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

This is an open statement to all the Apostles of CAGW. I was once an Apostate who had left the fold in search of a new truth. I believe I am ready to return and accept The CO2 Knob as our salvation.

One might ask...'What made you see the error of your way, my child?'
The answer is GOOGLE.
Yes, I typed the following and all my questions were answered:
Global warming and Mental Illness.

Yes! Praise the CO2 Knob! Studies show CAGW CAUSES MENTAL ILLNESS.
This explaines everything. If CAGW believers are mentally ill then it is likely that CAGW CAUSED IT... This proves CAGW is real.

It is good to be back among The True Believers.

Only a true moron would think that "mitigation" would make something worse or "do more harm than good," in your words.

And I tell the truth here: I am trading my Ford F250 dually on a new F350 dually with the biggest diesel engine Ford makes today. I will strip off the economy-robbing pollution garbage on the engine just like I have every other vehicle I have ever owned (yep, got the warranty concerns covered too). I have a huge toy hauler for ATV's and camping. Then, off to Wyoming, Montana, and South Dakota to scout spots for hunting antelope and mule deer. Oh... I will also do a great deal of fishing and varmint hunting while on this expedition. After, I will return to my home in the country and my comfy office in a downtown high rise. Do I have a point? No, other than watching the global whiners rant about what a demon people like me are. Since I have as many (probably more) degrees than the most educated of the whiners, I will simply "dismiss" and "fire" them... as if that means anything on an anonymous and public forum. It is so funny how emotional global whiners are, and the folks they label as "deniers" maintain their sense of humor. Brian_G, keep up the good comments and posts.

What we normally forget when talking about the amount of CO2, is the significance it has for the human (and other creatures) health. Above 425 ppm in the atmossphere the healthproblems will become more servere, because the blood will slowly be more acid. This will affect bloodpressure etc.
BTW: President Johnson was informed in 1965 about the dangers in increasing the amount of CO2.
Don't worry my fellow downtown New Yorkers there will be another Superstorm long before you drink CO2. That will be the final nail in the floatsom for you. If that does not happen a tsunami will. While we are all waiting for the demise you will likely have many power outages this summer due to the overuse of AC and all the nasty things that go along with over heating the BOD.

Have a great trip! I haven't been to Yellowstone since '08, but plan to go in August. Yes, Brian G keeps swatting the pesky gnats with no emotion whatsoever. He makes it look even easier than it is.

University of Mainz in Germany surveyed climate scientists and found only 10% claimed climate models are "sufficiently accurate" and a mere 15% said that "climatic processes are understood enough" to allow climate to be calculated.

That's advertising jargon, just because you call taxing our fossil fuel use, capping our CO2 emissions, spending taxpayer dollars on green energy and carbon sinks doesn't mean it will do any good at all. There's no way to tell without experimental tests.

haha you did not comprehend his post.

This is why "they" are replacing you with ritey, no? On the other hand, it's a twin sans science. Maybe to double your irrelevance.

Trolling is the denier game, yes?

Does it ever make you wonder the very things you love about nature right now you are helping to destroy by an obsession with BS. You expect your government to protect you yet will no co-operate with government rules because you feel it doesn't apply to you. Same as driving 100 in a 60 zone, its all about the freedom.

Well good luck with your camping trip and enjoy the view because not long into the future the same view will only be from snapshots.
Especially once the fracking drillers and oil companies go wandering around in national parks to keep up with your addiction.
