LOL! You think that posting a Wikipedia entry on Nova is going to make things all better! How cute!

Correction - it was made an important issue only recently. Eaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarth has been getting by just fine for billions of years with climate change.

And the only reason it's important now is because they're trying to pass all sorts of draconian laws restricting people's rights on the basis of a flawed and very disproveable theory.

And when they get caught lying, like the scientists at the University of East Anglia (one of only two sources that went into the IPCC report that everybody is crying their heads off over), people are supposed to just brush it off. Never mind, folks, nothing to see here. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

See, you like to throw names of famous people around, in some attempt to lend weight to your pro-AGW argument. I could never understand how famous people are supposed to make an argument stronger.

Maybe if you use the names of Hollywood actors, then you might gain some ground. Eh?

Besides that, you do a Google search and you'll find just as many climatologists who are opposed to AGW. Quit appealing to authority, and argue AGW on its own merits.

And this has relevance to AGW... How? How is cloning supposed to have relevance to crippling entire economies? How does cloning have to do with politicians burning lots of gas and using lots of resources while telling us that cloning is a danger?
