I found these comments about one of my comments on this site:-http://getsatisfaction.com/350org/topics/enemy_of_350_movement
The original comment was posted at http://blog.nurturenatureproject.com and Heather, obviously a little disturbed by such a difficult request has passed my comment on to Alex who appears to be an employee of “350.org” and maybe I have been classified as an Enemy of 350.org .
They are obviously uncomfortable with the question and discuss how to answer it.
Alex replies ” He’s also asking for direct causation, which scientifically is impossible. We can’t create a planet in a laboratory and isolate only one thing. ”
which is quite true, but if the facts were there, there are other ways to come to a proof.
To me, Alex’s reply istantemount to an admission that there is no proof of AGW something I can agree with whole heartedly. Then he goes on to say that “we just have to trust the majority consensus of scientists.”
What consensus is that?!
If any readers wish to explore this non factual notion of consensus please look at the links under “Petitions on Anthropogenic Global Warming” on my blog http://www.rogerfromnewzealand.wordpress.com

——————————————-I will join you if you can find me an academic paper showing reasonable proof of the “Anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis by at least one of the following methods.
at least one of the following.1 Empirical proof that shows the causation factor of CO2 with respect of Global Warming.2. Statistical proof of Anthropogenic CO2. In case you dont know it, correlations are never proof.
3. Evidence for the “Anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis to be adopted over the null hypothesis?
(Now you may need a little reading to understand what these things are. Here is a site which describes what is needed for #3 which might help. http://www.experiment-resources.com/n…)
If you are unable, then this is suggest very strongly that we are all being conned and you are participating in it.
ps this comment and your answer will be posted under your url at http://www.globalwarmingsupporter.wor…
I was wondering if you are aware of this person and have developped a rebuttal.
PS if you are interested in any academic papers (peer reviewed and published) that contradict the IPCC sources, I can help you there as well.
BTW, Skeptical Science simply rely on correlations and models with built in assumptions of AGW for their “proofs”
