Just this morning, we see the kind of thing that the Warmists ignore.   The Biggest Science Scandal Ever  
 Clearly it's because Republicans hate the environment.  I'm sure it has nothing to do with the conservation movement being hijacked by radicals and hucksters.  Right?  
 "The position of the Republican party, and conservatism in general used to be 180 degrees in opposition to today's stance." Wow.  Really?  Just a little leap there?  
 You're spot-on without knowing it.  The point is that there is no publicized "dire list" on the  Church of Global Warming's side.  But such risks are very real.   But the powers that be do not care about risk.  They care about wealth/power redistribution on a global scale.  
 I think that's a false dilemma.  I certainly accept that the scientific theory of anthropogenic global warming is well-rooted in peer-reviewed research.  As I stated, such a theory is supported "in the lab."  However, it is also undeniable that the models predicting the real world global effects of AGW are inaccurate.  Earlier it was claimed that science is prediction.  If that's the case, the science on this matter has yet to be proven right in any sense.    I probably...
 This comment reflects a stunning ignorance on your part.   This ignorance is one of what motivates business and how it behaves, as well as the effects on economic activity high tax rates have.   Corporations are certain to do one thing:  Act in their own self-interest.  You can tax them and regulate them all you want, but it is in their very nature to make as much money and find as many loopholes as possible.  This is not evil, it is just reality.  The problem here is...
 It's even worse than that.  The real list would read something like this:   Massive economic damage People dying from cold and hunger due to lack of fuel Skyrocketing energy prices Negative environmental consequences of both wind and solar power (both well-documented) A bankrupt government devoid of needed tax revenue  Air and water no cleaner than today's  Corrupt businesses managing "carbon credits" and taxes  
muppetry,  I just want to address this part of your post, because it seems to be the most important.  I want to be clear that I am not trying discredit the field of climate science.  I am simply saying that virtually none of the predictions with respect to warming have come to pass--not the in last 40 years.  Moreover, the scientific method is NOT being embraced by a great number of people in the Church of Global Warming.  They are absolutely not reevaluating the models....
 In general, I agree scientific funding is not based on following the consensus.  But in reality for this issue, it absolutely is.  Do you honestly think there are as many research dollars out there (private and public) for those whose theorems revolve around debunking man-made climate change?Do you honestly not see that enormous pressure on scientists to accept the mythical "consensus" on this issue?    So, the negative has never been proven?  Is that honestly what you're...
It's not that "scientists are in it for the money." It's that there are economic realities. Researchers must often be published, compete for grant money, etc. They have a vested economic interest in adhering to the so-called consensus on GW. It's analogous to teaching. We teachers aren't in it for the money, either. But we still are influenced by economic factors. What I don't understand is why people recognize this with regard to profits for Big a Oil, but not on...
