Comment Re: Stop calling it "skepticism". (Score 2) 166

The history of greenhouse effect theory is interesting and well worth reading up on. It was first raised as a possibility in the 1890s, but rejected quickly based on two erroneous beliefs: (1) that the oceans would rapidly absorb any increase in atmospheric CO2 and (2) that the absorption spectra of water vapor and CO2 mostly overlapped. Together these implied that CO2 could not increase in the atmosphere, and even if it did it could not capture any heat that water vapor wouldn't have anyway.

There are a lot of twists and turns in the story, which Wikipedia does a pretty good job of summarizing. I highly recommend reading that article.

Northern Hemisphere temperatures have plummeted in the last six months proving global warming is fake news.

And, given that there is far more land mass in the northern hemisphere it seems obvious that global temperatures have plummeted also.

Who wants to be the one to break it to him?

I can contribute to this discussion, but I have to post anonymously for reasons that will be obvious. I work at a major research institution along the east coast. I am paid well, well into six figures, as a climate researcher. My job is to fabricate data, but to make it believable enough that people accept our research is true. I can assure you that most climate research, like my own, is fabricated and completely false.

My favorite part of this is that this numbskull thinks there's a climate scientist who makes six figures.

I don't want to give my real name for reasons that would be obvious, but I am Stephen Hawking and I just gave it to your mom in the butt.

We've just seen the hottest November on satellite record.

You believe those leftard satellites and liberal thermometers? kek.

There is no real evidence for the laws of physics, just conjecture by Soros-funded so-called "scientists". It's all an SJW marxist plot, and the brave journalists at Breitbart have confirmed this, but of course, you don't want to see the truth because it doesn't fit your fact-based agenda.

Seems like a nice and kind fellow with a few odd ideas.

You're being too generous. I realize you try to see the best in people, Ol, but,

He said he believed prison makes people gay.

He said that Obamacare was worse than slavery.

He said the Big Bang is a “fairy tale” and the notion of evolution was encouraged by the devil.

You people are really getting bad.

"You people"?

You have no respect for anyone who disagrees with you

When someone says that biblical Joseph built the pyramids to store grain, it's not a "disagreement". It's a delusion.

It's like saying you disagree with a guy who says he's Napoleon Bonaparte.
