'Just a warning, since many people are incapable of having a civilized discussion on the long-term effects of emissions on the climate, "global warming" is a banned subject on TDIClub. If this conversation degrades into a crapstorm, corrective action will be taken.'
I thought this was mildly amusing since TMC has managed to make it a sticky thread... kinda the opposite of a banned subject. Although things do get contentious from time to time... well done mods
On another note; SLATE makes a good point in regards to the AP referencing AGW deniers as 'doubters'... Most of them don't 'doubt' anything... they are very certain that AGW isn't happening. That's the compete opposite of 'doubt'.
