific claims to the contrary the Arctic Ice Sheet is not going bye bye.

Oh, and as far as the ratio of males increasing, well, take a look at Pres Obama's favorite totalitarian regime, Communist China. There they have that nice little one child policy which Ehrlich and co. so revere. They selectively abort their females in a manner far more efficiently than nature could do. Thereby gaining a fantastically high ratio. That's what all good elitist types want, right?

More to the point, he discredits every issue he is trying to promote just by being so clueless, spamming on things like spelling or typos, and by misreading so much simple english.

"Explores" ... isn't that the post modernist word for "concocts some random b.s." ? Come somewhere in between "deconstructing pedagogies" and "undermining hegemonic social structures." In other words, this is completely meaningless gibberish used to fool gullible morons into supporting a worthless cause.

Your slip shows when you use the posts of a know nothing child to back your own garbage, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty.

I'm still wating for an explanation of your CO2 as a thermal pollutant theory that no one else has been able to explain?
