Maybe he dosn't realize when people actually examine the evidence that has been presented it turns out the evidence is more fiction than fact. That man made global warming when placed in the context of world history doesn't fit and appears illogical.

Nope.

Note how he talks about examining the science and you talk about examining the observer?

That is because you cannot stand or understand the science and your 'speculation' on any bias or mistake by those who DO is bogus.

I love how all this cold winter, day to day wetaher didnt relate to global warming, but a rainy day and the summer heat...well...here we have it...

doesnt anyone think more moisture will level off temps?

my favorite part about this is the irony of the green mountain state watching its emissions while other nations and INDUSTRIAL centers are not...

talk about a drop in the bucket...

The EPA tell us, "Some greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide occur naturally and are emitted to the atmosphere through natural processes and human activities."
The EPA then lists all GHGs, but only mentions the amount emitted by humans, not bothering to inform us of the amount emitted naturally.

There's a very good reason for this, if Joe public saw the numbers, he'd laugh his socks off and ask what the problem is.
Take a closer look at the numbers and judge for yourself:

Examing the observer allows one to determine if that observer is any more qualified to pass jugement on the sceince than you are. In this case both of you are equally qualified which is to say completely unqualified to pass any meaningful judgement.

Did anyone remember to mention that water vapor is actually the most influential greenhouse gas?

Thanks for posting that. It's very informative, and shows how we can be misled when the whole picture isn't given to us.

The powers that be don't want Joe public to get the whole message, they want us to be frightened enough to pay the taxes that will save the world.
