In September 2013, these shocked scientists forecasted for Europe the coldest winter since a century. As a result, we had the mildest winter temperature and the most tempestuous winter since half a century. Had they predicted the same for western USA, they wouldn't be looked at as jesters.
And you're so funny, taking cooling alarmists to fight warming alarmists
You got it. These climate experts flip flop from one extreme to the other, with only one thing in common: We're all gonna die unless we do something RIGHT NOW!!! Make that two things in common: higher taxes will remedy either scenario.

Whoa! Do I detect a little frustration? Go to the nearest logging show (that's what we call logging operations) and chain yourself to the grapples of a Caterpillar 528 Skidder. Show me the passion. You'd become famous, a martyr for the cause.

Funny thing about this alleged "crisis"... most the folks who claim it don't act as if it really is one.

Look at all the spokesmen (official or not)... like Al Gore, Sheyl Crow, John Travolta, etc... see them take commercial flights? Dismiss their entourage? Demonstrate that this "crisis" is actually real?

Nope.

And where was the acrimony over President Obama taking three flights.. one for his family, one for himself and one for his dog... for a family VACATION? And then Speaker of the Hosue getting a 747 for cross country travel because the 727 couldn't make the trip non-stop?

<crickets>

And the scientists, policy wonks, and experts who jet-set around the world to distant (and often exotic) locations to have a conference, a summit, a hearing, a meeting? When one of these events was held in Bali, there were so many private jets landing they had to be stored on other islands. Have not these super-smarties figured out how to video-conference, tele-commute to not have to travel?

Nope.

But it's still a "crisis" and everyone doesn't act we're all gonna die!

Warmists have a huge credibility problem that starts in their own ranks.

He's already a keyboard martyr ... having long ago sacrificed his dignity and credibility for the cause.

Obama will burn more than 35,000 gallons of fuel on Earth Day, emitting 375 TONS of carbon dioxide

President took Marine One chopper to Andrews Air Force Base and will fly to Washington state and Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday
'Earth Day is about taking action,' the White House declared shortly after takeoff
Air Force One consumes 5 gallons of jet fuel for every mile it flies
The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that burning the fuel emits 21.1 pounds of CO2 per gallon
Total presidential fuel consumption for Earth Day, not including automobile motorcades, is an estimated 35,609 gallons

Good that you showed Pres. Obama adding encouragement & support for the devastated town of Oso, Washington. & travel to Japan? Hasn't been a presidential trip to Japan in decades....... way overdue!

And not a word about all that dreaded CO2. Like I've been saying, warmists never criticize their own on global warming.

btw, you're coherent! Those meds help! Why do you avoid them so much?

That's right. And because everything liberals do is for OUR benefit, WE are the ones who bear the brunt. Obamacare anyone?

They remind me of Greek Gods sitting on Mount Olympus, looking down with blithe curiosity to see what effect their latest obstacle will have on the masses.

President Obama uses the same amount of fuel as Pres. Bush(s), but couldn't keep it in the Bush family, which is less than old 707's would have burned with less capacity. The increase in capacity is somewhat greater than U.S. vehicle mpg over the same period of time, which has not had likewise lowered fuel consumption.

Air Force One includes a medical suite that can function as an operating room, and a doctor is permanently on board. The plane’s two food preparation galleys can feed 100 people at a time.

Air Force One also has quarters for those who accompany the President, including senior advisors, Secret Service officers, traveling press....

Huh? So what?

You are ignoring (intentionally?) the point that Obama touts the global warming "crisis", and laments for reductions in CO2 emissions. Then asserting he uses as much fuel as Bush is a defense of Obama?

Nope. That helps my assertion that Obama is another global warming hypocrite.

Thanks for the support!

You know, you guys owe George W. Bush a lot. He justifies every evil deed Barry perpetrates and is blamed for all of Barry's failures.

that is a major problem for you whiners. You look down on people you disagree with while demanding they pay your bills and give up their rights and privileges.....while nut jobs like you wander around in the woods killing innocent birds.
