      i doubt it... whether it is being used wisely however is probably up for debate.

        Poster starts account, immediately puts up questionable thread, has a clickbait title worse than darker sides of youtube, and then the subsequent related posts. Wonder whats going on here..

          6 posts by MrCombust since joining 3 days ago, all of them climate squawking.
          Get comfortable. I'm just gettin' started.
          Yeah, we all sense that. How long did it take to achieve combustion the last go round?

              Well to be honest most of your posts have no teeth anyway.

                  Welcome to connect2edmonton, MrCompost!

                  I won't add my views on climate change to this discussion but I will state that I'm in solid agreement with Noodle's opinion here on this thread.

                  That's pretty much proof to me that Hell has frozen over.

                      Because MrCombust felt the need to troll for attention.

                        that might be what started it but it's still here because we keep rising to take the bait...

                              No, it's for TRUTH - the caps make it feel more truthy to folks who tend to think everyone else but people they agree with are wrong. Caps are popular with various marketers too.

                                The TRUTH about climate change. NASA's credibility and the fake consensus.

                                Hello Edmonton and fellow Albertans. In this post I'm going to address NASA's credibility, and the credibility of the consensus.

                                Under the heading "FACTS", and "Scientific Consensus", NASA claims that "Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree*: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities."
                                https://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/

                                Let's take a look and see if it's THE TRUTH.

                                NASA lists this paper as a reference: P. T. Doran & M. K. Zimmerman, "Examining the Scientific Consensus on Climate Change," Eos Transactions American Geophysical Union Vol. 90 Issue 3 (2009), 22; DOI: 10.1029/2009EO030002.
                                Of course there are others, but I can't address them all in one post, I will get to others in due time.
                                Here's the survey available online, lets check it to see if it represents what NASA says it does............
                                http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...9EO030002/epdf


                                The survey asks two questions:
                                1. When compared with pre- 1800s levels, do you think that mean global temperatures have generally risen, fallen, or remained relatively constant?
                                2. Do you think human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures?


                                We can see immediately that question 2 doesn't meet the criteria "Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities."
                                "Significant contributing factor" could mean anything. 10% could be "significant" to some scientists. It's an undefined term.

                                10,257 scientists were "surveyed", but in the body of the paper we see this result:
                                Of these specialists, 96.2% (76 of 79) answered “risen” to question 1 and 97.4% (75 of 77) answered yes to question 2.


                                So the survey doesn't even ask a question that represents the claim, and the 97% consensus isn't even based on 97 scientists.

                                They want us to commit monumental effort to abate "climate change", costing us untold amounts of money. If climate change is real, does this survey really represent the "consensus"?
