This is tiresome. This constitutes the logical fallicy 'argumentum ad hominem', that the argument is against the person who issues the argument not the facts. Anthropogenic climate change is science. It has been making testable predictions about the impact of human activity on the climate for several decades. It is mainstream science taught throughout the world as such.
Even if you do not agree that the conclusions are merited from the data (as I believe rockdoc123 does), to try to pretend it is not a science is to shove your head in the sand.
Sorry to tire you. I suggest parsing my words more closely.
It's the followers of GW that make it a religion, not whatever underlying science supports it.
I was in science for many years.
Funny thing is, in all my time there, at all the lectures and seminars and thesis defenses, I never heard some simpleton who couldn't diagram the structure of CO2 scream at somebody else, "you're a denier!"
It took Global Warming to do that.
Global Warming is a religion not because of the 0.0001% of its adherents that are rational, science based thinkers.
Global Warming is a religion because of the 99.9999% of its adherents who are scientific morons who base their hysteria on information that they don't understand and don't have the skills to analyze.
Global Warming is a religion.
Proof is being offered everyday.
I quote a study that says sun spot activity is predicted to decrease, causing global cooling over the next 2 decades and potentially issuing in a new mini ice age.
The response I get?
"You are tiresome, Infidel."
Massive Human Dieoff <b>must</b> occur as a result of Peak Oil. Many more than half will die. It will occur everywhere, including where <b>you</b> live. If you fail to recognize this, then your odds of living move toward the "going to die" group.
