A Study of Global Warming: Jump List of References
June 23, 2006 by Seth

I am ashamed to admit that i have not studied the literature sufficiently to be convinced that global warming is a real problem that needs to be urgently addressed.   Consequently i have started this jump list to put the literature i find in one place in a organized fashion. 

I have chosen (arbitrarily ) the icon "" to label references which supports the bolded proposition, and "" to label references which do not.  I will organize each major catagory such that what i have determined to be the most important will be listed on the top of that catagory. 

Please limit your comments on this item to helping build this organized list ... polarizing rhetoric will be deleted ... however new references and  reasoned arguments regarding my classifications or prioritizations are certainly solicited.   If a group of level headed commenters emerges, then we can form a group here or wherver and the study can continue without my dictatorial control. 
  • encyclopedic presentations
  • encyclopedic presentations
    • none that i know of yet
Sources of media and information that has not yet been classified:
Obviously this is still a very partual list.  It is a work in progress.  It will probably appear again and again in the river as i complete my inquiry.

 exxonsecrets.org Documenting Exxon-Mobil's funding of climate change skeptics. They have a list of organizations purported to be funded by Exxon-Mobile and a flash presentation.  They list Professor Bob Carter who is quoted in Scientists respond to Gore's warnings of climate catastrophe like this.

This article Scientists response to Gore from the CFP (Canada Free Press) - gives a balancing view of Gore's perspective on Global Warming - please factor it in to your study.

nodes in the network of science might look like point-of-view/source-of-funds/researcher/topic/paper/date/conclusion/details/data or something like that.
Yes definitely ... something like it.  We will be getting into the scientific nodes and i am not sure how they will be structured.  My approach is to get  substance  prior to building in structure.  When the real matters emerge, the source of funds ends up being just meta information about sources and not meta information about facts and reasoning.  I'm thinking that the scientific nodes should each pose a proposition.  The content of the node should present facts, studies, and reasoning in support or against that proposition.  The objective, of course, is to arrive at a determination regarding the validity of the proposition ... it is not to just create longer and longer lists.
