More whinnnnnning. Get off your obsession about Al Gore. About your fingers, I think I know where they are....
Do you get a cookie every time you put "whine" into a post?

Oooo... and now a new word for the day...'obsession'.

But I guess Al Gore is just too important to you to dare criticize.

The sun is free. No radioactive water is bubbling on their roofs. Sure, you can reprocess/recycle battery waste unlike the nuclear waste..

Maybe. Conservatives are much more charitable than libs, libs are mostly all talk.

Stage 1: Deny the Problem Exists
Often when people are first faced with an inconvenient problem, the immediate reaction involves denying its existence. For a long time climate contrarians denied that the planet was warming. Usually this involves disputing the accuracy of the surface temperature record, given that the data clearly indicate rapid warming.
In the 1990s, Christy and Spencer created a data set of lower atmosphere temperatures using measurements from satellite instruments. These initially seemed to indicate that the atmosphere was not warming, leading Christy, Spencer, and their fellow contrarians to declare that the problem didn't exist. Unfortunately, it turned out that their data set contained several biases that added an artificial cooling trend, and once those were corrected, it was revealed that the lower atmosphere was warming at a rate consistent with surface temperature measurements.
Most climate contrarians have come to accept that the planet has warmed significantly. Unfortunately many have regressed back into Stage 1 denial through the new myth that global warming magically stopped 15 years ago (most recently exemplified by David Rose in the Mail on Sunday). The error in that argument involves ignoring about 98 percent of the warming of the planet, most of which goes into heating the oceans. When we account for all of the data, global warming actually appears to be accelerating.
The planet has been warming since the last ice age, that's why many have trouble believing your speculations, suppositions and theories that haven't come true. weren't we supposed to have calamitous hurricanes by the droves? pretty sure the fat man said that. Would you prefer I call your high priest big oil Al?

It hasn't cooled down either, grandpa. The last decade is the warmest on record.
The "record" you speak of is a mere speck. You know that, don't you?

You do know that even without all your cut/paste posts from government websites (closed by Obama as non-essential during the shutdown), you're still spewing more CO2 into the atmosphere, don't you?

Awww you lack comprehension.

Please learn what I informed you.. reprocess/recyle waste..

There's always wind, sun to make electricity... free, too. Independently, too.

What's there not to like solar or wind power? Remember the Japanese...

hyp·o·crite
a person who claims or pretends to have certain beliefs about what is right but who behaves in a way that disagrees with those beliefs

You're the one lamenting all the CO2 yet you're the one spewing it.

Next time, look up the word... you won't be so foolish.

Al Gore is the only argument you seem to be able to support. You can pull out your fingers now and try to find a beter argument.

Thanks for the gibberish.

>>According to Syracuse University professor Arthur C. Brooks, they do. Dr. Brooks, a professor of public administration at Syracuse’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, was quite astounded with the results of his own research, which was so at variance with the common perception of the generous “liberal” and the Scrooge-like “conservative.”

In his book, Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservativism (Basic Books, 2006), Brooks discovered that approximately equal percentages of liberals and conservatives give to private charitable causes. However, conservatives gave about 30 percent more money per year to private charitable causes, even though his study found liberal families earned an average of 6 percent more per year in income than did conservative families. This greater generosity among conservative families proved to be true in Brooks’ research for every income group,“from poor to middle class to rich.”

This “giving gap” also extended beyond money to time donated to charitable causes, as well. Brooks also discovered that in 2002, conservative Americans were much more likely to donate blood each year than liberals and to do so more often within a year. Brooks found “if liberals and moderates gave blood at the same rate as conservatives, the blood supply in the United States would jump by about 45 percent.”

When Brooks compared his findings to IRS data on the percentage of household income given away, he found that “red” states in the 2004 election were more charitable than “blue” states. Brooks found that 24 of the 25 states that were above average in family charitable giving voted for Bush in 2004, and 17 of the 25 states below average in giving voted for Kerry. Brooks concluded,“The electoral map and the charity map are remarkably similar.”
