No - that's not quite the apology you owe.

Try again. Show us you have a modicum of honor, integrity, and basic civility. Many think you do not. I prefer to give you the benefit of the doubt.

Please don't disappoint me.

NO, you are the name caller and the hot head.

Go back and read the sequence and realize you owe me apologies.

Carry on with your troll bot. You don't know what many think when you don't even know you are wrong.

You can't even stand on your own two feet, obviously. You have to bring "oh noes!"

They are out of touch with reality. They want to legislate you under control much like the Blue Dogs. My bad they are now one and the same.

And?
I didn't say Wiki was perfect, I said the large number of posters tended to push it toward the truth.
It's still way, way, way, way, WAY more reliable than the average denier or tabloid site deniers usually post here. It's also easier to understand than scientific journal articles but DOES have links to them so you can read the original after getting general background from Wiki. It remains a very good place to start.
And you based that it is more accurate on something other than what you want to be true. The simple truth about Wikipedia is it has limited authorship because of it's history. The same lonely, aganda driven white men like Connonelly have turned what was suppose to be a shining source of knowledge into a sludgepool of fiction in certain areas. While it has shown that it can be a starting point it has a long way to go before it can ever be considered creditable on this particular subject.

What you are seeing is your desire for what is posted there to be right. To back what you really want to believe instead of what is true. You claim that it is more accurate than the "average denier or tabloid site deniers post" and yet I doubt you could point to any alarmist site and refer to them with the same line. That is because your bias is such that anything that disagrees with what you want to be true is deemed wrong and that which agrees is deemed right.

This is a recurrring theme with tina. It's part of her antiscience stance because she has no science or mathematics.
She's promoting a parallel system where antiscience fights science.
So you claim. Then again I could claim with far more evidence that you are promoting a system that promotes an agenda over science and that history has shown that this is a reoccuring event.

I could also point out how often what you have held up as science has latter been proven to be anything but. For example the IPCC AR4 report. Recall any of the major oops in there like about glaciers in the highest part of the earth.

Once again, we see Tina's tried-and-true method for discussing climate science: cover ears, close eyes and shout, "la, la, la! I can't hear you! La, la, la, la!".

The fiction is what deniers say. If you want to know what's true, look at the real science. Papers predicting warming between 1991 & 2012 outnumber those that predict cooling by APPROX ~600 to 1. Yet somehow YOU are smarter than thousands of climatologists who make the study of climate their life's work.

OK. Whatever.

The denier sites, people & organizations include Watts, c3, Breitbart, Chri$topher Monckton, Spencer, Christy, the Heartland Institute & the Telegraph (UK). There are many, many others.

Remember, 8 of the 12 largest companies in the world by revenue are oil companies, 2 are auto manufacturers, 1 is a utility & the other is WalMart. They ALL have profound economic interests in AGW/CC denial, or at least delay in mitigation.

Careful laws could make the car makers, utility & WalMart more neutral, but the oil industry is still the richest in the world, by far. There are HUGE amounts of money & power behind AGW/CC denial.
