How many of the scientists listed on the CGFI webpage support the CGFI's position? 1%? 50%? 99%? We don't know because all we have is a bulky list of scientists who might or might not support the CGFI's position.

This is cute...
So, I randomly choose one of the studies cited on the CGFI list Sonnabend posted and looked it up...
Climate and the Collapse of Maya Civilization
Gerald H. Haug,1* Detlef GŁnther,2 Larry C. Peterson,3 Daniel M. Sigman,4 Konrad A. Hughen,5 Beat Aeschlimann2
Why does the CGFI believe that a study about climate change many centuries before the industrial revolution refutes AGW?
No scientists on either side of the global warming debate are claiming that Earth has not gone through natural warming and cooling cycles. Let me repeat that... no scientists on either side of the global warming debate are claiming that Earth has not gone through natural climate changes.
The fact that Earth, like any planet, goes through natural climate changes does not mean that the climate going on now is the result of a natural cycle. It may be but it may not be. This is where science comes in.

SonnabendGuest08-26-2008, 10:52 AMNo its a scientific theory which is nearly unanimously accepted among climatologists (the people who actually make a living studying this stuff)
That was my point. You., Eyelids and LP seem to have a major problem with reading comprehension.; Maybe you need a course in the subject, "peer reviewed" of course.

No one knows. How fucking hard is it for you lot to say four simple words:
"We could be wrong"
Yet all the warmenistas are carrying on and saying "the science is settled" (it isn't by a long shot) "its unanimous" (it isn't, and anyone who says it is, is lying) and calling those who dare to ask questions as akin "holocaust deniers"...anything to shut down debate.
Scratch a leftist, find a fascist.
Every. single. time.
