I just saw John Stossel's segment of 20/20 on the global warming debate.
Yes – I said DEBATE.
Not only is there no consensus, those who believe the Earth is warming have no particular standing – of even facts on their side. Gore's movie lecture is an unmitigated fraud, and the IPCC is, as one reputable (because he doesn't support the warming theory) scientist calls it the "inter-governmental panel on climate change." In other wards, not only are they bought and paid for by government entities, but the scientists who oppose the "theory" are not paid by anybody.
In addition, the good guys have been threated – even physically, and one scientist had to sue to get his name removed from the report that bore his name – which he hadn't consented to. The report, that is.
So as far as I'm concerned, the debate IS over. You can believe what you want, just don't bring your nonsense here without some hard evidence, because your opinion is not only not as good as mine, it's baseless.
And if someone does think he has some convincing evidence, in order to present it, I first want to hear what you think will be the benefits of global warming. Fair enough?
Stossel says, "Gimme a break!"
I say, "Put your warming theories where the sun don't shine."
