Perhaps the most inconvenient fact is the lack of global warming for well over 10 years now. This is known to the warming establishment, as one can see from the 2009 "Climategate" email of climate scientist Kevin Trenberth: "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't." But the warming is only missing if one believes computer models where so-called feedbacks involving water vapor and clouds greatly amplify the small effect of CO2.
The lack of warming for more than a decade—indeed, the smaller-than-predicted warming over the 22 years since the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) began issuing projections—suggests that computer models have greatly exaggerated how much warming additional CO2 can cause. Faced with this embarrassment, those promoting alarm have shifted their drumbeat from warming to weather extremes, to enable anything unusual that happens in our chaotic climate to be ascribed to CO2.

Claude Allegre, former director of the Institute for the Study of the Earth, University of Paris; J. Scott Armstrong, cofounder of the Journal of Forecasting and the International Journal of Forecasting; Jan Breslow, head of the Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism, Rockefeller University; Roger Cohen, fellow, American Physical Society; Edward David, member, National Academy of Engineering and National Academy of Sciences; William Happer, professor of physics, Princeton; Michael Kelly, professor of technology, University of Cambridge, U.K.; William Kininmonth, former head of climate research at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology; Richard Lindzen, professor of atmospheric sciences, MIT; James McGrath, professor of chemistry, Virginia Technical University; Rodney Nichols, former president and CEO of the New York Academy of Sciences; Burt Rutan, aerospace engineer, designer of Voyager and SpaceShipOne; Harrison H. Schmitt, Apollo 17 astronaut and former U.S. senator; Nir Shaviv, professor of astrophysics, Hebrew University, Jerusalem; Henk Tennekes, former director, Royal Dutch Meteorological Service; Antonio Zichichi, president of the World Federation of Scientists, Geneva.
Knowledge is power.
The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) from the UN Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC) is due next month. The leaks are already here:

Drafts seen by Reuters of the study by the UN panel of experts, due to be published next month, say it is at least 95 percent likely that human activities – chiefly the burning of fossil fuels – are the main cause of warming since the 1950s.
That is up from at least 90 percent in the last report in 2007, 66 percent in 2001, and just over 50 in 1995, steadily squeezing out the arguments by a small minority of scientists that natural variations in the climate might be to blame.

This is more recent and credible.
http://useconomy.about.com/od/healthcarerefor...
The main disadvantage is that the Act could actually increase health care costs over the short term. That's because many people will receive preventive care for the first time in their lives. This could lead to treatment of heretofore unknown illnesses, driving up costs.(Source: CBO, 2009 Study on Preventive Health Care, August 7, 2009)
Most of the disadvantages are accruing to those individuals and businesses that are paying higher taxes. In addition, somewhere between 3-5 million workers could lose their existing, company-sponsored health insurance if their company finds it more cost-effective to let them buy it on their own and pay the penalty.
There is no such thing as preventative medicine. It is screening for disease, insurance doesn't prevent disease-neither does so called 'health care'.

WHO PAYS THE INCOME TAXES IN AMERICA? The list of Democrats complaining the ... We are going to take back America in 2012.~~~~~~~~~ Exclusive ...
allow me to share some enlightening data on who pays what income tax in the United States. We have a progressive (or regressive if you choose to look it the tax code correctly) in 2009, the latest available figures on income tax collection:
• The top 1%(1.4 million) paid 40.42% on income of $2.8 trillion.
• The top 2.5%( 5.65 million) paid 20.2%
• The top 5%( 7 million) paid 60%
• The top 10% paid 71.2% of all income taxes on income of $4.227 trillion.
Collected taxes :$794 billion
The bottom 50% of American taxpayers paid only 7.89 % of all Federal taxes collected !!
Sorry Chief, the very people you and Oblama attack pay the actual taxes, so it's irrelevant to you and most dems.
Thirty Fortune 500 Companies pay no INCOME tax:
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/11/03/1032...

You also failed to consider that many poor people still pay sales tax, property tax, gas tax and many other ACTUAL regressive taxes. INCOME tax is based on INCOME.

Your dumbass argument only makes sense to other morons.

Everyone knows that is the Clinton lie. It was a National Disgrace few Americans even know nor care about. The Bosnian war was not a war between Moslems and Christians, but a war fought between the defenders and the destroyers of a unified Bosnia-Hercegovina. The destroyers as we have seen through history were the Moslems. Once again Clinton was on the wrong side. To appease the Islamic world for our daily bombing of Iraq. President Clinton wanted to prove to the Muslim world that we really cared and that we were willing to destroy a Christian people to prove it. O'bomba seems to follow the same path.

What kind of drugs are you on Carol? You've actually got the gall to compare those on the left to Nazi brown shirts? Once again let's compare the Tea Party movement to the nascent Nazi movement in Germany. The Nazis were outwardly a grass roots movement but in reality was having it's strings pulled by wealthy industrialists like Siemens and Krupp. The Tea Party outwardly a grass roots movement but in reality being controlled by wealthy corporatists like the Koch brothers and their proxies like Americans for Prosperity , Freedomworks, a shill for big tobacco and ALEC.
The Nazis were anti union anti gay and anti Semitic specifically the Jews. The Tea Party is anti union, anti gay and also anti Semitic specifically toward Muslims .
The Nazis used pseudo science to bolster their beliefs about racial superiority. The Tea Party uses pseudo science to bolster their views on climate change.
I hate to break your delusional little bubble Carol but people like you might be in the majority on this thread but out in the real world you're in the minority. If you were in the majority we'd have someone like Rick Santorum in the Oval Office.
Senator Elbert Guillory is a good one Carol, he testified that we should include witch doctors in science classrooms. Of course he was elected in Louisiana where 29% of the respondents in a recent poll think that Barack Obama was responsible for the response to Katrina even though it happened more than three years before he became president.
You are insane, socialist, making up your own analogies, ignoring the fact that the NAZI's were mainly directed by their Messiah of the time, H I T L E R - who everyone feared because he used the government to punish people. Earth to idiot, but what did the IRS just do to Tea Party people? The NAZI ("Socialist Workers Party") spied on people (hmmm, NSA?) and tightly controlled news with the Ministry of Propaganda (like the liberal media today).

You are delusional. Like Hitler, Obama abuses his power and selectively enforces laws. You on the left try to ignore the constitution.

In fact the July 20 Plot assassin who tried to kill HITLER, "Count von Stauffenberg was a political conservative":

Since the beginnings of the Africa slave trade in America many Native American persons have unfortunately, to the detriment of Indian Heritage, were listed as Black Mulatto or Negro In order for white slave owners to keep an am ample supply of slaves. Many blood Indians have lost a God given Heritage due to slavery in Southern state in which approximately 24,000 to 51,000 or more full blood American Indians of color, men women and children alike, were forced by white slave owner to take part in slavery, and with that travesty starting from the first census ever taken in America Indians were falsely listed on all census records as (Negro) Black or Mulatto, an error which was passed down from generation to generation to the present. If you know your Indian and don't know why you can't find census records stating this, it is because of white census takers being instructed to ignore Indian heritage and paint mostly southern states in America with either Black or White populations. Go over you grandparents oral history and If you are a person of color and have a strong family history of Indian blood and census records that don't match, you are more that likely of Indian Heritage and have had your Heritage striped from you. Reclaim it.
"10 FEB 1798…registered free papers of “Daniel Coleman a dark brown free Negro, or Indian…formerly held as a slave by Joseph Hardaway but obtained his freedom by a judgment of the Gen’l Court.”
14 AUG 1800…registered free papers of “Hagar Jumper a dark brown Mulatto or Indian woman short bushy hair, obtained her freedom from Stephen Dance as being a descendant of an Indian.”
