3 volcanos erupting ,snow fall in the high country last night , record cool temps from the gulf to canada ! And yea we all know all cause by ghg's ,climate .globull and man !!! NEVER ! NEVER ! could it be natural but always man made yet where is the long termed proof ?? no one can offer any ! just more bogus biased ipcc bull shipp and crap short termed computer programed reports from job scared lying people and org's.
It would be interesting to see just how long the globull,climate scare would continue if taxpayer funds were cut off and had to rely on private funding and donations only ????

Obscene art is the installed 340-tonne rock that was moved to Los Angeles, CA, USA for $10million. What's its carbon footprint?

Then a denier shows up here to second guess the science that has exposed the man-made global warming. Their posts are so ridiculous and any answer is a waste of time. They could be some of those people who gave their $$$ to fund the obscene rock, which is far worse than their love for tire burning to pollute unnecessarily.[They are proud to do this, LOL.]

Then we find out: A new cosmic map shows how our Milky Way galaxy is just a tiny part of a massive galaxy supercluster that scientists have dubbed 'Laniakea'. The Milky Way galaxy resides on the outskirts of a massive, previously unknown galaxy super-cluster scientists have named Laniakea, from Hawaiian words for "immeasurable heaven."

So modern humans know they reside in

1. neighborhood rock
2. planet Earth
3. atmosphere bubble
4. solar system
5. solar bubble
6. Milky Way Galaxy
7. Laniakea supercluster.

There you are, folks.

This is priceless, kool aid drinkers posturing about science as the basis for denouncing my position when their science is conjecture based on the following quantifying words and phrases: May, Possibly, Could,, in all likelihood, a connection can be made, etc, etc, etc.
Also let's not forget the often touted peer reviews that come from experts in their given fields and 80% of the time their area of expertise isn't even remotely connected to climate study.
Not forgetting one of their best:
"Faster/Stronger/Worse than previously expected," but never saying how fast/strong/worse it was previously expected to be.

Why is it called global climate change?

Why are different scenarios used to calculate future consequences?

DUH! Not because it is a predictable constant forcing nor is it not the first-time in human history.

By the way, how about that government funded climate gate? Yeah, all those great scientists have egg all over their face. They lied just to keep their jobs and to trying get the government more money, because if they did convince the people and the government is allowed to Tax us even harder, then those government scientist would be reaping a lot more benefits. You scratch my back I'll scratch yours.

Where do you get this stuff? It is apparent that you have no concept of the scientific method. If a scientist lies or falsifies the data to support his work he is excoriated by his peers. That is how it works and why the scientific method has taken us so far. There are those who wish to denegrate science for political purposes. They will ultimately lose. Science is not a conservative concept.

To see how our government controls and speels whatever it can from whoever it can, by using the people and each type of endeavor, look at The topic, """look who just got busted.""" """Read the last couple of entries.

How about the two piece of garbage scientists that are controlling science so hard that they can nullify a whole conference?

That's government corruption at its finest.

Science conference Dino bones
It's clear to see that an entire conference by scientists is being ignored by 2 morons. Of course you morons include yourselves.
Read carefully. The two chairmen over-rode the entire conference. They must hate science.
Researchers have found a reason for the puzzling survival of soft tissue and collagen in dinosaur bones - the bones are younger than anyone ever guessed. Carbon-14 (C-14) dating of multiple samples of bone from 8 dinosaurs from Texas, Alaska, Colorado, and Montana revealed that they are only 22,000 to 39,000 years old. Since dinosaurs are thought to be over 65 million years old, the news is stunning. And more than some can tolerate. After the AOGS-AGU conference in Singapore, the abstract was removed from the conference website by two chairmen because they could not accept the findings. Unwilling to challenge the data openly, they erased the report from public view without a word to the authors or even to the AOGS officers, until after an investigation. It won't be restored.
By the way, the two doddering old morons that overrode an entire conference, along with you doddering old morons, know that if those two morons in charge had let the conference stand, it would disapprove long age, which is the basis for evolution.

Wow.. you got the name wrong.

As to where he is wrong is extreme. Then you will not comprehend the reply.

You are on your own for your education outside the denier circle. Good luck.

P.S. Not all news media is like Steyn.

You are so gullible that you will believe whatever you think proves the government is evil. Please dig a little deeper and you will find the real fossils.

I guess you're not smart enough to understand that this is not about religion, it's straightforward, two chairman in the world of science refused to allow intelligent debate by many other scientists and then the two chairman refuse to allow it to be even discussed at a future time, while they had it stricken from the record.

That's the true nature of science, it is fully corrupt, just like the government that pays the scientists for this kind of work.

It's a creationist website, why are you citing it if you're not a creationist?

And no, nobody who claims dinosaurs were alive a few thousand years ago is a scientist or talking science. And yes, the correct response by real scientists to such claims is dismiss them out of hand.

I didn't see anything on there that claimed it was a creationist website, why don't you point it out, unless you're not able.
