I thought dissent was patriotic

Don't you dare question manmade global warming or you will be drummed out of the meteorological profession. Or so says Heidi Cullen.

This is what the whole debate has come to? We cannot question the conclusions for risk of being called immoral, sued, put on trial and then have our livelihoods taken away from us. Nice. I did not think science worked that way.

Meteorologists who refuse to accept the overwhelming evidence shouldn't be able to use the Meteorological Society seal of approval. Just like creationists shouldn't be biology teachers.

I don't think the Meteorological Society should be forced to have non-scientific people use their seal. Just getting a college degree is not enough.

Ah...another tactic of manmade global warming theorists is the assertion that the theory is settled science. It is far from settled science because there is so much that is unknown and unproven. There is evidence that the earth goes through warming and cooling cycles throughout its life. In fact, ice core data indicates just these cycles. Furthermore, there is indications that those that forward the manmade theory of global warming have suppressed evidence of a significant warming trend during the middle ages that rivals temperatures we are seeing now.

There is enough doubt that the scientific debate must continue. Otherwise, we risk making political choices resulting in economic disaster.
