Even a 100% die hard skeptic would respect a scientific statement that the chances of the Texas fire and Russia fire last year being a normal fluctuations is 0.13%.
No such equivocation attends a Goddard Institute for Space Studies appraisal of the heat wave that assaulted Texas, Oklahoma, and northeastern Mexico last summer. Their report represents a sea change in high-level climate studies in that they boldly assert a causal link between specific weather events and global warming. The Texas heat wave, like a similar one in Russia the previous year, was so hot that its probability of occurring under “normal” conditions (defined as those prevailing from 1951 to 1980) was approximately 0.13%. It wasn’t a 100-year heat wave or even a 500-year one; it was so colossally improbable that only changes in the underlying climate could explain it. [emphasis mine]
House Elf's are very cool! Hey I'm sorry to hear about the hostility on the site. I just reported a troll not too long ago. The troll was removed from the site. I hope things get better on the site for you.
David, I did not realize there was hostility on this site. I know how miserable that is, having been a target of some pretty nasty stuff from someone who disagreed with me. I read many of your comments, although I am very behind on reading mail. Is there some group that I could receive you comments? Don't want to lose you.
Hello David. Saw that you posted this discussion on Google, which I fully support. Anytime you want to share anything from me, I will fully support. But what I want to know is how can I get to this on Google to view it. Thanks for the help, my friend, and have a great day.
Hay David, very nice to see you are involved in the forums. I wanted to give you a little insight on Madhukar - here and here. I grew tired of discussing with him, I don't care much what he has to say about other topics, but when it comes to LGBT issues I want Nexus to be the fully welcoming place that it is. Cheers.
Hi David, and welcome to this wonderful world of rationality, truth and peace.
Unbiased common sense, helped by science, leads to happy freethinking wisdom as you have found out.
