Notice how many time in the past two years that it has been mentioned in the news. A search shows that it was not mentioned by the main stream media and only found in fringe sites.
How many of the sites others quote are run by reputable and respected scientist and how many are run by those with an agenda and are biased. It could be said that everyone here is biased. On the other hand history has shown that many have believed in climate change and had man as the cause but expected different results or made predictions that failed to come true. How many like yourself claimed man was causing an ice age back in the seventies. They based there claims on numbers from the 40's, 50's, and 60's and blamed CO2 as the cause. Claimed it was cooling the earth.
I don't know which mainstream media you are watching (probably Fox "news") but they've been mentioning the hell out of it lately. In fact, there is often a special segment on climate change.

Maybe the less than a box of rocks, valley girl Teener only gets her news from Rush and Sean and the clowns on Faux Noose. THAT'S the real fringe.

Your stale argument is based on a minority of mostly media reports of a coming ice age 50 years ago. The real scientist behind the most prominent of those reports was a guy who later became one of the biggest anti-AGW proponents, Mr. Singer. He worked for the tobacco lobby too.

There's that agenda you were looking for; only, funny thing is, it's in your camp.

Actually.

Yes, these are probably actual economic costs of AGW/CC. It's just diffcult to "prove" that they're from AGW/CC, so the deniers will keep squawking.
Yes, it's a cost of burning fossil fuels, but it's STILL not reflected in the prices people pay for them. It's being externalized, & other people are paying for it.
The purpose of a revenue-neutral carbon tax is NOT to raise more money for the government, or to make people pay arbitrarily, but to make the REAL costs of burning it clearer. The real costs include all of the above, plus a WHOLE lot more.
Exactamundo! It would be hard (or impossible) to calculate all the repercussions.

Sorry, but at my age the foolish will never be that offensive. I also consider those who have to rely on name calling proof that you are the one loosing.
Yaas, dahlin', I'm sure that if we put it to a vote on who's the bigger fool, the results would be completely partisan. But while you think we're fools, we know you're fools.

The difference, my dear Watson, is in the science.

In addition, you think topix does not know what you publish. Attacks on me will not delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts. Do contact topix to satisfy your accusations of the reprint BS your posting of what I said. You are a dumbASSumption of your---self again.

Brian, Teener, other deniers on here, they can't help it. They watch Fox News.

Fox News Claims Solar Won't Work in America Because It's Not Sunny Like Germany

With Fox, it's hard to tell if this is ignorance or dishonesty. They must not know how to use a computer; that's the ignorance part. That's pretty bad, since probably 75% of the people in the US and the UK know how to use a search engine.

So it must be dishonesty. They assume their audience is stupid so they tell these outrageous lies. And their audience believes them.

I'm looking at snow covered solar panels on roofs here in Germany, they sure don't work when you need heat most.

Down with insulation and conservation, up with energy production and use. If you aren't emitting greenhouse gas, what good are you?

Yup, go ahead & emit all the carbon you want. You'd just better hope you're not in north Germany, because it'll all be under water. Bye-bye, Kiel; Hamburg will be in trouble as well.

Sorry, super BrainG, you gonna get more snow.

We're all emitting greenhouse gases, whether we want to or not. You Idiot.

But, Brain, in sunny northern Germany, there by the sea, the snow will just melt right away when the sun comes out. Right?

The climate in Germany sucks in winter, so I'll vacation in the Caribbean. We can't mitigate climate change, but we can move to take advantage of better climate.
