As for the peer review process, one can only put faith in it if contains a cross section of beliefs which is not the case for the issue of global warming. Because of that any research that they put their seal of approval on is suspect. How many articles have been peer reviewed and published that were later determined to be dead wrong? Many of Fred Hoyleís articles for the steady state theory of the universe where peer reviewed and yet we now believe that the big bang theory is the correct theory.Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

We cannot validate the present and future average temps against a historical constant. What is the right temperature?
I don't advocate catastrophism or hysteria, but I do advocate action on our part, but not at the expense of liberties or our ability to maintain our status as economic leader of the world.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

"Belief" in a theory in the scientific community is analogous with a "Subscription" to same. Us commoners are put off by the latter and "Belief" is what we more readily relate to: Hence Joe Publicís perspective that all scientists are "Eggheads", ego driven and pompous.
Reference Curtis LeMayís opinions of Robert Oppenheimer prior to the "Gadget" actually working.;)At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)
