Should you ever find yourself pondering the probability of evolution by natural selection being true:
PZ Myers: “Yes, it is quite probable that global warming has a significant anthropogenic component. About as probable as the idea that HIV causes AIDS, species diversity is driven by evolutionary processes, and that the world is round.”
For once, I quite agree with the chicken-hearted biologist. The idea that global warming exists and has a significant anthropogenic component IS about as probable as the idea that evolution by natural selection creates new species. It’s also about as probable as the reported economic recovery being anything more than a short-term statistical artifact caused by the fiscal and monetary authorities pumping a massive amount of liquidity into the financial system.
