  • Is this science?


  • #2
    Bull****. Typical right-wing dishonesty and lying. You just shat yourself, son.

    Here's the actual quote:

    On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but – which means that we must include all doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climate change. To do that we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, means getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This “double ethical bind” we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. I hope that means being both.

      No that's what he said. He said because we don't want the public to have any doubts, we just offer up catastrohpic predictions to scare people into living the way we want them to.

          Exactly.. what the man said is true. One must remain skeptical. This is why someone who tells you they know the truth is selling you something. Just like any zealot or false profit, be it preacher or scientist..

            The anti-science aspects of your dogma are your undoing.

                All the usual right-wing trogolodytes sucking Stossel sausage.

                Damned if you guys don't epitomize the Party of Stupid.

                    Its rise is accelerating.

                    Try again.

                      It's ok to lie as long as the agenda is advanced.

                        Does the level of our oceans change over the centuries or does it stay the same? Of course it does our planet is in a constant change.

                        All we can do is try to adapt.

                          What plans out there are "adapting"? All I see are the global warming is real crowd and the global warming is a hoax/it costs too much to do anything about it/you can't restrain business crowd.

                          Where are the plans to adapt?

                              Exactly. Instead the plan is to make an industry out of the hoax/paranoia and make money off it. Just like Al Gore has done. No plans to actually combat any of the dire predicitons because they won't come true.
