Your problem is that you do not know the difference between alarmism and fact.
So says a spokesman from the 'alarmism is fact' crowd.

"Fox" in case you have been hiding under a rock is a generic term for right wing media. A word taken into modern day pop culture that ends up in a dictionary at some point. Much like "selfie" & "twerking" it covers everything from the Rush's of this world to tea baggers. In other words the ill informed ignorant. It's just easier to type Fox and everyone knows what you mean.

Who tells you this...Fox. How long do you think they will tolerate walking around their big cities with breathing masks ? It was the west who moved their dirty manufacturing there, they saw it as an opportunity now they have to face the same issues the west faced in the 70's with rising pollution problems etc. Sooner or later the piper has to pay, so you buying cheap $hit from China contributes overall to the pollution of the planet. The sooner you deniers come to grips with that the better off we will all be. Trying to blame them as an excuse to do nothing is as lame as your do nothing arguments on green house gases.
Hey dummy, look at the inner cities, people aren't working, they don't have any jobs. Crime is out of control, cities are in ruins. Why?, because Asian markets have put us out of business.

Are tornadoes getting stronger and more frequent?
Days of tornadoes may be reducing, which may indicate, tho extra energy is in the atmosphere, the energy is harder to organize into rotating tornadoes. Days with 30+ tornadoes however, are increasing, which indicates that tornado systems once formed, have more energy to utilize.

In truth conservatives sent jobs & technologies to Asia & didn't care about American workers.
In truth conservatives sent jobs & technologies to Asia & didn't care that communist chinese killed 100 million of their own innocent citizens. Conservatives dealt with communist chinese, who were twice as bad as Hitler & Stalin combined.

<quoted text>i don't have a problem, son. Apparently you have a problem with how some of us interpret facts. Earth May or may not be warming, but it has never been static anyway. Co2 is a ghg....a minor one, though. Man made emissions from burning fossil fuels is but a small fraction of that small percentage. I find it hilarious that some of you believe that placing a tax on that tiny fraction of a small percentage of a very minor trace gas would somehow alter what climate always does. That would be change.
I see, you do not work in facts, just innuendo.

If 32 years of science only being “95%” certain that THE END IS NEAR is still good enough for you to “believe” that science is actually 100% certain, then “believers” and “former believers” can agree to disagree.

All other things even, someone betting continually at 20:1 or some betting continually at 1:20, who will get the most gain?

You're right. Sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix lose. AGW advocates win.

So here we all have it. This is all you got. The truth and reality stings your tiny brain, doesn't it? You have no answers so you resort to this little tiny dick type of adolescent $hit talk. I bet your mama went for the two bits and mated with a tom turkey to generate the retrograde life form which is you. Beat it turd. Back to your love affair with Al Gore and Chicken Little. Either one of them are smarter than you. Have to be. They use you like a rented mule. Think how stupid you are. Al Gore uses you. And that turd is as dumb as a post. It sucks to be you, Eh? No life. Just an a$$ sucker to politicos. You know what you should do. Do it. Maybe it will make the news fun to watch.

Climate change causes severe weather? 2014 tornado count about half of normal
Posted on May 2, 2014 by Anthony Watts

Despite claims of “severe weather is increasing”, and even after several days of tornado activity in the Midwest and the South, 2014 is still below normal compared to recent years according to data published by Greg Carbin of the NOAA Storm Prediction Center.

why?

you deny all facts.

co2 in not toxic.

man made co2 is a minor part of overall co2 emissions.

you can't say what mitigation would do....good or bad.

you claim man made co2 emissions cause tornadoes.....but you can't say when that started or how it does.

you claimed the polar bears would be extinct by now.

you claimed hurricanes are more frequent and intense, bt they have been almost absent on a historical basis recently.

the scientific models are almost always oversetimated.

those are facts, son.

Fact check:

The concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere has reached a record high relative to more than the past half-million years, and has done so at an exceptionally fast rate.
