@An-egg: What happened to your post from last night with the three questions? I logged on early this morning, saw them, and with this snow, an hour's come up in my schedule. I just sat down here, wound up my timer--and it appears you've deleted your post.

That's a pity because I was looking forward to getting into the science with you. If you still have an interest, put them back up, and I'll see if I can answer them for you.

Squrlz: Dr. Spencer doesn't work for Limbaugh or Fox News, nice try at the slander, but you fail once again.

jkfld: Your supposed 'connections', come from the radical left group Think Progress, which has a very bad track record playing fast and loose, making 'connections' with half-truths and tenuous associations. They are a child organization of Center for American Progress (CAP) which is heavily funded by socialist billionaire George Soros.

@Squrlz4: Thanks for accepting! I was shocked at myself when I re-read some of my comments. I didn't remember them being THAT nasty. Far more so than was called for.
I do try to behave myself! This time I slipped up.

A little "faux paw" by me

@davymid: That multi-posting thing happens to you a lot? Must be "ghosts" in your computer...

@Squrlz4: Sorry I was rude, it was late and I got all grumpy. I apologize sincerely.

But you're still wrong... :-p

Are you ever not lying, CrakrJak? Spencer is an evangelical ideologue who sits on the board of directors of the conservative think tank the Marshall Institute, and on the board of advisors of the religiously motivated climate change denialist public policy group the Cornwall Alliance. The former organization has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Exxon, and the latter is a front for CFACT, who is funded by ExxonMobil, Chevron, and the Gulf Oil-rich Scaife family.

@CrakrJak: Ahhh, yes, Dr. Roy Spencer: the AGW "skeptic" who is a creationist, the darling of FOX News, and "the Official Climatologist of the Rush Limbaugh Show."

CJ, we've been down this path before. Spencer is a well-known crank.

But that's fine, CJ. Since you're a creationist yourself, I'd expect you to throw your hat in with him, and I well know that nothing--and I mean *nothing*--that I state or link to is going to change your opinion.

With all due respect Squrlz, A NASA scientist and builder of the satellite that is measuring air and sea surface temperatures (AMSU on the Aqua satellite), Roy Spencer PhD. (former Senior Scientist for Climate Studies for NASA), has a much different opinion.

Roy Spencer PhD

And before the slander starts, he's not paid by any oil companies.

(Cont'd)

For my part, I erred in describing a story on *An Inconvenient Truth* as "entirely untrue"--many of the story's details are, in fact, accurate and I admitted the mistake. This didn't stop An-egg, however, from calling me a liar the rest of the night.

Also, I called An-egg a liar for claiming to be a physicist. I'd apologize for that now--only it turns out he was, indeed, misrepresenting himself and is not a physicist. Rather, as he eventually explained, "one of (his) best friends is a TV weatherman."

@CrakrJak: "Anyways, the 'science' isn't settled and in fact it's been leaning the anti-AGW direction even among non-skeptics."

With all due respect, CJ, NASA disagrees with you.

You're right, however, about it getting personal. Between An-egg and 5Cats, I was called a "credentialed liar," a "charlatan," a "maniac," a "shill," "mentally unstable," and charged with "moral cowardice" and "liberal hypocrisy."

It was quite a show.

Wow, this thread added 5 pages since I last looked at it.

Not going to read through all of it, but apparently it was getting personal.

Anyways, the "science" isn't settled and in fact it's been leaning the anti-AGW direction even among non-skeptics.

Here's a f*cked up idea. How about we all calm the f*ck down, no-one phones anyone, and we all go to bed for the night and pick this up tomorrow? I for one plan to lead by example.

@Squrlz4: I ask you directly:

How much alcohol have you had to drink tonight.

Have you taken your medication today?

My plan doesn't have international calling. I'm sorry about that.

That is a chickenshiite excuse! What sort of coward are you?
A couple of bucks may mean noting to you, but I am on a FIXED income! Every dollar spent outside "the budget" means one less dollar for FOOD!
Do. You. Understand. This. Concept?

Your moral cowardice is only matched by your liberal hypocrisy! And it pains me to say that because I like you.

@5Cats: I don't "refuse" to speak to you on the telephone. I can't. My plan doesn't have international calling. I'm sorry about that.

Seriously? THAT is your "best defense"?

OMG dude, you really need to sober up.

99% certain this can wait until morning...

Over and out.

(Since you refuse to speak to me on the telephone)
(Yes that is an unfair and nasty attack, so what? He invited it!)
(Yeah I like him, but if he acts like an idiot? I treat him like an idiot...)
(SURE he's been really mean to me in the past, but I'm above "all that" and willing to forgive him)

@5Cats: 5Cats? Seriously: take it down a notch. I have no idea why you are getting so worked up. No one's mocking any disease you may or may not have. Deep breaths there, man.

I'm afraid we're limited to these messages here.

You lost a LOT of respect with that remark @Squrlz4. I just don't know what to say. Disappointment...

@5Cats: Before going further here, allow me to set the record straight in regards to the charges of lying (something you just claimed I have "a history" of, 5Cats).

In the course of this entire saga of a thread, I'm aware of making only one inaccurate statement. I referred to a hatchet job piece in the *Telegraph* as "entirely untrue." I was wrong: some of the inaccuracies in Al Gore's movie it cites are accurate. Several hours ago, I admitted my error:

I should not have called the *Telegraph* hatchet job "entirely untrue." I should have called it "a gross distortion of what happened in court, designed to deceive the gullible."


Despite my admission of error, An-egg seemed peculiarly fixated on it, and spent much of the rest of the conversation calling me a liar.

Then, curiously enough, late in the thread, An-egg admitted that he had been misrepresenting himself as a physicist all along. Honestly,

@Squrlz4: Unless you have an "excuse" like "I was drunk at the time" Your actions are, in fact, inexcusable...

Really dude, you've gone too far! You've crossed the Rubicon! You have dratEDUP on an epic scale!

Stones? Glass houses? You have NO IDEA what you're talking about. 99% guaranteed. My disease is not only "common" it's "life threatening" an for you to mock it makes my blood boil...
