Low flier still at it:
anti-science voters.
Well don't worry it looks like the poll is about to fixed. Just as soon as they get the right answer. It will be frozen, a lit like the Antarctic.

That's interesting: last night, there were about 800 for and 4000 agin. This morning, it's closer to 50/50.

I think Gordon Brown's just exercised his block vote. "That's 6 million for tea, 2 million for coffee, then".

Bah! the press and media are all part of the same conspiracy.
I have seen the future and it's shite, you youngster will have your salaries or wages such as they are paid directly to the government who will hand you a little pocket money depending on how much muck you shifted on the vast National Farm the UK will have become,you will live in 10,000 place dormatery huts along with the other 300,000,000 citizens and get a bowl of rice a day cooked when the French switch on the electricity for a hour a day.
I am very very glad I was born when I was.

Lies, damn lies and statistics.

.. and what would you like the results to show.

The pseudo-science of 'climate change' has now become a religion..

... Not that I want to tread on your professional toes there Keef

Despite the subterfuge of a ring round/adding numbers it seems that this is also backfiring on them. Having got the numbers to almost equal the "count me out" votes have now drawn ahead by over 1,000.

One wonders when the embarrassment will cause them to pull their site.

There's a section on the site where you can add comments. I've given them a blast

I'm sure they'll add a few somewhere shortly.
Whoops, the 4 has suddenly become a 6.

The score has been ticking up steadily since 14.00 GMT today at the rate of just over 6:1 sceptic. Of course there is no way of knowing what clever hackers may be doing on either side.

The ghastly legions of global warming fluffists have been deployed,when the ice sheets commence to advance upon us again one hopeS they have the decency to do the right thing and have an accident whilst cleaning their Webleys.

No, I suspect this is a computer geek attack.

I agree with Blacksheep - statistics is the most abused subject, both here and in economics. People who quote the effect of parameter A on parameter B seem to have no concept of the difference between dependant and independant variables. For example temperature is increasing and so is carbon dioxide concentration so the assumption is made that the latter is causing the former. But what if it is the reverse that is actually happening - increased temperature (for whatever reason) is causing the temperature of the seas to rise so causing the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to increase as less carbon dioxide dissolves in water as the temperature increases. This could explain the lag in carbon dioxide concentration over temperature increase.

labrador pup,
Join the club.....

I have the impression most of us here must feel we're just kicking in wide-open doors... and then finding there are still people not coming in.

Why don't they just edit the page, for the price of a beer, to show the statistic they want their masters to read?

Works for the BoE doesn't it?

Ridiculous!! - as a 'test' I've been entering totally fictitious E-mail addresses such as [email protected] and finding my 'Out votes' readily accepted, I'm sure it'll be the same for the 'Ins'.
Rather naively I was taking this seriously and enjoying the 'Out' side mounting last night...

I am convinced.

For me, the killer observation was the increasing rate at which all-time weather records were being broken even 20 years ago. On its own, each new record was insignificant, but clearly something was on the move when so many of them started falling in such a short time.

Given the historical weather extremes, there is no conceivable weather that has not occurred previously. To argue from this that there is no need to worry is fallacious. It is the rate of change that is unprecedented. Mass extinctions are now, IMHO, probable. It will take animal and plant evolution some considerable time to re-establish a new equilibrium with the new atmosphere.

The evidence has been there for the last twenty years, and we have done almost nothing. We will eventually panic, but we will then do too little too late.

If we don't fix it, nature is going to have to fix the problem. This can only be by a serious culling of humanity. We have to be on her extinction list.

And if nature can't fix it, Earth ceases to be exceptional as a planet. We become another volcanic lump of rock.

So get out there and start planting trees - like fury.
