DISAGREED with the statement endorsing strong action to reduce fossil fuel emissions. OBVIOUSLY there's no 97% consensus.

LOL. Science deniers are desperate in name calling.
We don't call our political opponents that name out of respect for history and the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust. There's never been an experimental test of climate change mitigation, that's how you can know it's a hoax and man made catastrophic climate disruption is pseudoscience.

LONDON (Reuters)- Global economic output could rise by as much as an additional $2.6 trillion (£1.53 trillion) a year, or 2.2 percent, by 2030 if government policies improve energy efficiency, waste management and public transport, according to a World Bank report released on Tuesday.If financing and technology investment increased, global GDP could grow by an additional $2.6 trillion, or 2.2 percent, a year by 2030, the World Bank said. Climate policies could also avert at least 94,000 premature deaths a year from pollution-related diseases by 2030, improve crop productivity and prevent around 8.5 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases being emitted - the same as taking around 2 billion cars off the road.
Notice how they change the argument from climate to economics? The climate is cooling now, nobody is afraid of man made climate change when our politicians are discussing taking away our cars, vans and light trucks with higher energy taxes; the problem is our politicians can't or don't want to grow the economy so why would we believe they can manage the climate? If a climate tax can solve global warming, then our climate wasn't broken in the first place.

Those geologists work to produce products consumers will buy, as opposed to climatologists who produce nothing more realistic than computer models. Still, plenty of speculators want to drive up energy and fuel prices to protect their colleagues and employers; think billionaire Tom Steyer stopping the XXL pipeline to help his billionaire railroad tycoon friends like Warren Buffet or Obama and his crony pal Jeffrey Immelt at GE.

GENEVA — There's a strong chance an El Nino weather event will reappear before the end of the year and shake up climate patterns worldwide, the U.N. weather agency said Thursday.
The El Nino, a flow of unusually warm surface waters from the Pacific Ocean toward and along the western coast of South America, changes rain and temperature patterns around the world and usually raises global temperatures.
An update Thursday from the Geneva-based World Meteorological Organization puts the odds of El Nino at 60 percent between June and August, rising to 75-80 percent between October and December. It said the expected warming would come on top of the effects of man-made global warming.

In addition to the $10,000 challenge, Keating also issued a lesser $1,000 challenge for anyone who could provide “valid scientific evidence indicating man-made global warming is not real.” This latter challenge isn’t to disprove man-made global warming but just evidence against it.

Show your evidence.

$10,000? That's it? You can't even buy a 2007 Dodge Caravan at Car Max for $10,000.

I would never date anyone driving a mini van that is 7 years old. Ewwwww.

The public relations tactics for the Deniers include:

•Attacking the science of global warming
•Attacking the motives of the scientists
•Claiming the rise in earth’s temperatures are “natural”
•Denying there is consensus among scientists
•Claiming cleaner power plants would kill jobs
•Making fun of former Vice President Al Gore, an expert on global warming
•Convincing the media into conducting debates on “both sides of the issue.”

I am not a science denier but you are.

The Los Angeles Times noted the campaigns for climate change denial and the dangers of tobacco contain many similarities.“One early campaign was launched by tobacco companies. Seeking to prevent government regulation of its product, the American cigarette industry created the Council for Tobacco Research to generate research disputing the work of mainstream scientists.‘Doubt is our product,’ said a 1969 industry memo,‘since it is the best means of competing with the ‘body of fact’ that exists in the minds of the general public.’ Fighting regulation meant creating doubt about the health effects of smoking. The strategy proved enormously successful, helping prevent most regulation of tobacco products until 2009, nearly six decades after the carcinogenic properties of tobacco were established.”
