Re: [Weather] Arctic sea ice melts to record low
said by Wolfie00:Uh huh. The United Nations International Panel on Climate Change is not the "global scientific community". And there's much they produce I don't disagree with. But they're a self-selecting body, indeed influenced politically, so there's that too. Sorry, no dice there.
Well, one example would be a very important group that meets and issues a comprehensive assessment of the science every 5 to 7 years, and that would be the IPCC. Ah, but despite the involvement of some 2500 of the most distinguished independent climate scientists around the world for each assessment cycle, they are merely the tool of third-world tin-pot dictators. Ok, fine.
said by Wolfie00:OK, and I disagree that the climate is changing, and we ought to be doing something about it? No again. Nice try as well.
The national academies of all advanced countries in the world, who have issued several different joint statements on the unequivocal reality of anthropogenic climate change and the urgent need for action on GHG mitigation? Discussed before, so I already know that that's no good, because it's just "glib" statements with no actual meaning!
said by Wolfie00:Agreed. I suggest that you stop that behaviour?
No, Ian, the "glib" statements are from those whose objective seems to be to win Internet debates rather than deal with actual facts.
Any claim that the root of a problem is simple should be treated the same as a claim that the root of a problem is Bigfoot. Simplicity and Bigfoot are found in the real world with about the same frequency. David Wong
