The last thing I want to do is to revisit the tedious back and forth discussions on global climate change, as each side, pressed for time, simply throws their favorite source links on the table. Unfortunately, because most of us have real lives, we lack the time to undertake the research we would wish to pursue in support of positions that we have learned over time.
However, for future reference, I can very highly recommend this link (below), published by credentialed scientists, as a very readable (to laypersons) take-down of the AGW dilemma faced by many scientists who were too quick to jump on the AGW bandwagon and must now confront the consequences to their credibilities. It’s a long article, but can be cherry-picked to address specific issues that (I’m proud to say) many of the commentators on this blog very accurately addressed over the preceding years. It is also full of new information (and links) of which I was not aware.
Here’s an example:
A recent U.S. Senate report quotes 400+ scientists who originally bought the global warming hoax, and are now confessing that they don’t believe in it any more.” [link is provided]
The article is particularly good at explaining very clearly how data was either misinterpreted or manipulated to support the AGW position. The famous Mann “hockey stick”, for example.
So, here’s my advice: bookmark this article and use it as a reference the next time you find yourself in a rhetorical exchange on AGW.
Here’s the link:
If you really feel compelled to argue this issue into oblivion, then I recommend using this as a starting point: argue cogently why it is wrong, using facts …not links.
