Indeed. Being in favour of things like publicly-funded healthcare, progressive taxation and basic workers' rights makes me a communist.
What does this statement have to do with that statement, below? Watermelons come in pink, too, you know...

The IPA is a far-right-wing organisation devoted to extreme free-market and Libertarian positions. Do not expect it to advocate anything that doesn't promote further elevation of the rich, greedy and powerful, and usurping the public good for private benefit.

A quick sampling of the papers you posted showed most to have long been refuted or failed peer review in the first place.
Yet, you have still been unwilling or unable to provide proof of this... Just your "claim."

I called the IPA a far-right-wing Libertarian organisation, and listed a few things that the average person probably wouldn't consider particularly "socialist", let alone "communist". Yet the IPA considers them to be examples of the nanny state in action.

Apparently that makes me a "watermelon".

Plenty of proof if you spend five minutes with google. Heck, the site you linked to even conveniently gives a whole bunch of bad reasons why you should ignore them.

I didn't ask for this laziness. I spent 5 minutes with Google, and found my sources that apparently aren't good enough for you... You can't even be bothered to do a search yourself...

Then perhaps you should spend another 30 minutes finding out why they are 99% rubbish. I am well aware of your list, it is being pushed left right and centre by climate change deniers - I believe it was already discussed on here about 20 pages back (depending on your personal page length - apologies if I'm mixing threads or even forums but I'm too tired of your constant mindless deniel to look it up).

Then agaoin as your mind is clearly closed to any possibility of climate change being right, don't bother.

If you think supporting things like publicly-funded education, progressive taxation and basic workers' rights makes someone a communist, then your political compass is so out of whack it's not even worth trying to have a discussion.

You should spend five minutes with google, your sources, and the word "refuted".

Can't win the environmental debate, so now you're on politics...

Again, I don't need to spend time with Google- I've done that already. You are making the claim that these are rubbish, so you need to spend some time getting to know Google.

Again, my "rubbish" sources are the only ones being provided. Where's yours?

You still haven't even addressed your claim regarding the video about the California wind farm, but you expect me to do your research for you. Its laughable, sorry.

No, you haven't, because if you had you'd know that your sources were rubbish.

Spend some time on sceptical science. They conveniently list all the popular denialists, the "arguments" they use all the time, and why they're wrong. Complete with links to the relevant research and evidence.

Again, says you. Again, no independent proof. You're gonna keep dodging, and I'm gonna keep pointing out that you're not answering the question. Its "skeptical," by the way.

A spade is a spade... And you're a watermelon that uses your environmental bias to support your anti-capitalist views.

Who's "they"? Where's your evidence? I've posted links, you've posted nothing... You categorically denied 1100+ sources by "glancing" at them, and saying that there's a list of scientists that have been disproved as "climate heretics" (proving my point about the Environmental Movement being a religion) on some website you peruse (without establishing that website is credible, btw), disregarding what they're actually saying.

I've never said any scientific theory is "proven". Quite the opposite, in fact.

There is, however, a vast consensus due to overwhelming evidence that climate change is happening and that human activity - particularly the release of CO2 - is a major factor.
