Nothing your write is worth reading.

Nothing. Not one bit.

But keep posting. Each one demonstrates your hypocrisy as you puff out more and more of that dreadful, evil CO2 into the atmosphere.

"Crisis", anyone?

You can rest easy Mothballs, they blame the Bosnia floods on the drag queen who won the Eurovision song contest, it was God's revenge. Not a once in a 100 yr flood but water not seen this high for a 1000 years. maybe someone should be building an ark.

He/she is probably also responsible for Australia coming into winter and in Sydney they are still going to the beach. All temps exceeded for this time of year for the last 100 yrs or more.

Wonder how the US will fare this summer. No there is no crisis, keep repeating it enough you may well believe it.

"motheaten", without science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in a poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa, can't hold scientists accountable, because "motheaten" can't count, scientifically or mathematically.

As always, the ones who can't, call the ones who can, "nerds".

Remaining “believers” and former believers differ only in agreeing if science’s 32 years of being “95%” certain is actual certainty even though the IPCC has never said; “proven” or “will be” a crisis or anything beyond; “could be”. Only science can have certainty, not a mob of you determined “believers”.
You crack me up with your "remaining believers" line. It's such a blatant lie and, unless you live under a rock, you know damn well it's a lie.

Here's something for you to chew on. Look for a whole lot of backpeddling and crawfishin' from your Republican representatives in the very near future.

Well perhaps you Mr. Know-It-All will come down from your ivory tower and address the huge credibility problem of your "settled" science.

Where are the warmists calling out the global warming hypocrites?

You know... the politicians, the scientists, the spokesmen, and the celebrities that, like you, say they have reasoned the science has indeed been "settled", give speeches, and make demands on what folks can do about said crisis, but continue on with their lives with no regard to that same "science" that (like you) claim is destroying the planet.

C'mon... step up. None of your warmist buddies here on Topix have even attempted to answer that question. Some have tried with diversions, obfuscations and loads of puerile name calling, but none have dared address the obvious hypocrisy.

They just ignore this obvious inconvenient truth, and post another "study" as if more "crisis science" addresses hypocrisy.

Thanks for the 2nd-grader reply.

"They aren't doing it, so I'm not gonna do it! WAAAH!"

You, with your access to all the conservative and teeteeparty websites, think that climate change acceptors aren't doing anything but talking. And based on those lies, you figure you get a pass and don't have to do anything. You don't think it's a problem because you feed on all those lies.

And because you never go outside your comfort zone, you don't know what they are doing to lessen their carbon footprints.

Now you'll demand that I prove that, and you won't believe any evidence that I bring because it would violate your already cemented beliefs. And I don't have to prove it. You've never proven your argument that there isn't a problem with the climate.

I only drop in occasionally now, to see what stupidity you guys are offering and sometimes to make a comment on that stupidity. There's certainly no use in arguing with you. That's something one can get bogged down in, the minutia and distractions that yall offer against the solid and indisputable scientific facts.

First rule of science is,theres no such thing as settled science.

Once people start spewing their settled science they are no longer supporters or activists they're zealots and demagogues.

And what we have from you is NO reply. NOWHERE do you hold accountable the global warming hypocrites, but whine about others who do. Where is your OUTRAGE toward the global warming hypocrites? They are undermining the "science" you hold so dear.

But I'm not surprised... warmists never hold their own accountable -- they just make up rules for others, and then whine when folks object.

Such a pathetic zealot you are.

More evidence that the "settled" "science" is neither, that is by example of the most outspoken advocates.

Thanks for playing.

Why won’t science say climate change as real as smoking causing cancer, the earth not being flat, comet hits being inevitable and evolution being proven? Our children deserve more than nothing beyond 32 years of “could be” and “95%” and only science can decide, not a mob of you determined believers who enjoy goose stepping our children to your exaggerated crisis.

Tell me something, does every tea bagger have the view that the gun laws are not strict enough, or that abortion is a woman's right, or that gay couples can be married. Are you all 100% against that ? Also does every smoker get cancer , is that 100% certain or does the risk just go up 10 fold. I'd say that's a pretty good reason to give up or not smoke but you seem to tell us that because it's not 100% certain keep on smoking. Now that's real smart

Whiner deniers would rather believe Fox and friends than the solid science that provides evidence that global warming is happening and that man is responsible for a major part of it. Why would anyone believe the science when they have Koch cronies to straighten them out? LOL
