It would be more correct to say that I *might* have forgotten more about the topic than you presently know.

You also might have forgotten that declaring yourself a guru on climate change and above us mere mortals is not a convincing argument for the masses. The fact is, the masses remain unconvinced, and high-horse arogance won't help convince us either...

And yet, somehow, you remain convinced by arguments saying 'Oh, this is just caused by X!, or Y,! or Z!" without being cognizant of the data the shoots holes in such 'theories'. Somehow, this makes me the arrogant one.
Apparently, spending years becoming educated in math and science rather than believing what Bob the Angry Blogger believes is now considered 'high horse arrogance'. Gotcha.

Yes, you have it exactly, well 99% of it. What you miss is the 1% that enables you to put over all that wonderful education and knowledge in a form that will persuade 'Bob the Angry Blogger' that you are right and he is wrong. It's rather sad really...

You can't convince "Bob the Angry Blogger" that he's wrong. By the time he's on the web yelling his opinion to all and sundry, his mind is already made up.

Some claim to be highly educated and read propaganda; others just guess the implications.

Seems to me that you're assuming that the authorities are benign and have your best interest at heart.

So when the politicians decided to bomb the **** out of Afghanistan and Iraq they did so because they were "obviously jumping on the bandwagon of public interest". Obviously they were so concerned about the global dangers of the CO2 emisions that the Afghan and Iraqi villages were manufacturing that they decided to kill them to avert a global catastrophe.

Oh, I forget - it was the "mad arabs that hate our freedoms" with lethal box cutters that they were after - in the public interest, of course!

Several hundred of billions of dollars of tax payers money is small change when it comes to protecting the public from mythical, manufactured dangers - so long as the public pays through the nose for this protection!

But, you didn't answer the question. Look at it this way, I don't care what you believe (you can believe that the moon is made of white cheese, pamela anderson's tits are gods gift to earth, or whatever else).

I would only be interested in you believing something that was not true if there was a benefit to me from it.

So why would there be an organized campaign to make you believe something that is not true?

Theres a quote by Voltaire:
"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities"
If you're 'unconvinced by either camp', that's because they've managed to confuse you. If tomorrow you were to burn all the oil in Saudi, it would make ZERO difference to global temperature.

If you could trap all the heat/cosmic energy that falls on the saudi desert alone every day it would probably be more then the sum total of mans total energy output. Yet, each night it gets close to freezing in the desert. How comes all that heat/energy doesn't cause global warming? It's a collosal amount of energy that falling day and night, all the year round - and has been falling continuously for billions of years.

The energy from the sun is several orders of magnitude greater then any energy that man can ever generate - it is responsible for powering all life on earth.
Get a life no one is perfect. They may have been mistakes made in the past but that is no reason why we can't try and change things for the future. Global Warming is a problem that needs to be tackled now and just because there are other errors doesn't mean global warming is one of them. To deny global warming is to sign up to the american or chinese economic views and judging by your rants this is something you wouldn't want to do.

So you've posted a couple of news articles showing footage of undersea thermal activity. This is uncontroversial, we all know that volcanoes and vents exist underwater.

But your claim was that this natural activity had a greater impact than human activity (you mentioned power stations). The two links do nothing to bolster your assertion.

Climategate, CO2 & Global warming

Everyone aware ?

This story about global warming due to CO2 was all fake, just a huge scam. Actually the planet is not getting warmer, and if it does, it can not be caused by CO2.

CO2 would result from warming, not cause it.

Al Gore, your travels with private jet around the globe, giving your 200'000.00 dollars conferences with no questions allowed from the audience, are over

Those not yet aware : Just google around "Climategate" and "Global warming".

I did, and it's still happening, the climategate site is a joke and contains more disinformation, misquotations and rhetoric it's hard to believe anyone can take it seriously.

Try skeptical science and see every point rebuked.

I guess internet access in Lausanne must be running at about 1 bit per day.

Do you have some real evidence to support your position?
(random websites don't count)

Perhaps, an independent, peer-reviewed scientific paper that's been published in a reputable science publication.

Haven't you heard? All those pesky scientists peer-reviewing one-another aren't reliable anymore because they're all "in on it". People would rather listen to their gut, that's where objective truth comes from.

Re: Global Warming - what's behind it?

Just check out conference held at CERN last summer :

http://howcanpeoplebesostupid.com/?p=1647

This is just one example among others.

A very interesting and FACTUAL documentary was shown on ARTE on April second (I recommend for those who have not seen the film, to get the DVD) :

http://www.thecloudmystery.com

And check out Al Gore running away like a coward, refusing to answer questions :



Finally, Al Gore losing his nerves (OK, this is just a joke) :

http://howcanpeoplebesostupid.com/?p=1839

More events to come, including in Switzerland...
