Pretty much any actual science that makes someone look bad, Dr.

that the overwhelming majority of scientists are for sale and will
do everything they can do promote this "hysteria" in order to gain
grant monies or "be fired."

This must explain why the present administration is buisily engaged
in censoring the reports coming out of NASA; must explain why they
actively censor their OWN reports from their OWN EPA departments.

But I know what he would reply to both of my above statements.

"These scientists are looking ahead to when they wont be working
for the government, so they lie now in order to get future grants."

Sorry for this phony quote, but I am sick and tired of labeling the
entire field of scieince as for sale, and THIS while Exxon Moble
publicly offers money to people to "refute" global warming.

Both of you are missing the entire point of my post, which is to
look at the science itself, not the personalities behind the
hysteria. If I have gotten any facts wrong, point them out. If not,
the numbers speak for themselves, and no amount of blather can
change those numbers. Human activity can contribute to no more than
0.117% of the greenhouse effect.

Do you understand that?

Of course I understand it. Oversimplified blather is usually easy to understand. But, Tom Fid said it better than I could below:

CO2 has increased at least 25%, not the 2.33% he states. It has gone from 180-300 PPM to 375 PPM, this increase can be traced to us human types. Period. Some from those SUV's, some from just burning forests. Any amount it increases that causes any warming ALSO increases the amount of that "800 pound gorilla" water vapor in the air due to greater evaporation.

Or, as my father would have said, "figures don't lie but liars can figure". The "science" you quoted is of a level to be expected from someone that sells whatever result his clients ask for.
