ITD, ever stop to wonder if there has EVER been a study sponsored by an oil/coal company that has said "global warming is real and man is causing it?" I bet you haven't, I wonder why? Do you think that perhaps they would lose a lot of money if that happened? Last time I checked, Greenpeace wasn't making a $25 billion profit in a single quarter.
My position throughout this thread has been clear, I think anyone who claims Global Warming is a fact based on what has been presented so far is wrong. As a scientist I would expect you to know the difference between a theory and a fact. There are too many legitimate questions unanswered for someone to draw any conclusions to the data presented. When the Global Warming conclusion is challenged the challenger is derided, a typical tactic when the challenge can't be answered.
