comment Have western governments spent $100billion on global warming research and advocacy?
Those figures [$100B/$79B] seem remarkably similar to this claim by Nova/SPPI, which is at least sourced, though delusional.

comment Are 1 in 25 people sociopaths?
Some similar claims have been made about psychopaths. No idea if the author is attempting to talk about the same thing or not.

comment Does climate change mean that weather becomes more variable in addition to being warmer?
This question would be better if you referenced specific claims, I think.

comment Did we have a “global cooling” 40 years ago?
@vartec, I find it very easy to believe that a voice vote of scientists in the seventies would have agreed that cooling would happen "...within the next few millennia or even centuries..." but again, I don't think that's what people mean when they describe either the supposed new ice age scare or the post-1940s cooling. A lot can happen in a few million years.

comment Did we have a “global cooling” 40 years ago?
@vartec, the graphs in this answer show a short cooling period between 1940 and 1950. If you look at the Northern Hemisphere rather than the whole globe, it's more like 1940-1970. So, yes, there is scientific consensus for a short cooling period during that time. You can read more about this here. This is not the supposed "new ice age" predictions repeated in the popular press, though. It's a (mostly) accurate description of what did happen rather than a prediction about what might happen.

@vartec, did you actually read his comments on Asimov? If you did, you would have seen "Note: this is not a scientific reference. Its here as an example of the mistake that a well-read non-expert can (and did) make."

@vartec: Calling Connolley's work "commenting on two papers" is a blatant mischaracterization. He examines dozens of papers, with specific comments on at least twenty (I'm too lazy to count, but you're wrong by at least an order of magnitude). Please note that there are links in the first page. You can click them to read further. Did you read what he wrote at all?

Wood handles are also a problem in a dishwasher (like bone, apparently).

comment Is Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity an actual illness or is it another trendy diet?
That's not necessarily an either/or question. Both can be true!
