Of course, you have 10-16 years less training, education & work in science & mathematics than all the thousands of scientists you demean..... the Dunning-Kruger Force is strong in this one.

I always enjoy reading your intellectually stimulating posts. They always remind me why it's so important to think freely and draw my own conclusions about debates instead of being intellectually banal. As your kind always are. The sad thing is your kind actually believe that you're the smartest bunch around. Makes me laugh. But unfortunately the serious nature of the fight makes me stop and take pause, for your kind are too blinded by your ideology to understand just how stupid you really are.

About curmudgeon: The farce is strong in this one.
He claims that GOD is his servant and that GOD will protect his 'right' and 'freedom' to abuse, rape, pillage, and otherwise destroy the good in the earth. This is not that uncommon in right wingers that 'wrap the cross' around them in the same way that 'patriots' justify wars by wrapping the flag around themselves.
A good example of his kind of 'enlightenment' would be the German Bishop Tebartz-van Elst who spent about $50 on a palatial mansion for himself, oops I mean for the greater glory of GOD.. ha ha
Or the inquisition (false accusations to obtain property) or the Crusades (honor and plunder in GODs name).
He really really disgusts me. And his claim that GOD doesn't want us to understand the universe HE made is just 'dark ages' stupidity.
Yep your the type that since you cant refute the facts and don't like the message you attack the messenger. so you make up lies to try and discredit the poster. I never made any references to the things you claim in this tirade of lies.

Earthquakes----mankind is responsible.
Tsunamis-------it's man's fault.
Hurricanes-----caused by humanity.
Global warming----Since it is our doing, we can reverse it.

C'mon people, don't fall for this nonsense! No one is more powerful than Mother Nature.

Nah. Just AGW. Of course MINOR effects on the frequencies of earthquakes (also tsunamis), intensity of hurricane (and cyclones) and yes. We know how we caused AGW and thus how to moderate AGW.

C'mon people. Don't fall for Rambeaux nonsense.

Climate sceptics more likely to be conspiracy theorists, study claims
http://www.theguardian.com/environment/planet...
What do your remark have to do with climate change....Well, I'll will ya.

Climate change denial, laissez-faire economics, and conspiracy theorizing, all suggests that these rather diverse belief systems may lie on a continuum. That climate change denialists don’t believe in anthropogenic global warming is a given, but are there other more general indicators of their belief system that include climate change denial as a subset?
The correlation of climate change denial with free market capitalism was stronger and not completely unsurprising but the correlation with a conspiratorial mindset is more unexpected and intriguing.
Once free-market ideologues make up their mind that complete government withdrawal from markets is the only way to ensure prosperity, then it’s not surprising to find them inclined to disbelieve even rigorous scientific evidence that would somehow point to more increased government regulation as a solution. Simply put, ideology trumps facts. The rejection of established science because of its perceived failure to conform to preconceived beliefs is a classic case of motivated reasoning. This would be consistent with the incompatibility of an extreme free-market viewpoint with denial of climate change. Since free-market ideology also usually tracks well with conservative politics, it is not surprising to find most denials of climate change coming from the right.
Seen through this lens it’s not surprising to find belief in laissez-faire capitalism tracking well with conspiracy theorizing since proponents of laissez-faire are inherently suspicious of the government. For instance the king of climate change denial, Senator James Inhofe, has constantly called climate change a government-sponsored “hoax”. Inhofe thinks that thousands of scientists all over the world combined with dozens of government agencies have somehow had the brilliance and capability to pull the wool over the eyes of the entire world.
Unfortunately it’s not easy to disabuse people of a conspiracy mindset since, presenting evidence to the contrary only makes them more convinced of the diabolical success of the supposed conspiracy. Which in this case is, unfortunately, Global Warming.

Interesting. So, the idea that we challenge consensus as supposed scientific fact means that we "denialists" are conspiracy theorists. Hilarious. It intrigues me that globalists assume they are the independent thinkers, when it fact it is they who simply moo, chew their cud and follow the herd even though it may cause them to appear as though they are infected with BSE and madly jerking around. But I digress. There is no "conspiracy". One simply has to follow the money. The UN funds faux climate scientists to produce data showing they need control over your life. The world's governments see the benefit to themselves and supply funding in kind. The shills, er scientists, recognize that there's gold in them thar hills and supply the requested "science" and thereby guarantee their next round of funding. One must understand that the true denialists are those who ignore reality and deny that the anthropoglobalclimategenicwarm ingchange gamers are perpetrating a hoax for their monetary benefit. Conspiracy implies shadow puppetry. The hoax game is out in the open for everyone to see...

Why did President Obama and his staff fake the woman's fainting spell at the Rose Garden news conference? It's easily proven that it was faked. When you start to understand why these Leftists will fake such mediocre things as this to further a Socialist tyranny policy, you will begin to understand why the Leftist administrations since Carter have been faking the climate data.
They are cynical liars, cheats and thieves... that's why.

Intentionally biases science arranged for decades to control masses of people with fear based assertions of the most extreme nature was thoroughly discussed by the Communist leaders of the anti-war movement as they saw their impact on youthful activists diminishing with the decline of the Vietnam war. That's documented. Check out the waning publications of Ramparts and Seven Days magazines for complete exposure of their intent to replace the anti-war fervor with environmental challenges. Soon after, you had the Carter Global 2000 Report, all a precursor to what you have today and all of it without foundation, except the Communist Democrat intention to use food and energy as weapons.
Paranoia is treatable. Side effects include reduced mental function, but in your case, no one would know the difference.
