Maybe if you COULD find a reliable source, there might be a reason to
listen. Apparently, you COULDN'T, so you used Michael Crichton
instead.

years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)

Please don't put a cell phone next to any part of your body that you are fond of!

Since he put selective words in ALL CAPS, that must make it true.

Interesting- since his view is different from yours, you automatically
assume the difference must be political rather than a sincere difference of
belief. Why is that?

LOL! That paper is worse than bad science, it was
actually a fraud job that ****ed off the National Academy
of Science.

The authors were Arthur B. Robinson who conducts research
on protein chemistry and on nutrition and predictive and
preventive medicine, Robinson's 22-year-old son, Zachary,
and astrophysicists Sallie L. Baliunas and Willie Soon.

These guys were funded by Scaife, and are employed by a
couple of those right-wing nut factories.

Richard Lindzen is one of the few academics with relevant
credentials who disputes global warming.

He also does $2500/day consulting gigs for the oil
industry, and refuses to accept a real-money bets on
the planet's temperature 20 years from now unless
the person on the other side of the bet offers 50:1
odds in Lindzen's favor.

So Lindzen is pretty open about the fact he's whoring
for the oil industry.

http://www.junkscience.com/


JunkScience.com is a website maintained by Steven J. Milloy,
an "adjunct scholar" the Cato Institute and the Competitive
Enterprise Institute - right wing think tanks with long
histories of denying environmental problems at the behest of
the corporations which fund them. Milloy is also a columnist
for FoxNews.com.

Milloy is not even close to a climate scientist in training.

Milloy has received thousands of dollars in payments from the
Phillip Morris company since the early nineties (he shilled
for them, arguing tobacco isn't carcenogenic), and NGOs
controlled by Milloy have received large payments from ExxonMobil.

###

These aren't references; these are paid shills for ExxonMobil.
If you want to talk about science, go to the refereed journals,
read the measurements and the interpretations, and then come
back and explain why the actual climate scientists are wrong.

And don't republish bull****. It's as bad as straight-out
being a liar.

Cheers, Wolf.

No substantive response to the fact that your sources were all
nutcases and industry shills, eh? (:

Better luck next time. Cheers, Wolf.

Thanks man- I really appreciate you showing what you really are. It
wouldn't matter who I quoted or what. Anyone who disagrees with the
politically-orthodox point of view is deemed worthless and therefore
discounted. That's the way most religion operates as well. No wonder
Americans trust neither science nor religion.
