Default Greenhouse gases 150 years of research.

Tyndalls-1861-Lecture.pdf (I understood its up for a limited time)

It was 150 years ago that John Tyndall, one of history's truly great physicists, published a scientific paper with the far-from-snappy title On the Absorption and Radiation of Heat by Gases and Vapours, and on the Physical Connexion of Radiation, Absorption, and Conduction.

A bridge too far .

Most skeptics do not dispute that CO2 may cause some degree of
global warming under appropriate conditions .

The issue is "how much warming" ?

Once again we see the same slur against skeptics "they deny science" .

It is easy to put up a straw man and then knock him down , but much
harder to engage in honest scientific debate . Sadly the BBC has again
chosen smear over substance .

All paper is a short position on gold . “Gold is money. Everything else is credit.”

“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.” ( Noam Chomsky )

‘you can judge a man’s spirit by the amount of truth he can tolerate.’ .... Nietzsche
