I've got a headache.
Venezuelan government is running a surplus, not a deficit
Hahahaha. Oh the hilarity. Venezuela, progressive paradise.
It would be similar to people from Iraqi coming over to the USA and physically forcing as many people as they could to wear headscarfs under the argument of improving our morals
I expect you're one of those people who thinks Venezuela's current government is "forging a bold new alternative to neo-liberalism", aren't you.
All in all the best you can say is that science is a messy process, yet it's hardly ever presented as such by the media.
They sampled red-green ratios from various painters, compared it to historical pollution data and found a correlation.
Good God. Seriously? Really wonkey_monkey? You're willing to give these idiota the benefit of the doubt because... they found a correlation? I know what happens next: The correlation becomes a model, the model predicts utter doom for mankind, possibly, but first more money is needed to fund further research!
They should be fired for brining science into disrepute. I bet their "correlation" doesn't have any error bars because, well, they have no idea how accurate their measurement is.
and what we've observed is the warming that was predicted
Don't be silly. What's happened is scientists have absolutely no clucking clue what caused the warming, or indeed the cooling, or indeed the warming before that or the cooling before that, but nevertheless will hoover up huge grants for their research institutions by pretending they do.
Many scientists concurred, he said, that recent heatwaves and floods were evidence of climate change already on the march
What a load of utter shite.
