US Government scientists: US drought not from global warming

Postby kramer » Sat Apr 13, 2013 1:53 pm

WASHINGTON (AP) — Last year's huge drought was a freak of nature that wasn't caused by man-made global warming, a new federal science study finds.

Scientists say the lack of moisture usually pushed up from the Gulf of Mexico was the main reason for the drought in the nation's midsection.

I wonder how many articles were written since last summer that claimed the drought was from (or influenced by) global warming? I wonder if any of the believers in the green religious order or Gaia here on this board claimed as much?

I dont' think you still understand how science works. You don't realize that a single study does is simply one input of information, not a formation of a physical law.

I don't know why you're talking about science and physical law when the topic of this thread is that last year's drought wasn't caused by global warming.

According to how many studies? One?

Well that's it--stop all the research!

Wait, what?!... You created a thread titled "Six Persistent Scientific Conspiracy Theories," but the article contained not a single science study. All it contained was a single poll result and with this non-scienticfic information, you want ahead and created a thread with it and in the science section no less.

So the question is, how come it's ok for you to use a single non-scientific poll result to create a thread while its not ok for me to create a thread with a single actual government science study?

Is the Dunning-Kruger effect making you think that your intelligence is much more superior to mine and hence I don't know what I am posting but you do?

I have read that the drought came about because of a 500 year cycle.
Who in their right mind uses a welcome sign to mean people who would come into their home uninvited, paid by their neighbors who are using their illegal labor, overrun the neighborhood, and refuse to leave?

One. You don't understand the idea of synthesis or consensus. You mistakenly perceive single studies as presenting ultimate truth (as long as, of course, they match your political opinions.)

I do in 99.9% of the other fields of science.

Wow. Your post on "Six Persistent Scientific Conspiracy Theories" was based on a single poll and yet you had no problem posting it as if it was established truth. Why? Because it matched your preconceived political notions.

Yet your attacking my post as if it was meaningless because it was based on a single report by government scientists. Unbelievable.

About all I can conclude is that most of what I post on this topic must wad your tin foil panties up so tight up the crack of your democrat that you can't breath and hence don't think very clearly. I can picture you: spittle and foam shooting out of your mouth while your body moves from jerking your knees because you're worried that your big mommy global government to give us a socialist green utopia and take care of you is in danger not materializing from what us skeptics find and post... Do I have it right?... :D

Again, you demonstrate your lack of differentiation between media and science. That too has tripped you up many, many times.

And again you demonstrate hypocrisy in thinking it's perfectly fine using a news article based on a single poll for your 'science' thread but criticize this thread because the article I sourced quotes a single US government science report.

And then you have the stupidity to claim I don't know the difference between media and science after you use a poll result as science. Astounding.

Next time I'll find a single poll result and use it as 'science.' The way climate 'science' is being done, it might turn out to be more accurate.

Not with you because you like to make pronouncements.
