    Reading this thread reminds me of a Congressional Debate in DC.
    Before you buy in to the "97%" myth, you should read this. Just because Obama says something doesn't make it true!

    Perhaps this is classism - my WSJ subscription was getting too expensive so I don't have access behind the paywall anymore. I guess I will have to remain poor and uninformed.

    Just because some guys have vested interest in denying climate change does not make what they say true!

    Just because the Koch brothers paid some scientists to debunk common thinking doesn't make the 97% false either. Or so says Salon. (They aren't exactly unbiased of course.)

    Isn't picking the evidence that matches our POV exactly what we should all avoid?

    "NASA Study Finds Earths Ocean Abyss Has Not Warmed," NASA discussed research it had conducted that was "the first to test the idea using satellite observations, as well as direct temperature measurements of the upper ocean." NASA stated in this release, "The cold waters of Earths deep ocean have not warmed." A new NASA study, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years
    How does this prove that climate change isn't happening??? Or for that matter the earth isn't warming?

    I actually was looking for the WSJ article (you know paywall and all that), and this article came up, and it turns the authors of the WSJ article had vested interest in debunking climate change.

    I don't think that should be ignored.

    So, by admitting this, you just proved everything you have posted from a site has been BS.

    Thanks.

    Wouldn't the WSJ article be classified as pushing an agenda too? Are we going to ignore the fact the authors of that article have conflicting interest about the topic they are writing about?

    Yeah salon's agenda is protect the earth. Big Oil's agenda is to protect big oil. I am okay with choosing one over the other. I am fine with my bias. That science agrees is comforting that I am on the right side.

    Incorrect, NASA said the deep ocean is not getting warmer, this does not mean the planet is not getting warmer. Where do you make the leap that in order for the planet to get warmer the deep ocean needs to have increase in temperature.

    Do you get your scientific facts from the same source as Larry Buschon does?
