Re: scientific consensus

And with that in mind, let me reiterate:

Re: scientific consensus

Now we're making progress.

Re: scientific consensus

You are confusing cause and effect and generally missing the point. The point is that the evidence supporting AGW is sufficiently robust as to drive a broad consensus of scientific opinion, not an easy thing to do.

Re: How to imagine cooling in a warming Arctic

Re: Climate: An Excuse For Tax Hikes

When will it be time to get serious about the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere? I would really like to know, because the actions taken to date have not changed the trend in the least.

That'd be a good point if the land was a gift. The settlements were built on Palestinian land.
