When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore. Read more

We changed the global warming term to climate change. Our research is showing that the greenhouse gases are causing the climate to change in both directions and to extremes.

Please do your part by lowering your thermostat and taking mass transit.

Found versatile swiveling LED lights that directed light exactly where I needed light. Those three LED lights consuming only 6 watts each, replaced incandescent lights swallowing 100 watts, each. Usage of the 3 lights for only 4000 hours each, saves 1100 KW-hrs of electricity & $100. Cool!!
Aircraft manufacturers have done much greater efficiency leaps than the auto industry ever could do or wanted to do. When leaving on a jet plane, take the most efficient ones, a behemoth Airbus A380 or the smaller, but more versatile Boeing 787, both with a "passenger-mile per gallon" equivalent of 90-100. A future second design Airbus 350 should be similar in economy, a first design which became obsolete before building, because of the 787. The older but great 777, gives ~75 passenger-miles per gallon, whereas the future 777x, should improve efficiency considerably. All present & future aircraft tremendously out-strip the old Boeing 707, which gave roughly 20 passenger-miles per gallon.
With Skype and video conferencing, most air travel is completely unnecessary. You can "virtual" travel and save the planet at the same time. Also, we need to reduce arena and stadium events that are televised. Imagine how many cars we can get off the road. These are unnecessary trips. Televised sport events bring you closer to the action and in the comfort of your own home.

Well it sure showed up in China, a good example of how man can't influence nature at all. Remember all the crap about removing lead from petrol & higher emission standards on cars.
All you guys are doing is singing the same ole song that has been handed down from the tobacco lobby. Ants at a picnic, yeah right! lol

How many remaining climate blame "believers" does it take to change a light bulb?
None, because “believers” choose to remain in the dark about science’s 31 year old consensus of nothing beyond; “could be” unlike how they say evolution is “proven” and smoking WILL cause cancer and comet hits are “inevitable”.
Get up to date;
*Occupywallstreet now does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded and corporate run carbon trading stock markets ruled by politicians.
*Canada killed Y2Kyoto with a freely elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (a comet hit)
*Find one IPCC warning that agrees beyond “could be” and says “WILL” be or “inevitable” like they say comet hits, evolution and smoking causing cancer are.

LOL. this is the thread that keeps on giving. I come back to this thread once every60 days or so to read the latest alarmist dogma RE: Global warming or the latest politically strategic name change, "Climate change". All it really is , is a political strategy to introduce more taxes, and no matter who or (what) entity it is that gets taxed, the politicos know that the taxes will land on the back of the people. The poor are the most adversely affected, But they don't GAF, they just want to spend more money on a particular group of targeted people, so that group will vote for them. So they can steal more and ride around in limo's and fuel guzzling airplanes (first class), on the peoples dime.... And most pretentiously pretend that their worthless, fraudulent, lying , pathetic life has worthwhile content. After all, most of them are lawyers so there you have it. Truly the most disturbing thing about all of this propaganda is that almost all of the younger generation has bought in to it. LOL ! I'm glad I was born before punctuated equallibria caused what appears to be a sudden retrograde dna change that has left our young people with lower IQ's, greater gullibility, and vulnerable to the lies of our politicos..... Fraudulent criminals the lot.

A lot of you AGW acceptors are wasting time as well. You will not change the trolling, purposely ignorant denier idiots and shills here and could probably use your skills more productively elsewhere.
As for you purposely ignorant denier idiots and shills, you'll find out one day how wrong and how stupid you were. Maybe you'll be unfortunate enough to face some of the worst effects of climate change and maybe that will be a valuable life lesson for you.
I can only hope.
Thank you for playing. Come again soon.

The phenomenon of global warming has been used to explain many things, but now Mother Jones is quoting a study saying it might cause more rapes of women.

Matthew Ranson, an economist, avers that there is a historical connection between warmer temperatures and increased crime. He said, "Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime. We think that is likely to continue in the future."

Ranson utilized the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's projections of the effects of global warming in the U.S. to estimate that between 2010 and 2099, warmer temperatures will "cause" an additional "22,000 murders, 180,000 cases of rape, 1.2 million aggravated assaults, 2.3 million simple assaults, 260,000 robberies, 1.3 million burglaries, 2.2 million cases of larceny, and 580,000 cases of vehicle theft."

That amounts to 2.2% more murders and 3.1% more rapes. John Roman, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute's Justice Policy Center, agreed with Ranson that the warmer temperatures would indeed be a problem, saying, "To the extent that climate change causes people to be out and interacting more, there will be more crime."

Ranson elaborated that there were various reasons why the warmer temperatures would foment more crime, alleging that "warmer temperatures increase the frequency of social interactions, some small percentage of which result in violence," and people become more aggressive in increased heat.

However, Ranson also argues that the temperatures were no excuse for bad behavior:

The decision to a commit a crime is a matter of personal responsibility. Neither higher outdoor temperatures nor reduced police enforcement are valid excuses for individuals to commit criminal acts. Yet, from a statistical perspective, both cause crime to increase.

I know all the snow and cold brings crime down but ask the mayor he'll tell you it's due to the police and all the good work they do!

I've done even better than that. I transfer the cold from inside my home during cool months to the out side. Thus I am cooling the earth. Thanks to my ductless heating/cooling system.
And I keep up with climate change via the weather channel. They are predicting a big change in a couple of months from now. I think they called it spring or something.

I'm watching the "science" channel they said earths wildly unpredictable weather is due to the wobble in earths rotation and tidal friction what do you believeers know about this? They also said the moon is slowly moving away from the earth ,lunar change I can here it now!
