I'm a sceptic now, says ex-NASA climate boss

Denial of scientific reality from non-scientists

> It might be possible to get the impression, reading the Reg, that there's a firm editorial policy at Vulture Central denying that climate change exists,...

Yes, I get that impression because there is no other reasonable conclusion to draw for anyone who has spent any time reading about climate science.

Your editorial policy of denial, cherry-picking of data points, non-scientific and erroneous analysis of scientific data puts you squarely amongst a selection of right wing blogs and 'independent' (i.e. oil-funded) 'think tanks' in the USA.

Every national science academy of every major industrialised country on the planet confirms recent climate change is due to human activity. Presumably you believe that, like the Hadley Centre, they are all lying in order to protect and secure funding? The blind delusion required to believe that tens of thousands of scientists in dozens of countries are all lying in unison is laughable.

After over two of years of reading about climate change, it's become very obvious where the truth lies: with the scientists. The other side, the deniers, use the same tools that every crackpot political ideology uses - lies, distortion, Dunning Kruger effect and wilful ignorance.

El Reg should stick to 'witty' commentary on IT, because there's not a staff member with the competence or honesty to cover the science of climate change.

Are the ice caps melting?

Cherry-picked quotes and data points to continue the author's continuing crusade to refute the global scientific consensus of anthropogenic climate change.

The Reg is being irresponsible in giving column inches to this armchair scientist and his denial-of-reality campaign.

No cables on monitors. All the birds stay in camera view - real life (tm), they'd have legged it. Partitions cannot be just pulled apart with your bare hands - have a go.

C'mon Reg, we expect more critical scepticism from your hacks.

The Jim Corr Show

I'm looking forward to a regular series of articles from Jim, including:

* Moon landings? All a hoax

* Elvis? Living on the moon

* Alien abductions and how to avoid them

* Dominate the stock market with astrology

* Evolution? Just a theory

* Goat sacrifice? It works, bitches

Jim Corr: pushing forward the boundaries of human knowledge.

Gordon Brown claims a Brit invented the iPod

Mono Ape

Political rapier

Jeremy Paxman says "I'm confident my tenure is secure from Fern Britton's recent challenge".

In other news, committed Christian, Gordon Brown, declares reality-based thinking a pernicious influence and vows to push forward with his science-free view of how Yahweh wants us to wear our underpants.

Eejits. The lot of them. Apart from that Brit who invented the iPod.

Amsterdam spin...

(one of the) Anon Cowards: "Amsterdam...? Oh, you mean the place where they've admitted that a comprehensive strategy is needed to ameliorate the social and personal effects of their previously liberal drugs policy?"


Perhaps your evidence-free assertion has something to do with the localised problems in Amsterdam where a large quantity of the planet congregate in order to smoke a joint in peace? Problems exacerbated by the lure of prostitutes and low level crims who congregate to take advantage of all those stoners? Or maybe the problems in Amsterdam are just a problem relative to the rest of chilled out Holland?

Excellent article which shines a bright light on the political expediency at play here. The science-free, Daily Mail thinking of Smith+Smith and dishonest justifications are all we expect, know and love from the average vote-grubbing politician.

When do we get to vote them out? http://www.libdems.org.uk/news/story.html?id=14286&navPage=news.html

P.S. Can The Reg add a doobie icon to the post selection?

Evolution and denial

"Problem is, all Linux distribututions suck badly on the desktop."

And you tried which distro when?

I've installed Ubuntu on 7 dekstops to date, ranging from PIII 384MB to Core2 2GB - solid, reliable, and perfect for the average email / surf user / Skyper (inc. webcam). The eye candy (with Compiz Fusion and a reasonably new graphics card) shames anything available on the competition.

The denial of those who evidently haven't used the latest Linux distros matches the denial of evangelicals when faced with the fact of evolution. ;)

Turkey probes The God Delusion for 'insulting religion'

(One of the) Anonymous Cowards: "I don't do god at all but nor do I get tied up in being anti-god. It's all irrelevant."

Where to start? Oh, I don't know - 11 September 2001, perhaps? Maybe you didn't have access to a TV on that day (or the intervening 6 years)?

OK, you obviously have internet access. Do some searches for things like "sudanese teddy bear", "saudi woman raped jailed", "danish comics muhammad", "faith schools england creationism".

Read. Think. Then come back here and tell us that 'god is irrelevant'.
