You think you are rational?

You make countless posts on a subject you know nothing about, and are incapable of knowing anything about, just to annoy people?

Obnoxious, vacuous, hateful and ignorant are more appropriate adjectives.

Well my agenda is simple, to expose ignorance especially if it is an opinion based on myth and not fact. Environmentally every country has it's limits on growth and how many people the land mass will support not just in resources but also in infrastructure. But who is going to say 400 million is enough. They won't be popular with the corporate war lords and it''s the same with global warming. 400 ppm of CO2 as the line never to cross and we crossed it, so it takes a brave government to do the right thing. Especially when it's swimming in a pool of bigots and ignorance.

you think i'm irrrational, shug?

tell us what you actually know on the subject of climate change, global warming, or anything for that matter, dummy!

i get under your skin, son!! it's because i ask questions you aren't smart enough to answer! LOL your only response and reaction is that you know more than the rest of us. so far, you've only proven the contrary.

why ask me about 911, btw??? would that prove or contradict anything about your contrived views of AGW? or....are you just trying to appeal to emotion, as usual?

stop trying to portray yourself as a "bright bulb", son....that's the only way you'll ever step into the "light".

There is growing evidence that conspiratorial thinking, also known as conspiracist ideation, is often involved in the rejection of scientific propositions. Conspiracist ideations tend to invoke alternative explanations for the nature or source of the scientific evidence. For example, among people who reject the link between HIV and AIDS, common ideations involve the beliefs that AIDS was created by the U.S. Government.

My colleagues and I published a paper recently that found evidence for the involvement of conspiracist ideation in the rejection of scientific propositions—from climate change to the link between tobacco and lung cancer, and between HIV and AIDS—among visitors to climate blogs. This was a fairly unsurprising result because it meshed well with previous research and the existing literature on the rejection of science. Indeed, it would have been far more surprising, from a scientific perspective, if the article had not found a link between conspiracist ideation and rejection of science.

There are no peer reviewed experimental tests of either man made global warming or climate change mitigation. That's how you can tell climate change mitigation is a hoax and man made catastrophic global warming is pseudoscience.
