Full story: Newsday

When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

LOL, it messes up others' posts because the above troll can't even copy and paste.
As you say. While attempting easy copy & paste,'phud feces face' misspells & uses bad English, to the point of incomprehension.

Other reasons for the inabilities of 'phud feces face' are:

'phud feces face' has no thought process, itself. It needs a place to begin a retort. As much as he hated dirtling, they had much in common. As dirtling was 'earthling has no brain','phud feces face' is on minimal life support without a brain to operate basic functions.

As dirtling is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig,'phud feces face' defends slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pigs.

Well, why don't they just slap a five dollar a gallon tax on gasoline. It would cut auto and truck usage, balance the budget and propel our society back to the stone age (or at least the Amish Age) at a great rate of knots. What is left of our economy would grind to a screeching halt and hence no more pollution. Frozen bodies all over the northeast I suppose. Oh well, no plan is perfect.
How about broading the Tax Base and lowering Tax Rates (does this sound familiar). Replace the gasoline/diesel tax with a carbon tax. John Maynard Keynes said "The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that still carries any reward." American Busines has plenty of intellectual power,they will find a way to pay less taxes (hopefully via technology not bribing Congress).

(The United States federal excise tax on gasoline is 18.4 cents per gallon and 24.4 cents per gallon for diesel fuel. On average, as of October 2012, state and local taxes add 30.9 cents to gasoline and 30.1 cents to diesel, for a total US average fuel tax of 49.3 cents per gallon for gas and 54.5 cents per gallon for diesel.)

Estimated cost of the drought the past couple of years?$80 billion.

Global warming is taxing us already. Every time we go to the grocery store.

Interesting, but you cannot equate what is happening today with historical happenings. Nowhere in the past has there been the amount of CO2 been as rapidly released into the atmosphere by the burning of fossilized fuel as we see today....
Volcanoes release CO2, there are several supervolcanoes in America. I've visited Valles Caldera in New Mexico, you can find more information about it here:

Again this could be an issue caused by that car crash you were involved in. All are begging you get that check up from the neck up before itís too late.

Measurements show that we are placing 100 times as much CO2 into the air as existing volcanoes. Super volcanoes are estimated to be about 100 times as powerful as the average. So perhaps there have been a few times that CO2 release by volcanoes has exceeded the existing rate. But we have been releasing CO2 annually for many years. The point is that we are releasing enough to alter the composition and effects of the atmosphere.

Did you forget to about the check up from the neck up? You know after a bad car crash you were in there could be an underlined issue that would explain your mental deficiency.

So how did you measure the volcanoes before there were methods of measurements? Also you use words like perhaps and estimated. That in itself tells all that you really really don't know.Try saying in my opinion.

We do know very closely how much CO2 is released by the burning fossil fuels and how the concentration of CO2 is increasing in the atmosphere. Our estimates of the amount of CO2 released by previous volcanoes is based upon what we know about existing volcanoes and from evidence in ice bubbles and other proxies. Those are not blind guesses but reasoned conclusions. Are they exact, no, but they are much better than the blind opinion of a trollish mole.

Now that you said they are not exact and conclusions that"s my argument, no one really really knows. So should we take your word for it or take the word of the opposing argument.

First, it is not my word, but that of scientists who have studied and measured as carefully as possible. We may not know exactly how much radiation would kill you but we do know that if the level exceeds a certain amount that your life is going to be compromised.

Science is never exact. It is simply what we perceive from observations and logic. However, we must live in the universe as we do perceive it. For example, we expect a mass to remain at rest or move at a uniform velocity unless it is acted upon by an outside force.

We also expect the ocean to continue to become more acidic as we increase the level of CO2 in the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels. We also expect the Earth to warm as the CO2 increases. To do otherwise would be in direct opposition of our understandings of universal perceptions. To not accept this would be to disregard all human understandings of our existence and a total disregard for science and Western philosophy. If that were to be so, what would be its replacement?

More spins of science that use words like my opinion, maybe, could be, should be and wanna be.Science corrects errors to discover more errors to their correted errors are in error. Do we really really know human understandings? Stay tuned a new replacent will be out soon real soon.

Science will find a replacement in it self. They, Scientist find corrections to errors to discover that their corrections are in error. I'm sure they will discover a replacement for themselves.
