Re: Science! Science? Science...

Pre-@#$%ing-cisely.

This is your ad hominem attack.

You want to know what the goal of most scientists is? To do science. Most teachers want to teach, most engineers want to engineer, most car...

Re: Science! Science? Science...

You are right, I do not have experience gathering climatic data. I have never said I do. What i do have is experience analyzing data, and analyzing any data is independent of the science. It's...

I don't. It's incredible that you could read what I wrote as an issue with the profit-making, itself. I'm tempted to read your attack here as an intentional misinterpretation of my point. [/quote]...

Exactly what ad-hominem attack have I made? Please let me know so I can either retract it or show reasons why I made it.

Re: Warming

Dysole,

Since you asked, no, I do not rank it as the most important problem we face, and in no way do i believe we need to remake our economy to solve what I see as a low priority problem. I...

Re: Warming

Interesting question - first, if you go back to my first post (http://www.heroscapers.com/community/showpost.php?p=985477&postcount=251) on the subject, I said that half the warming we've seen since...

Re: Science! Science? Science...

In each of these cases, I would argue that the press releases increased the scrutiny of these "discoveries". Each was debunked fairly quickly.


If you want to go back further, I recall that in...

Re: Science! Science? Science...

Whether the research has a press release or not, it still has to pass a peer review. I'll tell you what would make a real splash, research that convincingly refutes that global climate change is...

For the most part, I trust scientists. What I don't trust is Science by Press Release. I discount almost all press releases as being biased by the scientist wanting to make a splash or by news...

What do most scientists think? I'll admit that it comes down to how you ask the question. If you asked a group of scientists the question, "Is man or nature responsible for global warming?" A...

Re: Science! Science? Science...

The problem is that no scientists are saying it, politicians are. The IPCC even says there is no evidence. Their specific claim is that attribution to CO2 of weather pattern changes is low. in...

I am responding to several posts here, and I'm glad that the topic is back to the philosophical discussion of how to properly use science to guide decisions. I truly am!

Getting back to the topic - Science isn't exact. Science is messy. Science is often wrong and we should never expect it not to be! Anyone telling you otherwise is selling something. It's up to you...

Re: Science! Science? Science...

That all depends on the cost of those precautions. And independent of AGW it's a good idea not to build a house along the gulf coast. Nor is it a good idea to build in a flood plain. Unfortunately,...

Re: Huh

Because according to the catastrophic AGW theory, man-made CO2 has only been in high enough concentrations to change our climate since around the 70s. If the sea level rise from 1900 until now is...

Re: Science! Science? Science...

No one is saying it isn't getting warmer - ok, the nuts are - but no one else. The question is whether it's 100% caused by CO2. It's not. It's probably at most half caused by CO2, and that...
