"When, in the course of their lives, people find they are being abused by those in position of power, and their children and their children's future are being damaged by those in power, it is the right of the people, and their sacred duty, to resist those in position of power and fight for the well-being of the young and the unborn." -Opening Paragraph of the June 23 Declaration

I just happen to run across your blog on Blogger and wanted to comment on one of the rebuttals you published to an anonomous comment. I realise this comment is a couple of years old, so if you have resolved this logically please let me know. My comment was this: I cannot believe you did not even aknowledge the Max Plank Institute in a comment made by anononomous on January 02, 2007 3:02 PM. Instead you just referred him to the IPCC, a political organization. The Max Plank Institute is a research facility that consists of many of the greatest scientific minds in the world. I cannot believe you dismissed them so lightly. I have not read the article referred to but I think it deserves some comment on the contents, if such a research article exists. You bet I will be searching for said publication for my own interpretation.

Hi snakeflake,

I have no problem with citing the Max Plank Institute. What specifically was sited and what was it in support of? If you bring back here enough of the context I will see what I can tell you.

FYI, the IPCC report uses research from that institute.
