    That isn't something a wise man proportioning his belief to the evidence would post.
    Walter Cronkite interviews a politician. Why is that posted here?

    Why is it apparently OK for alarmists here to post:

    Non-expert opinion
    Links to newpaper articles
    Links to blog opinion

    But not for sceptics?

    People can post anything within the rules of the site ... just don;t expect a free pass from me when you post tripe.

    I don't expect people to rely on journalistic comment for their facts ... but on the science papers or science quotations referred to in any article or blogpost.... if a person is a true "sceptic", they should always be checking. As I have often pointed out out, the self-styled "sceptics" are the most gullible on the thread, and accept without question any that remotely favours their case.

    The Cronkite video (besides its intrinsic interest as a historical document) debunks two specific points often made on the thread - that concern about global warming is something novel, like a UN "world government" plot (from 1989 or even 1996) - as I pointed out here before - President Lyndon Johnson was the first major statesman to draw attention to it in the 1960s, and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was the first to voice a warning in a public speech.

    The other myth is that in the 1970s climate scientists were exclusively concerned with global cooling. That is clearly not the case if a scientist (Dr Gordon McDonald) was giving evidence to a Senatorial committee in 1980 about anthropogenic global warming.

    Since this video is hated so much, I take great delight in posting it again. It does not get everything right, but we should not expect it to. What is surprising is how much of it is spot on.

    At present, we cannot simulate accurately the details of regional climate and thus cannot predict the locations and intensities of regional climate changes with confidence. This situation may be expected to improve gradually as greater scientific understanding is acquired and faster computers are built.
    That was written in 1979.
    33 years later, no change.

    Odious can post all the tripe he wants to and then repost it two or three times, "just don;t[sic] expect a free pass from [him] when you post [what he considers to be] tripe."

    Coldwave killing people in Russia, Britain, and the US


    Written by JoNova | January 23 2013

    If a few weeks of extreme heat suggest CO2 is causing a catastrophe, then don’t a few weeks of Siberian record-breaking cold suggest the opposite?*

    Tell me which continent the island of Greenland is 'part' of?

    Greenland is part of the North American continent.

    Anything else that you would like to know? Something about climate change, perhaps? Or the history of Greenland?

    There are several willing contributors here to lead you out of your ignorance.
