spookmineer.....it's obvious that climate change is an on-going thing. But the "greenhouse" effect that Gore talks about, points directly to a warming effect caused by a decreasing ozone layer. The new NASA data tends to cast more doubt on Gore's theory. Now if you take that as a personal attack.....
It does no such thing, unless
you are pre-convinced that all observable changes to climate and oceans are simply hallucination, and all scientific answers to explain said changes are some evil scheme to make life miserable. That would be an extraordinary claim, requiring extraordinary evidence. All that you've presented is an isolated data set that the scientists who collected it are at a loss to explain.
Yet somehow, you come to the conclusion that this proves what you obviously wish to be true.
From there, you put the cart before the horse, and make this about Gore - as if he is personally conducting and directing climatologists, oceanographers and their research, as opposed to simply giving it a higher public profile. That is just plain silly.
These threads get locked because of childish thread trashing and spamming, demonstrated by some of the several posts already appearing in this thread.
I'd say it starts with your inflammatory sig. That sets the bar pretty low, if you indeed cared about civil debate. It opens the door for me to point out, that as a conservative, you believe that anything you disagree with is an assault to be fought off, at any cost in truth or civility - because that's just the way conservatives are. That's no more an attack than your sig, and you set the bar. I suspect you will disagree with that, because conservatives also think that they should be held to a lower standard of decency in public discourse than those they disagree with - a handicap, or an affirmative action, if you will.
Personally, I think these sorts of broad, blunderbuss, political 'insights' are a waste of time, if not counter-productive. But again, you set the bar.
Too bad this new data doesn't quite fit into current PC beliefs.....that's the bad news. The good news is that this new computer data seems to indicate that climate change isn't quite as drastic as the Gore theory would have you believe...... maybe much less so.
This new data cannot be described as good or bad news until it is understood by the scientists themselves. The opinions of liberal bashing conservatives don't carry an ounce of scientific weight.
