Re: Global warming poll
What are you trying to say Daniel? First of all you quote a site with a strong anti-globalwarming stance;
"This web site is a project of the Cooler Heads Coalition, a sub-group of the National Consumer Coalition.
The Cooler Heads Coalition formed May 6, 1997 to dispel the myths of global warming by exposing flawed economic, scientific, and risk analysis. Coalition members will also follow the progress of the international Global Climate Change Treaty negotiations."
Then you proceed to correctly point out why the "evidence" there is garbage. You seem to misunderstand what the source you are quoting is all about - they are ANTI global warming - it suits them to pretend it isn't happening. You seem to have assumed the opposite about them.
Then you present incomplete data and try to rubbish it?
I hear the sound of random goose honking too.
The statement I copied above in blue states that in 1997 the decided to "dispel the myths of global warming", in other words, that's when they decided what they want to be true and put the blinkers on.
In the last 9 years much evidence has come to light to show that not only is global warming happening, the indication (and I say this in the very cautious scientific useage of the word) is that increasing CO2 levels due to fossil fuel burning is the cause. However the anti-globalwarming crowd already made their minds up as an act of faith and need no evidence.
I think it's a plot to flood the 2nd hand auto market with gas guzzling SUV's so you can buy them cheaply.
