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!

Taken a leave of absence to recharge the batteries (recharged by fossil fuel of course) He/She was running on empty, had no new ideas so is probably busy doing research. Expect a post soon on the Ancient Mayan Sun Gods and how we should have been sacrificing virgins to appease their anger at us via climate change.

It's been the coldest winter since I've been alive. I'm only 25 but still I don't see much warming going on here. The earth has weather patterns that change every hundreds and thousands of years. It will be fine people we will never live to see anything happen anyways

I've heard the Great Lakes are the largest glacial lakes in the world.

Where did those glaciers go again?

Oh, that's right. They melted. Never mind.
