I gave up trying. Denial is just too deeply entrenched.

Our grandchildren will curse us for the devastated world and miserable living conditions in it that we hand down to them. Of course we will be safely dead by then. So will the billionaires who make more billions from the devastation. But their grandchildren will still more than likely be rich enough to afford the good life, even if everybody else is starving.

Well said, these people are blind to reality. Their whole life is dedicated to walking around with a blindfold & ear muffs so they don't see the bus coming when they are crossing the road nor they know when stepping over the edge of a cliff. Unfortunately these are the victims the rest of us have to pay for.

Sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars complained about the cold Arctic fronts causing an extended winter in eastern Canada & U.S., stating that the ice age was returning( a ten year toxic topix AGW denier lie).

Sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars, said, after the 2012 Arctic sea ice low, that Arctic sea ice recovered 50%, even 60%. Of course, it never did. At the time of the toxic topix AGW denier lies, proper measures indicated a temporary 15% increase.

Arctic sea ice VOLUME, as of May 1, 2014 is equal to "2010-to-current" time range. Average Arctic sea ice VOLUME for May 1, for the period 1980-89, was ~30,800 cubic kilometers. Present May 1, 2014 sea ice VOLUME is ~22,900 cubic kilometers,~7900 cubic kilometers less than the 1980-89 period for May 1.

War causes global warming. Increased conflict means operations tempo increases and more fuel, food and bullets are used to emit greenhouse gases. Wars in Ukraine, Syria, Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan and Nigeria cause global warming, not miscellaneous human activity like driving your date to a dance.

Yeah, no passenger-miles per gallon stats for F-105, F-16, F-22, F-35 fighter planes or B-52 bombers, like the 90-100 passenger-miles per gallon for AirBus 380s & Boeing 787s.

However, North Vietnamese soldiers helped, by riding bicycles down the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

It is true tho, that I have more science & mathematics than you ever thought about obtaining.

P.S. Hope all is well with you folks re tornados, etc.
Thank you, Space. We are fine, but it was like deja vu all over again when storms moved through here on the 3-year anniversary of being hit and then the day after.

Of course, you are in no safer place. I see the severe storms moving through your area just as threateningly, and my wife's son lives in the League City area. They just raised the house he lives in 4 feet, in anticipation of sea level rise, storm surges, and higher flood insurance rates. Even being a construction veteran, I couldn't believe they raised a 4 bedroom, slab-floored house up on piers. The cost! The technology!

Hoping you are on high ground, but for Houston, that's kinda laughable.

Deniers are either stupid or liars. I think most of them here are liars, though lying, when the ethics and strategy of it are considered, is still stupid..

Here's another footnote to that "CO2 is plant food" meme:

(Reuters)- Rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere may cut the nutritional quality of some of the world's most important food crops, researchers reported on Wednesday after conducting experiments simulating conditions expected by mid-century.

The amounts of two important nutrients, zinc and iron, were found to be lower in wheat, rice, soybeans and field peas grown in open-air fields where the scientists created CO2 concentrations at the level they forecast for Earth by roughly 2050, about 550 parts per million.
