It's called accountability. I'm not surprised you haven't heard of it. No warmists practice what they preach. I daresay if SB, yourself or the host of phonies were "doing their part" we'd have long heard about it.

Do continue... you do nothing to further your "science" and add CO2 into the atmosphere to boot.

What a phony.

Tom DeLay was exonerated, the charges were found politically motivated and vacated.

You know Ken Lay donated to Clinton's campaign?

Nope.

"But Mr. DeLay’s long and colorful life took another turn on Thursday as a Texas appeals court threw out the November 2010 verdict, ruling that what he was convicted of — laundering corporate contributions to divert money to elect Republicans to the State Legislature — did not violate any state laws. "

Which only goes to show that Texas law is an ass...

Probably Rick Perry is counting on that..

Yep, the court ruled him exonerated, falsely convicted with a misdirected verdict. Tom DeLay is innocent according to law.

Politicians have the right to solicit and spend contributions. Governors have the right to veto wasteful government spending and freedom of speech to promise veto of funding for the office of a convicted drunk driver. Rick Perry is counting on exoneration, so am I.

Agreed.

This is an excellent expression that clarifies the ills of ever-dwindling number of science deniers.

You, perhaps, are the BIGGEST science "denier". All the posts you make about "science" don't stop you from posting more, thereby releasing MORE CO2 into the atmosphere that the 'science' you cite is already at "crisis" levels.

Hypocrite.

.. back to the forum..

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.

Why bother?

We all know your a hypocrite... that all the "science" you promote won't change your habits on iota. You'll keep spewing more and more CO2 into the atmosphere all the while arguing that your 'science' says folks should do less of that.

How can you live with your phony concern?

We'll see what happens. Texas justice is severe for the public.

Perry apparently cut public funding of his county DA's office. He's out of office in January to devote his life to clear his name.

Glad that "motheaten", a sleepy sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liar, with its lack of science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra & pre-calc in its poorly earned hi skule DEE-ploooma, believes science is gibberish. "motheaten" is a prime candidate to agree with the errors of "lyin' brian", which are 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, 73+ million TIMES, 2.5+ trillion TIMES, & 3.5+ trillion TIMES.

And it will be no minor irony that Perry, who came into statewide office as the result of a grand jury investigation, might just end his carer as an outcome of the same process.
