    Oh girl, that’s gonna start a fire. I can feel it gettin’ HAWWWWWWT.

    Al Gore predicted his warm globes would heat the earth so much that the ice caps would melt by 2011.

    Thankfully, Obama’s stimulus stopped it, so no need to cling bitterly to man-made climate change.

    Glossolalia much? As a matter of fact, arctic sea ice has been hitting new lows every year. Not that facts will mean much to Alan.

    @ ALAN: I’m sure the burnt out people of Greece and Russia think your joke is really funny.

    I can proudly say that I worked at that lab when I was a teenager (in their radio astronomy group). And it was a friendly place for homos.

    Three skeptics were converted this year. Economist Bjorn Lomborg has gone from denying human caused climate change to claiming mitigation would be cheaper than prevention to saying prevention is the best option.

    Physicist Richard A. Muller aided by his former grad student, Nobel Prize winner Saul Perlmutter, has gone from a skeptic to accepting. He crunched far more temperature data than Hadley, NOAA, and NASA and not only confirmed their results, but said they were conservative. The temperature anomaly is 1 degree C, not .6.

    Sadly the denialists, different from skeptics because evidence will change their minds, I was once a skeptic, are stuck in a mindset they cannot change because they have never examined any piece of evidence with an open mind.

    Hey Chris,

    Just curious if you could reference something specific for your Bjorn Lomborg claim? I just couldn’t find anything readily and was wondering if you could point me in the right direction.
