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

Otherwise, stop TRYING to change our planet and embrace the benefits of a warmer climate.
Why are deniers so dumb and blind? This forum is about the man-made global warming and thus climate changing.

You as a denier are trying to change MY planet. Read the new report by the UN. Then respond with a little know-how of who's doing what.

Good grief!

Ya' know... I can bring it up as often as you do.

So tell me... where's the criticism for Al Gore's carbon footprint? For Obama's?

The hypocrisy is all yours.

Too late! The UN report was put to better use lining a bird cage... or a litter box.

Ironically, if you didn't agree with the 2007 IPCC report, you were a flat earther and holocaust denier.

Now that the IPCC doesn't agree with their 2007 report, does that make them a flat earth society of holocaust deniers?

Eliminating government subsidies? That is definitely a good 'fix' for high losses to the public from 'protecting' the parasites. You must be one of the money suckers, aggrieved that you aren't getting someone else's money to compensate you for risky behavior?
I notice that most denialists are motivated by money issues. Either fossil fuel stock investment or a desire for someone else to pay the bill for their pleasure.
The losses have nothing to do with AGW, but instead it was that our government that subsidized flood insurance, thus encouraging development in flood-prone areas. The federal government is basically the sole provider for flood insurance, not private insurance companies. When you make the insurance cheap for high risk areas, then you get development where there never should have been any and then that leads to increases losses which then have to be paid out by the federal government. If the insured had to pay the real cost of the insurance to live in a flood-prone area, they wouldn't build in that area. The government has suffered severe losses paying out claims after encouraging the development of these areas. Now they are getting rid of the subsidies and the people who want to live in these areas will now have to pay the price themselves instead of all us subsidizing their stupidity.

No, LOL, it makes them keepers of science sense.

Science progresses, new assessment arrives! Lucky us to move on to action.

I call the models B.S., 15 years of no warming but continued CO2 output. What's up with that?

More heat stored in the deep oceans? Ever notice how this stuff works where nobody goes, at the poles or in the night when everyone sleeps? There's something wrong with global warming theory, the arcane ritual is unbelieveable.

Doubt it.

None of these warmists will even point out the hypocrisy of their biggest advocates (celebrities and politicians) as to their own carbon footprints. One would think that that would be such a tiny admission, but they all clam up and change the subject.

And don't dare question them as to their own CO2 with their incessant posts of global warming propaganda and irrelevant factoids.

They'd have to admit their own hypocrisy.

Which lends to the argument that if the 'experts' and spokesmen of the experts are so cavalier with their CO2 creation, then why should Joe Sixpack take it seriously?

If it's the same planet, why target some carbon producers, but not others?

Every little bit helps? Isn't that what they say?... of others, that is.

Sounds more and more like a phony crisis with each post they make. But they're too 'devoted' to see that.

Only an anti-government tea-party-type denier (who can't tell the difference between two different graphs) would blame the government for coastal development.

As if beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the ocean had nothing to do with it. As if swimming weren't a favorite human pastime. As if there was never a desire to live close to a place with surfing and sailing and fishing and sunbathing. As if international trade wouldn't utilize anchorages for commerce.

Like New York City and San Francisco developed because of government subsidies. Like the shrimping and oystering industries in Louisiana could exist if the fishermen had to live 150 miles from the coast.

As if coastal development wasn't 500 years old in the USA and thousands of years old in the rest of the world.

As if private insurance companies were scrambling all over each other to write policies so that they could lose money.

Government subsidies contributed to the building of million dollar homes and some hotels on coasts but that's what Congress was paid to do by their rich contributors. Why do you think some in Congress (Republicunts maybe) oppose the flood insurance premium rate increases now?

Some anti-government teabaggers seem to be in favor of shutting Florida down and killing the fishing industries of Texas and Louisiana.

Why would a denier from Florida, who can't read a graph and only lives a few dozen feet above sea level, favor the loss of flood insurance while calling his neighbors stupid for living there? Why would someone who lives where there are visitors like Charley, Francis, Jeanne, and Fay call his neighbors stupid? Would a denier who lived there ever wonder why the chicken crosses the road?

How insulated from reality must one be to believe that no one visits the polar regions?

How stupid must one be to believe that everyone sleeps at night?

How ignorant of science must a person be not to have heard of research ships and robot buoys?

As unrealistic, stupid, and ignorant as a person named, oh, say, Brian!
