The monkeys aren't too thrilled about you either in Spray Posted December 1, 2004 There is a lot of junk science and bias in the whole global warming debate. It makes it very difficult to know exactly what the whole truth is. I definitely favor more solid research in climate studies. this was a bit of my response to a flipant comment by our congressman "I don't believe it is our fault. That's an opinion," Young said. "It's as sound as any scientist's." said about a report from this group. The Arctic Climate Impact Assessment was commissioned by the Arctic Council, an international commission representing eight countries, including the United States, and six indigenous groups. About 300 scientists participated, with scientists from Alaska playing a major part. this is an international group providing overwhelming evidence that humans are influencing the arctic enviro (making it warmer) and he thinks his opinion carries as much weight. this is the same sort of thing that is going on with the whole creationist/id thing (to try and get this back OT). opinions are taking the place of science.
