Snow flakes and raindrops? You mean precipitates?

No, that would be plural.
One raindrop or one snowflke would be a precipipotatoe.

Shell and the other top Fortune 500 companies are not the ones being hoaxed. You are.

And here's another guy who, according to you, must be either a communist or a sucker. Lee Iacocca says it took him awhile to accept AGW, because of his career in the auto business. But unlike some, Iacocca has the cojones to face an uncomfortable truth.
This is an exerpt from Iacocca's book. http://books.google.ca/books...

"For Shell the debate on climate change is over. We accept the science as outlined in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's fourth assessment report. And we support regulations to help achieve these reductions."

Another book on another so called hoax. It seems like you name any subject in modern history and there is someone claiming it is a hoax. A good examples of that are the moon landings. There hare plenty of books written by some so called expert that claims one thing or another and is later found out to be nothing more than the rantings of a loon. So what is reason should someone not put this book in that same catagory other than you despirately want to believe it is real?

"[UPDATE 9] OK, how about droughts? After all, droughts are supposed to be one of the terrible things that accompany warming, and the earth has warmed over the last century. Here’s the Palmer Drought Severity Index for that time span, 1901-2002:

Which is to say, you don't like what ALL the world's leading scientific academies are telling you, so you deny it.

That wouldn't bother me except for the fact that your effort to delay action on this completely screws the rest of us, and twenty generations to come. You may as well take a daily dump in the water supply.

The main problem is that many scientists believe the results obtained from their computer models and a lot of sheeple follow mindlessly behind them.
How many times have you read this:
97% of scientists agree, there's a consensus, it must be true.

A citation is required for that ridiculous claim, please?

NB: It must specify that public scepticism will be a direct cause of harm to you and, "twenty generations to come."
