We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I was always a skeptic because the AGW zealots talk stupid and crazy. They talk about green house gases that trap heat. If you have taken a course in thermodynamics you know this is stupid talk. A green house works by preventing convection and gases don't trap heat. Next they claim they are able to predict the future and control the climate. These are extraordinary claims so I want to see some examples where they have successfully done this. There aren't any. They are just talking crazy.
Anyone who has had to take an advanced quantitative methods class (advanced statistics) knew immediately, upon reading anything about the hockey stick, that AGW was wrong. Always nice to see an article from another professional disagreeing with the eco-Nazis.
