I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

"24,210 published articles dealing with "global warming" or "climate change" from 2013-2014 by 69,406 authors"

"five articles, by four authors, rejected anthropogenic global warming"

WOW 1:4,842 articles; 1:17,351 authors rejected anthropogenic global warming

Comment by Grinning Cat on May 9, 2016 at 3:10pm

Only "questionable" through the lens of "fossil fuels and the free market will cure all ills." Otherwise there's virtual unanimity that climate change is real, human-caused, and dangerous.

"Do 97% of Scientists Really Agree on Climate Change? Nope. It’s More Like 99.9%, Says Expert"

(Dr. James Lawrence Powell, executive director of the National Physical Science Consortium, reviewed 24,210 published articles dealing with "global warming" or "climate change" from 2013-2014 by 69,406 authors. Only five articles, by four authors, rejected anthropogenic global warming. Excluding self-citations, only one of those articles was cited, and that one just once.)

It's not the fact of global warming that's contested Ruth it's the mechanism driving it that's questionable.

Wrong word, Susan ... "think" ... as in he doesn't really WANT to.

Comment by Susan Stanko on March 13, 2016 at 8:42am

He really think that only NASA has done studies?  I

Comment by Loren Miller on March 12, 2016 at 10:43am

Just had some no-nothing jackass in a chat room try to tell me that anthropocentric climate change is a hoax and that NASA has been fudging data!  Oh, but he doesn't want to talk politics!  CLUELESS FUCKING JERK!!!

Thanks Grinning Cat, a very clear cycle!
