Agreed. I am glad to see you admit that your opinions, as a non-climatologist, likewise carry no weight.
Yes, if I were to accuse climate researchers of scientific malfeasance, that opinion would have no weight.
Your opinion has no weight period. You are not a climatologist and your opinion on the topic has no relevance to anyone but you.

In my case, I have never disputed the fact that my opinion carries no weight (beyond that of voting), so if you think you are insulting me by pointing that out, you are wasting your time.

When I have I ever expressed an opinion on this topic, other re: your personal failings? All I have ever done is repeat the facts and occasionally explain them to a lay audience.

I had to look this up, but you are indeed correct. There is no law prohibiting the mentally challenged from voting. Ya learn something every day!

Jeebus Buffy, the evidences are all over this forum.

And again, I will ignore your lame attempts at insulting me. I don't know why you bother, since all it does is make you look childish.

Hot on the heels of Climategate — the leaking of thousands of emails and computer files that show many of the world’s leading climate scientists fudging the results of their global warming research and contriving to keep skeptics from being published in academic journals — comes what could be called Glaciergate.
Blatantly false statement. There has been no evidence of 'fudging' and the scientists are contriving to keep non-academic (re: activist) papers out of academic journals.

There goes that 'Big Lie' thing again...

Beyond that the article itself makes clear that it was a speculative forecast. True, it shouldn't have been in the IPCC report and as such has since been redacted. Not sure what else needs to be said there.

Moving on...
But two Canadian researchers, Stephen McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, showed the graph was meaningless. Prof. Mann had manipulated over 80% of his data sets to ensure the climate numbers produced a hockey stick with ominous 20th-century temperature gains. Nearly any series of numbers plugged into Prof. Mann’s formula produced the same graph.
Another Big Lie.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hockey_sti ... cil_Report

And we conclude with...
You also get to see how the “settled” science behind climate change alarmism was arrived at — not by scientific consensus, but rather by manipulation, misrepresentation and strong-arming.
More accurately, when one is reduced to an untenable position, one has no recourse but to resort to fraud. Ergo trash articles like this.

Any more questions?

While Smith did not propose a name for the amendment to the FOI law, it seems to me that the logical name would be the Jones et al (2010) Amendment (Jones et al being Jones, Philip W., Michael Mann, Keith Briffa, Caspar Ammann and Eugene Wahl.) This might prove a more permanent contribution than any of the Team hockeysticks.

The full statement:
Norfolk Police are investigating how private emails have become public. The Information Commissioner’s Office is assisting the police investigation with advice on data protection and freedom of information.

The emails which are now public reveal that Mr Holland’s requests under the Freedom of Information Act were not dealt with as they should have been under the legislation. Section 77 of the Freedom of Information Act makes it an offence for public authorities to act so as to prevent intentionally the disclosure of requested information. Mr Holland’s FOI requests were submitted in 2007/8, but it has only recently come to light that they were not dealt with in accordance with the Act.

The legislation requires action within six months of the offence taking place, so by the time the action taken came to light the opportunity to consider a prosecution was long gone. The ICO is gathering evidence from this and other time-barred cases to support the case for a change in the law. It is important to note that the ICO enforces the law as it stands – we do not make it.

It is for government and Parliament to consider whether this aspect of the legislation should be strengthened to deter this type of activity in future. We will be advising the University about the importance of effective records management and their legal obligations in respect of future requests for information. We will also be studying the investigation reports (by Lord Russell and Norfolk Police), and we will then consider what regulatory action, if any, should then be taken under the Data Protection Act.”
My guess is that this is not the end of this particular story.

I have no opinion on AGW, just as I have no opinion on evolution, gravity, the Apollo moon landing or whether bricks are heavy. I simply accept these things as part of the reality of our natural world (of which we humans are an integral part).

The fact that you, consistently, seem to think these sorts of things *are* a matter of opinion only demonstrates your near total incomprehension of the subject matter.

You are not even wrong, as you are so far removed from anything approaching competence in the natural sciences that you are incapable of even discussing the issue logically.

You know, I've always wanted to ask Shanek this, but as he's out to pasture you'll have to serve by proxy.

At what point, Xoup, do you realize you are playing for the wrong team? I mean, seriously, look at yourself. A middle-aged failure. Loser. Your entire life revolves around posting to shit bulletin boards like this one, and you can't even do that right. No friends, no woman, no career, nothing that could even be considered even a modest success by even the most conservative of estimates.

How big a fucking FAIL-burger do you have to eat before you realize you are simply wrong?

It's pure Freudian Projection. But victims of projection cannot see it in themselves.

Yeti's characterization of me is obviously not supported by any facts. One wonders why he feels the need to say such things about someone when he clearly has no factual basis for saying it. Quite obviously, if he could win the argument on its merits, he wouldn't feel the need to attack me personally.

After you read enough fuckhead missives from self fail experts online, you may reach a point where the only reason to continue to interact with them

is 4 lulz

Getting them to burst a gasket and explode with anger and venom, it is milking the lolcow.

Xouper, I'm at least a decade younger than you and more successful than you will ever have the opportunity to be. Whether you get your bullshit mail-order PhD or not.

All your critics here and elsewhere are the same. I have no idea how I could project anything regarding you personally as I have no experience as to what its like to be as dismal an excuse for a human being as you are.

But I admit I'm curious. I really want to know big a fail it will take before you wake and realize what a complete waste of space you are.

I have a pet theory that the AGW critics are uniformly failures at life and cling to their skepticism in a desperate attempt to give their otherwise worthless lives meaning.

So far I have seen no evidence to the contrary, here or elsewhere. If you have any evidence to the contrary, please present it.

And in the off chance that you are a high-school teacher, sorry that does not qualify as success (but explains much).

OK, not yet, I see.

An no, I am not a teacher. I am currently a full-time graduate student at a reputable, highly ranked, mid-size university. My thesis adviser is a major international player in his area of research.
