RW dismisses climate change as only a theory and not a fact
and therefore should not be believed as totally true.
Ergo, is gravity not also a theory? Should we wait until it is considered a fact? Will we fall from earth if we do not believe?
I mean, theoretically.

6. Forget climate change.
It's like peeing in the pool. I don't care if the temp in the pool goes up at all. It is all dirty, stinking pollution fouling up the Earth. Let em deny that one.

7. RWers dismiss actual facts
and just make things up as they go. And this is a fact. No theory. Another fact, Grassley must go.

12. I'm inclined to agree...
...with clarkkent2100. The whole global warming movement appears to be on the ropes given the admissions of the leading climate scientist, that essentially, "the dog ate my homework" and the onslaught of RW radio & TV playing it up, not to mention the absence of Al Gore, Leonardo diCaprio, and others that were (until recently) on the point for Global Warming. Even the U.N.'s Climate Change chief is backtracking. The only credible guy getting air time is Bill Nye, but he's too damned polite with his graphs & bow-tie.

13. Science gives you so much they don't question
Edited on Sat Feb-27-10 11:35 PM by StClone
Like medicine. Computers. Cell phone. Car technology. Do they believe those work? Why is it when a big industry like oil Corporations tell them that they need protecting they can convince you against what Science tells you.

14. I'm inclined to agree...
...with the science and the science says that GW is occurring and is largely due to human activity. A mistake or two in the non-science portion of the IPCC or a couple of rude scientists (and they had ample reason to be rude, imo) doesn't change the science a jot.

Anyone who thinks otherwise needs a refresher course in processing reality.

11. Theory/Fact: most RWers have no idea what distinguishes the two
and what the two have in common.

I can't even argue with these assholes until they learn what the words mean.

15. Exactly. They're so stupid they think a scientific theory means 'a guess'.
When it's actually compiled from data, observation, and experiments. A scientific theory is as close to a fact as science can get.

Unlike religion, which is nothing but a bunch of contradictory beliefs based on poorly written thousand year old books.

16. That's what my Republican Neighbor always sez.
Yet every fall when I see him on his roof cleaning gutters, He won't take the bait
when I ask 'em to jump.

He obviously believes in the THEORY of Gravity, But I'm gonna keep trying, Who knows ?

17. Everything is theory. No facts.
People using that argument have no idea what the word theory means, though.
