    Are they undercover Chinese agents? When the USA is weakened by ignorance of science and anti-science campaigning, the main beneficiary is China.

    You can still do great science over there. You still have the people and you still have the facilities. Don`t flush it all away. Humanity needs it.

    That`s not what he said and he isn`t a minister. He`s not in any position of power other than being one MP for an irrelevant political party.

    You`re right about him being a twat, though. Thankfully a powerless one.

    Everyone misspeaks from time to time or says something silly, but the Democrats as a whole are not anti-science or ignore science they don`t like and run away from it.

    Running away from science they don`t like has been a GOP policy since the mid 1980s. It has its roots in creationism, and has now spread to climate science and abortion.

    Technology sucks in one reason only ...we are virtually on the brink of not being able to change the world with a simple revolt or coup, the people in power now most assuredly now have the technology to remain in power for as long as human technology carries us, an not all of them are responsible with it.

    fly in the ointment is all, I much appreciate the standards of living provided and the intricacies of the reality we call existence.

    It would, but solar activity does not currently correlate with the recent increase in temperatures we`re having. Solar activity is pretty much stable, and the only thing that can account for the current warming is increased CO2.

    Totally agree. What`s alarming is the RATE of recent climate change. The heating/cooling that used to take place over 100`s of thousands/millions of years, is now (apparently, according to cutting-edge science) taking place over decades.

    @zazuch "Not that i agree but i have my doubts about human caused climate change. The planet is getting hotter no doubt about that. But its been way hotter and way colder with out humans even existing." ... it always cracks me up when someone trots this out by way of denial of made-made climate change. Try this little conundrum ...
    Q: How do we know the climate has been so much hotter and colder in the past?
    A: Thanks to extensive climate research.
    Q: who did this research?
    A: the very same people who are trying to warn of man-made climate change.

    If you don`t believe their conclusions, why are you trying to use their *other* conclusions to argue against them.

    I`m sorry davy I chuckled a bit when I heard that. Now this is funny, people just don`t realize that, one solar activity does affect the earth flares are a big thing both magnetically and heat related, and if you dont think magnetism pulls into the climate then your just dead wrong. Two the earth is not having random spastic climate changes it has been following its normal cycle the seasons aren`t the only bases of the temperature, every couple of years it follows a pattern. Now you can say whatever bs about cuttin edge science you think is backing up your answer but frankly i can pull posts from scientific studies and journals just as easy as you. Not even half of what was said above was so drastically wrong or off point that it needed to be pointed out, obviously a politician isn`t going to have a great understanding of how certain things work, senators and congressman do what they are supposed to do follow what they know, and listen to the people.

    Okay, I`ll grant you Akin is an idiot, but as to the global warming skeptics, I`m on their side. Even if global warming is happening (possibly), and it`s being caused by people (almost certainly not), we could spend $100 trillion dollars trying to stop it, and it wouldn`t lower the temperature more than a couple tenths of a degree in a century.

    Did you know that Carbon Dioxide is good for plants? Yes, I did. As evidence, I point to the Cretaceous period where Co2 levels were 6 times the pre-industrial era and plant life blossomed.

    That said, I don`t care about any of this. I don`t care about defending them. I really don`t care about the mofos that consume themselves with bringing these bozos down.

    The scientific global warming nexus is this. Studies have shown (and you asked me not to post links mind you because studies have ALREADY SHOWN THIS and my high school science class also taught it...not the teacher, the book) that higher amounts of c02 in the atmosphere traps radiation, which means more heat. Graphs of both heat averages and co2 in the air have been doing nothing but going up dramatically since the industrial revolution. That, and many glaciers are starting to melt away and the sea levels are also rising.

    So lets see..rising sea level, rising co2 level, rising temperatures, receding glaciers, and basic knowledge of how co2 affects the atmosphere.

    It`s not a lot to wrap your brains around people open your eyes!

    OK let`s hear it genius. Mr. Mensa. Give us your background on climate science and explain how the industrial revolution has had no impact on the climate. It`s always republicans who act like they understand the science but reject the conclusions. You`re the self proclaimed genius I can`t wait to hear the logic.

    Yes, they are politicians, politicians who have got themselves onto a committee to decide natioal science policy. And they don`t see absolute ignorance as a problem. One wants to cut down the rainforests to reduce greenhouse gas, another shrugs that he doesn`t know the effects of carbon dioxide on humans (hint; find the feck out or shut the feck up.)

    Still, I guess smug ignorance is no bar to office.

    @HA: Dumb phrases to be sure. However, Biden isn`t on some human physiology panel, Al Gore isn`t on some ecology panel (although he may have been on a climate one in the past I don`t know for sure), and Obama`s was just a gaffe, he would have realized his mistake (hopefully) almost immediately after saying it. These people are in charge of science policy and don`t even have a grade school understanding of science.

    Also, I`m pretty sure the only place in the world that outright disagrees with AGW is the US. Keep that head in the sand, maybe things will just get better on their own.

    @patchgrabber: Fair enough; I agree that it`s a shame for some of these people to be in a position to determine policies that could potentially restrict scientific progress.

    However, the people I`ve mentioned are in `positions of power`. I see an idiot in a position to affect legislation to be as detrimental as an idiot in position to affect scientific policy (hence my quotes).

    As for AGW - I think you`ll find opposition to be few and far between. I don`t know of a single respected panel that has argued against it.

    The only time Obama had his opinion affected by science was when he rejected the FDA`s recommendation that RU-486 is safe and should be sold over the counter. I wish he would have allowed it, then we could watched republican heads explode nationwide.

    @HA: Agreed, they are in positions of power and thus able to assign politicians to these panels (I think, not exactly sure how your system works there), but every president has their idiot moments, like GWB, Clinton, every one of them. The problem is that no matter who you choose you`re likely going to get somewhat of an idiot. So it`s not the lesser of two evils, it`s the evil of two lessers. There`s not many people with science degrees in politics iirc, but you can at least get those on a panel who display a basic understanding of the material they`re required to preside over. I`d suggest mandatory testing for panel nominees.

    @patchgrabber: So it`s not the lesser of two evils, it`s the evil of two lessers.Nice quote! - I may have to steal that at some point.

    I`d suggest mandatory testing for panel nominees.To be honest, I`d suggest not allowing politicians to be part of the committee. To me, it would make sense to allow scientists to oversee a science committee...

    That`s okay. At least they`re smart enough to believe that "all men are created equal" only means rich white heterosexual males. They`re Neanderthals.

    Climate-change deniers: you are very dumb and I don`t like you very much.
    Climate change alarmists: you are very dangerous, and I hate your f***ing guts.

    OK let`s hear it genius. Mr. Mensa.
    Please don`t insult me like that. I quit Mensa years ago because they put on a so-called "scientific colloquium" on global warming where every single panelist was a global warming alarmist. The panel included such luminaries of hucksterism as Heidi Cullen and Robert Hanson, but not one single dissenting voice. When I called the central office to complain that this left-handed circle jerk was in no way a "scientific" event, and that it was a blatant violation of Mensa`s corporate charter to take an official position on a controversial political issue, they told me if I didn`t like it, I could put on my own event. I asked if they would provide the same financial support as this event and advertise it as an official Mensa colloquium, they said no. I said they could take my membership card, fold it 5 times, and take turns shoving it up their @$$es.

    madest, I guess the only way to make a point with you it to hit you over your pointy little head with it. Climate change hucksters can`t stand up to honest debate. They have taken over academia and run out all the skeptics. They have taken over the journals and refuse to publish anything that disproves their so-called theories. Heidi Cullen even called for revoking the credentials of meteorologists who don`t bow at the altar of global warming. It`s "settled science" for no other reason than the alarmists say so.

    They`re doing this because all the prescriptions for dealing with global warming are in perfect alignment with the agenda of international socialism. Once they control the production, distribution, and use of all energy, they control the world. In their supreme arrogance, they believe they can run our lives better than we can.

    But you won`t learn the truth sitting around waiting for some anonymous poster on a message board to spoon feed it to you.

    Ollie. Why do you tie observable scientific reality with political stance? They`re professional scientists, and >95% of climatologists concur that climate change is real, and that is has at least in part to do with human-induced change. What has this got to do with "the agenda of international socialism"? Seriously man, take off the tin-foil hat.

    This idea that any scientist who opposes the scientific consensus of AGW is summarily silenced by his peers, is exactly the same bullcum that that wanker Ben Stein was spouting when he made that "Expelled:No Intelligence Allowed" festering cumbucket of a documentary movie.

    In other words, spreading the lie that there`s a major debate going on in the scientific community over major matters of mainstream science. In Ben Stein`s case, he posited that evolution was a lie, and that intelligent design/Christian Creationism (same thing) was the truth. He proposed that every scientist who opposed evolution was silenced, ostracised from the scientific community, not allowed to publish. Ollie, I know you`re smarter than that (you`re not dull enough to deny evolution, if I remember your posts on the subject). Do you realise, then, how close you sound to him when it comes to matters of climatology? There is no meaningful debate. There is scientific consensus on the matter, overwhelmingly. To contest that there`s some kind of serious debate going on in the scientific community on whether climate change is happening, and in part man-made is a lie. Just as there`s no serious debate on the integrity of Evolution as an observable scientific reality. It`s moonbattery.

    Ollie, your right-wing politics cloud your every thought. Observable scientific reality is apolitical.

    Either the sky is blue or it isn`t. Doesn`t matter whether it comes from a "Libtard" (as you like to say) or someone else. It`s f*cking blue.

    OO, I challenged you to dazzle me with your IQ because I doubt your claims of intelligence. You seem to think that knowing someone named Heidi Cullen or Robert Hanson would impress me but they do not. My question was specific and your answer was a dodge. You`re no Einstein. You think we born yesterday? I`ve gotten to read a couple years of your BS and I know that you`re trying to con us. Answer the question. Prove me wrong and I`ll fund your colloquy. The only climate change skeptics are republican and none of them are climate scientists.

    davymid and madest, you both know there is nothing I can say that would dissuade you from your opinions. To you the the issue is as settled as a slab of well-cured concrete (and just as mixed up, I might add).

    The Spanish Inquisition enjoyed a much higher level of "consensus" than does the global warming establishment. Does that make them that much more right in their thinking? The only difference is the global warming Nazis can`t torture "heretics" and burn them at the stake (much as, I`m sure, they would dearly love to).

    You have already proven by your remarks that your minds are completely closed to even considering any ideas that might upset your orthodoxy, so I`ll leave you to it. Go ahead and believe whatever you want. I honestly don`t give a dry fap what you think. You`re not that important to me.

    OldOllie, You`re no genius. You`re not a part of any ultimate IQ think tank. This guy is a genius. He and others like him have the intelligence to actually think though a problem. Something you`ve proven yourself incapable of.

    Oh, wow, your genius guy actually invented a movable parabolic mirror? Quick! Call the patent office!

    Oops, sorry, but I think Sir Isaac Newton beat him to it.

    Oh, and in case you haven`t figured it out yet, I`m not here to perform for you, dickwad.

    A New Study Shows Conservatives Ignore Facts More Than Liberals
    That`s only true if liberals get to define what is a "fact." I hate to break this to you, sparky, but disagreeing with liberal opinions is not the same as "ignoring facts."

    BTW, your guy`s ideas aren`t new at all. Casting parabolic mirrors by rotating molten glass as it cools is very old. I learned about the technique 20 years ago, and it was well known then.

    http://tinyurl.com/chau7uf

    Regarding space-based mirrors, that idea was published by Isaac Asimov in 1941.

    Also, the accelerating expansion of the Universe was predicted 20 years ago, but the guy who predicted it couldn`t get his work published, because he wasn`t a member of "the club."

    You have no opinion that`s a derivative of genius thought. That`s been my point all along. You might think you`re fooling people with that society nonsense but I don`t think you understand the most basic of scientific method. You are a bonehead, you`ve always been a bonehead. Welcome to the real world dummy.

    Why do you have to be such a sore-ass anyway? Didn`t mommy`s boyfriends use lube when they boned you in the butt?
