No you give yourselves the "Ignorant" label just by what you type. If it was something meaningful or challenging that gave a rational explanation why all these 1000's of scientists are involved in some world wide conspiracy to gain funding and control the world. Including the ones in China who have passed the US now with emission pollution.
"Chinese state media said on Thursday that construction workers are en route to the future site of China’s fourth Antarctic research station, after a pit stop at one of its other bases. The new station will be a hub for climate change science"
Make you wonder why they would bother, don't you think they would be listening to Rush telling us its all a hoax. After all they are commies, they know how to control billions of people with their propaganda machine. Why not relay Rush or Beck to let them know the truth. This is something you deniers just can't handle, you can give us crap about volcanoes and pole shifts but you can never nail why all political persuasions (except extreme right wingers) see climate change as a serious problem.
their ya go callin names typical. So read agenda 21 and report back !

It must be like drinking poison for you deniers listening to Obama's State of the Union address. More American homes with solar panels, gas powered trucking & especially the statement "Climate change is REAL and we are going to do something about it". Poor ole Bonehead speaker couldn't bring himself to clap. Because he knows the poor ole fossil fuel deniers are looking down the barrel right now and there is no where to run.
What listening to King Oblamer,I've got a lot more important things to do than waste 65 min of my time on his same old song and dance.He's a lame duck,actually he's just lame.

With all the racists voting re-pubic-lick-un, re-pubic-lick-uns still can't figure out how they lost to a black man, not once, but twice. re-pubic-lick-uns are percentage-wise decreasing & only hang on to power by political maneuvering & gerrymandering.

Warm fronts push hard into the high Arctic NP, with temperatures that have been over temperature for 140 days. Presently, while International Falls, Minnesota is -41degF, the high Arctic above the 80th parallel averages 11defC(20 degF) over the normal. The warm fronts strongly push Arctic cold unto Canada & the U.S. AND why you have cold toes in Wisconsin. In 2009 Arctic sea ice quantity melted in January with temperatures 14degC over the average, while the warm fronts pushed Arctic cold south AND Maine set its all-time recorded low temperature of -50degF.
Update:

Arctic sea ice extent, 13,511,482 km2(January 28, 2014), again a consecutive day's, & even greater LOSS, Maryland-sized, due to wide spread Arctic warming & sweeping Arctic cold southward. Warm fronts push into the high Arctic, average temperature above the 80th parallel to -17degC., 12degC(22degF) over average, its highest for the last month, which has been well over average, anyhow. The warm fronts flush much Arctic cold south, MAGADAN, RUSSIA, at -41degC(-42degF) & to the U.S. The sun is 10 diameters north of its yearly most southern position.

Climate alarmism isn't about saving the planet.
It's about promoting the socialist agenda.

No wonder you deniers can't sleep at night and it's not worrying about what is happening to the planet. It's all those nightmares about socialists and living in boxes under agenda 21. Do you also visualise the stars & stripes being lowered and the UN flag raised?. Yeah I thought so!
