Rmuse in PoliticusUSA:
One of the real travesties in America is that besides a steady stream of climate change denial from Republicans, the religious right, and fossil fuel industry, the profound level of ignorance among the population prevents a great number of people from understanding that ocean temperatures affect the currents that control the climate. It is nearly impossible to believe every American does not understand the simple concept because it is part of curriculum in every eighth-grade science class. Unless of course, it is schools where science has been replaced by the bible, or red states where climate change is portrayed as an evil United NationsÂ’ plot to subvert America and destroy the fossil fuel industry.
You use computer to post your nonsense about GW so use your computer to reasearcn corruption at the UN. It's easy and fun.

IPCC report: the scientists have done their bit, now it is up to us
The world must seize this remaining opportunity and act upon the timely roadmap that climate scientists have provided for us
So, there we have it. The seven-year task undertaken by hundreds of the world's leading scientists, who sifted through thousands of the latest peer-reviewed studies examining the causes, impacts and mitigation options of climate change, is over.
The last of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change's (IPCC) three "working group" reports was published yesterday in Berlin and the take-home message was crystal clear: "The high-speed mitigation train needs to leave the station very soon and all of global society needs to get on board," said the chair, Rajendra Pachauri.
This is now the fifth time that the IPCC has been through this Herculean process of summarising the latest climate science and repackaging it as digestible information for the world's governments and policymakers. The message from the IPCC over the past two decades has been consistently clear and compelling. For anyone to downplay or deny its findings would be irresponsible, short-sighted and, above all, a gross failure of risk analysis.
If the liberals and progressives would all just practice what they preach, we would be 50% of the way there instead of only 3%.

"Houston we have a problem". "SPACE JUNK" is polluting the atmosphere with it's flatulence.
Failing or refusing to do something on your own,now that's lazy. Typical of a hypocrit. plenty of proof out there and your refusal to seek the truth indicates your laziness. But you go cry to mommy son, another denier is picking on you.When you grow up and are able to put big boy pants on,and can join the adults at the table you will see you've been hoodwinked and indoctrinated.You suckers are so gullible.

maybe we don't want a one world government. perhaps we don't prefer a socialist society that relies on the 'giver-ment' teet like loser such as yourself desire.

what will mitigation do, anyway? you people seem silent when asked a straight forward and honest question.

Have you noticed, these deniers, rightdownthediddle, motheaten, Big Goof, truthless, all hate scientists, hate facts, hate truth but never provide any thing except name-calling or some trite repetition. There is no good reason to present them with any scientific findings because they are either too stubborn or too stupid to admit don't have anything concreteto offer.

.....and yet you feel the need to make derogatory comments about people with a different viewpoint than your own.

good grief....to be honest...people outside your pseudoscience camp fire seem to believe in science methodology more than your crowd, son.

you have scientific theories that haven't been tested, so excuse those of us who don't take a faithful leap like you into the pool of settled science, boy.

concreto....is that a spanish word?

why has co2 kept going higher when temps haven't if co2 is a driver?

No what we've noticed is that you kooks have presented data that has been manipulated or down right falsified. We "deniers" are not the gullible ones in this scam. We "deniers" refuse to be sold a lemon from a slick assed used car salesman (GORE). You suckers have yet to prove nothing, except the fact you are ignorant.So do excuse us "deniers" for not joining your circus.

"hate"... my, my... well there's a real mature argument. You're beyond stupid if you think that kind of argument holds any legitimate consideration.

What a dupe.
