I am going to anticipate the usual spate of ignorant global warming deniers: you are wrong, the OVERWHELMING majority of scientists in applicable disciplines have concluded THROUGH DATA that AGW is real, many are posting their data (go to realclimate.org and see for yourself), the science isn’t even very difficult to understand (go to www.ncse.org/climate for an excellent introduction with links), and there are definitely things we can do about it.So before you start posting nonsense: better check your sources against real data. That means:NOT the Petition Project, which was debunked long ago,NO Al Gore references, since he is IRRELEVANT to the scientific debate and always has beenNO claims that scientists have “forgotten the sun,” “ignored regular cycles,” or "can’t go back more than a century with data: — they haven’t, that’s part of the evidence, and yes they can. Try to consider that a specialist in this field might know at least as much as someone trolling GoComics.com, let alone the ten thousand times more they actually do.Any REAL, thoughtful comments, e.g., on what we might try to do (which is admittedly a challenge given the available time) willnbe welcome.
