More Hotstove Goodness

I wasn't expecting it, but at the last minute - literally - I jumped in to replace Stephen Taylor (and yes, we had to some quick re-arranging of the ideological chairs) on last night's edition of the Blogger's Hotstove, starring Greg Staples, James Bow and Scott Tribe. We had a long discussion of the current motion before the house to force the government to abide by Kyoto and what that means legally, politically and whether it was good strategy for the Liberals. We jumped into the semantics (fact! belief! theory! law!) of Global Warming and had a little taste of Net Neutrality near the end.

And for those who do listen, the site on climate change that I refer to is RealClimate, a site that is "climate science from climate scientists." Especially read their FAQ, where they present the facts (yes Greg, FACTS!) around ice cores, the "hockey stick", the "Global Cooling" myth, and answer how much recent CO2 increases are due to humans (hint: all of it).

Have fun and, as always, feel free to leave comments, especially on the quality of Greg's Ross Perot imitation ("Can I finish? Can I finish!").



Hat tip to Idealist Pragmatist for pointing me to a fantastic collection of the science for and refutation of all the arguments against Global Warming or Climate Change.

Excellent resource, Mike. Here's another: How to Talk to a Climate Skeptic.
