Actually they should be rounded up and deported for being the criminals they are.

Good point. Most consumers lack the intelligence to know when they are getting screwed by their insurance companies and it is the duty of government to protect them.

Good sober science says we could face major problems in the near future due to climate change.
It also says that if we wait until these major effects hit, it is too late to do anything about them.
It says we need to start now to lessen the effects 20-30 years down the road.
This is what science is saying.
Here is what the right whiner, fossil fuel funded dumbasses are saying. We should ignore the science because it might costs us a few bucks.
I wonder, what will it cost when rising sea levels force coastal cities to spend billions. What will it cost when global warming turns our breadbasket into an arid region that no longer can product the crop levels it does today. What will it cost. What will it cost when the demand for A/C forces a major expansion to our electric grid.
What about these costs?
This idea that we can reduce emissions because it might cost money is just an excuse.
I guess that at least there is a good side.
Since the whiners are now discussing cost, they have admitted they've lost the argument on the existence of global warming.
First it was a lie.
Now it is cost too much.
Whiners are like Wimpy.
They want to be given a free pass on fighting global warming today saying that their children will pay for it tomorrow.
What a pack of selfish people.
So damnit Duh a Vey...has you figured out how to CAP all those underwater volcanoes altering the sea temps yet..dude-uh?????

The prognosis on the climate isn't good - but the doctor's changing his bedside manner with the people in charge of the planet's health.

The report's chair, Dr Chris Field, is worried that an apocalyptic tone will frighten politicians so much that they'll abandon the Earth to its fate.

There is nothing inevitable about the worst impacts on people and nature, Dr Field says. We can cut emissions to reduce the risks of catastrophe and adapt to some changes that will inevitably occur.

We have to re-frame climate change as an exciting challenge for the most creative minds.

Cutting local air pollution from, say coal, can also reduce carbon emissions that cause warming; creating decent homes for poor people in countries like Bangladesh can improve lives whilst removing them from the path of flood surges.

Some will criticise Dr Field for being too upbeat. But many politicians have gone deaf to the old-style warnings. Maybe it's worth a new approach.

The loons are losing it.

Can anybody read this drivel without busting out laughing?

A perspective on the UK
David Shukman
Science editor, BBC News
British winters are likely to become milder and wetter like the last one but cold spells still need to be planned for, says the UK Met Office.

Summers are likely to be hotter and drier, but washouts are still on the cards, it adds.

The assessment of future weather extremes finds the role of human influence is "detectable" in summer heatwaves and in intense rainfall.

However, the Met Office says a lot more work must be done to confirm the links.

If the study is correct, it means everything from gumboots to snowploughs and sunscreen to anoraks will still be needed.

how's the climate....
and settled science

'...31,072 U.S. scientists have signed the Petition Project, saying the issue remains decidedly unsettled....'

"The purpose of the Petition Project is to demonstrate that the claim of 'settled science' and an overwhelming 'consensus' in favor of the hypothesis of human-caused global warming and consequent climatological damage is wrong," the petition asserts. "No such consensus or settled science exists."

Over 9,000 of the petition's signatories have a Ph.D. in a scientific field.'
