The more you run you climate change idiots run your pieholes, the colder it gets.
Please explain this lie.

How is it that thousands of people are perpetrating this lie? For what purpose would it benefit all of them? Why is there not one or a hundred of these co-conspirators are exposing the methodology of this lie?

You are obviously not using logic to reach your conclusions, but politics. Did you know that it was 120 degrees on the other side of the world and, by your reasoning, if you were there and went outside, you would say that global warming is real?

Media. You probably thought you were gonna be able to keep your heathcare too, didn't you?

Where on the other side of the world is it 120 degress? Africa? China? Saudi Arabia? Russia?

I'm sure its very hot at the equator right now.

If you went outside almost anywhere in this country today,would you say Global Warming is real?

Well, YOU probably would. Now that we have the made-up phrase "Polar Vortex"

It's so cold, because it's so hot......Please.

It still doesn't sink in with your deniers, the brain just can't fight the senses and come up with logic.

"It became so hot that the Australian Open tennis competition had play stopped after players collapsed and hallucinated cartoon characters.
Climate change is causing heatwaves in Australia to become more frequent, last longer and to be hotter, according to a Climate Council report:

"As greenhouse gases continue to accumulate in the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels, more heat is trapped in the lower atmosphere," the report states. "This increases the likelihood that hot weather will occur and that heatwaves will become longer and more intense.

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/southe...

What about South Africa:
Cape Town - The SA Weather Service has classified the current heatwave being experienced by parts of South Africa as "extreme", and has warned that it is set to persist until Sunday.

http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Extrem...

So what next Australia mass migrate to the cold of the US during their summer ? What about New Zealand or South Africa , do you have room for them too.

If the US electric grid gets to experience those sorts of summers that go for a prolonged period there would be blackouts everywhere. You should be praising people like caveman who put up solar panels or wind turbines to take load off the grid. Because to design a elec grid to handle those peaks would cost Billion$ more than what you are paying now.

Even when science says if nothing else, at least we can stop Mother Nature giving us the finger, you declare it's not possible. On what basis to you come up with that conclusion ? What scientific evidence do you have that tells us we can smoke as many cigarettes as we like and it won't matter, or drink as much soda as you please and you will still be healthy, or keep the lead in gas because my old pickup pings and throw as much CO2 into the atmosphere as you like it won't change anything. Tell us how you come up with these genius statements that not only defy science they also defy common sense logic.

Southern California was about 12 degrees above normal today. That's warm.
And I guess you missed Al Roker owning Rush Limburger when he showed the world the glossary from his 1959 college meteorology book. Yep, there it was, from 55 years ago, the newly made-up phrase "Polar Vortex".
Speaking of going outside, you need to stay inside and study, kid. Catch up, watch some media.

"I have brought my previous study up-to-date by reviewing peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals over the period from Nov. 12, 2012 through December 31, 2013. I found 2,258 articles, written by a total of 9,136 authors. Only one article, by a single author in the Herald of the Russian Academy of Sciences, rejected man-made global warming. "

"My previous study, of the peer-reviewed literature from 1991 through Nov. 12, 2012, found 13,950 articles on “global warming” or “global climate change.” Of those, I judged that only 24 explicitly rejected the theory of man-made global warming. "

NASA scientists say 2013 tied with 2009 and 2006 for the seventh warmest year since 1880, continuing a long-term trend of rising global temperatures.

With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years in the 134-year record have all occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the warmest years on record.

Al Roker just as much and idiot as Rush so whats that MAKE YOUmmm IDOIT.. Your problem on the get go is just watching Media and instead of using common sense and basic numbers in real is what you need to do, so you need to turn the TV off!!!

You Dems are funny in a sick way. Ooohhhh CALF was 12 degrees above normal. My god man are you serious!!!! The planet is what,, 4.5 BILLION years old and went through Ice ages and hot molten lava across the global not to mention only 1 land mass. And you base things on a picture form 1959 and that proves something in those billions of years earth existed!!!

Get REAL what simple-minded children you are. US have what, 75 million Dems that going to Save a WHOLE planet. What 4 graders you are???

What also kills me is the Dems choice of words. Climate Change. WTF the Climate always changes period.

You Dems are so ignorant and as usual not uninformed. The REAL story is U.S. co2 emissions didn’t change that much over the decades.

Now MORE real story Obama and the Dems at U.N. conference climate deal.. 120 countries signed on to the EU vision calling for all other countries to be accountable for carbon emissions. 3 countries did NOT

China, India. And Guess what Skippy Obama/U.S. did NOT sign on that climate change deal.

WTF do YOU know about whom did what. The TOP Dem Dog Obama walked away from all those decades of you dems thinking you can Save a Planet. You dems cant even save ONE Dem ghetto from pollution of trash in the streets

Dems are so gullible among your own. All this is about is Votes for the Dems by them acting like they are GOD and can save a WHOLE Planet. Try saving your minority votes base from Quitting and flunking school. If this doesn't stop in short time close to half of your voter base will be illiterate Quit school, Flunked School, On parole, In Welfare all there life etc. Dems hasn't proved ONE thing that they not only have NO clue about jobs and economy.

We will RUN OUT OF FOOD dim wit before we can ever hurt the planet. Look at Dems U.S. baby factories add India’s baby factories, Africa’s baby factories, South America baby factories.. Dems need to SAVE the Planet by stopping the baby factories that’s REAL, a 5th grader can count that food to .

Look at Dems U.S. baby factories add India’s baby factories, Africa’s baby factories, South America baby factories..
In 2002 Frank Luntz, advisor to re-pubic-lick-un candidates, told them to use the world climate change to make them more electable. Didn't work, since percentage re-pubic-lick-uns keep reducing. That is why "just he farts" worries about baby factories. The only way re-pubic-lick-uns hold power is through political scheming & gerrymandering. re-pubic-lick-uns, with a corral full of racists, still can't figure how they lost to a black man.......twice.

The U.S. cold has been explained many times to touched toxic topix AGW deniers. I like touched toxic topix AGW deniers to remain as stupid as they have chosen to be & I ain't their teacher. But its OK to tell them science, since they don't absorb knowledge. AGW enhanced warm fronts push hard into the NP region & high Arctic temperatures are common. Those AGW energized warm fronts force cold Arctic fronts down south on Canadian & U.S. regions & can even snow & set low temperature records in Mexico, & Central America or southern China, India, Iran, Iraq, southern Europe & Africa.

It's post after post from deniers that state NOTHING else than opinions. Not facts just a belief in a sun God. As for that genius who calls himself "justthefacts" when it's just another "opinion" ranting on about the birth rate. Well HELLO, birth rates in every western economy have been going down for years. That's the REAL fact, US only 1.9 which is negative territory. What that means long term, an aging unproductive population. Just like what will happen in China, who had the one child policy and has now changed that policy as they will hit the wall as well in a decade or so. A country full of fat old people who can't scratch themselves and keep expecting a shrinking workforce to look after them. So the only way countries can maintain growth because remember the capitalist machine must have growth to survive is through immigration. It's never about sustainability , its always about growth with economies. Otherwise there would be no new Walmart stores being added to the list or GM could only count on selling a fixed amount of vehicles. You either steal market share from a competitor or you have growth in your country for Capitalism to survive. What you don't understand with globalisation, that wealth (the economic pie) is being shared by more and more countries who previously had nothing. Which means your share of the pie becomes less unless that pie gets bigger!(world growth). That's the way it is, and trying to feed us BS about birth rates is not doing the country any favours. It's selfish middle class families who could afford to educate their children & make them productive deciding not to have them. So yes there are more threats to your way of life besides global warming. Also at some point someone needs to say the world population can't keep getting bigger without looking at sustainability for our environment and food bowls because capitalism is NEVER about keeping the status quo it needs that pyramid to keep getting bigger. But you need to switch off Fox and open the window to the real world before posting BS on here!
