Actually, there are hardly any scientists who disagree with AGW, and those few have been discredited. Also, Hadley didn't falsify any data, AFAIK Hansen isn't associated associated with Hadley, Hadley can't release the data because it isn't theirs to release, and Hansen (among others) does support nuclear power.

So, five wrong statements so far. Want to try for six?

Indeed. I spent several years working as a photogrammetrist. This involved staring into a stereoscope with both eyes pointing straight ahead and focussed at infinity, tracing details from a 3-D model resolved 9in my brain) from a pair of aerial photographs with about a 60% overlap.

That sounds a fair bit like the technology Mark Pesce reckons is so dangerous. I (and the probably thousands of other people who did this) have felt no ill-effects.

I guess South Australia could be considered humid compared to New Mexico (I wouldn't know for sure, not having been there, but I'll bow to your superior knowledge), but those of us who live here think of it as dry. Now, Sydney, or Darwin in the wet season, that's humid. You can watch the water come out of the air onto your skin as it cools in the evenings.
