darrons- It does make a point. Not a big point….maybe an obvious point but a point is a start.

let me restate my point….....climate science is not basic science. We do not know how to predict climate or weather. As long as it is a question which remains in the realm of science and scientists I am fine with ‘climate change’. When the non-scientists start waving their arms shouting about the droughts…no the flooding….the heat…errr…..make that the cooling and the heating…..ooohhh look at the big storm…more evidence…..I do not think that we have studied the climate system deep enough or for long enough to know what is REALLY going on. Scientists usually wait and see. Enviro-(non scientists)-mentalists want me to give up too much. You want to tax my exhalations !

I wonder how Micheal Mann and Andrew Weaver feel right about now?
Here are two prominent climate change pushers who are finally getting slapped in a court of law.
Why don’t you pull your well educated head out the one book that you are reading from and read about Dr. Tim Ball?

I’ve already shown you are wrong about that.

As long as it is a question which remains in the realm of science and scientists I am fine with ‘climate change’.

This is ironic coming from the person who dismissed James Hansen’s conclusions.

When the non-scientists start waving their arms shouting about the droughts…no the flooding….the heat…errr…..make that the cooling and the heating…..ooohhh look at the big storm…more evidence…..

So only scientists are allowed to discuss climate science? Nice try, but we need to get this discussion out to everyone if we are to make changes.

I do not think that we have studied the climate system deep enough or for long enough to know what is REALLY going on. Scientists usually wait and see. Enviro-(non scientists)-mentalists want me to give up too much. You want to tax my exhalations !

Yet computers models 30 years ago correctly predicted our current climate. Once again, you are wrong, as you have been about everything in this thread. And you end with another straw man argument.

FYI Mann has been a guest on Point of Inquiry. You might want to listen to the episode. The case against him was a clear example of political grandstanding and was thrown out of court.

As for Weaver, I have no idea what you’re talking about. All I can find on him is that he is suing a climate-change-denier for defamation.

The computer models of the IPCC are very good if you tease the data and then refuse to let any one else analyse or even look at the raw data. That is not science….that is conflict resolution !

From Wiki:

As a scientist who had contributed substantially to the preparation of IPCC reports, Mann received a personalized certificate from the IPCC for “contributing to the award of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 to the IPCC”. The certificate features a copy of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize diploma. The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded jointly in 2007 to the IPCC and to Al Gore, and these certificates were issued by the IPCC to coordinating lead authors, lead authors, review editors, Bureau members, staff of the technical support units and staff of the secretariat.

It might help to check your facts a little before posting.

And BTW, his name is spelled “Michael Mann”.

... You want to tax my exhalations !

Considering that you seem to be expelling an excess of hot air, it only seems fair. But I would have to lean to the side of not taxing your personal exhalations, as it might be in conflict with constitutionally protected free speech.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.

And guess who Weaver is suing: Tim Ball. Yes, the same Tim Ball sine dues kept throwing at me and CC showed is a dishonest crackpot.
