Bruno, Thanks for the ad hominum attack. It clearly demonstrates the 
contentiousness of what is becoming an almost religious subject. The 
continental drift and plate tectonics argument of the late 1950s 
never quite reached this level, however, it did not involve the 
public and/or politicians or biologists. Clearly the AGWs like the 
skeptics have their own litany of  "well-worn" attack modes as well. 
Cherry picking  data and blogs is rampant on both sides. There are so 
many to pick from. Which to pick usually comes down to who pays the 
rent. I wish I was funded to do it. Like I said, I get blasted with 
blogs from both sides of the issue everyday and try to stay near the 
    As I recall the original question was why is the Copenhagen 
meeting becoming a flop. Maybe we should stick to the original 
question.  Gene
