Full story: Newsday

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

You generalize too much. Most rednecks of all stripes probably are too smart for him. And why would valley girls care?

What is his attraction? He makes NO sense. Cannot deal with the facts. Isn't even very entertaining. Some may find him funny, but they could turn to the Daily Show instead. THEY at least admit that they are out for laughs..

I have been too busy with things in the real world to worry about answering someone like "kristy" - who appears to be an ignoramous who is immune to facts that do not fit her narrow preconceived notions anyway.

When I get caught up and manage to get hold of copies of the Senate and House versions of the Farm Bill so that I can find out exactly what each one does and does not contain I will write up a response.

<quoted text>
Whether its medicine, quantum physics, or sending a space probe to a distant planet. No one argues against those achievements and you know why, because it doesn't concern YOU directly. Global warming does effect you directly and clinging to one positive message in a 100 negative is not going to change the outcome. Your life style has to change and that's the bottom line. So when it comes down to the real reason the science is not accepted by the denier crowd is purely based on protecting a lifestyle of the status quo.
So every off beat theory gains statue without an ounce of credibility like those statements from Beck. Saying that God is punishing us with the weather for believing in global warming. It's God's Wrath for having those socialist ideas. Then the message of climate change is treated like the enemy at the gates.
I mean there is no answer for this stupidity and it's NOT science nor is it having an open mind. It's a sign that there is no mind at all!
It was a consensus in medicine that peptic ulcer disease was caused by excess acid in the stomach and treated as such. If we treated medicine like we treated climate science, the debate would be over and we would still be treating PUD incorrectly. In climate science, the debate is over on the "main contributor" of a warming world and there is only way to cure the patient; control CO2. But due to many scientific realizations that the climate science models have not accurately foretasted the future, such as the pause in warming for 16 years, the IPCC's next assessment report does reflect the growing uncertainty. Their new report will show the projections of temperature rises will be lowered. Why? Because there is a realization that CO2 levels do not have such a big effect as once thought due to a growing sense that climate sensitivity may have been overestimated in the past and that the science is just to uncertain. Sounds like global warming is not a "settled" science.

I like the Beatles and all but... that song doesn't really address my scenario.
Can you think of another song that might? Or, alternatively, do you have a scientific response?
My thinking on that song choice is that John Lennon wrote about his Utopia and your Utopia seems to be any worst-case scenario. That's what your post sounded like to me. You get mad when anything good happens because of a warming world, even if greening the deserts will help those who live in arid lands. Seems strange to me.

Oh lord...You wrote McConnell and told him the senate needed to compromise, so at that time, you must have known what you wanted the compromise to be. But now that I read your post, did you not read the senate version of the bill before writing McConnell? If you didn't, how can you write and ask for a compromise on bill that you don't even know what it contains?

hey, dude, take your argument up with the other poster. i'm just saying that you have a problem explaining ANYTHING you claim.

i would respond specifically to your post.....but you seemed to make an interrogative sentence without a question mark. not sure where you're going....don't really care. not sure you know either to be honest.

Fact is, for an experiment that is impossible, observation and logic will do the trick. Too bad you're incapable of either.

No, I haven't read all your posts. I know how you feel about the chicomms (never capitalized).

No, I'll be glad for anything good that comes out of it, but it appears the negative will outweigh the positive.

That's the realistic estimate.

I would have to assume by this that when the Atom bomb was invented and you were told "this bomb could destroy a whole city but so far it's only a theory." and then you roll your eyes in disbelief. You would also be one of those "Well lets just try it and see". With climate deniers they are saying exactly the same thing!
