    The ducks at our local pond are used to eating bread CRUMBS, not nice bread SLICES. I guess that’s the kind of thing Tony was trying for.

    Unfortunately, I have a number of unpleasant memories of doing that dance…a VERY animated one, it is!!

    Thanks! I’m an introvert by nature, and I’ve just recently started joining the online debates. Usually, it’s in other forums, though…although you are right…Frazz is the perfect comic to foster these discussions. Won’t usually see these following “Ben” :)

    Love your image of the towel! That’s quite a background as well! My own BS is psychology (as opposed to those with BA’s in Psych)…ours was all about how to set up studies, usually involving lab rats! But I find myself using my more recent degree (law) more and more. THAT’s a degree that will mess up your mind…for the rest of my life, I will always be looking for holes in arguments!

    Thanks! Very interesting and thoughtful comment…very fitting for a comic strip like “Frazz” :) Since the boss is now reaching out to see where I am on a project, I’m going to have to exit the discussion. But I really like what you said, especially about the role of the news media. So to close on a lighter note, I always find it amusing to see a news anchor on TV deliver the latest “warming crisis” news with such a grave expression, and then suddenly get all chipper as he/she turns to the weather guy, and says, “Brrr, Charlie! Please tell us it will be 80 degrees tomorrow!” When it’s a Boston news station…in January!

    Thanks for a very respectful reply! Yes, I have heard that, especially about one pole growing and one shrinking. Seriously, I am actually pro-environment, but I want to be concerned about things that are verified. That’s why I have issues when I hear about things like sensors being placed near asphalt areas, etc. What’s the real data? Impact on animals, such as sea life? Is that due to climate change or overfishing (overpopulation as a more proximate cause than warming). Glaciers retreating? But haven’t they been since the end of the last glacial age about 10,000 years ago? Animals and humans (and pre-humans) have been moving depending on the climate and other environmental factors for epochs. I respect efforts to address problems. It’s just my nature to be suspicious of people telling me to panic without looking at the entire picture. And I can’t help thinking that the current “panic” is partially due to how we’ve built our civilization…how do you move a billion dollar skyscraper away from the rising water, which may or may not rise anyway, depending on if warming is natural or manmade?

    OK all of you “climate change deniers are just ignorant” types. Come down off your high horse for a minute. I have a science degree (not in climate studies), and I respect science, and I do believe in climate change..it’s why we’re not in the Ice Age anymore. But here’s why I’m a doubter about the “crisis” part of it. Too many news items about things like misplaced temperature sensors. Too many conflicting news stories (NASA satellites showing more heat escaping into space than previously thought, IPCC reports showing Antarctic ice caps are GROWING, not shrinking, etc.). Of course, climate change advocates have responses to each piece of evidence contrary to their view. But who is correct? Each side claims “scientific data” to be on their side. Sounds to me like the science isn’t as settled as it is supposed to be. Also, just what is the climate SUPPOSED to be ideally? Sorry to get sucked into this on a discussion board about a fun comic strip!
