Settled Science update: New way found for cloud formation

Post by kramer » Wed Feb 06, 2013 6:17 pm

The debate is over, the science is settled...
Organic Gases Help Cloud Formation
Organic gases gases coat aerosolized particles in the atmosphere, enhancing their potential to form cloud droplets. Karen Hopkin reports.

Clouds. They’re fluffy, white, and full of mystery. [Song lyric: I really don’t know clouds at all.] Although scientists may have a better handle on clouds, even they don’t know it all.
[Wait, what?... If they don't know it all, then why the eff are we entrusting their 'science' that policymakers want to leverage in order to force radical life-style changes on us, redistribute our wealth to the third world, create global institutions to regulate the use of natural resources, etc...?]



Because a new study shows that atmospheric gases can help clouds form in a way no one had ever considered. That’s according to a report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. [Neha Sareen et al, Surfactants from the gas phase may promote cloud droplet formation]

Wow, you really don't understand science!

Hmmm, you're low information is showing. Let me raise it for you a tiny bit:


"The science is settled, Gore told the lawmakers."
- NPR, March 2007
"The debate is over..."
- The Item - Apr 16, 1993

So, now that you see people from YOUR side of this issue said these things, do you think they don't understand science?
