It's almost certain that some scientists are being paid to lie about the climate. Who's funding this conspiracy? Well, depending on which side is lying, it's either big oil or hippies. Which do you think is more likely?

Now, now, you know that type of statement is deserving of a link or three with pertinent comments quoted forward to support you contention.

Point of clarification, actually it was rats and the fleas riding on the rats backs the brought the plague and the famine was due to crop collapse caused by microbes destroying the crops. Not saying there weren't a few years where crops had a rough time due to temperature but there were other factors at play during this period that need to be mentioned at the same time. And yes, I'll take warm and wet over frozen, wet or dry. Got no Eskimo in me and I'm not a big fan of whale blubber.

I'll stick to the mild climate belts.

I know you will not bother to read it based on source alone.

So enjoy living in your fantasy world in which big oil does not have a stake in funding anti-climate change research.

"it's either big oil or hippies"

No, not hippies, big govt Socialist types.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 31, 2012 10:52:47 AM PST
And the liberal private education system, and the evil private foundation system, plus some industry money.

Government, education institutions, foundations, industry, advocacy groups...allll coming together to put on a hoax that involves over 90% of the scientific community.

Because its always the most convuluted answer that is the right one. One main industry funding the 5% of anti research is just to simplistic to be true.

Let's see what I posted:

"Now, now, you know that type of statement is deserving of a link or three with pertinent comments quoted forward to support you contention."

You didn't single out any pertinent information as you post a thirty-five page opinion piece.

"So enjoy living in your fantasy world in which big oil does not have a stake in funding anti-climate change research."

I can see you've not been reading anything of what I've been posting. (chuckle, chuckle)

Opinion pieces usually are not footnoted. Try again.

It's your obligation to section out pertinent information, not just drop a thirty-five page opinion piece on everybody in the form of a simple link. As to footnoted opinion pieces, if you include opinion pieces in your opinion piece, all you're doing is quoting forward someone else's opinion and then making note of where the opinion came from.

There's factual information and then there's parading opinion around as if fact when it's nothing but opinion based on conjecture.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 31, 2012 11:46:54 AM PST
193 footnotes.

Once again opinion pieces are not footnoted, reports are.

This is a 35 page REPORT. As I said I expected you to ignore it just please understand what you are ignoring.

Do you take time to read documentation? I've taken the time and I enjoy pointing out how opinion is being offered as fact. You really do need to explore documentation. It's entertaining.

"...please understand what you are ignoring."

This is a forum, not a political science/environmental/hate Rightwing, reeducation camp.

If the article has a point to make that supports your contention, cite the paragraph in the linked material just as you expect me to do, and I do, when I post linked information. I don't just throw links on a page and expect you to intuitively know what section I'm referencing nor do I expect you in the entirety, read thirty-five pages of report material or listen to an hour and a half of a youtube clip. In the least, doing so is not being realistic.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 31, 2012 11:58:00 AM PST
All 35 pages.

Not going happen. Either you're going be pithy, or your linked material is going be intentionally ignored as propaganda.

Extensively footnoted with reference that are verifiable.

"Because its always the most convuluted answer that is the right one. "

It's not convoluted at all. Regulating based on the environment is the easiest way to control what everyone does in their daily lives.

You do realize that cattle are not wild animals? They don't migrate like wildebeest. They are owned by ranchers who move them when and where they want.
