Good link Wilbeer. That's really straightforward and they say it like it is. It would be fun the see what Fox News would dream up! I was amazed at that show really. There's hope!

They did a good job with natural variability. Sure it can be an influence, but CO2 adds another factor on top that influence no matter what.

Are you leaning towards conversion Norton? On purely ideological grounds, great.

Yes Base already answered your question upthread. Now how about geomagnetism, you probably have all current knowledge memorized and could save me the time of investigation.

well Rick, I did not know that my fellow Republicans are supporting global warming thing

I mean that poll of Republicans tells me I may be wrong

up to now I was a denier because it got cold here this winter, even had some snow

but I gotta go with my Repub party, and they seem to be changing, even supporting carbon taxes

ya know?

WELL, if the Republicans are supporting the climate change stuff, then I will have to oppose them


There's some comedy! Of course Republicans will have to change - people can be fooled for only so long. Does that make the acceptance of anthropomorphic climate change political? No. It shows how real the issue is. The acceptance of it at least, is beyond politics. Politics will handle what to do about it.

well Norton- i won't bother to try to convince you that the grand old party is filled with hacks that did/do almost as a good of a job of ignoring reality and driving this country into the dirt as the current hacks occupying the majority of the senate and all the executive, whose leadership is from Chicago, with all that implies. Oh well, close but no cigar.

Edit- get me out of this loony bin, will a convert please step forward

A little beyond H.S. Read and identified with the famous Roper Quote about climbers "by and large maladjusted, antisocial, sex starved ,(ticked off the first three by age 16) college dropouts" Number 4 check, age 19.

I think that Roper quote was a joke Dick... but nice job living up to it anyhow.

Most climbers I know are well adjusted, quite social, get plenty of sex, and well educated. But clearly there are some dicks out there who fall short.

well rick,

you are still young enough to get some more education, right?

I mean, never too late for learning critical thinking, logic, basic stuff like that, etc

what do they say, more education usually means more income over a lifetime?

but hey, not everyone is cut out for it....

plenty of jobs out there don't require much education to do

common sense goes a long way, right?

Rick were you born on third base and think you hit a triple? I ask that because those who inherit wealth without working for it tend to be SELFISH.

Adam Smith (founder of capitalism) also believed an integral part of capitalism was that those who became successful could pass on the fruits of their labor to their offspring---but not so much could be passed on that the offspring forgot the value of labor...

Climate Change is happening around us in different localities everyday--from record snow in New York today to record snow in the midwest in early May etc etc ---the snow doesn't mean the earth is not warming--It does mean that the climate is changing
