Damnhippyfreak: As far as I remember, brantgoose is in Canada, where the titular head of state or Sovereign remains the Queen of England. No pond-crossing required./the more you know
Mugato: GeneralJim: Nothing is as important in science as not rocking the boat.You have the exact opposite position of what science is about.
HighZoolander: Even if you just factored in the typical waste disposal problem with nuclear, I suspect 200 acres would not be nearly enough. Plus it seems like it would be much easier to decommission a wind farm than a nuclear site, if we later decide we want to use the land for something else.
IlGreven: But again, if I were to trust anyone, I'd trust the direct source, rather than those who only cite them. IOW, You don't trust Al Gore or Christopher Monckton directly, you trust the scientist that Gore or Monckton cited. And you'll find that again and again, it's more likely that a scientist will call out Monckton (and Watts) more often than they'll call out Gore (mainly because Gore has already said his piece.)/Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled panels on climate change invited Monckton to give a dissertation on a certain paper...instead of the scientist who actually wrote the paper.//Those guys need to be divested of their power post-haste.
HighZoolander: But, it's certainly heartwarming* to see that you staunchly oppose any effort to move towards sustainable energy
TsukasaK: The consensus is that climate is changing. Okay; that much is clear.The big questions remaining then:* Is this a bad thing* Can we or should we do anything about it
brantgoose: As a Government employee I swore an oath of allegeance to the Queen and to her Government. I promised to keep Her Secrets and Her Government's Secrets. A report is only public domain when it is published, and the taxpayer, God bless her, does not have a right to read Government secrets until the government releases them. I have not got the right to divulge those secrets until they are declassified, and even though I know that most secret documents are only temporarily secret, I still have no right to publish them.
TsukasaK: So question.. how many of you who were so eager to snark at the source actually clicked through for the actual papers about halfway through?
Mugato: People who deny the majority of the scientific communities view on global warming do so either because they fear it will affect them financially or because they're toeing the party line. End of argument.
GAT_00: Sun may well be warming the planetYeah, it's about 1-2% of the overall forcing. Relatively insignificant.
/P.T. Barnum also sounded convincing when he sold the egress to the untrained eye.

Uh huh. Well, I don't have a leaked copy, but I do know what was in the last one and I have second and third hand knowledge of this one, so... Sun may well be warming the planet Yeah, it's about 1-2% of the overall forcing. Relatively insignificant.
Sun may well be warming the planet
NFA: While I'm not personally on the global warming boat, if that website told me the sun would rise in the east, I would look out the window to check, before I believed them.
St_Francis_P: Nice blog; but until I see an authoritative YouTube video on the subject, I'm remaining skeptical.
