How do I get on the list, Cal ? I lose track of how many forums I visit that ream Mann a new one and run links six ways to breakfast showing that attacking 'Denierism' is political activism obscuring reasoned debate about what science can and cannot do - an essential for knowledge as opposed to belief as per Scientific Method. http://my.opera.com/oldephartte/blog/2013/03/24/denier

What was the matter with women names? Now you want first and second names? And what if you have the same name but are pointed out as being a climate denier?

Barbara K. "demons of destruction to our country. "I prefer to say the demons are these http://www.leadingtowar.com/ And BTW a period of a few years is virtually meaningless when establishing climate trends but context is good http://www.worldclimatereport.com/index.php/2012/07/13/the-heat-was-on-before-urbanization-and-greenhouse-gases/#more-547

I signed the petition. The storms are tragic; but, the video was hilarious. Technically, if a hurricane was actually named after a climate change denier, then it would be called Hurricane Michelle Bachman.
