  1. Well just find me some empirical evidence supporting the “anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis and I will leave you guys alone.

    Cheers

  2. Great!

    So where exactly is the empirical evidence supporting the “anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis then?

    Cheers

  3. No I said Empirical Evidence!

    That site basically only displays correlations between CO2 level observations and Global temperature observations.
    Even many of those observations are suspect but the point is, there is actually no emperical evidence shown that I can see. In fact because they rely on correlations, I cannot see any scientific evidence there at all let alone any of the empirical kind.

    If you ever studied statistics, the first thing they tell you is that correlation does not prove anything.

    But I am sure you know that already, just as I am sure you would not let any website mislead you.
    You must have some empirical evidence somewhere in order to believe what you do and I am very anxious that you share it with me.

    Cheers

  4. Last one: http://www.skepticalscience.com/human-fingerprint-in-global-warming.html

    Roger, I’ve been feeding you responses from the Twitterbot because having watched you spin your wheels for 60-something comments once before it’s obvious to me that you’re not interested in evidence.

    You’re welcome to think you know better than the vast majority of climate scientists, but I’m going to go ahead and take their word for it over yours. The evidence is there and it’s freely available for you to read. You’ve been spoon-fed the links. Troll somebody else.

    • I am very much aware of the scientific process.

      There is nothing wrong with demanding good evidence for AGW considering what the IPCC is asking from us in terms of CO2 emission reductions and wealth transfers.

      If there is no empirical evidence for the unproven “anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis then we had better be on our toes don’t you think?

      Do not take my word or anyone elses on this but I thoroughly recommend that you look at real factual evidence, and use your own brain to decide if it leads anywhere.

      Cheers

  5. Yes and we never did find where the IPCC deals with the issue of the cost of CO2 emission reductions did we?

    Cheers
