    I like that you're trying to revive the forum and all, but make sure you're following the rules

    - When posting a news article, remember to quote the text and provide the source link so that others may be able to reference it. If you can embed a video as well if one is present, please do.

    - Do not continue to add threads on the same subject either. Look to see if something else has already been posted that is related.

    Quote the text and try not to post half a dozen new threads on generally the same topic.

    I honestly hopped on, hit find new posts, and thought you were some sort of bot for thinkprogress.org

    I was trying to avoid being a rule stickler, but even putting your opinion would stimulate more discussion

    Anyone who denies climate change is quite possibly an idiot. Or just uninformed.

    No one ever denied "climate change." Global warming was shown to be a sham, because we are heading for an ice age. We are right now in an interglacial period which typically last 10k-12k years, and it's been 12k. If any "climate change" is denied it's man made climate change, but shitlibs changed the goal posts, so they can say they were right all along.

    How exactly was global warming shown to be a sham? Where is this proof of an ice age?

    As scientists find out new information, it can change their hypothesis. That's how science works, it's not "changing the goal posts".

    97% of the scientific community agrees. Do you know more than they do?

    I don't have a dog in this fight, but can you please articulate what exactly it is that "97% of the scientific community agrees" on?

    Oh, sorry, 97% of the scientific community agrees that climate change is real and man made.

    Not to nit pick, but I honestly find the rhetoric of climate change to be counterproductive and overly dramatic. Actually, the quote is: 97% of climate scientists agree that the changes in global climate seen in the last 50 years is largely the result of human activity. It's interesting how that fact gets twisted into all kinds of ideals. Also interesting how if someone questions the effectiveness of a certain public policy they get labelled a "climate denier". That shit reminds me of:

    Appeal to authority is a logical fallacy. Scientists have political and financial reasons to say things, and they get caught smudging the data all the time, or dropping a study if the results don't match their hypothesis. They get trained to do this nowadays. You treat "Science!" like a religion.

    Appeal to authority refers to individuals.

    So you think 97% of the world's scientists are paid off? By who?

    This, like the initial graph you posted, only measures antarctic ice shelf temps, not temps overall. Nice try though.
