Sounds right.

When was the last time anyone died from atmospheric greenhouse gas or a 1 or 2 degree rise in median temperature?
Often....... all winter long, AGW energy enhanced warm fronts, coupled to the Polar Vortex, were powered into the North Pole region. The AGW energy enhanced warm fronts heated the North Pole for 140 days straight, & had enough energy to drive cold Arctic air to the south, causing a misery of populated cold weather accident deaths & exposure deaths. Also, every time a heat stroke victim dies who would have lived if the temperature was just a little lower, was an AGW casualty. Every time someone died, just because they couldn't afford food, because major AGW energy enhanced weather destroyed crops & drove prices up, was an AGW victim.

Of course, "mudbuilder" was too busy building its 'posts of mud' to notice the dead, it repeatedly said, weren't dead.

Fcking idiot. Prove any of those lame brained scenarios are cause by global warming. People die in summer, winter, spring and fall. They have for millions of years, for an untold number of reasons.

The one question deniers still never answer is why did they single out climate as fabricated science compared to all the other claims science makes.
What made climate so special they have to dismiss all researchers findings and come up with fabricated theories of their own. That is what makes it so laughable, the very thing they accuse science of doing, they practice trying to dispute the results.

haaahaaahaaa

don't feel isolated with your pet hoax, son! science has been questioned before, and hopefully will continue to be in the future. that is the methodology of science. here are just a few 'consensus beliefs that were later proven false....just like agw will eventually be.

also, your pseudoscience is promoted for political reasons....not scientific ones. i mean, how in the hell does the earths climate racially discriminate?? too funny

I think we're skeptical of climate change mitigation because its never been experimentally tested and published in a peer reviewed journal. Same reason quack medicine is fake; no FDA experimental tests. I mean, if medicine is so important we require experiments to prove safety, effectiveness and discover side effects; why should we be less sensible with our only planet?

Wake up from your ignorance: global warming is raging with ever-increasing dangers.

You don't even understand the polar sunlessness.

I suspect it is because it is in variance with capitalism. Environmental concerns are not considered in capitalism unless they can be seen as an immediate threat to the bottom line. The RW has placed the market on the same plane as a religion believing that it can solve all problems. Global warming is one of those problems that the market will not address and this cannot be accepted by the conservatives. The only way they can handle this is to disavow that there is a problem in the first place, making it necessary to demonize the science that demonstrates there is a problem..

Well im certainly not a hypochondriac like you hippy weirdoes. There are more pressing issues than worrying about something that has yet to be proven. This whole issue is just something to distract people from the real problems we face as a nation.

your problem is that you think you make the choices for others, son!!

what evidence? that your evidence is still trying to explain why your last forecast...disaster...scientif ic model was wrong or not based on actuality?

btw....why would we let a smut from MS make our choices? are you ross barnett's illegitimate son or something???
