Well, then you're a hypocrite. You're the consummate liberal. You've got great and humane suggestions for everyone. Everyone but yourself.
You seem to be good at name calling. Perhaps you could be so kind to explain how you came to such a conclusion! I was a staunch Republican before the Reagan years and the subsequent destruction of the middle class. Of course the teabags believe that anyone left of Limbaugh is a liberal. I am really an independent but no other party can get any traction. Big money and cronyism seem to control the political process today. The Reps buy into that today.

I call 'em as I see 'em. I see a liar. You see the party line. An honest person would join the party best suited to his principles. Not its popularity. You're a dyed in the wool liberal/progressive/democrat trying to wear the mantle of a moderate.

If you believe you're entitled to someone else's money find another method, this hand it over or we are all going to die routine is tiresome. Breaking into homes and businesses might be a start, people with money are crooks in your book.

Sounds like you believe in a secure border while we admit about 1 million people per year, right?

This shows the trend over decades. Where is the cooling?
Well, I suppose that those evil scientists throughout the entire world have spiked the data and only Anthony Watts knows the real facts. LOL, This reeks of a colossal conspiracy to do what???? Just another place for the teabag mentality to polarize and hate those who are smarter than them.
Yawn, the old NASA bogus numbers huh......so tired of the same old crap from you children.

You are weird. Why would I believe that I am entitled to anyone else's money? I have enough of my own. Sounds like you are just jealous because you have none and too cowardly to break into homes and businesses........

You are humorous. Just where do you get your numbers? Surely not from a valid scientific study. Limpbaugh? Watts? Spencer? Ball? Soon? Mockton? We have heard it all and they have failed miserably. When you `dis science, then it can probably be found that you are a Radical RWer, perhaps a Teabag.

Yes, your childish name calling adds to their credibility more than to yours. You are welcome to try and spread bogus manipulated information, that's your right I guess, but we don't have to believe it. Besides, it wouldn't matter what we did in America, when you look at the skies of Mexico, China, and other countries there is no change at controlling anything.

Can any "believer" prove that science "believes" as much as "believers" do and beyond science's 32 years of 95% certainty?

<quoted text>Al Gore is a climate populist with crony deals against every taxpayer and energy consumer in the Western World. Tom Steyer and the left's billionaires are speculating on higher energy and fuel prices but have been squeezed in a vice by cheap oil and gas from fracking.
Let the markets decide, not Washington. People can make their own decisions about fuel and energy production and use, we don't need government market controls to save our climate.
A free market allows Fox (aka Murdoch) to want to takeover Time Warner but media laws means he has to ditch CNN in doing so. In a real free market such as your right wing cronies dream about he could have CNN & Fox and any other media out let he could lay his hands on. Where would democracy be then ? People would be jumping off buildings with the likes of Hannity etc on their tv's every night. Governments always need to be in the mix with business as it plays a vital part in national interest. Climate change would not be even on the radar if it were left to the markets to decide.
