Rob Runkle: I've not read anything of substance you have posted on this topic. What I have read, instead, is a lot of petty nasty sniping and potshots, most with a poorly disguised gloss of superiority. Why don't you spend your time more productively by finding some credible information that supports your overtly politicized position, and posting it here for us to read? Me thinks the problem is that you are having a hard time finding something.rob runkle wrote:Why would anyone who is seriously interested in the topic of global warming even bother looking at a few musings prepared by a ex-vice president on the topic? This appears to be consistent with the well-established trend of global warming proponents having to resort to citing "experts" such as Leonardo Decaprio, Brad Bitt, Rosie O'Donnell and the like. <Sorry I don't have any disclaimers from Gore on the topic.

Covrider... You had to know that you would get this kind of response (like from tundraline). Some people just don't understand that data anaylsis and modeling does not necessarily require one be an expert on the subject. You should have seen this one coming from a mile away Cov... :D
BTW, I'm neither a Republican nor a Democrat, so your neat little vision of the world being split into red and blue camps doesn't work. Both parties are essentially worthless, IMHO. FWIW, I am also quite confident that my understanding of scientific data and its analysis is substantially deeper than yours. On that basis, I therefore place you in the category of those who "just don't understand" data analysis and modeling. But you might be able to prove me wrong. Please have at it.
