This sounds like the same conclusion that was made by reasonable people weeks ago. The scientists are frustrated by the disinformation from the deniers' camp, but the science is sound and the world is still warming because of anthropogenic greenhouse gases. Edit: @Conservative --- You're so funny. You ALWAYS say the exact opposite of the truth. Hehe! I'm sure that you do this on purpose. The latest survey of climatologist actually shows that 97%[1] of them support the consensus that the earth is warming and that humans are the main cause. @Eric c -- A "trick" is NOT bad science. It's slang for a clever way to solve a problem. Search the scientific literature, and you'll find tons of examples of the word "trick" being used in exactly this way. Here, I'll even make this easy for you by providing the results of a google search: http://scholar.google.com/scholar?as_q=&...

Larrie Originally Answered: Does anyone besides liberals think factcheck.org is an unbiased source since its run by?
A few other "facts" about Annenberg: =========================== Walter Annenberg was a billionaire, philanthropist, and a pretty well known Republican, friend of both Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Walter Annenberg, was a lifelong REPUBLICAN and former ambassador who was appointed by Presidents NIXON and REAGAN. Walter Annenberg funded an ambitious program to reform urban education in many cities in the mid 1990s. Ayers was an important member of the group that developed and wrote the grant proposal to the Annenberg Foundation. Second, there were people of all political persuasions working on this effort with this "terrorist" Ayers and who saw him as acceptable and Obama was no closer than any of the others. ...no one on the board or on the Annenberg Challenge staff remembers Obama being any closer to Ayers than to any other member of the board. The Annenberg board also included several civic, business and education leaders, many of them REPUBLICANS.

I'm not sure whether Conservative is lying or just completely deluded when he says "The majority of scientists are skeptical of the claims that CO2 is causing global warming," but he is completely wrong. If he doesn't believe me he should go to the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco next week, the largest gathering of earth scientists in the world (16,000 attendees) and take a poll. I can assure him that the results he gets won't agree with what he claims. Imagine is mostly correct when she says "There's no such thing as a scientific consensus," but what the IPCC and other scientific organizations are providing is a consensus of scientists, which is a different thing. The science is not being decided by consensus, but recommendations to policymakers are.

There's no such thing as a scientific consensus. That's what existed when people were forced to believe the earth is flat. Now they're being bullied into believing humans cause climate change. Since these supposed "scientists" now admit to changing the data to fit their conclusions, they are no longer considered scientists. They're politicians. When they say to continue with legislation to combat "global warming" after they admit there's no science to support it, it just proves the whole thing is motivated by politics instead of science.

Well I got a new recording that I am going to have to put on line for all the liberals to listen to. It is all about the world getting colder from a quiescent sun. But then liberals do not yet realize the world is cooling do they. Well in a couple of more years when we reach 1850 temps they might just realize the world is cooling rather rapidly instead of warming like they thought is was. So much fun to know what is happening when others do not have a clue, so much fun! Some scientific information revealing the truth about global warming, when it happened and what probably caused it. And as well how many years, centuries or millennia it might be before the world warms up again from the coming ice age. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:0Master_Past_20000yrs_temperatures_icecore_Vostok_150dpi.png http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/global_warming.html http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/greenhouse_data.html http://reasonmclucus.tripod.com/CO2myth.html http://mc-computing.com/qs/Global_Warming/Atmospheric_Analysis.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_variation Where the heat came from and why it was abnormally cold previously http://www.ac.wwu.edu/~dbunny/research/global/215.pdf http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_cycle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_minimum http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maunder_Minimum

Daly Originally Answered: I am confused about the Obama birth certificate on factcheck.org?
It is NOT the birth certificate. It is a certificate of live birth (COLB) which is not the same. the COLB was issued by HI after Obama's parents registered his birth using the real certificate from who knows where. Hawaii has long allowed this practice when births were in fact in other countries. The only verification done by Hawaii is that there IS one. That's not the issue, however. It's Where he was born that is the issue. The original is sealed and that's why everyone is saying he has not provided proof of his citizenship which is correct. What is he hiding? I had to provide mine when I joined the service, got married, applied for a driver's license, got my first job. What's the hold up and reason the people are not entitled to see it?? The DNC and Howard Dean are trying to pull a fast one on the american people. If it is ever proven that this information was withheld, both Dean and Obama will be guilty of fraud.
