Are you smarter than...

...400 international scientists? or the great Global Warming hype. Read it and help me decide which thread title is more fitting.

We can save you time. Look at the author of the article and see which oil company pays him and it should answer your question.

As for the 400 international scientists, try sourcewatch.org. It will clear up your confusion.

It it gets too confusing for you just look at the Tobacco Institute and the Big Tobacco companies of the 1960s-80s as they brought out their International scientists who swore up and down there was no causal link between cigarettes and cancer. That will further clear up your confusion.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

It is not an article, it is a report from 400 scientists and 12 different countries.

The author=U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee

I think you are just trying to add confusion as there is nothing at this site pertinent to this report.

Again YOU are the one confusing the issues. Get back to me when you have something to say pertinent to the issue. Condescending dribble just does not cut it.

Global warming is pure hype just like Global Cooling, the Millennium Bug, Africanized Killer Bees, Fire Ants, The Plague II, West Nile Virus, Killer Asteroids, SARS and Bird Flu.

It will eventually prove itself wrong and/or significantly over hyped and something else will be invented to replace it that will supposedly spell doom for all humanity.

There were only 52 authors/signors to the UN IPCC report on global warming which declared the overwhelming, international "concensus" on anthropogenic globabl warming (AGW). This report of the Senate EPW gives the standing and academic/professional positions of 400 key people in this debate, as well as a brief statement of each one"s judgment and reservations about AGW. Taken as a whole, we now can reveal Al Gore as a lying bastard when he claims the debate is over. Frankly, the debate has just begun; but hang on to your wallets for the impact of the fear-mongering that leads to taxes, regulations from liberals and evironmentalists.

Yep.

Be ready to pay your global warming tax on..everything.

Meanwhile it is a global freezing here in SF.
First time in many years I had an ice on my Stealth windshield.

Global warming, my bottom part.

I for one am glad to know that the issues with the atmosphere and our treatment of the environment around us can all be cured by plastering them with dollar bills. Since they're so much cheaper now and everything...
