    Because Lurch doesn't have that "you're such a jackass" attitude.

    And ditto!

    Yeah, it's entirely possible that i've got it in spades, and am just very adept at hiding it.

    Waiting on your quotes, Shuny. Or your best efforts to prove your false accusation that my 'agenda' is "opposition to Global Warming caused by humans".

    OR, you could just admit you overshot the runway and offer an apology.

    Let us hear you in your own words support the fact that humans are the major cause of global warming.

    The Lurch and I agree that the primary cause of Global Warming is human production of CO2, and the necessary actions needed to reduce the human impact of Global Warming.

    We disagree that our efforts can actually reverse the trend. If you read the whole report by UN it outlines the extreme efforts needed to reverse the human impact, and it is pessimistic as to whether our human efforts can meet the criteria described. In large part due to the fact that many still oppose the concept of human global warming, increased demands due to increase in population, and simply many refuse to believe the efforts are worthwhile. Yes, the report by many scientists from all over the world propose that all efforts possible need to be implemented to reduce the human impact, but it concluded that we must also find ways to adapt and benifit where possible from the changing climate.

    This is called deflection. It is a strong indicator that you are unable to prove your accusation.

    The burden of proof is yours as accuser - so prove it with a quotation. You have no right to demand a statement until and unless you prove your accusation true.



    Also, Lurch took issue with your mischaracterization of the 'scientific consensus' as agreeing with you that intervention isn't going to work - you still owe a proof or a retraction on that.


    Annnd we're still waiting for your 'more to come'...
