Thank you, Buddha, for expressing your democratic values by banning me from the OWS chat room for expressing dissenting views on global warming.

Of course, the IPCC, a panel in the UN, is filled with scientists... oh wait, they're not? Of course, everyone on the IPCC agrees on global warming... oh wait, they don't? Of course, the IPCC accounts for other environmental factors like water vapor, sun activity, etc... oh wait, it doesn't?

Thanks for the banning. The democratic process is alive in OWS.

Kahn, your statement that "there is just as much science" around global warming NOT being man-made is absolutely untrue. More than 95% of the scientists who have weighed in believe that industry is the cause of, or at the very least rapidly speeding up, global warming.

We are in fact changing the climate of the entire planet.

Not that the IPCC is needed in order to form beliefs on global warming. You shouldn't have been banned, though, in my opinion.
