I have had so many conversations with people that still believe in global warming and climate change as it was proported, it amazes me. I in my arguments against it have had no real training or casual knowledge in climate/weather only the knowledge that the #s had been manipulated (proved) and carbon emission CO2 directly effecting the world in a negetive way was utter bull. As I had been involved with ADM in the 70s with the first hydoponics experiments in central Illinois. So I have seen the resut of hi CO2 content applied to plants.
I was only an observer involved in the pumping systems, not the science.
Soooooo. In my quest. I ask the great google brain about forecasting. And I ended up at this site.

www climate4you.com

It is, with out a dought, the most interesting site on weather I have ever come across.
When you first go to it. Check out the forecast tab on the left.
Opening the rest has been such a learning experience and a wealth of info....
The climate and Volcanoes tab.. Real studys and data of climate impact.

Man would I love to shove these real charts in Al Gores.......face.

So, you are happy to point out that your position is not based on science.
Why have you posted it on a science forum?

Not being a Latin scholar, I had to look up "Nullius in verba". I found this:
Quote
“Nullius in verba”, which is the Latin motto of the Royal Society of London, the UK’s national academy of science, means literally :"On the words of no one"...
In fact the motto of the Royal society points out that we must believe in the words of nobody, but we have to use science to establish “the truth of scientific matters through experiment rather than through citation of authority”.
So I guess we had better take a look at the science...
