it is proven science that CO2 gas int eh atmosphere creates a greenhouse effect, just as other gasses do..
life on earth would not exist as we know it without the greenhouse effect of our atmosphere...all scientists know this, yet you deny it is true...
Then you will have no problem producing a link to this empirical proof.
So we can assume that if you cannot this would be just another of your lies.

How many re-dos do you think you get?
Your comment here isn't even logical.
I nailed your lying a$$ last night when you claimed that I stated "there was no violence prior to the round-up". You failed to provide any proof of this. It was a LIE
Yes, I provide proof of my claims concerning court cases-post1123738 and your WaPo article supported it.
You are only here to heckle.
I think it is time to stop replying to you.
Actually Bundy has threatened violence & there has been violence in that area in relation to BLM land management & ranchers. That aspect made the BLM come out armed & in force.

Hillary will probably announce her Presidential candidacy around the time of the Iowa Caucus after the birth of her first grandchild. What a way to celebrate!

History lesson: When the United States looked the other way on chemical weapons

" A review of thousands of declassified government documents and interviews with former policymakers shows that U.S. intelligence and logistical support played a crucial role in shoring up Iraqi defenses against the “human wave” attacks by suicidal Iranian troops. The administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush authorized the sale to Iraq of numerous items that had both military and civilian applications, including poisonous chemicals and deadly biological viruses, such as anthrax and bubonic plague….

To prevent an Iraqi collapse, the Reagan administration supplied battlefield intelligence on Iranian troop buildups to the Iraqis, sometimes through third parties such as Saudi Arabia. The U.S. tilt toward Iraq was enshrined in National Security Decision Directive 114 of Nov. 26, 1983, one of the few important Reagan era foreign policy decisions that still remains classified. According to former U.S. officials, the directive stated that the United States would do “whatever was necessary and legal” to prevent Iraq from losing the war with Iran.

The presidential directive was issued amid a flurry of reports that Iraqi forces were using chemical weapons in their attempts to hold back the Iranians. In principle, Washington was strongly opposed to chemical warfare, a practice outlawed by the 1925 Geneva Protocol. In practice, U.S. condemnation of Iraqi use of chemical weapons ranked relatively low on the scale of administration priorities, particularly compared with the all-important goal of preventing an Iranian victory.

Thus, on Nov. 1, 1983, a senior State Department official, Jonathan T. Howe, told Secretary of State George P. Shultz that intelligence reports showed that Iraqi troops were resorting to “almost daily use of CW” against the Iranians. But the Reagan administration had already committed itself to a large-scale diplomatic and political overture to Baghdad, culminating in several visits by the president’s recently appointed special envoy to the Middle East, Donald H. Rumsfeld."

In 1988, Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein ordered chemical weapons attacks against Kurdish resistance forces, but the relationship with Iraq at the time was deemed too important to rupture over the matter. The United States did not even impose sanctions.

Without much apparent irony, two decades later Rumsfeld and other members of the then George W. Bush administration repeatedly cited Hussein’s use of chemical weapons against own people as a justification for invading Iraq.

Failure to duplicate Wood's 1909 greenhouse experiment
In 1909 the noted physicist R.W. Wood conducted an experiment aimed at demonstrating that the temperature of a greenhouse was not significantly influenced by the trapping of infrared radiation by its glass windows, but rather was the result of preventing its air from mixing with the cooler air outside the greenhouse. Wood observed less than a degree of difference between two boxes with respectively a glass and a rock salt window, see Wood's article along with comments by W.M. Connolley, to whom I am indebted for drawing Wood's experiment to my attention.
It is customary in physics to confirm experiments by repeating them before accepting them as definitive. Remarkably this custom has not been observed for this experiment, which has simply been accepted unquestioningly for the past hundred years as proof of Wood's suspicion.
We have our doubts about Wood's experiment. First it is documented so sketchily as to make it impossible to duplicate faithfully. Second, it contradicts the understanding of a century of physicists who preceded Wood, starting with Fourier in 1824. Third, calculation of the quantity of heat that should be trapped by the glass window in Wood's experiment shows that fully two-thirds of the heat entering the box fails to be transmitted back through the window, raising the question of how that heat is able to leave the box without raising its temperature significantly. Wood makes no attempt to reconcile his one observation with this elephant in the room.
Good source.

Ridiculous claims by Global Warmest— like the science is settled or the debate is over—triggered a growing realization that something was wrong.

Obama Buddy Drops the F-Bomb


Hotel-casino developer Steve Wynn and actor George Clooney offered vastly different accounts Tuesday of a dinner that ended in verbal fireworks.

Wynn said Clooney “got drunk” from downing tequila shots and stormed off after delivering an F-bomb.

The two-time Oscar winner issued the following statement in an email sent through his publicist:“There were nine people at that table ... so you can ask them.... Steve likes to go on rants.

“He called the president an asshole ... that is a fact ... I said the President was my longtime friend and then he said ‘your friend is an asshole.’... At that point I told Steve that HE was an asshole and I wasn’t going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass.

“And I walked out. There were obviously quite a few more adjectives and adverbs used by both of us. Those are all the facts. It had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with character.”

The incident occurred two weeks ago at Botero restaurant, inside Wynn’s Encore hotel.

Clooney was in Las Vegas to promote his Casamigos tequila during the Wine &Spirits Wholesalers of America convention.

Clooney and his Casamigos business partners Rande Gerber and Michael Meldman had joined Wynn and a group that included Wynn’s wife, Andrea Hissom, Larry Ruvo, founder of Southern Wine &Spirits, and two executives with celebrity powerhouse Creative Artists Agency.

Dinner had ended, and “the place was empty,” Wynn said.

Clooney took exception, Wynn said, when one of the CAA execs told a joke about former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev.

“He stood up and threw a hissy fit” at the CAA guy, Wynn said in a telephone interview, his first comments on the dust-up.

“Then he sat down and started talking about the Affordable Care Act, and that’s when I spoke up,” said Wynn, a frequent critic of Obamacare.“He didn’t like that either. I think my discussion about the Affordable Care Act was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

“When he’s drinking, he considers himself a close personal buddy of the president.

“He got up and said,‘I don’t have to listen to this (expletive) stuff. The only person who got excited at the table was George, and he ran off to another bar.”

Clooney’s partners were “mortified,” Wynn said.

“Clooney’s fun to be with when he’s sober,” Wynn added.“If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early, and don’t stay late.

“Everybody who’s in my business, the casino business, knows to take actors with a grain of salt.”
