Re: I wonder how widespread the consensus really is...

Re: I wonder how widespread the consensus really is...

I just offered that video because you said you didn't want to here anything on this debate that challenges climate change that wasn't technical. The film has a bunch of scientists that resigned from...

Re: I wonder how widespread the consensus really is...

An informed citizenry is a good thing. It's pretty clear who you are-- how is a scientific disagreement initiated by people like Freeman Dyson "wingnuttery"? This is science, not advocacy-- that...

Re: Use of the word "torture"
