Then don't complain about money going to climate research because in the end it's no different than money going to homeland security or the army for that matter. However none of your lot see it as keeping American's safe. Like the man says, the US faces a far greater threat by climate than they ever will by the likes of Al Queda.

The price of carbon is too high to pay. Too high when you figure the illness and death caused by it, the damage to the environment, and the contribution to global warming.

The profit from carbon enriches America's enemies. Carbon makes the rich, richer, and the poor, poorer. The volatility of carbon means it's an undependable supply. All of America is dependent on carbon down to the smallest details of our lives, and that is stupid. Protecting the carbon supply requires American troops, equipment, and funds. Carbon is too expensive!

But we can cut our carbon use. Just do it!

Answer this:
[1] Why did those[sic] scientist[sic] lie in the emails?
[2] Why has the temperature stayed steady for 15 years?
[3] Why are the arctic ice areas growing?
[4] Shoudn't we be afraid of another ice age?
1. I don't know which scientist you are asking about. Professor Larry Bel?
2. Again, explain yourself because the earth has been warming steadily, including the last 15 years.
3. That happens every year with sea ice but the total ice volume is decreasing drastically every year under man-made global warming.
4, No, not to occur for another 16,000 years or more.

You are welcome.

They won't even admit Al Gore is a hypocrite preaching the perils of global warming but consuming gobs of fossil fuels as he travels from place to place preaching the perils of global warming.
As usual this is laughable, considering while he is not getting the message out there using the same mediums that the flat earth people use to perpetuate the myth we have nothing to worry about. What do you expect him to do, dress like Tarzan and yell from a tree where the only audience he attracts is a grizzly bear & a couple of squirrels.

Slang uses

Douche bag, or simply douche, is considered to be a pejorative term, referring to an arrogant or obnoxious person. The slang usage of the term originated in the 1960s.[10]

QED>> not related at all to man-made global warming. However, topix deniers are liars.

Don't bother, he is a tea bagger with a 100 sock puppets. They have to do this to appear like they are speaking for the masses, however to most observers they are just a lonely voice in the wilderness.
