I don't work for an oil or gas company and I agree that anthropological climate change has largely been debunked as "settled science". 18 years of no temperature increase whatsoever and the many documented cases of "scientists" fudging data and outright lying speaks for itself.

Three themes are emerging from the newly released emails: (1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions; (2) these scientists view global warming as a political “cause” rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and (3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data.

Even if some scientist were misconstruing data that does not mean that every scientist is. Right now the current scientific consensus is that humans have impacted the Earths climate. Here is an excerpt from a more current article
Quote:
Global warming is almost certainly the fault of human beings, a new report by the United Nations climate panel states. It offers 95 percent certainty of that assertion, based on "some 2,500 pages of text and...millions of observations and over 2 million gigabytes of numerical data from climate model simulations," and it cites over 9,200 scientific papers (75 percent of which are from the last three years).

I don't know how many times I have to say that consensus does NOT equal science. Science is not up for a vote...

Yes, but in its most basic way science works through viewing observable data and then creating a hypothesis from this data. Other scientist then test this hypothesis to see if it can be reproduced over and over again. In that way a consensus is a very important part of science. Now, that doesn't mean that if a current model can be reproduced over and over again that it is 100% right. Like all things in science nothing is absolute but the current information does point to humans playing a factor in global climate change.

What? The Fukushima power plant withstood a really severe earthquake... the problems came with the wave, not because the thing was bad constructed... because it wasn't.

Its was poorly designed, the back up diesel generators were in the basement, probably the worst place to locate your emergency back up generators. If these generators had operational post tsunami and earthquake there would have been no meltdown.

There is simply so much data and analysis from thousands of scientists showing how climate change and CO2 levels are directly linked to anthropogenic means.

It were rather old reactors though that were no longer deemed completely safe compared to newer ones.

Mark 1's should've been closed down earlier all of them but well capitalist greed and the lack of replacement or funds for a replacement made it this way. Sad really but completely expected.

Umm... You ever seen what a magnifying glass does with sunlight? The Earth doesn't need any more sunlight.
