More liberal abuse of science. June 3, 2006Posted by Administrator in Global Warming, Liberal Hypocrisy.
Link here. Scroll down to the bit that states the following:
This is a little thing, I know. But DarkSyde, DailyKos' very own mad scientist (sorry PZ, I know you want the job and look the part, but Steve beat you to it) puts this little sentence up there as a refutation for the apparent argument that there is no global warming.
That is not the argument. The argument is whether or not the warming is anthropogenic in nature. And for the 1.35 X 10+357th time (I wish wordpress would let me do (*$#&&$%ing superscript), we do not have enough data to tell if it's anthropogenic in nature. <150 years of data is not going to tell us if 150,000-5,000,000-year cycles of weather change is causing these glacial retreats, or if humans really are responsible.
Though the betting odds at this point still indicate very strongly that it's old Mother Earth doing the glacial backstep here.
But, you put out your little one-sentence blurb, with your pictures of glacial retreat. . .and make the folks opposed to a global-warming panic look like ostriches.
That's just fine there, Chicken Little.
