An emotional write-up is easy to ignore. Remember it takes a village of scientists to discuss our global climate.

Happer's AGW denial dates far before the article's date of 2011. He didn't have to drag himself off to Europe to say what he's been saying for a decade(s?).

He's a Denier, which is only significant at all because he's a Princeton U. Physics Professor.

Yes it does take a village of scientist to discuss global climate. It also takes a village of idiots to believe in scientific science fiction useless babble like the above.

Europe? Argonne is in the Chicago area.

The heartless inc is linked however.

So. I'd better enlist:

More and more that’s all the "pinheadlitesout" have more and more diarrheas.

Aww .. Diarrhea troll above has nothing to say but its diarrhea... As I posted before it changed my post, it needs to find a bathroom and settle there away from Topix.

Diarrhea troll be gone like the other deniers of science! LOL.

Sorry. The 'trees' comment got me to thinking about the Argonne Forest.

Oh, no problem. Now I'll have to look up the Argonne Forest. Thanks.

Speaking of Europe, here's an open science conference coming up during April 2-5, 2013.

More than 150 scientists from over 20 different countries will meet to discuss the responses of ecosystems to climate variability and weather extremes, based on experimental evidence and modeling of the biosphere-climate system.

Rising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations not only lead to global warming but also to increased climate variability and extreme weather situations. Within the past decade an exceptionally high number of extreme heat waves occurred around the globe: Record breaking temperatures hit central Western Europe in 2003, causing a large number of fatalities due to heat stress. In South-Eastern Europe dramatic wildfires ravaged in 2007, especially in Greece. Together with huge forest fires, an extraordinary heat wave with record temperatures led to a high and long-lasting air pollution in western Russia in 2010. The drought in 2011-2012 was reported to be one of the most severe ever recorded in the United States, with an economic loss of billions of dollars and heavy crop failures.

Not only severe droughts and heat waves but also extreme precipitation and windstorms can impact the structure, composition, and functioning of terrestrial ecosystems. The importance of extreme climatic events for the carbon balance became clear after the 2003 heat wave in Central and Southern Europe. Triggered by this month-long anomaly, the ecosystems lost as much CO2 as they had absorbed from the atmosphere through the previous four years under normal weather conditions.

Recent evidence also suggests that extreme weather may influence the carbon balance of our terrestrial biosphere such that it accelerates climate change. Co-organizers Dr. Michael Bahn, Associate Professor at University of Innsbruck, and Dr. Markus Reichstein, Max-Planck Director at the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, state unanimously:“Several lines of evidence indicate water-cycle extremes, in particular droughts, being a dominant risk for the carbon cycle in large parts of Europe. The largest and most diverse and enduring effects of extreme events are expected in forests.”

Wrong again spacedoutblues it's the meds your on needs correction. You never posted your peer reviewed published work. To date all you have is cut and paste scientific science fiction useless babble. You contracted a case of diarrhea from the "pinheadlitesout" get you head out of it's behind and seek immediate attention from a doctor.
