@Paul"has always happened in long cycles and caused through nature and normal geological happenings"The operative word being "long". What's different this time is the rate of change. If you look at the Earth's entire history of life you will see that every time the climate has warmed or cooled rapidly it's lead to biological catastrophe. IN one instance extinction of over 90% of species. Basically it was tantamount to hitting the reset button. We are warming at an unusually fast rate. The sort of rate that leads to mass extinction. If it's totally due to natural processes then we're probably $#@&ed. Hopefully it is caused by our activity and hopefully we can do something about it, because that way we aren't necessarily $#@&ed.I don't know why people so desperately want this rapid rise in temperature we're seeing to be natural, because the long term implications are vastly more dire.

Why do some people like making simple things so complicated. The world's climate does change and has done since time began. Seasons change from Summer to Winter and back again every year.
Historic evidence shows, the process of 'Global Warming' and 'Global Cooling' has always happened in long cycles and caused through nature and normal geological happenings etc without the need of intervention from mankind for many millenniums.
Any 'pollution' claimed to be produced by man is minuscule when compared to that of Nature's contribution and so small in itself it's not worth including in the equation, nor is it worth worrying needlessly about like the 'Worry Warts' in society seem to enjoy doing.

I have ORDERED JK to attend Cop15 why?. As your elected leader he is required to sign away the rights of every SOLE in NZ into eternal servitude to the New World Order. The alternative, If he doesn't do this the forces of darkness will Bankrupt NZ and sell everything to the highest bidder.
What if we resist, You will be annihilated. It has nothing to do with Global Warming everything to do with eternal servitude!. :)

ClimateGate won't go away anytime soon!. CO2 doesn't drive temperature, It never has in the past!. To modify the data to fit the theory has been exposed in NZ and at CRU. The climate models have no interest in water vapor as a climate regulator. The SUN plays no part in Global Warming. No its only man made CO2, Pull the other one!.

The climate sceptics' claims have been debunked over and over. Just ignore them, people.

Well said Fitzy! Greenies HAVE most definitely been played. Now the big problem fro them is that they devoted so much of their life and energy to help promote this lie WITHOUT any real knowledge of the agenda behind it that it will be a monumental psychological mountain for them to scale just to admit to themselves that it's all false! Many will go into total denial, some will implode while others will swing wildly back & forth between the simple truth that's been exposed and the perpetual lie again. I used to get quite angry that so many had swallowed the wrong coloured pill - now I feel sorry for them and hope that healing can take place for most of them so they get a grip on reality and fight on the side of truth & good now! :)

The notion that 150 years of recent climate data could be faultless readjusted, by a select and concealing group of individuals, who peer reviewed each other( WTF?), to provide an absolutely factual snap shot of our climate, is ludicrous at best.Expert advice, can never be a substitute for genuine public discretion, public transparency and sound process. The Moment the CRU declined to release their raw data, they turned down a dark road of mysticism and dogma.That New Zealand politicians gleefully shun the scientific method in favour for a "Me First" pat on the back from the U.N crosses all political parties. Greenies you’ve been played, completely, with the ETS you get to pay for the big polluters to keep polluting.If it wasn't so sick, it would be funny.TV3, you've come very late into the fray, and apart from playing catch up, you've added almost nothing to a sound and fair debate on the issue. But you can still do some good, just bite the bullet, do some journalism. The counter evidence to AGW exists in volumes of reasonable research, but you better be quick about it. You yourselves have elevated your reporting of Climate scare stories, to a frenzied pace.Come on TV3, you use to be cool, you gave TV one the finger. Do it again and show the State you're not useful idiots, show us you're real journalists.Cheers.

Oh Come on! wrote:
The fact is the scientific consensus on climate change has been reached through the publication of thousands of peer-reviewed papers, field research and the lifetime's work of some of humanity's best minds. It's obvious these emails didn't even go through a spell-check let alone the rigorous peer-review process. Selective quoting from ten years of personal emails proves nothing.
I hope John Key does finally wake up and go to Copenhagen!
