TIA BS: Where's the Global Warming (1541* d) RE: BS: Where's the Global Warming 30 Jul 09


From LH on the human influence on climate:

"It will eventually either be confirmed with no remaining doubt..."

No, sorry. It won't. That's the point. There is *always* doubt is science. If there is no doubt, it is by definition, no longer science. We have reached the point where the scientific consensus is overwhelming. As overwhelming as the consensus that cigarettes are bad for you. Yet, as with cigarettes, the moneyed corporate interests are buying air time, and funding...and publicizing the hell out of, the lone (and sometimes loopy) "scientists" that may cast doubt on the consensus. And the people who are addicted buy in. And people without an understanding of science can't discern the hogwash and believe the popular media hype (generated intentionally by the big money), and see it as an actual scientific "debate" instead of a battle between science and the corporate propaganda (happily parroted by politicans and media commentators that they own) intended to preserve their profits - even at the expense of the future of humanity.

Remember, we are still not 100% certain that there is a link between smoking and lung cancer. So, why don't you keep smoking for another 10 years or so, and only quit when we are 100% sure?
