The climate has always changed. Only now the extreme left wants to use misinformed, and deliberately rigged "science", for total control of citizens. There is nothing wrong with the current climate, though the "experts", fueled by tax dollars, have been predicting doom since at least 1990.
Thanks from webguy4

Yet again you don't know what you are talking about. In a true double blind study, the doctors, nurses and any other participants dealing with the patients (subjects?) don't know which are getting the active ingredient and which are getting the placebo, so no hints are possible.

Mrs. RNG has been involved in several double blind studies, on both sides of the info barrier.

You brought medical doctors into the equal quadrant track and now I have to think about the difference between a prognosis and diagnosis. Is there a doctor in the house?

I was going to point out the same thing.

What webguy described is a blind study, mostly used on things like taste tests for ice cream or soda.

For the very reasons he gives they are rarely used in scientific studies and even more rarely (if at all) used in legitimate medical studies.

No kidding.

The controversy is in the degree to which man's activities, almost exclusively after the beginning of the modern industrialized era, has INFLUENCED those natural changes. Made them more frequent, more severe, etc. etc.

No one in their right fucking mind has said man's influences CAUSES climate change on a regional or global basis but rather impacts or influences it. Of course, to what degree and what can be done about it is where the controversy arises.
