Yep... When Gas gets to be 6 or 8 bucks a gal, and electricity costs at your house triple and the planet is still waring at the same rate it has for 7000 years and the seas rise at the same rate they have for the last 7000 years it will tell...

By the way.. Can anyone tell me of a Environmental Claim that has ever been correct?

Maybe I should have been more Specific... Name one Gloom and Doom Global Man Made Claim by environmentalist that has been correct...

Not that hard to predict a local event ... If I cut off water to the Napa Valley I would predict the farm lands will dry up...

But here are a few of the claims made...

Within a few years "children just aren't going to know what snow is." Snowfall will be "a very rare and exciting event." Dr. David Viner, senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia

"[By] 1995, the greenhouse effect would be desolating the heartlands of North America and Eurasia with horrific drought, causing crop failures and food riots…[By 1996] The Platte River of Nebraska would be dry, while a continent-wide black blizzard of prairie topsoil will stop traffic on interstates, strip paint from houses and shut down computers." Michael Oppenheimer

"Arctic specialist Bernt Balchen says a general warming trend over the North Pole is melting the polar ice cap and may produce an ice-free Arctic Ocean by the year 2000." Christian Science Monitor, June 8, 1972.

"Using computer models, researchers concluded that global warming would raise average annual temperatures nationwide two degrees by 2010." Associated Press, May 15, 1989.

"By 1985, air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half." Life magazine, January 1970.

"If present trends continue, the world will be ... eleven degrees colder by the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age." Kenneth E.F. Watt, in "Earth Day," 1970.

"By the year 2000 the United Kingdom will be simply a small group of impoverished islands, inhabited by some 70 million hungry people ... If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000." Ehrlich, Speech at British Institute For Biology, September 1971.

"In ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish." Ehrlich, speech during Earth Day, 1970

Your claims are outright lies.

You are not qualified to dismiss the evidence for manmade global climate change.

There Is No Evidence of Man Made Global Warming... There are Models that predict mans impact based on data... but models are no better than the data entered...

First.. Ice Cores... There is No Method known to man that shows which came first... Co2 rise or temp rise... The Theory is that Co2 goes up and that causes a green house effect and causes temps to rise... But in Ice Cores you only get a understanding of the temp at the time and the Co2 level from the gas trapped in the ice... BUT... if the temps go Up then decomp of organic material is faster producing more Co2 and carbonaceous rock outgases more Co2 as it warms up... Until there is Evidence of which comes first ICE Cores give no indication of mans influence...

But OK.. I'm not qualified since I have only studied the process for 15 years.. Lets hear from Some Qualified Folks...

If you take time to actually Read this it shows that the Greenland Ice sheet is melting at a linear rate as it has been for 7000 years... It has not significantly impacted sea level and has not drastically increased as was claimed for several year...
http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2012/11/14/...

This article shows the evidence and links to data that shows that the actual Global Warming trend stopped 15 years ago...

http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environmen...

And here we have 1000 scientist submit a UN report stating the Man Made Global Warming is a Hoax...

http://www.climatedepot.com/a/9035/SPECIAL-RE...

And this...
http://www.copenhagenclimatechallenge.org/

And Here 32,000 Degree holding scientist in many fields signed a petition that Man Made Global Warming is a Hoax...

Maybe you should not Believe those that are getting Rich from Idiots being told to fix what they have not broken... You sound like every other religious fanatic ... You Believe, Good Gia all Mighty, You Believe.. And as you help pay for the Priests of your religion to live in luxury and palatial home, fly private jets and have wine and cheese parties you will pay for it with higher food, fuel, energy costs and swirly light blubs.... Praze Gia and pass the plate...
