You remaining climate blame believers are like Rob Ford because you doomers didn't even know what the consensus was that you were agreeing on.

The consensus that you small minded and cowardly climate blame believers use to condemn my children with is science's "consensus" of; "Climate change is real and is happening and could lead to unstoppable warming."

How is that: "Climate change is now an inevitable and unavoidable climate crisis." Not one single IPCC warning has ever said anything more than "could be".
Prove me wrong but science has NEVER agreed any crisis WILL happen yet YOU believers tell my kids they WILL be doomed to a climate crisis?
Nice work girls, even Bush didn't condemn little kids to an exaggerated crisis.

BBC:

he UK's Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) has urged countries to take urgent action on climate change, as UN talks enter their second week.

The committee, comprising 14 aid agencies, said Typhoon Haiyan was a glimpse of the future for millions who will be at risk from extreme weather.

It said the meeting in Warsaw should agree to rapidly cut carbon emissions.

But negotiators say such action is unlikely as a global deal is not expected until 2015.

The British agencies argue that extreme weather events such as Typhoon Haiyan follow a growing pattern of threat that points strongly towards climate change.

remaining climate blame believers...That one always cracks me up.

The right is the side that is small minded and cowardly; traitors to our country by stalling investment and research into sustainable energy and efficiency. There's a lot of money to be made in GREEN; just ask China, Germany, and Japan.

"Climate change is now an inevitable and unavoidable climate crisis." There, I said it. You condemn your children to the CO2 ovens, not us, LOL, "remaining climate blame believers".

Just how would you like the information presented so you will be convinced that it's real.
I mean Big Al tried a global message and you choose to ignore it just because he doesn't live on the North Pole with Santa. All we ever hear about is his carbon footprint which in itself is an acknowledgement that it makes a difference.
Then we have all the worlds prominent scientists and they are dismissed on the basis of a global conspiracy to obtain funding.
Any politician that takes up the cause is slandered as a radical who is on a par with Hitler.
Then we have the UN who get labelled as wanting to turn the world into socialism rather than address the climate change.

So how can this message ever be heard by tin foil hat wearers who just choose not to listen. No different than a petulant child who blocks their ears and yells when their mum tells them they can't have candy. Do you think we should allow the fossil fuel industry to shout their message using every medium technology allows while the likes of Al Gore gets criticised because he is not living in a tree house. It's not a one sided game we are playing here, one side is armed with buckets of cash the other with knowledge.
They use that cash to try and make that knowledge worthless but lucky for us , it only convinces the ignorant.

So lets see... you're admitting many see global warming as a religion?

Wow... that's quite an admission.

And why do you keep bringing up Al Gore... and the kvetch when people challenge his hypocrisy?

Please... don't continue. You make such a fool of yourself, and apparently haven't the slightest idea of the disservice you do yourself.

OTOH... you are good for a laugh.

Japan slashes greenhouse-gas reduction goal on nuclear shutdown
WARSAW/TOKYO, Nov 15 (Reuters)- Japan on Friday drastically weakened its greenhouse-gas reduction target, bowing to the impact of a shuttered nuclear power industry but drawing international criticism at U.N. climate change talks....

European Programs to Carbon [Dioxide] Emissions Fail
...
In Germany, non-hydro renewable consumption makes up 8.3 percent of total primary energy consumption[iii], but over 70 percent of this energy is replacing the decline in nuclear production resulting from a government policy to prematurely retire its nuclear power plants due to the Fukushima accident related to a disastrous tidal wave in Japan. German nuclear consumption has fallen by 16.3 million metric tons oil equivalent from its peak in 2001, while non-hydro renewables have increased by 22.4 million metric tons of oil equivalent. While the remaining amount of renewable energy may have offset coal and natural gas consumption, it did nothing to offset global consumption of coal and natural gas, which has increased.

Despite German consumers paying the highest electricity prices in Europe....

Report assumes oil prices to remain stable in the long run

...Demand in the developing countries will probably equal that of the developed countries of the OECD by 2019 and rise thereafter. Rising transport capacities in the developing countries is a major factor.

The report says that passenger cars in China will increase from 43 per 1,000 population to 320 between 2010-35 and the total number of cars will increase by 380 million units. Other regions will experience growth but not as much, and the global base of commercial vehicles would pass the 500 million mark.

The atmosphere isn't a "CO2 oven" and our kids can look after themselves. We teach them real science needs experimental tests when it advocates or produces technology and policies. We don't use pills untested by the FDA and we don't buy hoax climate change mitigation that's never been tried or tested.
