You mistakenly assumed that I was representing the party line of the Democratic Party when I was actually referring to real progressive people. President Obama is a middle of the road president who occasionally by mistake approves legislation supported by progressives. Neither parties approve of the progressives, so your statement is irrelevant to anything that really matters.
Obama is a far left wing liberal nut job. If unleashed he would do major damage to this country. God bless America..

You wish that the president were a far left wing liberal and a nut job when he is actually an intelligent, but middle of the road politician trying to please even the right wing. You are so far right of center you can't see the difference.

He is not very intelligent. If he was he would have released his school records. He is an idealog, plain and simple like you. Obama has divided this country more now than I have ever seen in my life and you can not deny that..

I can and do deny that Obama has divided this country. You will have to look at yourself and the tea party for the source of division.

OK, I will give you that but I never had to look at the Bush, Clinton, Bush, Regan, Carter party for division! What say YOU!

So where is the proof that man has caused global warming. 5157 posts and still no proof.

There is no proof. This is a money grab like the Global Cooling of the 70's..

The proof has been there from the beginning. You have turned a blind eye to the evidence.

The following is a short list of evidence depositories.

The National Geographic Society
NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies
United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
U.S. Global Change Research Program
The National Climatic Data Center
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme ("AMAP")
The United States Navy

It is worthwhile noting that scientists, by nature, are skeptics. It takes a long time, with evidence from many sources, with peer-reviewed journals as a filter, for scientists to become convinced.

However, once a scientific result becomes established, contrary claims are treated with with the same skepticism. Contrarians misinterpret this fundamental aspect of science. They misrepresent scientific standards by complaining that their ideas are suppressed by a "scientific establishment".

Climate change taken seriously by insurance industry, study says.

December 14, 2012|By Kenneth R. Weis

A fire sparked by Superstorm Sandy ripped through the Breezy Point area of Queens in New York. Scientists say the powerful punch of such storms will be more commonplace with climate change.

Paying out billions of dollars here and billions of dollars there has made the global insurance industry a believer in climate change, according to a new study that shows insurance companies are staunch advocates for reducing carbon emissions and minimizing the risk posed by increasingly severe weather events.

“Climate change stands as a stress test for insurance, the world’s largest industry with U.S.$4.6 trillion in revenues, 7% of the global economy,” writes Evan Mills, a scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory at the UC Berkeley campus.

Climate change means more blizzards and less snow. This will be fun!

A warmer atmosphere can hold, and dump, more moisture, snow experts say. And two soon-to-be-published studies demonstrate how there can be more giant blizzards yet less snow overall each year. Projections are that that’s likely to continue with manmade global warming.…

Ten climate scientists say the idea of less snow and more blizzards makes sense: A warmer world is likely to decrease the overall amount of snow falling each year and shrink the snow season. But when it is cold enough for a snowstorm to hit, the slightly warmer air is often carrying more moisture, producing potentially historic blizzards.

"Strong snowstorms thrive on the ragged edge of temperature — warm enough for the air to hold lots of moisture, meaning lots of precipitation, but just cold enough for it to fall as snow,” said Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center.“Increasingly, it seems that we’re on that ragged edge.”

GENEVA—A new report from the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned Monday that global warming is likely to become completely irreversible if no successful effort is made to slow down the trend before 2006.

Unless greenhouse-gas emissions are drastically reduced by then, the report concludes, it will be too late to avoid inflicting a grave environmental catastrophe upon future generations.

"We have absolutely no time to waste," said Dr. William Tumminelli, lead author of the report, which stresses it is utterly crucial the world cut its carbon footprint in half by the year 2000. "If we wait until 1998 or even 1995 to really start doing something about climate change, our planet's rising temperature will already have set in motion a series of devastating and irreparable long-term consequences. We need to have strict international rules in place well ahead of 2006 or, to be blunt, many of the earth's inhabitants will be doomed."

"The situation could not possibly be more urgent," Tumminelli added.

The IPCC report—the most comprehensive study of its kind ever undertaken—estimates the failure to address global warming immediately could result in sea levels rising 6 inches by the end of the 20th century, 2000-2009 being the hottest decade ever recorded, and roughly half the Arctic ice cap melting by 2011.

I will give you the attention you so desire. After 5 post in a row from you who could resist. I didn't read a one of them because they will all no doubt return to your left wing agenda. At least you got this global warming BS back up to the top of the thread and you got a little attention from me little man..

I think that we have reached the point where every rational person who believes in making decisions based on science and available data should, if not fully believe that human beings are warming the planet by releasing greenhouse gases, at least recognize that this is what the data seem to suggest and that it is what the vast majority of scientists who study weather believe to be the case.

Recognizing this does not force anyone to oppose pipelines, support a carbon tax, or start composting and wearing hemp shoes. It just opens us up to start aiming our fiery furnace of a political system at actually solving our problems.

Go ahead, argue that the economic cost of anti-greenhouse measures doesn’t justify the benefit, especially if the planet is getting too hot. Argue that we should look for technical solutions not only to reduce carbon dioxide and methane emissions but not to suck the stuff out of the atmosphere – although then you might find yourself standing with Bill Gates and calling for more investment in R&D. If you want to wade into the science, argue that the worst-case scenarios are overstatements.

OKOK, I think that by my reply (should you bother to read it) you realize that I am not addressing these posts to you or to anyone who has no interest in, or knowledge of, basic science. You are under no obligation whatsoever to inform yourself, become a liberal, or in anyway to become aware of your environment. That said, I am curious as to why you should reply at all?

better to be suspected a fool rather than open your mouth and prove it to all.
