you're consistent....i'll give you that much.
i don't discredit the greenhouse effect one iota. in fact, being a lover of life, i'm very thankful our planet has this.
ghg's represent about 3% of the atmosphere.....of which .037% is co2....of which man made emissions represent a smaller percentage still. the claim that man made emissions account for up to 60% of warming at times seems pretty dubious to me. but that really doesn't have anything to do with the actual greenhouse effect, does it?
The "I don't understand it, so it can't possibly be true" logical fallacy.

Hypocrisy is Obozo flying in one plane,Moochelle flying in a separate plane, and the mutt flying in another plane.They have done this numerous times.Or Obozo going to one location and Mochelle going to another location.Why couldn't they fly on the same plane?They do not practice what they preach.Nor does Kerry with his million dollar yacht,2 private planes,a castle and four other mansions.I refuse to listen to hypocrites and their hypocritic message!You can be a sucker BOZO,now that's a good name for you.
So you decide to listen to the fossil rich instead? The same ones who fly around in million dollar planes and yachts. That's perfectly OK with you because you help pay for them.
It's good they have you as their spokesman, I mean you must have at least 6 homes by now with all that trickle down effect. Is it any wonder these people laugh & just pour their money into lobbying and the likes of Fox. All of which is designed to set off a chain reaction in the ignorant to kick own goals!

Warmists cannot understand that the blatant hypocrisy of their leaders diminishes their argument.

If it really is a crisis, then why do they not object to obvious infractions from every place they occur?... especially those who proclaim their adherence their "science"?

OK,*you* don't understand the physics of how a tiny amount of CO2 in the atmosphere can have a large effect on heat absorption, maybe there is somebody you trust who does?

Maybe the US military?

Rediculous accusation but if it were true, what's wrong with shutting the government down?

We did fine as a nation with a mouse size government before.

thanks for the youtube propaganda piece.
if heat seekers used by the military is your correlation to global warming, then you buy into the belief that co2 is a 'well mixed gas'...... which is a fallacy, son.
co2 heats up faster and rises.....but cools quicker and falls. simple physics.
show me a scientific law of 'back radiation'. i'll wait.
Typical denier tactic: can't defend one dumb argument so you move on to two more.

British study (Leeds University) predicts that global warming will cause 25 percent drop in yields of corn, wheat, and rice by the end of this century. Losses will start to be felt by 2030.

You are confused. Scientists are not almanac men, got it?

Long-term analysis is different from the daily. Also, you are focused on your US experience; other countries are doing much better job in meteorology. Just research some.
