We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert."

    Oh, that was actually the previous post. Yes, that's a beauty, isn't it? The "pound on the table" quote from elsewhere also fits nicely, given the circumstances. I was going to search for a picture of ManBearPig but I haven't the stomach.

    Re: Global WarmingGate

    So whatever happened to Publius, anyway? I'd love to hear him trying to claim his mantle of SCIENCE seven years after his initial snobbery.



    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the judge is making Michael Mann re-start his defamation suit against National Review Online (Mark Steyn explicitly) for quipping that he "molested" his data and that Penn State was covering it up. Turns out "the Jerry Sandusky of Climate Science" lied about his credentials...

    If you guys could moderate your Winter over there, then maybe my house in the UK won't get blown away in the storms they are having there.

    I may need that house again one day! :shakes fist:

    Re: Global WarmingGate

    Back to the topic: Jmervyn, Is posting #213 the reason why you don't believe in global warming or is it more like having fun about a random number from the weather lottery?

    I'm no firm believer of man-made global warming (although I'm less of a non-believer), but I'm much more wary about journalists, politicians, lawyers and lobbyists than of scientists. If there is global warming, then let's hope it's man-made.

    OT
    I think it's Inefficient so reduction is good but more for Air pollution than warming as it still Insignificant.
    The Sun is the source of longterm trends.

    LOL silly me
    Polar Vortex in U.S. May be Example of Global Warming

    Saw this image today and it made me smile because of some of the funny clips doing the rounds of Fox news over the last few days. Some of the statements were not far off from this actual quote. I kid you not.
