You morons are jailing hundreds of people who even touch an eagle feather, but let corporate green Gore'ites kill thousands of Bald Eagle and other soaring bird every year. Otherwise, specific pigeons are now either dying or becoming sterile after sitting on hot solar panels. Are you gonna just shoot them all? You liberals are IDIOTS.
The only thing worse than an idiot is a fool. You liberals manage to be both at the same time and remain angry, mad and arrogant at the same time. What a mix..
Worry about your own feelings. You are unaware of your ignorance about everything you mentioned.

Hey.. did you hear the EXXONMOBIL's CEO admits global warming is real?

I know you by your words, what you say and don't say. And how you spell and write.

If you don't want to come across as ignorant, maybe you should work on that.

Like answering the questions you've been asked and backing up the claims you've made.

But you don't have the balls or the brains to do either.

So by your definition, No Republican can believe in global warming it's just a Liberal idea. Maybe you should change channels because warming has NOTHING to do with the color of your vote. It's about science and facts, it only becomes political when the ignorant choose to deal with it as a non conservative point of view. In other words if you can make science political its so much easier to ignore facts.

'Polar' Cold Is Coming Back
By DAN GOOD | Good Morning America – 11 hours ago

Get ready to bundle up again. A polar chill is expected to settle over the Northern U.S. in three waves this week – with temperatures expected to dip into the single digits in some areas, along with heavy snowfall.
The cold spell coincides with a winter storm across the Northeast, bringing blizzard-like conditions to New Jersey, New York, Long Island, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Forecasters expect the first cold wave to emerge Monday into Tuesday. Another cold spell should strike Thursday into Friday, and the third wave is expected for Sunday, Jan. 26.
During the cold spells, highs are forecast to drop into the single digits or near zero for the upper Midwest, with high temperatures in the single digits and teens for the Ohio Valley. Overnight lows should drop well below zero across parts of the Midwest.
In the Northeast, expect highs in the teens and 20s for major cities from Washington, D.C. to Boston, with temperatures dipping to single digits and teens for inland areas.
Overnight lows will drop near 10 degrees for major cities in the northeast, with some spots in northern New York and New England dropping well below zero.
The new chill comes three weeks after a polar vortex gripped much of the country with subzero cold, contributing to at least a dozen deaths.
It shouldn't be quite as cold this time, so no polar vortex. But officials are warning people to take precautions, to brace for another week of frigid, spine-tingling cold.

Americans Rate Economy as Top Priority for Government
Other high-priority issues include education, healthcare policy
by Frank Newport and Joy WilkePRINCETON, NJ -- Americans have a distinct sense of priorities for issues facing the nation in the next year, with more saying it is extremely or very important for the president and Congress to address the economy than any other issue.
The enviroment was 12th in importance in this poll.So your junk science is not very relevant if it was it would at least be in the top 5.
My God the way you nutjobs make it out to be the world is ending.Hunderds of years will go by,you wont even be a memory,and they'll still be talking this nonsense.
Your facts just were not true. I made that plain. Nice try. Whether the environment is first or twelfth most Americans agree that global warming is happening and that future generations will uffer because of it.

You're lying, of course.

That poll is from January, 2013.

Polls sometimes go up or down according to the WEATHER. Polls really don't matter; the science does.

But it's good to have confirmation again that you're just a cheap-shot LIAR.

Most people are waking up to the fact that Global Warming is a man-made bullshit story.

Maybe most Leftist American believe it. They also thought they could keep their healthcare.

Did the global warming scientists get their boats unstuck out of the disappearing ice in Antartica yet?

Provide a link. I cannot find it, entering the information you have given. The latest poll I see is January, 2013.

Do you have a link?

Even so, polls don't matter except as a policy issue.. Only the science matters.

Yes, I have an opinion, and it is backed up by solid science.

We have a word for deniers too, we them "benighted".

"Consider a person who has heard about a scientific discovery that deeply challenges her belief in divine creation—a new hominid, say, that confirms our evolutionary origins. What happens next, explains political scientist Charles Taber of Stony Brook University, is a subconscious negative response to the new information—and that response, in turn, guides the type of memories and associations formed in the conscious mind. "They retrieve thoughts that are consistent with their previous beliefs," says Taber, "and that will lead them to build an argument and challenge what they're hearing."

Or

Maybe it's just natural cycles of weather, that can't be changed, no matter how much money you throw at it.

It's easier to fool people, than convince them that they have been fooled.

You've been lied to.

Use common sense.

It get hot in the Summer and cold in the Winter.

End of story.
