    Clever. When even climate scientists are starting to admit they have overstated the effect of co2....

    Even though, mechanical engineers could disprove the hypothesis. Chemical engineers as well.

    Shit... Grade 10 science class teaches the information that can demonstrate the hypothesis is best case overstated.

    But, then again, I've read that 3/4 of high school grads can't read more than an 8th grade level, and worse in math.

    Makes it easy to buy a scam when you've been trained into mediocrity.

    You're just amazing on this issue......amazingly full of shit. Just in the last two issues, Scientific American has run articles on the extraordinary pace of warming been seen in the Arctic----which OUGHT to concern YOU, as a Canadian-----and then, in the most recent issue, a whole series of articles on how warming is impacting the spread of infectious diseases.....

    Gee......maybe you should read them......
    Thanks from Friday13

    Let me guess. You teach sciency stuff at Billybob's Tire, Girdle and Bible College store, right?

    Another series of false claims. And they keep coming.

    Do you know the difference between objective evidence and hypothesis?

    Objective evidence: all other variables being equal, a volume of air with more co2 will "capture" more energy than a volume of air with less co2.

    Beyond that is hypothesis, and treating correlation as causation.


    ------

    And that's before we even start the discussion about the numbers times climate scientists have been caught manipulating data to outright fabricating entire studies.

    Wrong.

    See how useless just stating something as fact is?

    I know, I'm just an engineer, not a scientist.

    You want people to buy into climate change? Just tell them it's the sun trying to take their guns away.

    Climates change, that's been well known. A carbon tax ain't going to change that.
