So, it's happened again...

This time, it's Al Gore getting a Nobel Peace Prize for his work on "Global Warming." It's being shared with the UN IPCC committee (Is that redundant?).

The last time that this has been tried was when the Nobel Committee gave researchers a prize for claiming that CFCs were destroying ozone.

It's an argument from imputed strength. An illustrious organization agrees with someone, so they must be right.

I mean Al Gore must be right -- after all, the Nobel Prize isn't political, right? CFCs must destroy ozone, the Nobel Prize Committee knows their stuff, don't they?

Bah. They're a bunch of isolated, aristocratic, Lefties and commies. (He says having done no specific research. ;^)

No research? And what do you call your decade or so of doing ozone soundings? Don't sell yourself short, friend.

Reality here is that there are a number of testable hypotheses that are NOT coming out as the CFC and global warming people would have predicted. You don't need a Ph.D. to point that out.

(I meant no research into the Pinkos' backgrounds. :^)

This, I believe is a good example of the "cascading" that is mentioned in your articles about heart disease and fat consumption. I.E., a bunch of smart people disagree with me, so maybe I'm wrong?
