Global Warming Debate, Split From ANWR Drilling Thread

It is strongly biased toward the GW alarmists and it is not difficult to detect that it is not neutral.


Just an observation.
Well, I can't vouch for the global warming assertions of bias, but when I look at Roe versus Wade or Intelligent Design, I see a totally objective scientific description of the facts.

If you see this differently, please explain.
By the way, your above comment is an example of attacking the messenger, not the message. You did not point out any factual errors in the Wikepedia entry on Global Warming.

The link that John L published is merely an opinion piece, which makes certain claims that may or may not be true. Dr. Fred Hansen, as I understand it, is a science writer. Perhaps the editors of Wikipedia did not consider him qualified to make the changes he says he wanted to make. In any case, his article, Wikipedia bias, does not give the reader much to work with, other than Dr. Hansen's assertions.

Hansen also suggested that the Wikipedia entries on Roe v Wade and Intelligent Design were also biased. That tells you something about Hansen's "scientific" perspective. When I looked through those entries, I found them quite objective. You did not contest this point.

Did you actually read the Wikipedia entry on global warming, to which Hansen refers?

It lists 124 notes and sources, along with listings of key scientific, educational and other links. It also provides a lengthy list of recommended reading.

Rather than make ungrounded insinuations about a particular publication, why not point out some specific statements or contested data, which the Wikipedia entry glosses over or deliberately misconstrues in its entries on Gloabal Warming, Roe v Wade or Intelligent Design, as Hansen claims?

Then we can indeed find out whether "Who is right". S1
