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

My great grandfather used to record temperatures for the government from 1911 to 1933. He said they (him and his friends) used to make up numbers all the time because half of the thermometers were broken. He said it was "good enough for government work". He said he could tell within 2 or 3 degrees what the temperature was at any time.

He tended to drink a bit also.

There is no global warming. My grandpa used to keep those temperature records. He said him and his co-workers would just make numbers up. Said it was "close enough for government work".
He said the thermometers didn't work very well and were sometimes in the shade as trees and bushes grew. The shaded thermometers were wrong so they just picked a number that sounded good.

No need to worry, these days with technology they can drill into a piece of ice 1000's of years old and determine the temps then anyway.
It makes up for all that poor equipment used in the old days.

Yes this forum is about warming, and it's plain as day no matter what is presented even when you can't understand it you will still dismiss it anyway. However every now and then a post comes in ranting on about big government ruining their lives and we are ready for that too. And the Al Gore obsession just because he is a capitalist as well as a warmist, using the same tools to get his message out as the fossil crowd do. No problems with that either!

Warmists are incapable of having an intelligent debate if they cannot admit Al Gore is global warming hypocrite.
But if they can pass this seemingly monumental hurdle there's a chance they can have rational discussions.
btw, name calling won't win an points in the 'rational discussion' argument.
The topic is global warming, not Al Gore. Since you apparently have no valid argument against global warming, you must resort to deflection. That is the hurdle over which you so often trip.

The Earth is warming. CO2 is a GHG. Burning fossil fuels increases the CO2 in the atmosphere. Those are facts. Facts that you do not wish to discuss.

Don't worry 'bout the healthcare. No one, who can't afford proper food & heated housing, will be able to pay for the healthcare, either.........specially in the Native Tribal Concentration Camps....... just the way re-pubic-lick-uns rigged it up & wanted it.

Once again, you can't face facts.

Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite.

As I've said, over and over (and over and over), if you can demonstrate some critical thinking skills and admit this FACT you'll show you can handle more complex issues.

Until then... enjoy Al's hypocrisy.

Al Gore is fat?

Does that demonstrate critical thinking skills?

No, it demonstrates your infantile intellect "over and over (and over and over)".

And just for you...

If one attempts to debate a controversial issue, it's important to know if both parties can have the intellectual honesty and integrity to admit error.

I've been using "Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite" to demonstrate that some here have not the fortitude to admit that simple fact, regardless of how much evidence is provided.

It's amazing that no warmist has ever addresses Gore's hypocrisy. They obfuscate, name call, and engage in all kinds of diversionary tactics to avoid and criticism of "one of their own".

Care to step up to the plate or like the others, get all huffy, and take your ball and go home?

I demand intelligent discussion!

Look at yourself! What a foolish and transparently dishonest spectacle!

You approach to debate and discussion is to take your trousers down and take a dump.

You wouldn't recognise intellectual honesty and integrity if somebody smacked you round the face with them.

You are the hypocrite!

Your intention is to stifle debate, pollute discussion, to shirk honesty and integrity.

Well, thank you: we know your grandfather was derelict in his duty, and thought nothing of fraud if it lined his pocket and served his comfort.

Have you inherited the same moral outlook?

+++++++GOD NOW APPROVES OF SAME-SEX-MARRIAGE!!!+++++++ God has changed His mind on Homosexuality!. God can change His mind on matters if He wants to, there are instances in the Bible where God does just that!. This time is no different. God has certainly been answering the big Gays prayers lately!, with their recent Supreme Court victories and all. God wouldn't answer me, a Straight guy!. You know, I once asked God for a wife, 5 months later, He gave me a wh**e!. I do admit, I did used to blaspheme God a couple years on down before this, but I stopped this. I figured this was the reason God raped me. If God didn't want to give me a wife, He sure as Hell didn't have to give me that rotten wh**e!!!. Because God bestowed this evil upon me, my blaspheming Him returned with a vengeance!!!. I lay it on old God now and I don't care if I do go burn forever, HAHAHAHAHA!!!. I blaspheme God real good now. I do it more then I ever did and I am a might proud of that fact, HAHAHAHAHA!!!...GIVE ME ANOTHER WH**E GOD!!!!!!!!!.
