Seems to me the stupid ones are the zealots screaming about a crisis, even though everyone just keeps on with their lives -- even those same scientist, politicians, spokesman and celebrities that are likewise bytching about the same crisis.

You're such a dupe.

Blah blah blah show us the facts,you can't,there is no actual facts.Models? Anyone can put together fake models and impress people and convince them something is real.
Where is the absolutes? Where is the 100% facts that this scam is real?
The IPCC is part of the UN right? THE UN IS THE MOST CORRUPT ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!
Hell even celebrities have been caught receiving money to go along with this scam.
These so called scientist that get these grants if they decided to come out against climate disruption,climate cooling,climate warming,global warming (the name keeps changing damit) would lose all their funding and be banished from the "community". That is one fact that has happened.

And yet no one is acting on the "crisis" they claim is happening.

Blah blah blah you are WRONG.

You have no idea about climate science. You have no idea about the climate observations. You have no idea about the ongoing and first ever man-made global climate change.

Of course, you have no idea how to design and run a climate model.

A poll released recently reported that 7 percent of American journalists say they are Republicans. Indiana University has conducted this survey of more than 1,000 journalists every decade since 1971,

The Irony here is the Dems scream equality all across the boards to get votes YET their hiring practices in the News media as well as Schoolteachers is so BIAS and it screams WORSE then Prejudices Racism …

What behooves me is an intelligent person would WANT Equality in things, especially the NEWS outlets and Hollywood so one can be equally informed and hear BOTH sides of the story in order to make an intelligent decision. By Dems taking over Americas media such as they have created a type of dictatorship Hitlerism.

Now add close to half of the Dems voter base is either illiterate. Flunked H.S. Dropped out of H.S. Is on Dems welfare and or on Parole etc/ This sets up factually that a political party engine on one side being driven by Dem Elites and the other half is brainwashed and fooled because of LOW education/Intelligence

I don’t car WHAT side of the fence ones on, flip the coin and again the SAME serious problem could exist in NO EQUALITY in News reporting, So WHEN will the Democrats practice Equality/ Diversity in their hiring practices in Journalism News?????

So in your comment “No genuine news outlets and like most of the tea party people” is HOW in being a FAIR and Equal balanced outlet when the Neurotic Dems makes it virtually impossible for a Conservative to get hired in a “genuine news outlets’????

Obviously YOU are also brainwashed not understanding how Lopsided News is because of the facts I presented. Personally I WANT both sides of the story and the MORE Equal that is the better. The one can be more informed and NOT brainwashed such as Dems have created.
Now if YOU think most ALL news in Democrats controlling is great then sadly you’re the worse Koolaid drinker there is thus

What you need to think about is after all I’ve said in Dems war machine in controlling the News Media. Public Schools. Collages. Welfare, Housing, ect explain how ANY republican even gets into a political office being so limited in a “genuine news outlets” yet they still win elections with such little news influences. Imagine if the Tides were reversed and only 7% of the journalists were Democrats. Dems would never be in a presidential position let alone other in any other political offices..

(Reuters)- Unusually warm western Pacific waters linked to global warming may be the paradoxical cause of a bone-chilling winter in parts of the United States this year, a scientific study said on Thursday.

The theory contrasts with other experts' views, including that the freeze was simply a freak natural event or that it was linked to a thawing of the Arctic in recent years that sent a blast of cold air south.

"People's reaction when they sit under 10 feet of snow is to say 'this cannot be man-made climate change'," said Professor Tim Palmer of Oxford University, who published his research in the journal Science. "But there is a plausible link," he told Reuters.

He said a strengthening of trade winds had led to a build-up of warm water in the western tropical Pacific, aggravated in recent years by global warming from man-made emissions of greenhouse gases.

Haven't you ever visited Israel? Of course non-Jews are citizens and can be elected to office.

A Jewish state means Jews have historically lived in Israel, there have been three Jewish states there over the ages. The left redefines the term "deniers" for skeptics of man made catastrophic climate disruption to trivialize the genocide of six million Jews by Hitler's minion and excuse Hitler's evil.

I'm so glad you enlightened us on the how the news is reported. Does it ever occur to you that stupid tea party whines against all things Obama rates behind the Kardashian's as being news worthy.

As for the dem voter base being illiterate, check the chart below on the educated states. See how the Red states stack up against the Blue, with the exception of California which is loaded with millions more illegals than the other states.

Unfortunately, you are wrong.

LiveScience: It's been an extraordinary six weeks for climate scientists. Any lingering doubts about the immediacy of climate impacts on the lives of Americans are now permanently laid to rest, thanks to four extensive reports from thousands of scientists.

It began with a straight-talking, no-nonsense report called "What We Know" from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)— the world's largest general science organization — earlier this spring. The report laid out in clear detail why the entire scientific community no longer has any doubts whatsoever about the nature and extent of the climate risk to the U.S. economy and communities.

..

Climate change isn't a computer model, a fuzzy prediction, a cute picture of polar bears on shrinking icebergs, or some far-off, distant threat that people who aren't born yet will have to deal with. It's here, now — and it's disrupting our lives.

It's affecting food prices through extended droughts and flooding basements in extreme rainfall events — the types of dry and wet extremes that scientists have been telling us for years would be part of a changing, warming world. Now we can see these things with our own eyes, out our own windows.

It's causing farmers to plant earlier. Bird lovers are watching habitats shrink and change. Lobstermen are seeing the corrosive effects of both warming waters and ocean acidification change their way of life. Fire chiefs are facing the stark reality of bigger, faster wildfires lasting year round instead of contained to seasons.[60 Million American Birdwatchers Chase Ever-Shrinking Quarry (Op-Ed)]

..

Climate change isn't theoretical, or imaginary, or hypothetical or even political. It's just real, here and now, and community officials have to deal with it, Jacobs said. Seawater is intruding everywhere where it shouldn't, and local Republican and Democratic politicians have putdown their snappy, sound bite political arguments in an effort to figure out how to make sure their cities can adapt to what is happening.

Your opinion is again sans science.

Worse meant more conservative, i.e. the actual is dire.

What is extraordinary is that nearly everyone can now sense that the artificially contrived science "debate" about whether climate change is real is ending for good — creating space for the more logical, rational discussion about America's proper role in dealing with a significant, growing and increasingly urgent problem.
