The question was, "What Was the Carbon Footprint of the Presidentís Visit to NYC?"
Did you answer it? No.
Don't try again... you embarrass yourself.
Warmist motto: Do as we say, not as we do.
Oh I gave you an answer alright, it was just not the answer you wanted hear. Like the question talking about the President's or Al Gore's carbon footprint which is totally irrelevant only because you refuse to do anything about your own. Rich people can afford to be carbon neutral by buying credits even tho in your eyes you seem to envy the green rich but don't envy the fossil fuel rich. That is hypocritical in itself, if you have a standard, then it should apply to all!

I am glad I have dumb little minions like litethong and cavedweller as well as ritzcracker on my side, with global temperatures not rising and a brutal winter, I need all the fools, I mean followers I can gather on my side. Besides, I need more money to pay my ever increasing power bills for my mansions and fuel for my limos and big suvs as well as private jets I utilize. Keep up the good work you fools, I mean minions. Us global warmist need more cash.

Grow up and admit you're a global warming hypocrite.

You can't shower yourself with diversion, name calling, and puerile taunts to wash that stink off you.

Once you can admit the "truth", then perhaps you'll be able to handle adult conversations.

... but I doubt it.

Quit lying. You mangled an answer to avoid it altogether.

"Like the question talking about the President's or Al Gore's carbon footprint which is totally irrelevant only because you refuse to do anything about your own."

What a load of absolute crappola. A complete diversion and avoidance of the issue. "Irrelevant" only because you say so... which seems to be the guiding focus of the warmists.

So the "rich" can buy their indulgences, not have to make the lifestyle changes they purport will save the planet, and you give them a pass? Cuz... they're rich and can buy indulgences to give themselves a "pass" on having to make the lifestyle changes they say EVERYONE should be doing.

Gawd... google 'circular argument'. That's all you've got.

"you refuse to do anything about your own"... Really? Prove it.

You can't.

You're an idiot constantly making glaring, gross assumptions, simplifications, and exaggerations based on your preconceived ideologies about 'how the world should work.'

I'll sum up your posts with a few key concepts... socialism, nanny-state, anti-capitalism spread-the-wealth, income inequality, greed... and especially envy.

There ya' go again.

You've got no answers, but have to try and save face, so you dribble out more nonsense.

Feel better?

Never mind all the CO2 you put out into the atmosphere. That dreaded trace gas that's the ruination of the world. YOU can do so with abandon, cuz you gotta save face.

Yeah... there's a crisis.

And how would you sum up your posts, Inspiration and Innovation or cave man talk.
If you say i'm promoting inequality then that doesn't sit too well with your other arguments that i promote socialism. For a start if carbon was introduced as a commodity it would be traded like anything else on the market,(which is the Presidents preferred option) so life would be no different than it is now. There will be still the rich who have their toys and the poor who have none. That is of course unless you want the other option,(nanny state) where the government forces everyone to reduce their carbon footprint.
Either way both would work in making the planet a more sustainable environment. As you want neither, it doesn't matter what I post you find fault even when it matches your own ideologies. I don't promote socialism at all, what I do promote is that capitalism unrestrained will destroy the planet. Just the same as socialism would drive innovation backwards. Laws and regulations are the only way to restrain capitalism running wild and you tea party types think the cure all for everything is No rules, No government. Seems to be working well in the Middle east at the moment and other places like the Ukraine.

Goodness... can you mangle a message. Here's a tip... for each idea you express, please make it a complete thought. Reading you posts reminds me of the ball action of a pachinko machine...read down, bounce up, take a sideways glance then down but up at any given time be prepared that the next sentence doesn't follow.

If I were grading papers, most your posts would be a solid C-.... "ideas present, but poorly presented". Don't feel bad.litesong would likely get a D.. mostly for pissing off the grader by insisting what he/she writes is actually English..

But I'll break out my decoder ring again to decipher your post....

First, I said "income inequality", which more similar to socialism than not.

So... you support restrained capitalism? Should Al Gore be restricted selling his snake oil, so others can get their "rain maker" products on the market? LOL

As for your obtuse commentary on my attitudes about the planet, once again, you're putting your ideological mantra in for what can only be the case for anyone who disagrees with you.

This thread is about "global warming" and the alleged "science" that supports it. That "science" is chock full of holes, exaggerations, hype and a compliant media that love the "end of the world" headlines.. to whit "Hiroshima bombs"..And then there are the so-called "consensus" clingers-on, who accept that there's enough "science" on the books now to have spelt the impending disaster. Regardless if that proclamation of "settled science" was make 10 days ago or 10 years ago, it's settled so nothing can ever, ever change that... cuz, well, it's "settled" ya' know.

Ever seen those "end of the world" climate models? Do they match actual observations? So... what credibility do they have? That other "scientists" have made the same predictions? Oh... so the first wasn't wrong cuz the second says the same, even both don't match observation? Oh what! There's a third! A fourth! A dozen! Hundreds! Thousands!

Damn it! Even though they're all wrong they must be right because all these scientists said so!

Talk about medieval logic. Done any blood letting lately?

One last thing... just because some folks are hardcore libertarian who want as little government as possible, doesn't mean that someone questioning any type of limitation on the role of government must likewise be of the same mind.

Your gross generalizations really are... gross, that is.
