Algore is like the new Jack Frost.  When he comes towards you, the temperature drops.  His species is why his home world of Hoth is an ice planet.  It had long been a hot desert world when his kind were deported there from the kingdom of Frigia on Mongo.

jehovahs witness protection: Some dude wrote this same shiat on a cave wall 4 million years ago. Today, scientists corrected his spelling.


There is no climate change!
If there is any it's purely natural! <- YOU ARE HERE
Even if it's not natural there's nothing we can do!
It's too expensive to do anything!
It's probably more expensive to do nothing...

Yamaneko2: wage0048: That's nothing.

In Minneapolis, there was snow on Saturday.  There was frost Monday morning, and it's 98* right now.  It hit 102 on the MN/IA border.

It looks like winter ended Monday morning, you had 24 hours of spring, and now it's summer.  Just wait until Autumn -- should be there in about a week.

Breaking record lows and highs back to back should be considered strange. They're records for a reason.

Yup, sure was cold in the US.  Glad the US is the only country whose temperature matters.

What isn't hilarious is that conservatives think that their ignorance and stupidity is just as valid as science and data.

Fantastic counterpoint. Exactly what science and data, now?

Are you seriously claiming that you know of no scientific evidence of global warming?

I know about scientific evidence. Keep in mind that the climate change issue is a scientific theory, not necessarily a fact.

Let me ask you, what is faith? In the frame of religion, it is to blindly believe in something despite anyone telling you otherwise or any evidence to the contrary, right? It is a complete devotion to a concept no matter who says what about it.

Tell me then, what is the difference between faith in a science theory and faith in a religion? They are not mutually exclusive, both have been proven wrong numerous times. One can believe in bits of both. Both have influenced mankind in immeasurable ways. Why are such bitter sides taken on things that we won't live long enough to prove?


So, basically... The opinion of a random person has just as much weight as someone who has studied the problem? Say, Jenny McCarthy's strongly-held opinion carries as much weight for you as collected, published, and cross-checked data?

You're assuming that science and religion operate under the same requirements. They don't, and saying as much makes one sound like a college kid who just discovered philosophy.

No one talks of "believing in" probability theory, general relativity, Boyle's law, or the the Pythagorean Theorem. Those can be checked and cross-checked by anyone interested with sufficient wit and interest. They're not things that sprung whole from one source and otherwise exist in a vacuum.

Religion doesn't operate under the same system.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

Whether or not you *believe* that Asimov quote applies to anthropogenic climate change, you are doing exactly what he described by equating the scientific method with theology.

It works as a function of climate, actually.

eatin' fetus: Hollie Maea: eatin' fetus: It's hilarious that when global warming doesn't seem to be happening at all, conservatives are loudly told that its all about climate changes over time and that the whole issue is way too complex for them to understand. Yet, common late spring/early summer temperature fluctuations based on pressure gradients are offered as absolute proof of global warming.
