    Obama hates white people – it is that simple

      Obama hates everyone that is not black

    • Mike Hurly says:

      You just have to love all the stupid comments below about how the weather here in this country is so cold, that global warming can’t be real…

      Newsflash …. How can people be so ignorant! Global Warming has nothing to do with how cold it is this winter or how much snow we get. It is related to the melting of the polar ice caps on the poles, as well as the shifting weather patterns. How can people make such ridiculous arguments and be so uninformed?? I am embarrassed to be an American when idiots(read below) relate scientific facts to politics. As if the rest of the world could give a sh… about Al Gore ….. really!

      How long does it take for plastic to breakdown? What about nuclear waste? How many species are we directly responsible for eliminating? How long does it take for the countless varieties of chemicals we’ve thrown out there to breakdown and become benign? Explain to me how both poles have all sorts of man-made chemicals there?

      It’s a completely ignorant, head in the sand statement to say that we humans have not effected the environment nor have a lasting impact. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ we have, it is a matter of what the full ramifications of that impact are.

      You’re right, nothing is permanent. In cosmic terms, why worry about it, right? The Sun will burn out eventually. So, hell, let’s just throw caution to the wind.

      I was just taking issue with your ‘puny’ humans having no impact on the planet. It’s so painfully obvious that we do have an impact, it’s shocking that you’d convince yourself otherwise. Hell, you can’t eat too much fish because of the Mercury content. At what point will Mother Nature ‘reverse’ that for us if we bury our heads in the sand as you seem to be telling us is the best course of action?
      I can only hope that you don’t work too hard on denying the obvious or that at least you’ll be in the small minority. I’d prefer to not have to worry about things like, “Gee, my kids already had fish this week, is it safe to let them eat it again?”

      Like I said, it’s not a matter of ‘if’, it’s a matter of what that impact means now and for the future.

      But, then again, if I keep my head in the sand with you, maybe that 800 pound gorilla in the room will go away too.

      We all know you deny global warming cause you think it’s a Dem thing… And I don’t care what Al Gore says or does. He is not a scientist. He didn’t make up the global warming issue. When I want to actually learn something scientific, the only thing to do is go to the scientists themselves. The AGW hypothesis was first proposed in 1896, but it took the advent of supercomputers and a lot of increased understanding of how the atmosphere works for scientists to get to this level of confidence that AGW is likely. I hardly think a few flippant comments by internet amateurs are going to counter that very strongly.

      • Your comment is just about the stupidest so far.

      • Andy Oz says:

        I think he is neck and neck with Reggie, Matayaya and David Appell. Who knew that extreme cold brought out so many climate trolls? Heatwaves seem to put them back in their box.

      • darwin says:

        It hasn’t warmed for about 15 years. It’s cooling. The people who make a living off of global warming are just “adjusting” the temperatures to make it look like it’s still warming.

      • Jeffro says:

        You’re right, humans have a profound impact, especially long winded know nothings like you trying to tell the rest of us that we know nothing. Blow it out your butt. Perhaps your long winded retort above has vastly increased your “carbon footprint”. Do the planet a favor, reduce your carbon footprint by taking a long walk off of a short pier.

      • bluepersuasion says:

        Mike, the earth has a NATURAL ebb and flow in ALL things. By the way, your melting polar ice caps crap has been debunked. Recent photos have shown the polar ice caps have GROWN. Seriously, dude, quit believing in unicorns and pixie dust and get real.

        • Jeffro says:

          If only the libs intent were this innocent and benign. Every thing they say and do is driven by their GREED, MALICE, and urge to REPRESS. THAT is why I say to all of them, go to he11. I believe there is some warming happening there.

        • rangerrebew says:

          Do you mean the polar ice caps like the one the global warming proofers got their ship stuck in because the ice was so think? The one that the rescue ice breaker got stuck in, the one that came to rescue to proofer’s ship?

        • Harold Katz says:

          Have you ever noticed that during periods when the polar ice caps are shrinking that Al Gore actually grows fatter? Coincidence?

      • morningmael says:

        Except the global ice caps are NOT MELTING! You swallowed the hoax hook, line, and sinker, and can only call people stupid that weren’t dull enough to bite the hook that makes such a fool out of YOU!

      • I stopped reading your reply when you said you were embarassed to be an American! !! There are many soldiers who will show you how to leave this fine country. BE NICE.

      • Mr. Jim says:

        You are the ignorant one. Supercomputers —- garbage in garbage out. There are a lot of assumptions made when putting the data needed to attempt a conclusion in this area. The problem is that grants and other money only support one point of view in this argument so it promote the unscientific method of starting with a conclusion and working backwards to make it work. If they don’t they lose their funding and or careers. If you want to come to a reasonable conclusion you allow dissenting views.

        It is not proven science that the earth is warming or cooling. For instance what is the mean temperature of the earth? No one knows so how can they tell which way from mean we are going in. CO2 another unproven theory.

        Yet many are ready to spend untold $ trillions of dollars to solve a problem they don’t know for sure exist. At the same time they would sentence undeveloped countries to forever poverty. I think that something that has these kinds of consequences would be open the all scientist without political interference.

      • Tom Seim says:

        Ask the Vikings that settled Greenland if it is warming; they will tell you to get a grip! Ask the ancient Romans if it is warming; they will tell you we are entering a new ice age! This warming – hold the phone, the Earth hasn’t warmed for 16 years! – is a blip in a much larger cooling trend.

      • Joe Diamos says:

        OMG!!! There is a book out called, “hitler’s willing executioners” That is you buddy… communist willing executioners….. Al Gore can’t do this all a lone !!

      • Try goggling CCX. Learn about the founders of the Climate Change Exchange. Obama, Soros, Clinton’s Goldman sachs etc, were all investors.with top Dems standing to make personal Billions if Cap and trade became law. Meanwhile the Dem lies continue using the EPA instead of the CLIMATE EXCHANGE..

      • Guillermo Villas says:

        I’m embarassed to say that i wasted my time reading your ignorant post.

      • TSZodiac says:

        Arctic ice 50% above last year (http://dailycaller.com/2013/12/16/global-warming-satellite-data-shows-arctic-sea-ice-coverage-up-50-percent/), Antarctic ice at historic levels (since record keeping began WAY back in the 1970’s (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2012/10/121013-antarctica-sea-ice-record-high-science-global-warming/)….comments? The devices that measure these things say that the polar icecaps are NOT melting…..so you can come in off the ledge and be proud to be an American again. Now get ready for the next shock…in the year that the “scientists” say was one of the “warmest on record” there were more LOW temperature records broken than high temperature records (http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2013/12/31/record-cold-temperatures/4264237/), we had record lows for hurricanes/typhoons, record lows for wildfires in the US, record lows for tornados, snowfall in Australia (in the Summer), snowfall for the first time in 100 years in parts of the Middle East….basically the exact OPPOSITE of what the Global Warming Alarmists (aka “Gore-ites”) predicted. Even the IPCC was forced to admit in a Sept 2013 report that there hasn’t been any warming for at least the last 17 years (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24173504)…both NASA and NOAA confirm that what they call a “pause” in the warming is continuing (http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/17470-nasa-data-global-warming-still-on-pause-sea-ice-hit-record)….AND now they are predicting that this “pause” in warming could last into the 2050’s ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2485772/Global-warming-pause-20-years-Arctic-sea-ice-started-recover.html).
        Its not a DEM thing – its not a REP thing….its a MONEY thing.

        • billy smith says:

          TSZodiac — Great post but I doubt it will change the minds of the idiots that believe in the hocus pocus of man made global warming. The fact that someone can use the argument that ‘just because it’s cold right now doesn’t mean it’s not warming’ and then simultaneously say that 1 year, 10 years or even 100 years of melting polar ice caps (which aren’t actually melting right now but increasing) is a way to show that MAN has changed the environment is one of the most pathetic arguments that can be made and is contradictory to it’s own assertion towards what is a ‘useful’ data set.

          Even if we had 100 straight years of melting ice caps that would be just a BLIP in time to be measuring these cycles which take tens of thousands of years. A 100 years of data is as useful as one days temperature when looked at in comparison to the long freeze/thaw cycles that accompany any gradual shift from an ice age to an interglacial medium, at which point temps would slowly, cyclically warble until reaching a new ice age.

          Any rational,reasoning human being could see and understand this, but then, no one ever accused global warming alarmists of being rational or reasoning, and they are barely human as well.

        • TSZodiac says:

          What I find HILARIOUS is that the Old Farmers Almanac, which relies on things like solar cycles and historical data, has been and continues to be FAR more accurate in their predictions than does ANY prediction made by so called “climate scientists” pushing the AGW scam….maybe we need to remember that these “scientists” are basically the same group of people who can’t tell you with any reliability whether it will rain tomorrow…

        • Prince mongo says:

          Have you ever actually eaten shit? How do you know you will die if you eat it? Conservatives take pride in throwing around insults like this and then go to their “church” on Sunday and pretend to their family and friends that they are sooo Pius. Liberals would never use an insult…. They have facts.

        • Daniel Petry says:

          Hmmm. The only people I see biting peoples fingers off, shooting high school kids, murdering elementary children, killing theatre goers are liberals. You’re in good company.

      • steiner says:

        Brainwashed tv world schlub….antarctica has “manmade” records of ice ..so why do you think its melting? Rite lib media, huh idiot….

      • Heftyjo says:

        Actually there are a number of climate scientists that disagree on the extent to which humans are influencing the climate. It’s readily accepted that the global climate temps have been rising since the 1800’s; however the level warming is not significant. Certainly not significant enough to warrant what some UN reports advocate spending the equivalent of a Apollo Moon programs amount of money every year for the next 50 years to mitigate a .6-1 degree Celsius rise in global temperatures. But these dissenting opinions are often conveniently left out of the finalized reports when they pass through the bureaucratically politicized final report. Imagine that, the politicians find another way of generating revenue through taxation and cronyism and they do everything possible to paint an unanimous consensus that something, anything, must be done! Say it ain’t so….

        It’s also not in question that humans can and do affect the environment around them. But to the degree of which human caused green house gases influence the global mean temperature is in question. The evidence suggests that the climate isn’t as sensitive to the human green house gas contribution to the atmosphere that early adopters to the green house theory suggest. The facts show that there has been no significant warming in the past 16 years. This has lead the global warmists to proclaim that the heat is hiding down in the deep oceans. And one day it’ll rise up and BAM! We’re all toast. This is boogey man logic at best. There isn’t enough data recording on deep water temperatures to even being to describe in any detail that the heat is hiding down there. Not to mention that the laws of thermodynamics prohibit such an explosive warming of the atmosphere that the latest round of fear-mongering from the warmists propose.

        The Earth’s climate has dealt with asteroid impacts, supervolcanoes, and continental drift; and yet seems to variate in her own time, and pulse up and down irregardless. This would suggest that the Earth’s climate would not be susceptible to a positive feedback loop that would develop into a runaway global warming scenario. In fact, the Earth’s climate over the billions of years that it has been around has shown that it is more of a neutral feedback system. It takes 100’s of millions of years for things to change on the large scale as is evident that Earth atmosphere was originally a methane rich environment and gradually developed into a nitrogen/oxygen rich environment. We are truly blessed with the right mix of water versus land and more importantly a large Moon that not only torques our axis enough to keep it stable but also flexes the Earth core enough to keep it hot and producing a magnetic shield against solar radiation. Thus the reason that we are possible to even exist is because we’ve the good fortune of a dynamic planetary environment that on the large scale remains stable enough to produce life; irregardless of external pressures and forcing by outside events. I reject the view that we humans are a cancer on this Earth. That we are somehow reducing its opulence in its place in the Universe. No, we are here to observe the Universe in all it’s glory. We exist so that the Universe can know itself. We consume the latent entropic energy in the Universe through our endeavors to know, learn, and understand why we are even here. Therefore, we should grow, we should expand, we should enrich ourselves; not only in money but in mind. The warmist want to take that all away. They want to draw down the population, they want to move us back to the pre-industrial society when we didn’t know these things, when we didn’t understand. And yet they say this must be done to be good to the Earth, to the Universe that put us here so that it could know itself. To be “environmentally conscience” is to deny everything that that term even implies.

        It’s easy Mike. Do not use anything made from petrochemicals. Nothing made from plastic, fuel for you vehicle or anything produced using petrochemicals. Electricity is produced from those sources you hate, so turn off your lights and heat. Put your ideology where your mouth is, or just shut up.

        • juan767 says:

          actually if all americans were gone today at noon it would lower carbon production on earth by less than 1%. DUH! and if all humans on the planet were not here it would lower carbon production by 4.5%. the greenhouse effect of the computer model theory states that man produces xs carbon causing a greenhouse effect warming the planet. we are in the 16th year of no warming therefore the theory is false, a swindle.

      • Mike Hurly says: “This content is currently unavailable”
        IOW Folks: “Mike Hurly” doesn’t actually exist. Who could have guessed? Its another Obamabot.

      • dknezacek says:

        You’re right Al Gore didn’t invent global warming; The Club of Rome did in their 1974 book “Mankind at the Turning Point – The second report to the Club of Rome”. They said at that time that they would use it to push for a global government.

        Looks like they are following the plan, along with help from a bunch of useful idiots, like Al Gore!

      • NeoPatriot says:

        The point is not if there is global warming which NOAA has estimated to be between 1 and 2 degrees Fahrenheit over the past 100 years.
        The real points are;
        Is this small increase in average global temperatures is being caused by increased levels of Carbon Dioxide? The answer from science is inconclusive at best.
        Do coal fired power plants produces significantly higher levels of CO2 emissions compared to Natural Gas fired plants? 20 to 40% more according to most studies but Obama has taken it upon himself to shut down coal plants across our country bringing our power grid to dangerously low levels.
        Will an international Carbon tax paid to the global bankers led by such firms as Rothschild Ltd and Blood & Gore Co. (real name) solve the problem? No it is another banker rip off.

        We do have real environmental problems in the world; Fukushima, leaking and outdated nuclear power plants, GMO, oil spills, strip mining, acid rain, pharmaceuticals in our water supplies etc. but there is no real evidence that CO2 levels of 0.4% of our atmosphere is one of them.

        • ddn123 says:

          You know why we have mountain topping and strip mining? There is a thing called the Byrd Rule, named after Sen. Byrd of WV. The Byrd rule requires that over half of coal burned east of the Mississippi be mined east of the Mississippi. Why? Because, coal mined in Wyoming (quite easy and safe to do with little impact on the environment) is cheaper than mining cola 1000 of feet under the ground in the Appalachia. This are the rules that environmentalists will not attack because they are in bed with politicians that have to take their pound of flesh to do any work. If you got rid of the Byrd rule, the Appalachia would enjoy less impact from mining operations that require moving a lot of dirt to get the coal.

      • Oakie Wilson says:

        Ah, you make the usual mistake, a flawed premise.

        When you start off by saying, ” It (global warming) is related to the melting of the polar ice caps on the poles”.

        The total global ice cover is GROWING, not diminishing.

        Even my cat can look that up.

        When you either lie, or are too stupid to look up the data, you can see why we laugh at you.

        (Even funnier is your left wing, elitist, know it all, attitude on something you obviously know so little about. :)

      • BlueSkyScientist says:

        Errr…. like the Global Warming Alarmists that frozen solid in all that melting ice cap?

      • john says:

        Maybe you should go back and read your statement about the polar ice caps melting. they aren’t. Have another glass of kool aid and go watch star trek.

      • No, humans have not AFFECTED the planet. We are a puny bug on the face of the enormous mass of planet earth. You attribute power to the human race that does not exist because you think you are the center of the universe. You are not.

        • billy smith says:

          Precisely!! I dare any one of these global warming alarmist loons to get into a dinghy in the middle of the pacific ocean. After an hour they will understand how miniscule they really are in this world and understand the true power of the ocean. Now, add the rest of the mass of the earth, the mass of the moon and the mass and power of the sun and anyone who isn’t mentally deranged will understand that they have NO power to control any of these systems.

          You are a fleck of dust on the foot of an ant at the base of a redwood in a forest of trees. That is how much power man has when compared to the unrelenting powers involved between the earth, moon, sun & tides and the climates created by the four.

      • realestateplanet says:

        You HAVE had your screed. Now listen. Everything you’ve said is a total fabrication. Man made global warming had been debunked and you and a handful of others are the only ignoramuses left on the planet. What a moron.

      • Mikes A. Douchebag says:

        LOL. Yawn. Another angry liberal calling people names because his make believe world is a lie and he doesn’t want to admit it. What is the average dollar amount the “scientists” were paid to support the global fascist lie that global warming is real? Mike, there is good and evil, right and wrong, right and left, freedom and slavery. You’re on the wrong side of everything…like Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers, you want to control or kill everyone…and, well, we don’t like it…

      • Paul Griggs says:

        But the arctic and antarctic ice is rapidly expanding, global temperatures have been flat since the late 1990’s, the ICCC computer models haven’t predicted past climate, the input on the ICCCC models keeps getting corrected and the expected sea level rise keeps going down the more they find, the global alarmists can’t explain why there is a pause in their predicted disaster, we were all supposed to be dead due to the irreversible hole in the ozone layer that is somehow reversing itself despite increased worldwide usage of CFCs (less in western countries, more in developing nations), that pesky pole shift hasn’t happened yet, the big earthquake hasn’t destroyed the world, we managed to survive without being hit by a devastating meteorite, the sun isn’t expected to supernova for a few billion years, we managed not to nuke the world, we still haven’t died from living next to those power transmission lines and omg, how will we ever survive without the latest scare tactic. Why don’t you listen and actually understand the significance of all this before going all loony on the world!

      • Oakie Wilson says:

        You say, “It’s a completely ignorant, head in the sand statement to say that we humans have not effected the environment nor have a lasting impact. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ we have, it is a matter of what the full ramifications of that impact are.”

        Truth is humans have had an impact on their environment for some 300,000 years.

        The most recent major impact is that of the fossil fueled Industrial Revolution, which has given mankind more prosperity, longevity, better health, air and water, than any other single event in human history. (not even counting the technology which allows you to complain about it)

      • Peterk Sour says:

        AGW is the issue, truly.
        1.And it’s not America -that’s if it’s real.
        Unless China, India etc. do something why should I.
        2. There’s been no ‘warming for more than 12 years.
        So all your words mean little against the facts.

      • James says:

        The last great Ice Age melted because of global warming when man’s was hardly present on the planet. So how do you know the same natural cycling of climate isn’t happening now regardless of man’s environmental impact or presence on the planet? But if the present global warming (“climate change” just to be safe) IS related to man, then aren’t you actually saying man’s population growth? And if that’s the case, what do you think we should do to control it?

      • TJP says:

        The polar ice caps are at the highest level they’ve been for years. The world has not warmed for close to two decades. Even if Global Warming were continuing unabated, however, we are still at least a few degrees below optimum for life on Earth (more plants and animals die from cold each year than heat), and at current scientifically-supported trends, we aren’t likely to see that for centuries. Never mind move into danger areas. You do know there were warming periods thousands of years in the past that were comparable to what we’re seeing now?

        But let’s assume for the sake if argument you are correct. It’s irrelevant. The solutions proposed by environmentalists – Cap and Trade, carbon taxes, regulatory restrictions, alternative energy subsidies, etc. are all worthless, since they’re either ineffective or significantly increase our energy and production costs. What happens when our production costs go up? That’s right, production shifts to countries that pollute far MORE – China, for instance, which pollutes 4x as much per unit of production. As long as we pollute less than developing countries, and we do, any attempt at regulation or restriction will tend to both destroy our economy and increase, not decrease, global pollution.

        Assuming you are a true believer, therefore, the only workable solution is to subsidize research alone, and leave it up to the market to implement. Tech that both saves money and produces less greenhouse gases will be implemented voluntarily, and only then will China, India, etc. be forced to implement as well if they want to compete. Subsidizing bad technology, on the other hand, actually delays implementation of the good stuff. How much money has been thrown into corn ethanol or car batteries filled with toxic pollutants, that should have been saved for basic research in biomass or solid-state batteries? How about implementing solar panel power plants, vs research into compressed-air energy storage and solar collection? Subsidies for wind farms in areas with little wind and/or no connection to the energy grid? Etc. The “green” industry is corrupt up to its eyeballs.

        • Evangeline Brabant says:

          You are completely right. But the left sees all this deception as their path to take over the world – all for our own good, of course. They have tried repeatedly to create one world government through regulation and tyrannical controls.

      • THEMIGHTYQ says:

        It is agreed that people can affect the environment adversely, like when they industrialize and level mountain tops to put up “windmills farms” with flashing red lights all night or use 2.5 square miles in a rural area to place 7500 back to back 3 story solar panels.

        • billy smith says:

          Don’t forget the mountains (in Peru and elsewhere) reduced to nothing in order to mine the granite to extract the materials to make solar panels. One particular element used in the production of solar panels is less common in granite than uranium (which requires 4000lbs. raw granite to produce 1 lb. of uranium)!!!!

      • JD says:

        Yet the polar ice caps actually expanded this year. How does that happen if its getting colder. Can humans harm the environment? Sure they can but Global warming is based on faulty science by scientist who are paid to come up with a specific answer. That’s not real science.

      • Did you take your Kool-Aid cold or was it heated up by the “Global Warming?”

        I know it’s hard to believe that they enormous thermonuclear explosion that is in close proximity to our planet seems like an unlikely source of heat to you, and certainly could never be as powerful as the damned humans on this planet with all of their cars, cows, and farts, but perhaps you should pay attention to the correlation between solar activity and global temperatures. Or is it just easier to accept as fact the garbage spoon fed to you mouth breathing, paste eating, unscientific dotards called liberals?

        News Flash: The climate is changed by solar activity.

        Dumbass.

        All of the ‘science’ you point to is nothing but manipulated or cherry picked data. Do the research yourself. Overall polar ice caps are freezing earlier and over larger areas than ever. There has been no warming over the past 17 years. There is no increase in catastrophic weather events. The next time you read an article about a glacier melting try to remember they’ve been melting for 10,000 years because we’re coming out of a nice age. If you see a study about ice caps melting, ask yourself why the author is focused on a small area rather than overall ice mass. AGW is about money and nothing else, maybe when another twenty years pass without any of their threats coming to fruition you’ll finally get it.

      • adambreel says:

        Just keep calling people stupid and maybe everyone will believe you. I guess mocking and ridiculing has replaced scientific method. Another graduate of Jon Stewart University. The fact is the models that predicted global warming have not been verified by empirical data. They predicted substantial temperature increases by now and that has just not occurred. If the models are not predictive then they are not correct, that is how scientific method works. So just keep calling people names I’m sure that will substantially help your cause.

      • Mikey, you seem like a nice enough guy that is passionate about the planet. Your mistake is mixing arguments. You are correct that we are not being good stewards of the home that God has provided us and put us in charge of. We’re using unsafe chemicals in our environment, polluting it, and wasting materials by discarding used products in landfills instead of recycling. However, no truly intelligent person believes in (man made) global warming aka (man made) climate change aka Anthropogenic Global Warming or whatever the next misleading term for “human-caused” climate change is. I don’t “deny global warming cause I think it’s a Dem thing”. I do deny (man-made) global warming cause I think it’s a Dumb thing. I do believe in true climate change that has taken place on our living planet over time. Oceans have turned to plains, and plains to oceans. Forests have turned to deserts, and deserts have turned to forests. I can’t make an argument, with a straight face, that those planet hating Egyptians would still have grass and trees around the pyramids if they would’ve just quit driving those big SUVs after building them. Oh, on that “melting of the polar ice caps on the poles” thing,,, two words… Akademik Shokalskiy. It and its 52 passengers just got back home after being trapped in pack ice for over two months.
        Hey Chris Turney, let me get this straight… you got stuck in Antarctic pack ice that froze around you on your way to study the effect of “global warming” on melting Antarctic pack ice? PRICELESS.
        Oh… that’s right… this just proves that anthropogenic climate warming global change exists because it’s an offset caused by the affects of abnormal warming at {insert random location here}.
        No dude … It’s called WEATHER!

      • First, before posting Obamabot rubbish about a nonexistent global warming, have someone with basic English check your spelling and grammar. As an example, one does not “effect” the environment, the AGW hypothesis is that humans AFFECT it. So-called experts have been warning alternately of global warming and a New Ice Age for over 140 years, during which time the global temperature (all scientists, pro-AGW and anti-AGW agree on this) has risen … wait for it, 0.8 degrees. And, again generally agreed to, there her been ZERO warming for 17 years and counting.
        .
        The idea that man-made CO2 put into the atmosphere (Algore’s favorite hypothesis) was knocked on the head in the early 1970s. The fastest buildup of man-made atmospheric CO2 was during the 30 years after 1941, when industrialized nations worldwide went into a frenzy of armaments and – in the post WWII boom – rebuilding and producing consumer goods like cars and refrigerators. And the temperature went down steadily for those 30 years.
        .
        Earth’s temperature has gone up and down steadily for as long as this planet has existed in solid form. A thousand years ago (The Medieval Warming Period) it was much warmer than today, warm enough for the Vikings to establish a community of cattle grazing and sheep farming in Greenland, and grow wine grapes in what is now Newfoundland (which they named Vinland, or “wine land.”) Then, a few hundred years later, there was the Maunder Minimum, or Little Ice Age, when it was so cold that the Thames in London froze to a depth of two feet and more, and became a highway for wagons, and shops set up business, parties and ox roasts took place etc.
        .
        The sun (tilt, sunspots) has more influence on global temperatures than anything man has ever done or can do. Going back to the 1970s (and earlier); here are some predictions:
        .
        “The question is again being discussed whether recent and long-continued observations do not point to the advent of a second glacial period, when the countries now basking in the fostering warmth of a tropical sun will ultimately give way to the perennial frost and snow of the polar regions.” – New York Times, Feb. 24, 1895
        .
        Professor Gregory of Yale University stated that “another world ice-epoch is due.” He was the American representative to the Pan-Pacific Science Congress and warned that North America would disappear as far south as the Great Lakes, and huge parts of Asia and Europe would be “wiped out.” – Chicago Tribune, Aug. 9, 1923
        .
        “The discoveries of changes in the sun’s heat and southward advance of glaciers in recent years have given rise to the conjectures of the possible advent of a new ice age – Time Magazine, Sept. 10, 1923
        .
        “America is believed by Weather Bureau scientists to be on the verge of a change of climate, with a return to increasing rains and deeper snows and the colder winters of grandfather’s day.” – Associated Press, Dec. 15, 1934 .

        “After a week of discussions on the causes of climate change, an assembly of specialists from several continents seems to have reached unanimous agreement on only one point: it is getting colder.” – New York Times, Jan. 30, 1961
        .
        “Like an outrigger canoe riding before a huge comber, the earth with its inhabitants is caught on the downslope of an immense climatic wave that is plunging us toward another Ice Age.” – Los Angeles Times, Dec. 23, 1962
        .
        “By 1985, air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half . . . .” – Life magazine, January 1970
        .
        Because of increased dust, cloud cover and water vapor, “the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born.” – Newsweek magazine, Jan. 26, 1970
        .
        “The United States and the Soviet Union are mounting large-scale investigations to determine why the Arctic climate is becoming more frigid, why parts of the Arctic sea ice have recently become ominously thicker and whether the extent of that ice cover contributes to the onset of ice ages.” – New York Times, July 18, 1970
        .
        “In the next 50 years, fine dust that humans discharge into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuel will screen out so much of the sun’s rays that the Earth’s average temperature could fall by six degrees. Sustained emissions over five to 10 years could be sufficient to trigger an ice age.” – Washington Post, July 9, 1971
        .
        “It’s already getting colder. Some midsummer day, perhaps not too far in the future, a hard, killing frost will sweep down on the wheat fields of Saskatchewan, the Dakotas and the Russian steppes. . . .” – Los Angles Times, Oct. 24, 1971
        .
        “An international team of specialists has concluded from eight indexes of climate that there is no end in sight to the cooling trend of the last 30 years, at least in the Northern Hemisphere.” – New York Times, Jan. 5, 1978
        .
        Some of these “experts” even suggested INCREASING power station and other particulate emission to increase the greenhouse effect, even spreading soot at the poles to trap more sunlight heat. The whole global warming industry is a hoax, a typical socialist wealth redistribution scheme to send billions (MORE BILLIONS, Obozo has already sent $100B) of out taxes to Third-World crap heaps, ostensibly to help them reduce their CO2 emissions (from wood and camel dung fires?), when in reality it will go straight into their dictators’ Swiss bank accounts.
        .
        Enjoy the Algore/Obozo KoolAid.

The global warming hoax of the ’60’s was the Population Bomb. By the year 2000, we were all going to be starving to death and homeless because of over-population. The whole hoax was ginned up in order to support abortion and to scare people into having fewer children and using contraceptives. Global warming was created in order to scare people into buying more expensive energy and forcing people to accept tax hikes that will “reduce our carbon footprint,” all B.S. to support the growth of government and the loss of individual liberty.

      • Mike Genest says:

        No one serious suggests that one cold day or even an entire Winter disproves the AGW hypothesis. In fact, I don’t think anyone of substance asserts that the 17-year pause in warming disproves it. But, the point is : it’s an hypothesis and that means it needs to be tested against data. It has grossly failed the tests so far. The various models are way off. Now, might there be some refinement or new hypothesis to fix the models so that they produce better results in future? There might, but that is speculation, not even rising to the level of hypothesis. So, what you have is that AGW has failed to present a hypothesis that passes the test of the last 17 years. Against that what you have is AGW advocates wanting to make massive changes in our global economy, the cooling impact of which they have no validated model to predict. We can hypothesize pretty well what those changes would mean for our economy (people, especially the poor will suffer dramatically). The only reasonable explanation for this seems to be that these people want to empower themselves and their one-world agenda. Of course, if that’s not true please show proof.

        BTW, the advent of supercomputers produced those failed models.

        ———————————-
        “As reported by Principia Scientific International (PSI), Martin Mlynczak and his colleagues over at NASA tracked infrared emissions from the earth’s upper atmosphere during and following a recent solar storm that took place between March 8-10. What they found was that the vast majority of energy released from the sun during this immense coronal mass ejection (CME) was reflected back up into space rather than deposited into earth’s lower atmosphere.

        The result was an overall cooling effect that completely contradicts claims made by NASA’s own climatology division that greenhouse gases are a cause of global warming. As illustrated by data collected using Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER), both carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), which are abundant in the earth’s upper atmosphere, greenhouse gases reflect heating energy rather than absorb it.

        “Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats,” says James Russell from Hampton University, who was one of the lead investigators for the groundbreaking SABER study. “When the upper atmosphere (or ‘thermosphere’) heats up, these molecules try as hard as they can to shed that heat back into space.”

      • ddn123 says:

        As an aerospace engineer, I do understand facts. Half your comment has nothing to do with the average global temperature (which has not risen over the last 15 years) and more to do with quality of life. You list the following

        How long does it take for plastic to breakdown?
        What about nuclear waste?
        How many species are we directly responsible for eliminating?
        How long does it take for the countless varieties of chemicals we’ve thrown out there to breakdown and become benign?
        Explain to me how both poles have all sorts of man-made chemicals there?

        None of these effect global climate. They do effect your quality of life and in some cases–nations with extreme proverty or ignorance–can impact your life expectancy. So plastic does not break down and there is a bunch of trash floating around the oceans. That is just an example of people not knowing how to throw out trash. Nuclear Waste? Again, Governments are lazy and do not know how to manage their own laziness. But nuclear waste is for the most part confined to small (relatively) small areas. How many people die from radiation poising a year? Species elimination has more to do with suburbanization, alien species invasions, etc… Beside about half the endangered species in the US are in the Hawaiian islands because the islands were the most susceptible to alien species displacement and competition.

        I could go on and on and refute most of your argument. Most of your concerns are most prevalently felt in countries with more government control of resources (the industrial waste in the former USSR, the poverty resulting from the caste/socialist system of India and the corruption in the third world are good examples) and not a result of burning fossil fuels.

        The principle problem is the intervention of government into the free market system that distorts the more efficient allocation of resources. For instance, the idiotic endless study of the keystone KL pipeline and NY State banning hydro fracking lead the US to rely on more costly and inefficient uses of energy (solar, wind, coal). Wind and solar are driving up the cost of electricity which only hurts the average consumer for no clear improvement in environmental measures (don’t go talking about CO2 because it is clear the climate models don’t understand the global temperature/climate impact of rising CO2–none of the models have/had predicted the flat temperature measurements over the last 15 years). Wind/solar takes up a bunch of space, kills birds and raises electricity costs. The subsidies prevent the market from using the price function to reward winners and losers. Explain how one windmill farm can kill tens of Golden Eagles every year and be given a pass while the EPA jumps down the throat of one oil producer that had one duck end up dead in a facility?

        Free markets, properly administer allow individuals to most efficiently pursue their life. This does not mean we do not need a clean water/clean air act. But it does not mean we need a government that uses hyperbole to pursue political goals that have nothing to do with science and more to do about social justice.

        Should I go on about the destructive results of ethanol because the climate change/global warmists got all bent out of shape over MTBE?

        Climate change (a cycle of warming and cooling) has been a constant on earth forever. There is no proof of the AGW hypothesis. To the extent the globe has warmed in the last 100 years (perhaps 1°), it’s impossible to say why. This is especially true when there has been no warming in the past 15 years despite the increase in atmospheric CO2.

        The AGW hypothesis is just another excuse to expand the size and scope of government.

        Ladies and gentlemen, here we have a “true-believer;” an individual who has completely consumed the CAGW kool-aid.

        He knows almost nothing of the actual science, but he knows all of the propaganda lines and buzz words. He gets so exercised over any skepticism that he virtually hyperventilates as he spews all of his collect wisdom and knowledge onto the page . . . none of it containing any real FACTUAL information, but filled with assumptions and assertions streaming from his absolute faith in what these pseudo-scientists have told him as they go to the bank to cash their latest grant checks.

        Hey, Mike, for all your ranting and raving, you have missed one very small factor . . . there is no physical, scientific proof of a causal relation between the increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 and increased global temperatures–lots of assumptions have been made, lots of assertions based on theories, but no actual proof, no experimental data, nothing that any real scientist would consider capable of elevating AGW from being nothing more than a theory.

        Correlation is not causation. You can’t, as climate scientists have tried to do, simply assume that because two things appear to correlate, there is a direct relationship between them.

        The models have never fit the data. Each level of new data they get forces them to “tweak” their models to explain why the data deviate from predictions made by their precious models. The first thing anyone should know about computer models is that THEY ONLY REFLECT THE BIASES OF THE PROGRAMMERS WHO WROTE THEM. If the scientists who wrote the program expect to see predictions of AGW, then that’s what they will find, unless they are exceptionally careful in their efforts to avoid any assumptions. Of course, we all know from their emails at the CRU that they weren’t interested in facts, only in preserving their academic domains and careers.

        Real scientist don’t try to prove their theories right, they try to DISPROVE THEM. Real scientist don’t look to “consensus,” SCIENCE ISN’T A DEMOCRACY IN WHICH YOU VOTE TO DECIDE WHICH SOLUTION IS THE CORRECT ONE.

        If you can’t debate it, it’s not science, it’s religion. If you won’t allow dissent, it’s not science, it’s religion. If you attempt to suppress those who disagree with you, it’s not science, it’s religion. AGW is a religion with very little actual science to support it’s claims.

Have you not read, or perhaps have you intentionally ignored, the data coming out of the champion of control, the UN, about the “pause” or heard about the faking of data in the UK? Regardless, it matters not because the entirety of the argument is about control. Control over how people live (“you can’t set your thermostat at 72 degrees” while the reported Oval Office winter temp is “hot enough to grow orchids”) not only through onerous regulation driving up the cost of business and subsequently the cost to the consumer but the taking of your/my/our money to “offset” these alleged crimes against humanity.

        The supermodels running on the supercomputers have over predict temperature increase twice. The first time the modelers added sulfur dioxide making clouds to their models and surprise that lowered the temps to reality. But, the rate of increase did not change and now the temperature is lower than what the model predict like in the lower 4% of prediction. This is in part because scientist know where only 60% of the carbon dioxide is.

        On the other side the sun – cosmic ray – low level cloud theory has high ( 90%) agreement with temperatures in the arctic and agreement which long term temperature patterns. That is why there are studies under way at CERN to investigate the kinetics of the relationship between the three.

        The AGW hypothesis supporters are very unscientific in says the question is answered and all questioning should stop. Just remember one counter example of a scientific law disproves the law. So, all scientific questions are always open to question. In this case the failures of the models are very good reasons to question the hypothesis.

        Newsflash…the leading weather scientist at MIT agrees that the earth has warmed but not enough to give anyone any concern. He has stated that the science is not there to prove that man can control the weather. Your points are more towards pollution. There is no doubt man is polluting the earth and I would think you would find that most conservatives agree we should not pollute the earth out of basic logic, not because it affects the weather. Mercury in fish is caused by mans pollution. Nuclear waste is caused by mans pollution. These should not be tolerated. China is the biggest polluter on the planet and when you discover a way to stop them let everyone know. Also when it comes to carbon dioxide nature produces more than we ever could imagine. Do your research and simply Google the carbon dioxide emissions of ONE volcanic eruption which, the last time I looked was natural. Compare that output to the emissions of cars in the US. When you do you will be one step closer to being an informed liberal. I pray that all tree hugging libs just open their minds and do nonpartisan research and rather trying to prove that humans are warming the earth and look at the real science. If you did you would realize the science is like Obamacare….a pack of lies.

      • Man affecting the environment is a quite different thing than Man being able to significantly alter the climate of Planet Earth. Please keep your nonsense straight. The AGWs also start chicken little’ing about AGW whenever there’s a hurricane, tornado, drought, forest fire, heat wave, etc. somewhere on the planet, but then they lecture everyone else about how “weather is not climate” whenever there’s extreme cold waves, record ice at the poles, record snow, etc.. There hasn’t been any global warming for 12 years and even the IPCC is admitting now that the climate models they based on their hysterics on are completely incapable of predicting anything accurately.

The question you have to ask yourself is if you found out that global warming was a lie would you be disappointed?

I am a very conscious citizen who recycles extensively. I treat the planet (and people who deserve it) with great respect. But seriously, this whole Global Warming Alarmism thing is a huge scam designed to keep Tax Dollars funneling into academia where hyper-liberal professors keep the sham of global warming alive. I’m sick and tired of liberal dishonesty. Dishonesty is the foundation of modern-day Democrats and global warming is just one more example of it.

      • And the ice is THICKENING!!! On both caps it’s thickening. You hear about your fellow geniuses who got stuck in the ice at the South Pole because they believed like you that ice was melting? On the other side of the world they have found the ice at the North Pole ice sheet grew 533,000 THOUSAND square miles in one year. The ice is growing, not melting. Your global warming is nothing more than a myth constructed by liberals who don’t care about the environment, but care about controlling you. They can’t force you to live their way, unless they can justify it with some “noble cause” thus global warming.

        OK….lets have a real debate on man made global warming. Lets get a panel of scientists on both sides of the issue to debate the issue. So far global warming advocates have simply said ‘the science is settled’…no debate is necessary. Reality is that there are MANY prestigious scientists who do not support the man made global warming theory but their voices are muffled and ignored all together by people like you who consider those of us who are skeptical at best as a bunch of idiots.

        If one looks at those who are pushing the global warming hoax, it is clear that their agenda is to create an all new tax structure which is nothing more than another form of wealth redistribution. Your comments are vacuous in view of the MANY predictions that have already failed on the part of the left. Sea ice in the North Pole is not receding….it is growing. After hurricane Katrina the leftist global warming scientists stated that we were entering a period of unprecedented hurricane activity. Yet the past seven or eight years have been punctuated by extremely low hurricane occurrences. The list of already debunked claims about global warming is a long one…..and I suspect that trend will continue….but you one world globalists who want to tax everything will keep on with your mindless drivel

      • WR Burton says:

        Mike, just because we do not buy into the leftist power grab that the whole “man-made climate change” hoax is truly all about, does not mean that we love fossil fuels and plastic. To the contrary, most of us believe in a rational timeline and fiscally responsible shift to finding REAL answers to new energy sources. We also believe in clean air and a healthy environment. But carbon dioxide is as “clean” as oxygen itself. In fact, it IS oxygen for all plant life.

        If you cannot see the leftist agenda behind AGW, you are severely naive. All you have to do is look at the push to move trillions of First World funds to Third World countries. Like that is somehow really going to solve the problem. And the only ones who will be helped are the corrupt leaders of those nations, who will make sure that half of it goes into their secret Swiss accounts.

        Likewise, all this AGW research, funded by left leaning governments, has simply kept the scientists who created them employed. Its in their own self interest to keep the research coming. Meanwhile, ALL of them failed to predict the “pause” in warming that has happened over the last 15 years…. Follow the money.

Just look at who is making money off the Global Warming hype. The earth has and always will fluctuate between warming and cooling periods, this is nothing new nor earth shattering. Profiteering off of the masses of the ignorant who are not smart enough to see the hype is based on dis-proven, manipulated and false data is far more destructive to planet and its people. To those GW fanatics, it is their religion, they must compensate for the reality of their insignificance in a planetary scale.

        Looking for science Mike? Here you go:
        1. In appx 3,5 billion years our decendants, if our species survives, will have to vacate the planet. The sun in its death throes will expand and engulf the earth.
        2. The largest determining factor for our climate is the SUN. Turn it off and see what happens after 8 1/3 minutes. Temperatures have varied widely over the mllenia due to sun activity. Ex. 2500 years ago Carthegenian General Hannibal crossed the Mediterranian with his elephants, traversed the Italian Alps to attack Rome from the north. The mountain passages were open, not frozen. Over the years the passages have been alternativly open and frozen with ice ages, little and major.

Global warming changes climates across the globe, one place may get hotter, another cooler. Jet streams shift and weather patterns change. Global warming is no longer debatable amongst anyone but fringe scientists, right-wing radio show hosts, and the ignorant who don’t care to actually look into the issue.

      • Heftyjo says:

        In other words Global Warming means whatever it is you want it to mean. It’s climate when we say so, it’s weather when it’s not. Plus, there is no consensus. There are lots of paid climate scientists that disagree with the degree to which human contributed green houses gases are affecting the environment. It’s just that those opinions are conveniently left out of the finalized bureaucratically politicized reports. To be skeptical is to be scientific. The politicians just want to hook, line, and sinker, a project that ensures more revenue to their pet causes. You’ve apparently been baited.

      • Mike's A. Douchebag says:

        Mike, you’re like the drunk at the party who’s arguing nonsense with everyone and doesn’t realize he’s soiled his pants or is so shameless he doesn’t care. The science is settled. Science has been corrupted by fascists like Algore, the Democrat Party and the UN.

      • TSZodiac says:

        Hey Mike – did you know there are marine fossils in the desert southwest of the US? Did you know there are ancient sunken ruins off the coasts of Egypt, India, Great Britain, Italy and elsewhere? No doubt these can be explained by ancient peoples and dinosaurs overuse of fossil fuel based machinery….

      • what you just described is called “weather”. it has nothing to do with fossil fuels. oh, and did you miss all the scandalous data mining that they did at the IPCC? I thought so. oh, and what about the Martian polar ice caps? Are they also receding because we’re driving too many cadillacs? and, what about the MIT, Stanford and Harvard scientists, all of whom laugh at the concept of global warming but, of course, never get their voice heard in the mainstream media. one need look no further than the divide between republicans and democrats to understand that global warming is a political issue, not a scientific issue.

      • Karl W. Braun says:

        Mike, Steve G. has more than just anecdotes. He has quite a trove of data. Ask him: it might just be an eye opener for you.
        About the “island country” you mentioned, that must be either Tuvalu or Kiribati. Both places have not really experienced any sea level rise. Another such country, the Maldives, is actually building additional airports.

      • grendel007 says:

        Documented by the same scientists who wanted to put soot on the ice caps 30 years ago? Or like the the readings that show no change or cooler temps overall for 15+ years?
        OR the kook scientists who disagree being the ones who aren’t FUNDED by the government.
        No one cares what YOU say anymore.
        Call us all the names you want. We don’t care anymore. Your lies are worhtless

        “A lot of you would do good to pick up a book.” Egotistic liberals love their reflection in the mirror. Hurly apparently doesn’t realize that next to many of the people he criticizes, he’s illiterate and hasn’t read ANYTHING not permitted by liberal Newspeak.

      • Evangeline Brabant says:

        When do you learn to write? It is “do well” to pick up a book. Evidence “such as” not “like.” “an island country” not Island Country.”

        Actually, one of the most prominent scientists in the world – at MIT – is an anti-global warming scientist. And since no computer models agree, and since the Global Warming pseudo-scientist lied repeatedly, and made millions, no one really believes anything people such as you have to say.

        The Earth has always undergone climate change, and recently experts are wondering how much, if anything, is related to man’s activities as compared to the Earth doing its thing, as it has done for millions of years.

        The key thing with the left, besides making billions, is to take over the world through world regulation about Global Warming. “Climate Change” won’t get them there, so any way they can lie, distort and falsify will work for them. It is all about one-world government.

      • Science is Dead says:

        Wait. Aren’t you the one who pointed to one day of record high temps in Phoenix last week as your “anecdotal evidence” that my hairspray is melting the ice caps?

      • adambreel says:

        But pictures of a melting glaciers and Hurricane Sandy prove global warming? Maybe you should learn about scientific method and then you would know that that a scientific model needs to predict an outcome to be valid. These models have made predictions (ie substantially higher global temperatures) that have not come true. Maybe instead of replacing critical thinking skills with expert worship you should try thinking for yourself.

        Not one fact or one reference to a fact or even a link to a single fact to support any of your suppositions. Just demonization and assertions that it is ‘no longer debatable’.

      The outcome of research depends on the funding.

    • Evangeline Brabant says:

      Actually, it is a minority of scientists, and they trash anyone who dares disagree with them, even though real scientist welcome debate and study.

      And the Global Warming bunch have made billions. However, Al Gore has been told by the British that if he steps foot on their soil, anywhere, and tries to make any money on his Global Warming schemes, they will arrest him on the spot, and “You will go to jail.”

      The Brits learned better and more completely than we did about the eleven lies and distortions in “An Inconvenient Truth.”

    SETTLED SCIENCE: Betrayal of the scientific method for politics or money or both.
    DENIER: Anyone who suspects the truth.
    CLIMATE CHANGE: What has been happening for billions of years, but should now be flogged to produce ‘panic for profit.’
    NOBEL PEACE PRIZE: Leftist Nutcase Prize, unrelated to “Peace” in any meaningful way.
    DATA, EVIDENCE: Unnecessary details. If anyone asks for this, see “DENIER,” above.
    CLIMATE SCIENTIST: A person skilled in spouting obscure, scientific-sounding jargon that has the effect of deflecting requests for “DATA” by “DENIERS.” Also skilled at affecting an aura of “Smartest Person in the Room” to buffalo gullible legislators and journalists.
    JUNK SCIENCE: The use of invalid scientific evidence resulting in findings of causation which simply cannot be justified or understood from the standpoint of the current state of credible scientific knowledge.

  23. Ed says:

    No matter what scientists or anyone in the West wants or does, China, India and Africa are going to control humanity’s approach to anything related to global cooling or warming. China and India have about 55 percent of the world’s population. China does not give a hoot what Al G or that ignoramus on this board say. China is going to pollute to build manufacturing to feed the 1 billion Chinese in abject poverty. Same for India and Africa.

  24. wake-up-please says:

    The null hypothesis that global climate change is not caused by human behaviour has not been refuted. The null hypothesis is the foundation of scientific method. The carbon tax in Australia has been abandoned due to the detrimental economic imapact. Europe is following suit for the same reason. Please come back and argue when you have statistically verifiable data. This is getting old.

  31. Mary Meyer says:

    Here’s how you can detect a Communist/Leftist of any persuasion: They will tell instruct you to belief the opposite of what you know to be true. This is the first step in gaining control of any population. For instance, we all know that there have been many ice ages–cooling and heating cycles of enormous magnitude, occurring with no influence from humanity. We know that modern methodology tells us there has been no increase in the average global temperatures for 15 years and even a slight drop. We all know that the global warming movement had to be re-branded into “climate change” or what the rest of us call weather when it was proven to be false and supported with falsified data.
    The President of the United States will instruct us to believe that the currently seasonably cold is really a result of what was sold as global warming and at the same time tell us we can’t make judgments based on daily weather events. In other words, don’t believe your lying eyes.
    This is the world we live in under the poser President.

  37. Jack Frost says:

    One thing I am pretty sure of is that it’s virtually impossible to have a rational public discussion of matters such as “man made climate change” (nee “global warming”). All the talk will NOT change the realities. The venomous bias of the “herd of independent thinkers” led by such cheerleaders as Al Gore, Obama, et al, makes it hard to overlook their heavily vested political and financial conflicts of interest – not to mention they know less about the subject than my dead cat. Matters of reality aren’t really governed by “talk” and “votes”. My humble OPINION is that the “progressives” have usurped a seemingly “scientifically based” issue to use as a hammer to squash their “infidels”.

  38. Fact: Coldest temperature ever recorded happened July 31 2013 in Antarctica measuring -135.8 below zero.
    Fact: This year the Antarctic Ice doubled, and is slow to retreat during their summer months right now.
    Fact: Arctic Ice at the north pole increased by 1/3 this past year.
    Fact: the average temperature medium for nov-dec-jan so far for the entire united states is below freezing;
    Fact: while mild conditions exist up the west cost, and unusually mild in coastal Alaska for this season, it is not all unusual occurrence, much like England never freezes because of the gulf stream, right now the warm air from Hawaii is riding up the coast north. Its a natural occurrence.; the rest of the country is completely freezing over, all the way to the gulf of mexico and central florida.
    Fact: at one time the ice and snow extended all the way down to the equator covering 99% of the earth, only way life existed was at hot springs and volcanic areas, thermal spots.
    Fact: global warming exists, but not at all affected by man.
    Fact: the great lakes are more frozen than they have been in decades, Erie completely frozen over.
    Fact: we are on track to have the most snowfall ever recorded in Chicago.
    Fact: everything on earth consumed and expelled, created and destroyed is and including you have come from the earth, not a foreign place, and its there in the earth everything becomes renewed, by rain, snow, wind, solar radiation, ozone, ocean currents, the moon and most importantly the sun. Humanity is such a small part of the vastness of earth, and just a pin prick when it comes to the atmosphere.

    if you believe global warming is caused by man, or influenced by man. You are either promoting or selling something or you have a complex which makes you feel you’re important. In terms of the planet, you’re not important… this planet and universe is easily capable of cleansing and removing you. I suggest you respect your delicate delusions and try not to impress them on others.

He has to continue to back it. He is not the kind of person to back down from what he believes is a political gain unless he can see a political gain from it. This is not science it is politics. It has become a Democrat belief. I wouldn’t be surprised if he began using the “deniers” propaganda statement. Time will eventually prove them completely wrong. They will just push the timeline out until none of them have to answer for believing and pushing a bold faced lie. In the Bible there is a name for what they are doing. It is called false prophets.

Instead we have the coldest winter I’ve ever seen, throughout the USA and the majority of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere is likewise reporting cold temperatures. You publish graphs and charts with colors on them claiming warming as if that should make us believe you.

    Unfortunately for your position, the facts just don’t measure up with your claims. You’re the boys who called Warming. You kept running around screaming “Warming, Warming!” and yet nothing happened, and people just don’t believe you anymore.

  48. highplainzdrfter says:

    Hey Mike H., ever heard of a big yellow disk in the sky that effects the weather? The solar cycle is at a high right now, but the sun is not heating up this go round. Our weather is inversely proportional to the suns activity with a small lag effect because it takes a while to heat up the ocean. CO2 is only 1/3 of 1% of the atmosphere, you’re cracked if you actually believe it is CO2 changing the weather. And finally, you don’t send partisan hacks like AL Gore out to be chicken little, we conservatives believe this is motivated for votes and money.
