    The Incredible Shrinking Sheep of Scotland - TIME

    Of course there's no such thing as global climate change, so the article can't be right. Wait no, there is such a thing as global climate change, but there's negligible human input into it... no wait, ther is such a thing as global climate change and there is human input, but it happens all the time... wait no, there aren't enough sunspots and we're spewing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere... we have to study this for a long long time, longer than we have...

    No wait we need to wreck our economy and give enormous sums of government becuase someone ran an inaccurate computer model that doesn't match measured observations...

    Don't forget AlGore's 10% "commission" on all expenditures for the "Green Revolution". Called the "climate high priest's tax". :rofl:


    Gotta keep that Tennessee mansion of his powered up with his ten times the amount of the average U.S. family. Then there's his fleet of SUVs, his private air-craft (fixed and rotor winged)!! :eek: And the Tipper apparently couldn't live in the VP's quarters without opening up the fire-place and chimney so's they could burn all that wood, produce all that smoke and C02 and other goodies. Yup, the Gore-man has sure set the bar for the rest of the world to follow, hasn't he!!! :rolleyes:


    Hey, Mabel, keep peddling the bike so we can have enough electricity to read the newspaper tonight. The AlGore has just added another tax!!!


    :rolleyes:

    I haven't encountered any Global Warming deniers, whether temperatures are rising or falling is a matter of measurement. The climate is never static. Currently in spite of rising levels of CO2 (of which the human contribution is <4%) temperatures are falling since 1998.

    Love the lame attampt to avoid the issue of the miniscule contributions of human activities to climate.


    Baa baa glracle sheep.

    That's the beauty of the MMGW argument. It's a point outside the window, unprovable, emotion tugging ponzi scheme. When the weather is wierd, you point out the window. When the data is off, you point outside the window, or mention these shrinking sheep. When all else fails, you say "even if so, isn't the planet worth saving? Afterall, what if you're wrong?". Meanwhile, the gubmit, UN, world body, etc. have just taxed your arse into the ice age, nevermind the MMGW they say is on the way. If this were genuinely about the environment, which is extremely important IMO, then it wouldn't be about taxes, developing nations, and control.

    That and the preponderance of scientific opinion on the part of those who've actually studied the phenomenon. Oh yes, and of course the computer models (my understanding is the Right disagrees with the use of computers now... but they really are much more reliable than the entrails of sacrifices and the like.)

    You guys are increasingly irrelevant. You know you're isolated on the fringe, right?

    I mean you really don't think there are throngs of people who will vote on the assumption that "everything's fine," or throngs of actual scientists who work on climate issues, who actually agree with your point of view on this?

    Do you?

    Really?

    Seriously?

    HAHAHAHAHAHA beautiful, there is no scientific evidence, there are only computer simulations which have been shown to be inaccurate.

    We also see that the planet has cooled over the part 10 years while CO2 level have continued to increase.

    I love the way a scientific illerate like yourself comments on the preponderance of scientific evidence.


    BTW as to computer models, I have used and worked for companies that develop FEA software which is very useful, however the models are only as good as thw assumptions when the model predicts a certain result and observation and measurement show the model is flawed, wrong IOW you change the model.

    This is not the case with the climate alarmist.

    :rolleyes:

    So that's a yes, you really, really think that people just "made up" global warming.

    Suuuuure, Agent 13, I'm a scientific illiterate, and there's no scientific proof, "only models."

    Except for all the proof there is.

    And OH MY GOD IF WE NARROW THE WINDOW TO 10 YEARS nothing's happening. Everything's just fiiiiiine.

    Exactly where do you serve as a climatologist, by the way? Just curious.

    What are you not happy enough with the fringe's ability to self destruct, and need a little extra "oomph?"

    So what proof is there? The declining temps over the past 10 years when human CO2 output has increased?
