If you aren't a warmist then you must be mentally ill and your opinions can be safely ignored?
Sounds like just what the frothinggreenies ordered!

Of course we have had an impact on global warming, it's a sealed system and everything effects everything else.
What this shows is that temperatures have been far higher (and lower) in the past before we started burning fossil fuels on a large scale.
Also that the "MWP doesn't exist" crowd did cherry pick the data to hide their "inconveient truth".
I'm not a denier, I am a climate cynic.
I would be interested to know who financed this research. I will lay bets it was not "big oil" but a government and I will also lay bets that this is the last we hear of it as it does not suppor t more taxes!
Now is the time for some uber-boffin to work out some way to slow the rock enough that it can be trapped in orbit.
Then we can start mining it.
Hopefully it's full of rare earths - we don't really need another 260kT of iron oxide.
Once we've done it once and if it's viable we can work out how to get rok's from the asteroid belt back here.
Mine's the one with "Earth first - we can strip mine the rest of Solar System later" across the back.
I was being generous with the century or so. Any politician involved is only interested in the next term of office and the climate so called "scientists" in the next funding round.
Me? If I last another half century it'll be a surprise (more so to some people than others) so century - tens of millenia? doesnt really matter that much.
Either way, planet Earth will manage, with or without us.
In all fairness it probably is caued by elevated CO2.
CO2 +sunlight ----algal photosynthesis--> O2 + more algae.
It., like climate change will balance out over the next century or so, with or without our interference.
But the facts never stopped the warmists before.
The MWP did not appear in the heavily cherry picked and massaged data used from Siberia/Urals (one area).
However there is evidence supporting the MWP for Europe, North America, Africa, Middle East, Asia Pacific.......
So not global at all huh?
How about a forum wide scoring table giving a list of posts that have scored particularly high - or low - in upvotes/downvotes as this will give an idea of what topics are interesting people.
Perhaps giving all time as well as in the past month.
Not that I am competitive in anyway shape or form honest (46 upvotes is the best I have managed on a single post)
Oh really and your rebuttal is ?
A simple google of aspartame formaldehyde - discounting any wikibased entries to avoid being accused of "wikisalting" produces (amongst others):
This experiment was conducted in 1997. It has been repeated many times and yet, ignored by Monsanto and the FDA. The study proves that there are significant amounts of the chemical, formaldehyde in Diet Coke - more if the pop has been stored at room temperatures or higher (and it's often stored in hot warehouses in the South and Southwest). A 2000 JAMA study established that intaking even trace amounts of formaldehyde, can cause damage to several areas of the body, yet this is Monsanto's excuse - "yes we know diet pop has formaldehyde in it but it's in such small amounts as to not be dangerous". Aspartame/Nutrasweet is in some 6000 foods and OTC medications. Formaldehyde is on the FDA list of cancer causing chemicals. On some foods, nutrasweet is not listed however, all foods having nutrasweet in them must carry a warning about "phenoketinuria". If you see this warning, you might want to say "no" to the food or medication.
Now put up or shutup.
The Terrorism Act 2000 defines terrorism so as to include not only violent offences against persons and physical damage to property, but also acts "designed seriously to interfere with or to seriously disrupt an electronic system" if those acts are (a) designed to influence the government or to intimidate the public or a section of the public, and (b)be done for the purpose of advancing a political, religious or ideological cause.
Lets see :
"seriously disrupt an electronic system" - forcing us to power generation that will lead to rolling brownouts? I'd say that was serious disruption of the Grid let alone houseolders own ring main.
So by this, it would seem that anyone who is anti-nuclear and pro-renewables (such as Greenpeace) should be considered a terrorist.
And yes I do support the actions of the Met.
You only ever hear of the mistakes, not the successes in these situations.
