I am at a loss as to how to respond to any individual that has completely closed their mind to other explanations, theories or arguments about any topic, be it contentious or not.
Coolie has constantly harped on how carbon trading and taxation is wrong, and that we are idiots for buying into this. Yet, I can't think of anyone who has even mentioned these issues except him. He doesn't ask, he YELLS - and when he doesn't think he's being heard, he quotes articles, blogs and searches the web for information that bolsters his narrow viewpoint.
I said it before, and I say it again here: Global climate change
is factual. The causation and prediction is what is fueling this particular debate. And, contrary to what Coolie might say, I am not nor have I ever been a staunch supporter of the AGW hypothesis. (It's still a hypothesis, after all, not a theory.) Personally, I would need to see the data for myself, much like SF did.
Right after I back up my hard drive.
