    The sad part is there are a lot of treatments for mental illness but those who need it keep everyone around them ignorant that they need help.

    Prayers to the family.

    No one is against scientists doing their work, that is a myth perpetrated by the AGW crowd.
    What we are against is scientist stopping the discussion and saying ‘the science is settled’.

    When someone says ‘pumping ever more CO2 into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels’ I detect an agenda, is it possible that mans contribution in releasing CO2 has no effect on the atmosphere? I believe there are many people who think using oil and coal to better our life is somehow an indulgence we need to stop, even if it causes no ill effects.

    Personally I don’t care, I would be very happy if we replaced our need of coal and oil with nuclear reactors, I do know there is a human cost to oil and coal in the extraction process that I would rather eliminate.

    As for cars, I am 100% behind electric because they have the potential to be better than gas powered cars. We will need a lot more electricity before that dream becomes a reality and without a lot of work on our power grid it will never happen.

    OK, the walking back of the theory has started.

    I still will not let the people who called skeptics ‘anti-science’ off the hook. They have done more to damage science than the Catholic Church did when they took on Galileo, it was more important to belittle their adversaries than to look at all the evidence.

    I will not buy the ‘science changed with new information’ line either, the information was out there. THEY refused to look at it and they had the temerity to call us anti-science.

    I will call the consensus argument for what is was, mysticism. It was a belief based solely upon what high priests decided what truth was.

    ‘Griner helped the Phoenix Mercury win a championship this past September.’

    can’t believe I missed that. I did go to a Suns game a few months past, had I known the Phoenix Mercury were playing I definitely would have skipped it to see the girls play.

    He should use that hat for kindling.

    And if you are in a survival situation, burning your food seems a little strange.

    wow, just wow.

    I bet you grind your teeth a lot.

    It really has nothing to do with the man in office.

    Heres some great news for you!! The future generation will be fine. There is no AGW, there is no reason to be hysterical, global warming and cooling is directly related to sun spot activity.

    Don’t worry, you will be fine, there will be a slight cooling in the future but don’t be upset, this is all natural and expected.

    I am a little queazy with the idea that tax information can become public information.

    It couldn’t happen to a better set of nincompoops but it still makes me uneasy.

    People who own iPhones have a lot of money, it is not valid to say they are not targets, they are rich targets, very much valued by hackers.

    The operating system (for non-jail broken phones) is just much more secure than Android, its in the operating system philosophy to make it secure.

    It was a decision made in the beginning of the development of iOS (the iPhone OS) to make it secure, some of the security approaches Android is starting to utilize but unless these measures are done in the very beginning of the OS development it is very difficult to shoehorn them in.

    Personally I believe sometime in the future the Android OS will be jettisoned for a new more secure OS.

    I know it’s more than a little ridiculous to tout Apple security when commenting on this article, I have been trying to understand this flaw all day and am not really understanding it.

    I think the definition of a scientist is a fluid one, is it someone who gets paid to work in a field that requires a knowledge of say Physics or Astronomy? Is it someone who has a certificate from a school that teaches what we call science?

    Personally I would call a guy working on a set of equations in his basement a scientist, a degree means little or nothing to me. Someone building code to place pixels on a screen in a improved and novel way is a computer scientist to me.

    That is NOT what the typical AGW proponent thinks a scientist is, to them the only way to be a scientist is to have a degree AND to have published papers, using that narrow view he is not a scientist.

    Everyone in the AGW side should say he is unqualified to speak on the matter.

    Read what some of the contrarians have said, Joe Bastardi is a good one to start with.

    What you will notice in the contrarians writing is the lack of the consensus rhetoric and more of the actual data and a very sound counter argument. You also meet martyrs to the cause of real science, people who have been fired for doubting AGW. Put yourself in Galileo’s era, do you want to be on the side of the consensus or on the side of the skeptics. Make no mistake, if you blindly side with AGW only based on the so called consensus you are on the side of the mystics, not the side of real science.

    Add to that the substantial fraud in the AGW argument from the discredited hockey stick graph to the emails that spell out actual fraud and hiding of data, you have to ask yourself, who is telling the truth.

    He is an actor playing pretend in a movie, what his politics have to do with it are beyond me.

    I like the guy, whether he is a democrat or republican is beside the point to me. He puts a good spin on the Iron man theme. I never liked Iron man as a comic book character but I like the movies. How about asking him how he builds on the character?

    I really think this AGW fraud will do real harm to the left.

    We no longer live in the days when frauds like this can be swept under the rug, when in 10 years time the warmest try to change the subject when their theories crumble and we enter our cooling phase (predicted by sun spot activity) we will not let them, they will forever be tarnished as anti-science.

    its already happening to some extent, I believe less than 50% of people believe in AGW.

    All warming and all cooling follow sun spot activity. End of story.

    Man has nothing to do with it.

    Well, this is a nightmare that will haunt me for awhile. Thanks Blaze.

    Mr Spock was a far more influential advocate of education the Bill Nye.

    This has nothing to do with science education (nice red herring tho!) Nye comes across as a very nasty narcissist who chooses to ignore science that is contrary to the status quo. He will not accept the contrary view because it would effect his access to celebrities.

    The Catholic Church in the 1600s was more open to honest debate than this AGW crowd.
