Ah. pardon me.


btw, much as you'd like it to be, I am not a devotee or frequent visitor to sites like Skeptical Science. The fact that I often state things that are in agreement with their positions has more to do with the obvious merits of the AGW case that you are struggling against.

I believe that considering you are about the only one on the pro and I mean hardcore pro the agw that actually posts on other threads on here . The majority of the rest seem to just be members here for the sole purpose of posting on these type of threads.

Re: Ocean acidifcation .

Thanks for dropping by. It's tamped down the heat for a bit, like when the teacher crosses the threshold of an unruly home-room.

On the other hand, Rich is baaaack! and historically, his usual comments on this topic have had all the nuance, appropriateness and informational content of a loud f4rt at a funeral service. So we shall see...

So about or between all the falsehoods, strawmen, irrelevances, ad hominems, etc....there is a perspective that's trying to be conveyed to the receiver to help the receiver. It could be considered that the jabs are intended to rile the audiences' hormones to invoke a different thought stream--these techniques are in fact part of ordinary every day effective communication. Same with the bedazzlements, diversions, distractions.
You're providing some useful perspective, thanks. But with respect, i don't think that really applies as much here.

Obvious reason first: why would someone head to a cruising forum for meaningful discussion on climate change?

From my long involvement ( ) I see the following motivations here:
  • chatty people looking to continue their favourite bar conversation online
  • knights of either realm engaging the enemy wherever they find them
  • people enjoying the anticipation and endorphin rush of a sustained debate
  • sh!t-disturbers and trolls
  • bored cruisers (... seem to be a lot on CF ) seeking diversion and entertainment
Usually these are in some combination.

I see relatively few people with a genuine intent to learn from or to 'better' the others. And those few soon realize that you can't teach a pig to sing, and they usually move on.

So, truly effective communication here might actually run counter to many people's reasons for participating...

If they met the criteria, they would have been included. They did not; they were not included. Period.

And that criteria was a definite agreement with the intergovernmental panel on climate change . A purely political body .

I have not said that. You are putting words in my mouth.

I have said the science supporting AGW is overwhelming. I have said that no academy of sciences disputes the conclusions of the IPCC. I have said that nearly 200 of those academies have policy statements support the conclusions of the IPCC

Yes I am disputing that.

You are willfully misrepresenting what I say.

Climate science is based on physics.

Abstract: In this paper, we have used several basic atmospheric–physics models to show that additional carbon dioxide will warm the surface of Earth. We also show that observed solar variations cannot account for observed global temperature increase.

Bingo....
Sounds like the Chinese Internet where only officially sanctioned "Science" and "News" is allowed to be presented. When you make the rules of the game...you control the outcome, which is exactly what the Man Made Global Warming Industrial Hoax Complex is attempting to do. Sorry Lake...when the truth is on your side yo don't need to suppress the other side's argument.

Jack save us all a lot of trouble and just admit it you did link to the cook study in threads past . We both know it . So just admit it .we won't think less of you .

I'm pretty sure Jack has not deliberately misused that '97%'; nobody here (besides Gord) can touch JD for the quality and appropriateness of the data he puts up. I don't know where he gets the patience.

I've thrown out the 97% number on occasion, and admittedly not fully qualifying the usage. But so far it's the only formal published metric we have for assessing the size of consensus, and an honest understanding of its methodology shows that it's not a dishonest method for making this assessment.

The real crime is zealous overuse without qualifications, and giving it more weight than it deserves. This is a user fault, and not that of the survey itself. It does not mean that this survey was intentionally distorted or faked, or that there is a serious flaw in the methodology. Of course, there is nothing of comparable or better quality to show that the consensus is other than 97%; the arguments against there being such a big consensus are mainly intense speculation and non-scientific hypothesizing about groupthink, confirmation bias and whatnot.

Gord provided some counterpoint, and a historical reminder that not having a known 97% agreement rate has no strong bearing on the validity of a particular hypothesis, but as I've already found out, some are simply not ready to let go of this shiny thing just yet.


(If every instance here of careless usage or hyperbole were similarly prosecuted as this 97% thing...whew. Be careful what you ask for.)

I've always known that Spencer agrees with more of the mainstream positions than people like to pigeonhole him with. This will help clarify.
Specifically on this thread we have had the following arguments which Spencer and others would say are giving the skeptics a bad name because they ignore basic physics.

1. My favorite.. co2 can't matter because it is only .04% if the atmosphere.

2. More CO2 doesn't matter because it is already saturated in the atmosphere.

3. Co2 doesn't matter because water vapor absorbs more.

4. Co2 levels are not rising.

5. The rapid increase in co2 isn't due to fossil fuels.

6. It is all the sun... Of course that where all the energy in the atmosphere comes.

These arguments have all been raised on this thread. They are all disputed in the science and specifically denied by Spencer and others in the skeptic community.

Please provide proof of that assertion .

The planets greening says otherwise.

And no that's my opinion will not be an acceptable reply.
You apparently didn't read Spencer's post about it, or do you disagree on his statement?
