Not Meant to Offend

After our discussion about how the Micheal Crichton Anti-Global Warming book (which I didn't even mention in the post!) and how I think people are getting influenced by incorrect data I decided to post about the Climate Securities Act after my friend Seth suggested it to me to write about. However, it seems I have offended a good friend (sorry S, I didn't mean to discount your ideas) and I thought I would say that I welcome all opinions and mine is definitely not the only one out there and most likely very biased (that's why I write a blog and not in a respected journal). I'm sure Micheal Crichton has some good points in his book that I should look at more closely and examine. I would just like to point out though that nearly all scientific data published, and basically all data published in Nature and Science, the two most respected scientific journals on earth, is cautioning about the imminent warming due to greenhouse gases. This should not be taken too lightly. Even a 1°C increase in average temperature will cause agricultural shifts that will cause real problems.

No offense to either of you, but "S" is a pussy if he/she can't argue about some stupid fucking author and not get offended.

In other news, I love Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Well yeah...sort of. She isn't exactly the blogging type of girl so writing a retort is not something she would typically do, though I'm trying to change that since discussions are the only reason I am writing this blog in the first place. And she took it as a direct assault on her beliefs (which she got from Michael Crichton) so I had to apologize.

Anyone who gets their beliefs from Michael Crichton deserves to be sterilized.
