Evidently the independents are liberals also! 65% of Americans understand that global warming will be a problem for future generations. BTW, I am a registered Republican but since the Party has abandoned sanity, I vote as an independent........

The RW activists are a dying breed.

"formentation" LOL, that it is what called when you apply heat and moisture apply to a boil! But I suppose this would be a good method of drawing the poison out of you anti-science activists.

You need to watch "Day After Tomorrow". Get the facts right.

Iceland may be underwater soon. Baseball size hail in Tokyo. The consequences go on and on.

The film's scientific adviser was Dr. Michael Molitor, a leading climate change consultant who worked as a negotiator on the Kyoto Protocol.

Progressives and Global Warming morons are a bigger threat to future generations.

I don't care what you political affiliations are. You're just wrong.

The more you try to push this theory, the colder it gets.

You know what movie you should watch? Rubin and Ed. F'n hilarious.

You know what I hate?

Is when I have a glass of ice tea, and all the ice melts and overflows my glass.

If the ice melts, sea levels will actually drop. Since water is gthe only substance on earth that expands when it freezes.

Anyone else?

Put some meat behind that cowboy! 98% of the climate from around the world agree that global warming is happening and that man is contributing to that warming. All the great science academies around the entire world also concur. If you can find a convincing rebuttal let's hear it. Please no more RW platitudes. Just good solid information.

They're not platitudes.

It's called common sense.

It get hot in Summer, cold in the Winter.

Mother Nature will do whatever it wants to. You, Al Gore, and all the dipshit global warming so-called scientists, are talikng out your asses.

You can't control Mother Nature.

This one is the latest:

(Reuters)- A group of business leaders, energy experts and former government leaders believes that the Obama administration could tackle climate change by taking measures that do not require congressional approval, according to a report released on Tuesday.

The 207-page report contained about 200 recommendations on how President Barack Obama can use executive authority to advance the climate change action plan he announced in June. It was released by former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, who briefed U.S. cabinet officials and senior policy staff focused on energy and climate policy last week.

The recommendations focus on five areas: doubling energy efficiency; financing renewable energy; producing natural gas more responsibly; developing alternative fuels and vehicles; and helping utilities adapt to the country's changed energy landscape.

That would only apply to sea ice or ice floating on the water. And the level will not go down. Level will remain the same. Witch doesn't prove or disprove GW.
It's easier to fool people, then to convince them they have been fooled.

The only thing "dbunker" can debunk is when it falls out of its upper bunk, like boys & girls. As for the 70's, 44 Science Papers were published on global warming, & only 7 papers were written on global cooling. "dbunker" stayed in the cupboard instead of taking science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra & pre-calc in its poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa.
