You're right!

Anybody who's taken Business Statistics knows that any number one's using to prove a point can be rebutted with another contradictory number.

I laugh when people say "Well, you wouldn't get hurt if you didn't ride at all", which my reply is "Well, tell that to all the people who's died in car accidents".

Yeah well people slurp up global warming "facts" without questioning them either.



You ever notice when you roll up on your bike a complete stranger will immediately tell you about someone who was killed or maimed on a motorcycle?



My sister has two close friends. One was jogging, the other was bicycle riding. They were both mowed down by a drunk driver. One is dead, the other is a vegetable.



If you're out jogging, no one will come up to you and tell you about their friend who was killed jogging.



It's easy to believe what you want to believe, especially if it makes "sense."



Whatever happened to those people who told us to question authority?



They became authority and now can't be questioned!

The three kinds of lies. When discussing death statistics I keep in mind we all will be one, one way or another, eventually.



I wish people that don't seem to do a good job of running their lives (or the Country) would stop trying to use statistics to tell me how to live mine.

Should I liven things up? I could? Just say the word...When I took journalism class there was this rule about validating your information with two sources... Do they still teach that? On the statistics thing I could fire a salvo... Just say the word...

You're right. The earth has been the exact same temp. since the beginning of time. The exact same species have existed since the beginning too. No changes at all.



It's only W and SUVs that changed everything!



Now that you've got the resident idiot on your side do you feel any better about your comments?



Remember, don't question anything the UN tells you. The list of UN success stories is so long I can't believe I questioned anything either. Sorry.

First I saw the "moron (like one who doubts global warming..." and thought what an astute jab at the current administration and then saw "the earth is flat" part and wasn't sure W is a flat earther.



Then I read it again and it seems you are saying "authority" is the opposite of "moron". It seems a particularly problematic time to make that assurtion. Maybe if you contrast "moron" or "authority" in this context with "an authority"?

let see the UN, EPA Click here Buz, NOAA, International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), American Association for the Advancement of Science, UK's Royal Meteorological Society, National Academy of Sciences, etc. all say there is evidence of global warming.

but O'Rielley and Fox News says it ain't so so Buz believes it

You are correct when implying that the earth temperature has fluctuated significantly in the past. It is funny how you accept that fact although it was established by the exact same scientists who present us with overwhelming data indicating that human activity is largely to blame for the recent upward trend in temperature. Perhaps you should question yourself once in a while.

Nice move using the attack the messanger i.e call the guy an idiot by saying I'm an idiot. typical ORielly technique.. See George Soros on Fox last night cleaned their clock.. Argue the facts and data... Attack the idea not the person.
