The link (and also link to the site in the signature - which would appear on every post) was taken out because I don't want this site to be a place where every nutter-on-the-bus can gain some credence for their own crack-pot theories. CoolAntarctica is a popular and well respected site on the web, so a link from here means that if I open the doors, they'll all start flooding in to try and gain some reflected glory.
It was something to do with WW2 naval battles being the cause of global warming - I got bored and stopped reading.
I am currently a science teacher, previously I was a research scientist, it matters to me that the principles of science are upheld. I have a particular distaste for pseudo-science by those who just don't understand how it all works. Having an idea or "theory" alone counts for little.
It reminds me of a sketch in Monty Python;
"I have a theory (ahem). My theory is about dinosaurs. They were thin at one end, fat in the middle and thin at the other end" (or words to that effect).
To the charlatans - Get your own website - don't piggy-back off this one, I work very hard at I and have done for several years now. I moderate this forum quite closely and have an open - but critical - mind. I don't give webspace, and especially links to just anything!
