Because when the Los Angeles Times runs a piece questioning the A in AGW (anthropogenic, or man-made, global warming), then you know something is wrong:  Read more

quotidian, Look at the chart a posted in this post: https://uncommondesc.wpengine.com/intelligent-design/youve-been-dead-wrong-for-nearly-two-decades-why-should-we-radically-change-our-economies-now-based-on-what-you-say/ I am not disputing that gasses have gone into the air. I am disputing that the climate alarmists computer model predictions have been accurate. Every single one of them has failed. The question is not whether the gasses have going into the air. Surely they have. The question is not whether there has been a moderate increase in temps. Yes, about 1/3 of a degree in the last 30 years. The question is whether we should base our actions on the predictions of computer models that have failed dramatically and consistently over two decades of experience. What do you say to that question? Barry Arrington
No one gets banned from UD unless they repeatedly violate the moderation policy."
AFAIK, I've never violated the current moderation policy. I had the pleasure of watching Comedy Central with Jon Stewart on the subject of AGW. They showed clips of a number of US senators voicing their opinion on AGW and I found their level of insight in a potentially grave threat to the planet's climate shocking. But watch it for yourself, I believe it should be available at their website. I'd like to read what your response would be. Cabal
I'm really dissappointed by the editorial stance of this forum about global climate change. Many of the philosophical arguments here against materialism I find quite cogent, but this particular issue strikes me as being 'anti-scientific dogmatism', pure and simple, which makes me question the worth of the whole site. Pumping billions of tons of gasses into the atmosphere over hundreds of years does actually change the climate. It is open and shut, there is no question that it is the case. Why you think this is questoinable, certainly beats me, but it does illustrate the degree to which even established science can be called into question for ideological reasons. quotidian
