No, you're completely wrong. Don't let that stop you, though.

Our opponents in this thread are neither intelligent children nor informed Americans.

To their "minimal" credit, even the IPCC has ceased spreading the two largest alarmist lies:

"the science is in" and "the debate is over"

Prove this. And if you're going to try using some tabloid article that claims the Met Office said something it didn't say, just start whining about Al Gore now. It'll save you time.

I know what the answer is Sanspeur, at least as far as it pertains to the Doran study because I have read it instead of allowing the media and others to interpret it for me. I'm like a lawyer. I never ask a question in any of these debates I don't the answer too.

What I'm trying to do here is encourage Chad to go look it up himself.

I would assume there are 10,000's of climate scientists in the world. And they are connected to scientists who study ice records, ocean currents, record temperatures, study clouds, study the atmosphere, study ancient temperatures, study living old trees, ex.ex.ex.ex.
Chad there is only one reference on that page that actually polled scientists. It's the Dornan study.

I'm referring to actual numbers where the scientists were polled, and only the Doran study attempted to do that. The other ones differ becsue they arbitrarily assigned positions to the works of other scientists but I'll be happy to discuss the flaws in the Cook study.

Chad, if you want to make an analogy we can compare to the insulation in your ceiling. Saying you know that insulation in your ceiling is going to trap X amount of heat without knowing the R-value and other variables such as if the windows are open is not going to produce very good results is it?

It's the same with climate science becsue there is a plethora of variables that can affect temperature.

Shhhhhh, I was hoping to get Chad to look it up.
